MATALAM, North Cotabato (MindaNews/June 28) – If there was something most people would like to continue from the administration of the PRRD, it was the Build, Build, Build program. And it’s a good thing that PBBM (President Bongbong Marcos Jr.) has included this as one of its priorities. While still a presidential candidate, Marcos Jr. vowed that he would prioritize the development of digital infrastructure while pursuing the “Build, Build, Build” infrastructure agenda.

In fact, a professor at a prominent state university suggested that the build, build, build program under the Marcos administration should focus on poor communities. This is commendable because every poverty-focused program sounds exciting. But the “how” is more complex than you might think. This is not just a case of building infrastructure in poor communities but rather a matter of contextualization and rationalization.

By contextualization, we mean where the project generates more jobs and creates more wealth so that it gives maximum return on investment in terms of socio-economic benefits and even political considerations. By rationalization, we mean where public investment would be more plausible because the benefits outweigh the costs.

If the suggestion was simply to build infrastructure as such in areas where the poor live, then I would disagree. This is not the right way to do it. Please note that I am not anti-poor, nor do I want poor communities to be excluded from the development process. It is about leaving infrastructure where it is most needed, as it generates more job opportunities and creates more wealth. This is the strategic approach to development.

The strategic importance in terms of priming the economy should be considered paramount, especially in a post-COVID scenario where economic recovery and health considerations are the basis for public investments at this stage.

For example, communication and digital infrastructure may not be built in poor communities because large corporations (both public and private) and government institutions need it more than the poor and ordinary citizens. When these companies are able to manage their operations well through such government intervention, it follows that more jobs will be generated and more wealth will be created. When the economy becomes robust, this is the time when the economic benefits must be dispersed and radiated to the countryside where the vast majority of the poor live.

Again, this is not anti-poor or anti-people. Let’s face it. The government can only help the poor if it generates more revenue through corporate taxes. It is in the same logic that the concrete roads should essentially start from the central urban centers towards the periphery. Even the rich countries have not started to build concrete roads between the countryside and the urban centers. A fortiori, the Philippines being at the bottom of the ranks of the developing countries, should adhere to this kind of development principles.

In a post-pandemic scenario where economic recovery becomes the primary concern, the name of the game is prioritization and strategizing given that we are not a wealthy country that can commit anything that comes to mind. . The idea is that the government can only feed the poor when it has food in its hands. You could say it was the old-fashioned way of giving people fish instead of teaching them how to fish. No. Before you can start fishing, the fishing gear has to come from somewhere else, because that’s what they need to get started.
I agree that the Build, Build, Build agenda may need refocusing, but infrastructure should be where it is most needed given some key considerations to accelerate economic recovery.

Dozens of non-safe-by-design flaws found in OT products https://formes.asia/dozens-of-non-safe-by-design-flaws-found-in-ot-products/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 20:56:00 +0000 https://formes.asia/dozens-of-non-safe-by-design-flaws-found-in-ot-products/ A new research project has discovered 56 vulnerabilities in operational technology (OT) devices from 10 different vendors, all of which stem from insecurely designed or implemented features rather than programming errors.

A new research project has discovered 56 vulnerabilities in operational technology (OT) devices from 10 different vendors, all of which stem from insecurely designed or implemented features rather than programming errors. This underscores that despite the increased attention these types of critical devices have received over the past decade from security researchers and malicious attackers, the industry is still not following fundamental security-by-design principles. .

“By exploiting these vulnerabilities, attackers with network access to a target device could remotely execute code, modify logic, files, or firmware on OT devices, bypass authentication, compromise credentials, cause denials of service or have various operational impacts,” researchers from security firm Forescout said in its new report.

The identified security issues, collectively referred to as OT: ICE FALL, stem from insecure engineering protocols, weak cryptographic implementations or faulty authentication schemes, insecure firmware update mechanisms, and poorly protected native features that can be abused for runtime remote code. In fact, 14% of disclosed vulnerabilities can lead to remote code execution and another 21% can lead to firmware manipulation.

Another interesting finding from this research was that many vulnerable devices had been certified to different standards applicable to OT environments such as IEC 62443, NERC CIP, NIST SP 800-82, IEC 51408/CC, IEC 62351, DNP3 Security, CIP Security and Modbus security.

“While these standards-driven hardening efforts have certainly contributed to major improvements in the areas of security program development, risk management, and architecture-level design and integration activities, these efforts have been less successful in maturing secure development lifecycles for individual systems and components,” the researchers concluded.

A History of Insecurity by Design in OT

Forescout researchers draw comparisons between their findings and those of Project base campa 10-year-old research project that aimed to expose insecurity-by-design issues in remote terminal units (RTUs), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and other controllers that make up Supervisory Control (SCADA) systems and Data Acquisition) used in industrial installations.

Then, following the discovery of sophisticated threats such as Stuxnet developed by nation states to target PLCs, researchers who participated in the Basecamp project set out to change what they called “a decade of inaction”. from ICS makers and asset owners in the aftermath of 9/11. A decade later, OT:ICEFALL shows that many of the same issues, such as obscure proprietary protocols that lack authentication and proper encryption, continue to be common in devices that run our critical infrastructure.

“The products affected by OT:ICEFALL are known to be prevalent in industries that are the backbone of critical infrastructure such as oil and gas, chemical, nuclear, power generation and distribution, manufacturing , water treatment and distribution, mining, and building automation,” the Forescout researchers said in their report. “Many of these products are sold as ‘secure by design’ or have been certified to OT security standards.”

While this default state of insecurity continues in the OT world, the number of attacks has only grown and evolved. From Stuxnet we have seen the Industroyer attack which caused power outages in Ukraine in 2016, the TRITON malware which was used in attempts to sabotage petrochemical plants in Saudi Arabia in 2017, the Industroyer2 malware which was used against electrical substations in Ukraine this year, and the INCONTROLLER APT toolkit. The security company ICS Dragos follows 19 threat groups that target ICS environments, including three that were discovered last year and demonstrated the ability to access ICS/OT networks.

The OT:ICEFALL flaws affect devices from Bently Nevada, Emerson, Honeywell, JTEKT, Motorola, Omron, Phoenix Contact, Siemens, and Yokogawa. They include condition monitors, distributed control systems (DCS), engineering workstations, RTUs, programmable logic controllers, building controllers, safety instrumented systems (SIS), SCADA systems, protocols and even logic execution.

The logic runtime is the software that interprets and executes ladder logic – the code written by engineers to act on device inputs and outputs. Phoenix Contact’s ProConOS runtime, for example, is used in multiple PLCs from different vendors, making flaws discovered there – the lack of cryptographic authentication of downloaded logic – a potential supply chain risk that leads to the execution of arbitrary code.

“Due to the lack of software bills of materials (SBOMs) and the complexity of product supply chains, it is often not immediately clear what runtime a particular PLC uses,” the researchers said in their report. “Runtimes usually have different versions with corresponding protocol differences and are subject to OEM integration decisions. A PLC manufacturer may choose to use the runtime but not the protocols, preferring to use their own, or may choose to use their own, or may choose to use their own. ‘use the protocol on a non-default basis In the absence of proactive and coordinated efforts by vendors, CVE numbering authorities, and CERTs to spread knowledge of supply chain vulnerabilities to all parties affected, the security community is forced to periodically and randomly rediscover them, resulting in CVE duplication and complicating root cause analysis.”

For example, two CVEs attributed in the past to issues in the ProConOS runtime – CVE-2014-9195 and CVE-2019-9201 – were only associated with Phoenix Contact PLCs while also affecting other vendors. An issue was later discovered in Yokogawa STARDOM controllers and was assigned CVE-2016-4860, but is actually the same issue as CVE-2014-9195, the researchers said. The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that in the past many default insecure issues like those included in OT:ICEFALL were not given CVE IDs at all because they weren’t considered traditional vulnerabilities, which made it difficult for customers to track them.

Mitigating vulnerabilities in OT devices

The Forescout team worked with the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) during the disclosure process and the agency has published their own reviews for some problems. Asset owners should install firmware patches and updates when device manufacturers make them available, but fixing some of the issues identified may involve significant engineering effort and changes, so suppliers may not solve them for a long time. In the meantime, the Forescout team recommends the following mitigation measures:

  • Discover and inventory vulnerable devices. Network visibility solutions help discover vulnerable network devices and apply appropriate control and mitigation measures.
  • Apply segmentation controls and good network hygiene to mitigate risk from vulnerable devices. Restrict external communication paths and isolate or confine vulnerable devices to areas as a mitigation control if they cannot be patched or until they can. Review firewall rules, especially whitelisted OT protocols, against SMB knowledge. Some vendors offer dedicated firewalls and switches with protocol-compatible security features.
  • Monitor rolling fixes released by affected device vendors and design a remediation plan for your inventory of vulnerable assets, balancing business risks and business continuity requirements.
  • Monitor all network traffic for suspicious activity that attempts to exploit features that are not secure by design. Use monitoring solutions with DPI capabilities to alert security personnel to these activities so appropriate action can be taken.
  • Actively source secure-by-design products and migrate to secure-by-design product variants where appropriate and possible. Assess device security posture by including security assessments in provisioning requirements.
  • Use native hardening abilities such as physical mode switches on controllers that require physical interaction before dangerous engineering operations can be performed. Some vendors offer plug-and-play solutions to simulate these capabilities at the network level for multiple controllers. Where possible, enable alerts on operational mode changes in monitoring solutions.
  • Work on reducing consequences by following Cyber-PHA and CCE methodologies. This is important to address not only the likelihood but also the impact of incidents.

After a two-year hiatus, the Houston Pre-Premiere Enrichment Program (PREP) is back for its in-person summer lineup – now in its 33rd year.

Hosted by the College of Science & Technology, the program invites middle and high school students from Houston-area school districts, including Aldine ISD, Alief ISD, Galena Park ISD, Houston ISD, Harmony Public Schools, and Spring Branch ISD.

The free four-year program continues until July 22. Teachers from some of the participating districts serve as instructors for Houston PREP classes, as well as recent UHD graduates.

Denice Cronin, a career technical education (CTE) teacher at Killough Middle School’s STEM Academy (Alief ISD), teaches first- and second-year engineering for Houston PREP, offers her perspective on the benefits of the program. Cronin heard about Houston PREP through an Alief ISD colleague.

“The biggest benefit is the enthusiasm of the students and staff. Students are exposed to a college setting, hands-on STEM curriculum, and willingly prepare for college,” said the 14-year teaching veteran. “They make friends with students from all over the city, learn firsthand how their similarities and differences create a better learning and working environment as they navigate the halls of college and say, ‘J followed this program! It was awesome!

“Exposing students to college at this age shows them that there are options. Payment options for college and jobs they may not have known about,” Cronin said. “It shows them that there are people who are interested in what they have to offer for the future. It broadens their horizons and often sparks a spark. I have students asking when do we re-enroll? It’s SAT prep, college writing, physics, computer science, logic, and intro to engineering, and they look forward to coming back every year.

For Houston PREP Director Sangeeta Gad, she realized early in her teaching career that students lacked motivation to learn math and other STEM subjects. She has therefore dedicated herself to making these topics more interesting, relevant and engaging. Gad joined UHD in the early 80’s and began his quest to breathe new life into STEM topics.

“Houston PREP provides learning experiences that go beyond the normal classroom setting,” said the math teacher. “Our hope is that students who complete the four years of the program will not only embrace possible careers, but become lifelong learners, problem solvers and decision makers.”

Gad also noted that corporate and community partnerships have influenced the continued growth of Houston PREP, which includes CenterPoint Energy, CITGO, The Powell Foundation, Schlumberger, Whelan and Cullen families. Public sector partners are the City of Houston’s Summer Food Program, the National Center for Women and Information Technology, and the Texas Department of Transportation.

“Our program provides an interactive and exciting environment, with teachers who innovate in the classroom and care about each student’s success,” Gad said. “When these students leave Houston PREP, they will have the skills and knowledge to take on the world.”

UHD Senior Riley Hardwick is a major in Safety Management with a minor in Sustainability. After graduation, she wants to work in her field of study before pursuing a graduate degree in business or law.

“Once I entered the PREP program, I enjoyed the diversity, rigor and fun that came with the PREP courses. I discovered the value of hard work, curiosity and community,” Hardwick said. “I learned to look for opportunities, to be tenacious and creative in my endeavors, and to take advantage of the opportunities that come my way.”

Since becoming a UHD Gator, Hardwick has become a member of the UHD Scholars Academy which, in turn, linked it to the Mallet familywhich awarded him one of the first Mallett Scholarships for CST/Houston Prep Alumni students which provides $2,500 per semester for five undergraduate years towards tuition.

“Without my connection to Houston PREP, I may never have come to UHD, never heard of Scholars Academy where I received the Mallett Scholarship. Today, I am a proud Gator who is grateful for all the experiences and lessons I learned…all thanks to Houston PREP.

Cronin might agree more.

“Houston PREP creates opportunities and memories that last a lifetime every summer,” Cronin said. “This program touches the lives of so many children. In a word… phenomenal.

Buzz: With inflation at its highest level in 40 years – an ugly 8.6% nationally – you’d think everything was more expensive. In fact, 93% of the 333 items tracked in the monthly inflation report were more expensive in May than a year ago.

Source: My trusty spreadsheet looked at the latest consumer price index for May, looking at 12-month price changes.

glass half full

Well, 93% isn’t 100%, so here are eight goods and services that government inflation statistics show could be “bargains”. This is probably a rare slice of the economy where consumer demand is down.

1. Smartphones top this ranking with 19.9% ​​less expensive in one year. I guess there’s a company that hasn’t released a killer new product in a few years. So, people are not rushing to buy a new cell phone, traders are reducing prices accordingly.

2. Admission to sporting events is 10.8% cheaper. Many teams are still suffering from the hangovers of the pandemic shutdowns. Logic says ticket deals are being offered to draw fans to the ballpark or arena.

3. Televisions are 9.5% cheaper. Everyone bought a new TV — maybe even two — during pandemic lockdowns. With a “return to somewhat normal life,” outdoor lifestyles seem like a better investment. And I wonder how many new TVs do you need?

4. Cruise fares are 5.3% cheaper. I’m going to ask a simple question: “Who wants to be stuck in tight quarters with lots of strangers?” Cruises are not at the top of the popularity list these days.

5. Computer software and accessories are 3.9% less expensive. As more workers and students return to the office or classroom, I guess the need to upgrade or add software to one’s personal computers is decreasing.

6. Other intercity transportation—that is, trains and buses, not planes—is down 3.6%. Let’s say again, crowded conditions are not popular. Operators must incentivize customers through price.

seven. Men’s pants and shorts are 1.6% cheaper. I guess the guys working in the office probably just dusted off the clothes they hadn’t worn in two years.

8. Jewelry is 1.2% cheaper. I’ve read that millennials are less interested in expensive accessories than previous generations. Maybe they spend all their money buying new houses or the high rent in luxury apartments.

Half empty glass

Of those 333 goods and services tracked by the CPI, 39% of all goods and services tracked jumped 10% or more in the 12 months to May.

iPhone 13 Pro features a ProMotion display with refresh rates up to 120Hz for smoother scrolling.

CHARLOTTE- The Charlotte Entrepreneurs Organization, HE Charlotteannounced this week that seven companies recently graduated from the organization’s business accelerator program.

To graduate, the company must meet or exceed $1 million in business revenue, the organization said in a statement.

In the Triangle, exceeding $1 million in annual revenue – or employing 10 or more full-time workers – would qualify a company to join the Triangle Tweeners list, the 2021 edition which was released earlier this morning.

The seven Charlotte entrepreneurs who run businesses that have reached the million dollar revenue milestone are:

Charlotte’s Accelerator Program Graduates 2 Entrepreneurs After Reaching $1M in Revenue

Revenue growth is significant

Bukolt said in a statement released by the organization that graduating from the program was incredible, after four years of attending the program to grow his business.

“I don’t believe I could have evolved without the support of my coaches and fellow EOAs,” Bukolt said. “Because of the deep learning and accountability, my business revenue has increased nearly 10 times since the program began.”

Brian Delaneythe co-founder of Skookum, which was acquired by GlobalLogic in 2019 (which was later acquired by Japanese conglomerate Hitachi Ltd. for $9.6 billion in 2021), now chairs the Charlotte Entrepreneurs Organization.

“It is incredibly rewarding to watch these companies take off as they navigate the high-pressure world of entrepreneurship,” Delaney said in a statement released by the organization. This program was created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurswhich gives participants a unique perspective from personal experience that you don’t see in other programs.

NPA urges Senate HELP Committee to remove supply of dietary supplements from FDASLA https://formes.asia/npa-urges-senate-help-committee-to-remove-supply-of-dietary-supplements-from-fdasla/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 13:05:16 +0000 https://formes.asia/npa-urges-senate-help-committee-to-remove-supply-of-dietary-supplements-from-fdasla/ The Natural Products Association (NPA; Washington, DC) sent a letter to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) requesting the removal of the dietary supplement provision from the FDA Safety and Landmark Advancement Act (FDASLA).

The Natural Products Association (NPA; Washington, DC) sent a letter to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) requesting the removal of the dietary supplement provision from the FDA Safety and Landmark Advancement Act (FDASLA). FDASLA would establish a mandatory product listing requirement for dietary supplements.

In the letter to Committee Chair Patty Murray and Ranking Member Richard Burr, the manufacturer questions the logic of including a dietary supplement provision in the FDA user fee reauthorization and giving the FDA new regulatory authorities and new resources if the effective use of the resources currently available to it fails. .

“In the history of user fee reauthorization, dietary supplements have never been included, and rightly so. Dietary supplements are not prescription drugs, generic drugs, biosimilars, or medical devices. , which the reauthorization was always intended to cover. Also, our industry has never paid user fees,” wrote Manufacturer. “I can tell you that when I was the chief regulator of dietary supplements, when we had some of the most effective enforcement action in the history of the program, we had more than enough tools to find a specific problem with a product or ingredient, which is why the NPA objected to the Dietary Supplements List Act of 2022 and FDASLA provisions.

“The NPA strongly urges the committee to abandon this section and redirect authorized spending to higher priority challenges facing CFSAN. The FDASLA imposes an excessive administrative burden on the FDA that exceeds the FDA’s current scientific safety assessment when companies want to introduce a new supplement to the market. Giving the FDA the power to administratively decide what should be listed will only be abusive, causing extreme economic harm,” continues Manufacturer. “Additionally, as administrative disagreements arise (i.e. CBD, NAC, etc.) between industry and the FDA over the status of the ingredient rather than a scientific rendering, should this become law, it would remove a product from a list and market solely on their biases and do it administratively, without any due process.
