Cybersecurity skills gap: How this startup aims to solve the talent crisis

In 2008, just a year after large-scale, state-sponsored cyberattacks on Estonia, NATO set up its Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Estonia’s capital, Tallinn, to strengthen its capabilities and improve cooperation and information-sharing among its members and partners.

Among the contractors who helped build a military-class cyber range for NATO’s cyber exercises, were IT-infrastructure and security specialists Jaanus Kink, Margus Ernits, and Taavi Must. A few years later, they decided to found a startup based on the experiences they had gained.

“We saw how useful cyber exercises are for defense teams. Once we realized that this kind of learning experience could help cyber teams around the world, we started to build RangeForce – a platform for hands-on training of cyber defenders and running cyber exercises at scale,” RangeForce CEO Must tells ZDNet.

(Bloomberg) — Bit by bit, billionaire Ronald O. Perelman is parting with his treasures.His Gulfstream 650 is on the market. So is his 257-foot yacht. Movers hauled crates of art from his Upper East Side townhouse after he struck a deal with Sotheby’s to sell hundreds of millions of dollars of works.He’s unloaded his stake in Humvee-maker AM General, sold a flavorings company that he’d owned for decades and hired banks to find buyers for stock he holds in other companies.What in the world is going on with Ron Perelman? His exploits on and off Wall Street have been tabloid fare in New York since the go-go 1980s.

Jobs ‘crisis’ twice as bad as previous recession

A number of household names have announced redundancy plans since the pandemic began

Employers in Britain are planning more than twice as many redundancies than they did at the height of the last recession, new figures show.

About 180,000 job cuts were planned from January to March 2009, while 380,000 were planned from May to July this year.

Completed redundancies could reach 735,000 this autumn, researchers say.

The figures were obtained by an Institute for Employment Studies (IES) Freedom of Information request.

Social distancing measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 brought large parts of the UK economy to a standstill, forcing workers to stay at home, closing shops and bringing transport to a halt.

As a result, many businesses have been forced to consider reducing their workforces by making employees redundant.

Employers in England, Scotland and Wales must notify the Insolvency Service if they plan to

How an unprecedented, indefinite crisis forced education leaders to change the ways school districts operate

Snowstorms. Hurricanes. Shootings. Educators and the students they serve have long been at the mercy of crises; most have some sort of plan for disasters.

But with coronavirus, a new national emergency forced districts to rewrite their playbooks. While it’s obvious how COVID-19 changed the structure of school, what’s less known is how districts had to overhaul their operations.

To continue working safely, they had to change, and fast: Lengthy in-person meetings went online, where districts had more control over interactions and public input. Transparency laws changed. Some districts, like Seattle Public Schools, enabled superintendents to spend large sums of money without bureaucracy through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. And many local districts did not let reporters observe their first days of classes, citing privacy concerns and technical issues.

Pa. could lose manufacturing jobs because of public transportation’s funding crisis

Public transportation’s funding crisis amid the COVID-19 pandemic could cost jobs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey by impacting billions in spending on goods from rail cars to construction services.

An increasingly dire financial situation brewing for New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the nation’s largest transportation network, could slash its spending on vendors across the United States, which saw nearly $23 billion distributed nationwide between 2011 and 2018, according to a recent report from Reinvent Albany, a New York-based government watchdog group.

The MTA spent $1.7 billion on vendors in New Jersey and $1.4 billion on ones in Pennsylvania during that time, more than in any other states aside from New York, according to the “Investing in the MTA is Investing in America” report published in June.

In Pennsylvania, the MTA sunk its money into rail-car manufacturer Bombardier Transportation in Pittsburgh and Allied Universal Security Services in Conshohocken, according

Tackling the global digital skills crisis


The global digital skills crisis is worsening and here’s why – in 10 years time, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF), the jobs of 1.2 billion employees worldwide – the equivalent of half of the global workforce – will have undergone varying levels of change due to the adoption of technologies, such as automation and artificial intelligence (AI). 

While most staff will operate alongside machines rather than being replaced by them (only 5% of the workforce), a huge nine out of 10 will require digital skills to be able to work effectively, exacerbating a shortage of expertise that is already troubling. 

To make matters worse, another WEF report entitled ‘Accelerating the Digital Inclusion in the New Normal’ indicates that 47% of the world’s population currently remains “unconnected”. This means that in lower-income economies, an average of only 32% of the population has basic digital skills, which includes being

How higher education’s own choices left it vulnerable to the pandemic crisis

This article was produced by a partnership of and The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit, independent news organization focused on inequality and innovation in education.

When Missouri Western State University declared a financial emergency in the spring, it was widely assumed to have been the fault of the coronavirus pandemic.

But that was only part of the problem.

In the decade since the last recession, Missouri Western had kept hiring, increasing the number of full-time faculty by 5 percent as its undergraduate enrollment was plummeting by nearly 25 percent. Other spending, too, continued to go up. The university overspent its budget by millions of dollars in each of the last five years. Cash reserves sank.

Some members of the institution’s own governing board were surprised when they were confronted with these facts. By then, the president who had overseen that spending had retired.

It is almost 30 years since Australia last slid into recession, a now distant time when no one had heard of the internet and the Property Council had just appointed a young researcher called Scott Morrison.

The then treasurer, Paul Keating, famously said it was the “recession we had to have”, but the slump prompted structural reforms and the economic scars were quickly healed as Australia rode the Chinese tiger to unprecedented prosperity.

Fast-forward three decades and the path out of recession does not look so simple with unemployment climbing to more than 1 million. One expert says “nobody is safe” from redundancy.

The combination of a recession and the coronavirus lockdown laid over the top poses a profound economic challenge for the future labour market.

Low-hanging fruit such as productivity improvements and the transition to a service-based, global-facing economy have
