Data protection disputes set to surge in the next five years

This is the focus of a recent research study conducted by the School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary University of London in coordination with Pinsent Masons law firm.The study found that disputes resulting from data and security breaches is expected to rise by as much as 191% in the next five years alone. 67% of respondents indicated that data breaches caused by employees was very common. This is compared to 70% that stated third parties are at least somewhat commonly responsible.The study, which was conducted with 340 legal experts from around the world, also found that data protection disputes are also expected to increase as much as 104%.Data protection issues currently make up 13% of all telecoms, media and technology (TMT) disputes. This increase would have a huge impact on IT companies’ bottom lines.The importance of substantial data protectionFor any company that deals with data of a significant and/or personal nature, data security and the legal costs that come with it are a big deal. When a large corporation such as a bank or a retail giant suffers a breach of its data stores, thousands and even millions of people are affected.Information such as a person’s name, email address, financial information, health records, and passwords can be bought and sold on the black market quickly after it has been illegally obtained. This information can lead to a cascade of problems for the individual, including identity theft and financial ruin.This became shockingly true for the 30 million people that used the popular infidelity site, Ashley Madison. A data breach on its servers had fallout that went well beyond simple identity theft. News of the breach, and the resulting data dump that outed thousands of government employees and officials in the United States alone, resulted in suicides and countless incidents of extortion.For Avid Dating Life and Avid Life Media, the companies behind Ashley Madison, this breach could result in hundreds of millions of dollars in damages from class-action lawsuits being filed in several countries.The challenge of protecting IoT dataOver the past year, the security of the Internet of Things has been brought into question. The widespread outage of popular websites like Amazon and Twitter that occurred in 2016 happened because IoT devices. These devices transmit and receive sometimes sensitive information, were found susceptible to malicious software injection.Our home’s security systems, medical devices, and even our cars are becoming full-fledged computers with Internet connections. The type of data they gather and send to the cloud ranges from innocuous status updates to live video streams.Protecting the IoT is paramount to preserving the security of its users’ data and the financial well being of their creators.

OSU womens volleyball takes home NIU Invitiational title

Daniel Chi / For The LanternThen-senior outside hitter Mari Hole blocks the ball during a match against Northwestern Nov. 7, 2012, at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.The No. 23 Ohio State women’s volleyball team took home the NIU Invitational championship with a 3-0 victory against Liberty Friday and a pair of 3-2 wins against Green Bay and Northern Illinois Sunday.Junior setter Taylor Sherwin, who dished out a total of 158 assists during the tournament, led the Buckeyes to the wins over Liberty and Green Bay before capping the weekend off with a victory against host Northern Illinois, which marked win No. 300 for Coach Geoff Carlston.Carlston said he was happy to see his team keep their composure in high stress situations, especially in the tournament finale.“We played almost perfect volleyball in the fifth set, with three freshmen on the floor at the same time.” Carlston said.The Buckeye coach said all of the freshmen contributed during the tournament, but he was particularly impressed with the play of outside hitter Kylie Randall, who made her collegiate debut against Northern Illinois.“She’s (going to) be an incredible player,” Carlston said. “Her first eight swings in college were kills, eight swings, eight kills, no errors.”Randall said in an email she could feel the intensity of the situation but found her comfort level with help from Sherwin.“I settled in when Taylor Sherwin looked at me and said be ready (to) go,” Randall said. “Then I knew it was time to make an impact.”Randall finished the finale second on the team with 18 kills and senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Leary led the team with a career-high 26 kills.Sherwin said via email that she did not realize she had put out an MVP caliber performance until after the tournament wrapped up, but she wanted to give credit to Randall and the other attackers.“That’s what matters most to me,” she said. “For me to be able to put them in the best situations.”While Sherwin and company put on an impressive display, Carlston said he recognizes that there is room for improvement.“We put in a new offensive system about a week ago,” Carlston said. “We just (have to) keep building on that.”Leary experienced some problems in the new offense, picking up 16 errors against Green Bay.“I wasn’t making good shot selections and adjustments throughout that whole game,” Leary said in an email. “But it motivated me to redeem myself in the next game.”She certainly stepped up in the finale against Northern Illinois, adding 22 digs to her career-high kill total.“I was very happy to see 22 digs on the stat sheet,” Leary said. “It shows the improvement in an area I needed and have been working on.”Beyond Leary’s performance, senior libero Davionna DiSalvatore said the team’s defense was strong throughout the tournament.“Everyone did a really great job taking care of the tips, rolls and back row attacks,” DiSalvatore said in an email.While the team performed well in both facets of the game, they still found time to honor their coach’s milestone, even though Carlston said he was not aware that it had been his 300th win.He said the players had noisemakers waiting in the locker room after the match.OSU returns to Columbus for an exhibition match against the Polish National Team at St. John Arena at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday. read more

Baseball Ohio State hopes to rebound in home opener

Ohio State then-junior infielder Kobie Foppe (2) connects with a pitch in the third inning of the game against Ohio University in April 10. Ohio State won 4-0. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe Ohio State baseball team will aim to end its five-game skid at home this weekend. The Buckeyes (7-9) will host Lipscomb (9-6) in a three-game series beginning their nine-game homestand on Friday. The Bisons come into the series on a hot streak. They have won five straight games, outscoring opponents 41-14 over that span. Ohio State, on the other hand, has not recorded a win in more than a week of play. The Buckeyes have been outscored 42-25 over their past five games. Lipscomb has a team batting average of .297, which ranks the Bisons inside the top 50 in the nation. The offense has been fueled by a trio of players. Redshirt sophomore designated hitter and catcher Chris Bashlor has a .434 batting average and 16 RBIs. Sophomore center fielder Maddux Houghton and senior third baseman Zeke Dodson are both batting above .360. Lipscomb’s offense is averaging 7.07 runs a game also adding 25 stolen bases on 29 attempts. Redshirt senior left fielder Tevin Symonette leads the team with 7 steals. Symonette is also batting .269 on the year. The Lipscomb pitching staff is made up of two solid starters, who are a combined 4-0.Senior starting pitcher Chris Kachmar has a 2.74 ERA and three wins in his four starts. Freshman starting pitcher Scott Elgin boasts a 3.65 ERA in four appearances for the Bisons. The Bisons hold a 4.67 ERA, while walking an average of six batters a game. Extra base runners will provide Ohio State’s offense an opportunity to put up larger numbers and improve upon its average of 5.31 runs a game. Senior left fielder Brady Cherry has provided a bright spot for the inconsistent Buckeyes. Cherry is hitting .344 to go along with a team-high 13 RBIs and four home runs. The pitching staff will also look to regain its rhythm, after allowing five or more runs in each of their past six contests. Ohio State will begin its series against Lipscomb at 5:05 p.m. Friday at Bill Davis Stadium. This will be followed up with a 3:05 p.m. Saturday game and a 1:05 p.m. Sunday finale. read more

Real Madrid drop their first points in San Mames

first_imgFirst points dropped by Real Madrid without Ronaldo, they were close to losing at San Mames against Athletic but Isco scored the equalizer for a point.This Saturday was the first day in which Real Madrid suffered the first moment in which they know they are less better without Cristiano Ronaldo, who would’ve scored in San Mames against Athletic without question today. After so much hype directed at the key players like Gareth Bale or Karim Benzema, they weren’t able to deliver a good performance in a very complicated stadium where they almost lost the match if it wasn’t for Isco’s equalizer during the second half. Although the Welsh winger did provide the assist for the Spaniard during the second half, he wasn’t able to produce more moments of brilliance as he was doing at the start of the season and he crashed hard against a very compact Athletic defense. But the biggest player of this match as it usually is in these types of scenarios was the crowd in San Mames, they proved that they are amongst the toughest in all of European football and they became a real problem for the Real Madrid players in every single ball they touched. There is no doubt that the spirit of the old Cathedral lives on in the new one, they are the ones who made the biggest difference against Real Madrid.Unai Simón, un futuro muy presente. #MovistarPartidazo pic.twitter.com/kxHqiiVlJk— La Casa del Fútbol en Movistar+ (@casadelfutbol) September 15, 2018But on the local side, the Basque team had an ace under their sleeve and we finally realized why they let Kepa go that easily. Young goalkeeper Unai Simon was Athletic’s unsung hero during the match by piling up the saves against all of Real Madrid’s forwards who got frustrated against this kid’s brilliant interventions, the match could’ve easily ended with Los Blancos’ victory by more than four goals if it hadn’t been for Unai. Past the half hour of the game, Susaeta combined with De Marcos and he sent a pass to the heart of the box where both Muniain and Williams were waiting to bury the ball in. Iñaki failed his strike at first but Iker was able to score the goal and make San Mames explode with cheers because they were already ahead in the scoreline. Real Madrid kept trying to penetrate Athletic’s defense during the rest of the match but they had a really hard time getting past Unai Simon, they were finally able to get an equalizer during the second half after Gareth Bale found Isco’s header that the young Athletic Club goalkeeper wasn’t able to reach in time. But Simon’s performance wasn’t stained by this goal, he was truly the man of the match against Real Madrid.James Rodriguez, Real MadridZidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.⚖ Points shared at San Mamés. #RMLiga pic.twitter.com/lraMI4aSaQ— Real Madrid C.F. ???? (@realmadriden) September 15, 2018It’s hard to understand why Julen Lopetegui still hasn’t put his trust on some of the new arrivals like Mariano, the new Real Madrid number ‘7’ is the type of player who can solve complicated situations like the one they had today at San Mames. This draw marks the first points that Los Blancos drop during the season and watching the development of the full match, it’s clear by now that the squad will struggle without a player like Cristiano Ronaldo who was there exactly for days like this Saturday. The next month will be really difficult for Real Madrid as they now have to start the Champions League next week against AS Roma, and then one week later they will have another dangerous trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium where they will face Sevilla FC in one of the most exciting fixtures of September. Julen Lopetegui needs to start trusting his new field players a little bit more, otherwise, he will keep dropping points like he did today and that can be very harmful to a club like Real Madrid this early in the season.What did you think about the match, who was your favorite player from either squad at San Mames? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more
