Who's awake right now?

In the past two years, 51 per cent of Indian organisations surveyed experienced a data breach and 56 per cent experienced a cyber security incident, revealed the study conducted by US-based Ponemon Institute on behalf of IBM Security.

Of the organisations that do have a CSIRP in place, 57 per cent do not test plans regularly or at all.

Only 23 per cent reported using automation significantly in their organisation, the findings showed.

"In India, Incident Response (IR) strategy is at a nascent stage and organisations are beginning to conceive this as an integral part of risk mitigation and resilience plan," said Vaidyanathan Iyer, Security Software Leader, IBM India/South Asia.

"Considering the lack of a well-developed and tested IR in an organisation's cyber resiliency strategy, enterprises need to evaluate and implement the right tools at the earliest," Iyer added.

The IBM-Ponemon study found that globally, 77 per cent of respondents indicated they do not have a cybersecurity incident response plan applied consistently across the enterprise.

World's deepest indoor dive pool will be as deep as a 15-storey building

Updated Apr 10, 2019 | 10:47 IST | Times Now Digital

The world's deepest pool is being constructed in Poland and will be 45 metres deep. This means that the indoor diving pool will have a depth of a 15-storey building.

The pool will facilitate a transparent, underwater tunnel for spectators who don't want to get wet.

Mszczonow: Poland will be getting the world's deepest indoor pool that will allow people to swim 45 metres below the surface. The Deepspot diving pool is being constructed as a training site for divers. The indoor pool will have a capacity of 8,000 cubic metres which has 27 times more water holding capacity than the regular 25-metre pools.
The pool will be built at Mszczonow, which is about an hour-long drive from Poland's capital city, Warsaw. According to reports, it will be as deep as a 15-storey building.
The temperature of water in the pool will be warmer than the standard pool temperatures to give the divers a more comfortable diving experience, reported AFP.
The pool's water will be filtered 15 times in a day so as to keep it clean and transparent for the divers and the spectators.

The pool will facilitate a transparent underwater tunnel for spectators who don't want to get wet and will be convenient for both beginners and experienced divers. Conference, training, and hotel rooms are also said to have an inside view of the world's deepest pool.
Currently, the Italian Y-40 Deep Joy, located in Montegrotto Terme resort area, near Venice, is the deepest pool in the world.
According to a report by CNN , Deepspot will not enjoy the world's deepest pool's tag for long as a deeper pool is expected to be constructed in Colchester, England by 2020. This pool would have a depth of 50 metres.

Google Maps could start showing ads and its bound to get messy

JC Torres - Apr 10, 2019, 11:54 pm CDT


“Google” is now also a verb because of how search has become so ingrained in our modern lives. There is, however, one other Google product that has subtly cemented its role in our lives. Google Maps has changed the way we travel and navigate partly because it made what was once a paid subscription feature available for all and for free. The latter isn’t going to change but Google may soon be looking for ways to profit from its lead by, what else, placing ads in Google Maps.

No, you’re not about to see ads pop up left and right in Map views, or at least we hope not. That is going to make using Google Maps not only annoying but even dangerous and we hope Google has more sense than that. Instead, Google will do what it does best and place those ads in search results.

Given Maps’ thousands if not millions of users, it is ripe for the picking for sponsored content and search results. You, know, the same ones you see in Google Search even before you could see the results you actually searched for. Some people do search directly in Maps rather than via Google Search so it might make sense to put those sponsored suggestions there.

Google isn’t shy about wanting indeed monetize a product they’ve been offering for free for more than a decade now. But they’re also being careful on how to proceed. Any disruptive change, especially when it comes to ads, could spark a riot. Then again, it practically has a monopoly on the maps market.

And that is the other thing it has to be wary of. Google is already facing investigations and fines, especially in Europe, over anti-competitive practices in areas where it is virtually unchallenged. Placing sponsored content in Maps search results could open up yet another can of legal worms.
