Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Steve Riley is a Field CTO at Netskope . According to a recent survey from the Cloud Security Alliance , cloud issues and misconfigurations remain the leading causes of breaches and outages—and 58% of respondents report concerns about security in the cloud. Their worries are well-founded. Nearly every day, we see examples of a company's sensitive data spilling out of leaky clouds . According to my company's July 2021 Cloud and Threat Report , "More than 35% of all workloads are exposed to the public internet within AWS, Azure and GCP, with RDP servers—a popular infiltration vector for attackers—exposed in 8.3% of workloads." The core to targeting cloud security failures at their root is an assessment of configuration errors. However, organizations should be doing more to hold up their end of the shared responsibility model for cloud security with file sharing. Broadly, clouds offer two kinds of file … [Read more...] about Everyone’s Invisible Cloud Security Problem: Open File Shares

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin It was a rocky week for Tesla shares– until Musk’s early Friday tweet. That helped the electric vehicle maker regain some lost ground. With a single tweet at 5:44 AM Friday, Tesla and SpaceX chief Elon Musk simultaneously placed his $44 billion Twitter takeover on hold and demonstrated the platform’s power to move markets. Twitter shares, which plunged in pre-market trading early Friday, ended the day down 9.7%, while shares of Musk’s electric vehicle maker rallied 5.7% Friday to close an otherwise challenging week down 11.1%. The fortune of the world’s richest person–worth an estimated $232.5 billion–rose by $9.5 billion Friday. His losses for the week were cut to $23.4 billion. The divergent fortunes of Twitter and Tesla shareholders are no surprise to Columbia University law professor John C. Coffee, an expert on corporate governance. “The two stocks are logically inversely related, since what is good for Twitter … [Read more...] about Elon Musk’s Early Morning Tweet Sends Twitter Shares Crashing, But He Ends The Day Billions Of Dollars Richer
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin A glance at some of the most high profile women-owned businesses that garnered large scale investments reveals an interesting trend: many that reach the $1 Billion tend to fall into “traditional women-focused” categories such as retail and fashion (see: Spanx and Stitchfix .) While obstacles undoubtedly remain in place, some sectors are lagging behind others. Take for example, the institutional barriers women in fintech face when attempting to secure capital. No one knows about the gender battles of fintech better than Sallie Krawcheck, who has spent the past few decades trying to bring more women into the industry, from securing more funding for women-owned businesses to convincing more women to take control of their personal financial investments. Krawcheck has been referred to as the most powerful woman on Wall Street. In 2014, she created Ellevest , an investment platform and financial literacy program with a … [Read more...] about After Raising $53 Million For Ellevest, Sallie Krawcheck Shares Concerns Around The Series B Cliff
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin One area of business where women dominate the statistics is a sector of the publishing industry. As a result, the number of female literary agents has steadily increased over time. According to Zippia, 58.5% of agents are women. The publishing landscape has changed with the advancement of technology, making self-publishing more accessible and streamlined. These changes impact the desire, the need and the chances of signing with a literary agent. Even though more authors are turning to print-on-demand options to publish their books, traditional publishing still has prestige. It’s been reported that the odds of working with a literary agent are 1 in 6,000, based on the number of inquiries one receives and the number of new authors the agent is looking to sign for the year. For over two decades, Jennifer Unter, founder of the Unter Agency, has helped new authors land deals with publishing houses. As a respected agent … [Read more...] about How This Literary Agent Built An Established Agency, Shares Best Practices For Signing A Contract

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Topline What might be a lost painting by Pablo Picasso was spotted at the home of Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines and the widow of dictator Ferdinand Marcos–who allegedly embezzled billions of dollars from the Philippines before he was ousted–after her son Ferdinand Marcos Jr. won the presidential election this week. Key Facts After his victory in this week’s election, the family released images of Ferdinand Marcos Jr. celebrating with his mother at her home, and Picasso’s “Reclining Woman VI” appears on the wall of a sitting room above a sofa. The painting was one of eight targeted by the Philippines’ government in a 2014 seizure of the Marcos’ assets, but the one seized by the corruption court was later found to be a replica , according to Andres Bautista, the former chairman of the agency tasked with recovering the Marcos family’s ill-gotten wealth It’s unclear if the … [Read more...] about Missing Picasso Found?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin This kind of inflation is new for a lot of people in the U.S. and Europe. The high levels that typified the 1970s have not been a feature. Even though inflation has raised prices of a basic car in the U.K. since 1980 about 500%, the creeping inflation we’ve “enjoyed” for so long does not have your eyes bugging out at retail or when you fill up with gas or get a utility bill like the inflation that’s in full flow now. For the record, I did say here on Forbes that this was on the way and here it is, so what I’m about to say is not coming from the type of punditry that predicts what has just happened. The call is: do the Fed and others have a game plan that will work in detail or are they winging it and likely to suffer a terrible “lack of policy failure.” A central bank failure means we will crash into depression or rocket into hyperinflation, so it’s the key call. My thesis is this: Inflation is always and everywhere a … [Read more...] about Is Hyperinflation Coming?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The stock market keeps falling and falling because, for the first time in 14 years, there is nobody there to catch it. The “Fed put” has expired. The genesis of the Federal Reserve’s implicit put—the notion that the Fed will fix any decline—was the 2008 Financial Crisis. The financial system was on the ropes and the stock market itself became “too big to fail” as far as the Fed was concerned. Then-Chairman Ben Bernanke printed a bunch of money, boosted the market and was heralded a financial hero. Since then, the Fed has been reluctant to let the stock market drop. Anytime the S&P 500 has a hiccup or correction, the central bank has stepped in to print money, and this liquidity stabilizes stock prices. This implicit “insurance” has been called the Fed put. It’s a word play on options investing. When we buy puts, we are generally buying insurance on our portfolio. Puts rise in value as stock prices drop. … [Read more...] about The Best Dividend For A Bear Market
