      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Cyber attacks on banks, insurance firms rise

2 posts in this topic

Cyberattacks on IT systems of banks and insurance companies are on the rise worldwide, according to a survey released Thursday.


Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu's study showed that nearly 83 percent of respondents said their systems had been compromised in the past year, compared with 39 percent in 2003. Nearly 40 percent of the respondents whose systems were attacked reported financial losses.


The study is based on interviews with senior security officers from 100 of the top global financial institutions.


In spite of increasing security attacks, not every company's security budget is growing. About 5 percent of those surveyed said their security budgets remained flat, while 10 percent had their budgets reduced from the previous year. The percentage of companies that have fully deployed antivirus measures declined to 87 from of 96 in the previous year. And one-third felt security technologies in their companies are not being used effectively.
