Indeed, no later than November 2019, Agrawal proclaimed himself “”crypto-naive”In a fireside chat on Twitter campus with cryptocurrency entrepreneur Joseph Lubin. A little over a week later, Agrawal joined Dorsey on a trip to Nigeria, where Agrawal met the local Bitcoin community. Chris Maurice, CEO of the YellowCard stock exchange, who attended the meetings, recalls that Agrawal, like Dorsey, was “extremely curious” on the subject. “They had a strong preference for listening and learning, as opposed to being the center of attention,” recalls Maurice.

A few months later, Agrawal was instrumental in launching bluesky, a Twitter-funded initiative to develop a protocol—potentially underpinned by a blockchain—Build decentralized social networks, to replace proprietary platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. The project was first run from a private server on Matrix, a secure communications platform, before moving to a public Discord channel. “hiding, more observant, more listening than pushing hard through his agenda.”

In Henshaw-Plath’s view, the choice to appoint Agrawal as CEO indicates that Twitter will be working seriously on decentralization and crypto. “I suspect that Twitter will continue to experiment with various blockchain tricks, although I have no idea what that would look like,” he says. He describes Twitter’s internal politics as a constant duel between technologists like Dorsey who advocate a more open and decentralized structure and businessmen focused on monetization. “Parag is definitely one of the people who thinks Twitter is fundamental infrastructure and is motivated by the implementation of interesting technology. “

But some crypto folks don’t see Agrawal’s involvement in bluesky as a badge of merit. Carter says the project has a reputation for being slow. “It’s a bit stagnant,” he says. More generally, he is skeptical about the chances that a company like Twitter, especially after Dorsey’s departure, could really lead to a decentralization of social networks. “I would expect to see some sort of crypto social media platform developed at some point, but I think it would happen externally, not within an established Silicon Valley company,” Carter said. .

Mati Greenspan, founder and CEO of cryptocurrency investment consultancy firm Quantum Economics, is also dismissive. “We can either assume that bluesky is building their protocol very, very quietly, and it’s a massive project, or we can assume it’s kind of on the back burner and not a priority,” he says.

Henshaw-Plath retorts that building a blockchain protocol must be slow, for its own good. “It’s a process; it involves a lot of people. Bluesky could be faster; there could be more to do with it. But it’s also a mistake to rush too fast, ”he said. He believes that Agrawal’s own temperament, which he describes as that of a “thoughtful consensus builder”, means that he will be able to make Twitter a powerful force in the development of such technologies.

Blog post sponsored by ReachOut Technology

Over the past few years, M&A activity has exploded in the IT channel. Experts predict that the managed services market will reach $ 329.1 billion in 2025 in a fast-growing industry, while simultaneously consolidating. In 2019, two-thirds or more of MSPs were considering being bought out by a larger agency, with 20% of large agencies considering purchasing an MSP. Ongoing pressures from COVID-19 have kept these trends on track. Even if the forecast drops to 10%, small to medium-sized PSMs should be open to opportunities.

What does this unprecedented level of activity mean for your MSP business?

According to a recent IT Glue survey, 53% of the 501 companies on the 2018 Channel Futures MSP 501 list were planning to merge or be acquired within two years. There are several main reasons for this M&A activity within the MSP space.

Baby boomers bow out

Channel e2e reported that thousands of baby boomer owners were looking to leave their businesses to capture the equity in the businesses they started.

Customers demanding a “one-stop-shop”

There is no denying that Managed Information Security (IS) services and IT services are combined. This makes more sense to the consumer when looking for a full service. If you don’t provide all the services that customers demand, you risk going for one-stop competitors.

Lagging behind IT trends

When they focus on growth, many companies stop focusing on innovation, new technologies and advanced team training. Customers continue to grow their own businesses and want the latest solutions. Skills and resources can often fall behind or be out of reach due to limited capital.

Short of money

Providing greater service coverage and growing your MSP business always comes with growing cash flow needs.

Remote, remote, remote

The acquisition of MSP can experience a meteoric rise as the world no longer requires companies to remain physical or in the same zip code. MSPs that come together can now easily take market share in any region.

Boost business skills

In addition to giving you the skills you need to keep abreast of new technologies and customer expectations, weaknesses in areas such as processes and methodology, compliance or even sales and marketing. could be corrected by merging or acquiring an MSP with complementary skills. .

Investors see MSPs and MSSPs as great opportunities

The majority of PSMs are “lean”, so growth prospects are good, especially when they have strong relationships with their clients. Channel Futures reports that VCs are taking over MSPs and OEMs to create powerful entities. Valuations are high and capital relatively cheap, making IT departments, tech companies, and MSPs preferred by venture capitalists.

Can small to medium-sized PSMs survive?

Here at ReachOut, here are some facts that highlight what the future holds for PSMs:

  1. Demand for managed services has never been greater
  2. More and more PSM are entering the profession every day
  3. Baby boomers want to get out, but at the best valuation
  4. Geography is no longer an obstacle to collaboration

The other is that while investors swim around small to medium sized MSPs like sharks in water, they are looking for a particular size. For example, when ReachOut Technology brings together an MSP under the family umbrella, we look for specifics such as:

  • At least three employees
  • 1 to 5 million dollars in annual sales
  • 50% of contracts must be monthly recurring revenue

With PE companies seeking MSPs with a minimum of $ 15 million in annual recurring revenue and double-digit margins, this drastically reduces the opportunities.

Is the “Super MSP” inevitable?

MSP consolidation is underway and is a big part of the future of the IT space. This question has been answered. It remains to answer:

  1. Who will remain standing?
  2. How will customer trends impact mergers?
  3. Will the “Super MSP” come out both bigger and better?

“Big” can be better and bring benefits such as access to more resources, a wider range of skills and experiences – and access to capital, for example.

However, “small can be beautiful” and when applied to MSPs it can mean greater agility, a closer connection with customers and the ability to serve niche markets profitably.

At ReachOut, we are focused on blending the two scenarios with the goal of acquiring 75 MSPs and bringing them together under the family umbrella with exceptional training and support so clients only see the positive of mergers. The main thing is to satisfy our customers.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to learning the new skills you need. Many are developed in-house, but we cannot ignore the new services expected by our customers. Under the aegis of ReachOut, we are passionate about improving our skills and our progress in an ever-changing landscape.

Calculate the value of your MSPs here and plan to live the life of your dreams.

The art of cooking transcends the boundaries of class, nationality and profession. How a pleasure filled “add one session ”with two food bloggers, one Nobel Prize winner and the other illustrator, does it work?

Saptarshi and Insiya, the couple behind the popular “Bong Eats” food chain, spent a day in their kitchen with Nobel Laureate Abhijit Banerjee and French illustrator Cheyenne Olivier. What followed was a conversation about “food, the environment and sustainability in an increasingly polarized world”. Looked:

Economist Abhijit Banerjee won the Nobel Prize with his wife Esther Duflo and Micheal Kremer. A kitchen enthusiast and cook, Banerjee recently wrote a book titled ‘Cooking to save your life‘, featuring some of her best favorite recipes. The book was illustrated by Olivier.

Saptarshi and Insiya are household names for probashi Bangalis around the world, yearning to taste at home. They research and share detailed recipes of traditional Bengali dishes such as Chitol Maach’er Muittha Where Shukto, with easy-to-follow instructions and notes.

Such channels not only give them a return on their investment, but also allow them to go even further to test and try various sources of traffic such as cashback and coupons, loyalty programs, social media which can play a role. major role during the sales event.

Be prepared with the basics

The Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday sales will follow one another. To seize the opportunity, you need to optimize your website traffic by regularly updating content that is relevant to the audience. During sales, advertising space costs more and this is especially important for affiliates, so make sure you have enough budget for Black Friday. Do not forget if you have mobile traffic, check that the mobile version of the advertiser’s site loads quickly and correctly so that in the end, all your efforts are not in vain. Overall, it is important to control the date of the sales as some advertisers prefer to open the sales a day or two before the main sale.

Promote the offer category according to your audience niche

Before major sales begin, take a closer look at your target audience, their choices, and recent buying behavior. You can make Black Friday sales campaigns a win-win situation for you and your customers, but if they’re not right for your customers, they won’t do anything for you. Usually, advertisers share their own creations that immediately create associations with discounts and sales festivals. Using such media can help you easily communicate the message and ensure that the customer makes the buying decision after receiving the sales information from your channel. Millennials have also been observed to be the biggest spenders of Black Friday deals. Thus, it might be more efficient to contact them with their most convenient communication tool – Telegram, which is the most commonly used channel for their online purchases.

Use relevant tools

In the online space, there are many tools available that can help you monetize your website and effectively attract users. You may already be familiar with some of the tools or are considering doing so. Using at least the following two tools will make your life much easier: they are multifunctional and quite useful – Extension for Google Chrome and Telegram Bot.

After adding the Admitad extension to your Chrome browser, the publisher can see the main details of the affiliate program in the browser window of the advertiser’s web page. In addition, any single deep link can now be created literally with one click. The tools tend to be highly recommended and helpful for bloggers.

Admitad’s Telegram Bot is the tool that helps tremendously in working with affiliate programs from any device that has this messenger installed. The Bot is useful because any telegrammer can create a short link for their users and at the same time control their income.

These simple practices will help you outperform your performance from last year, we expect this selling period to be much better than in 2020. More and more users are buying online, and the discount period will not will only stimulate their activity. Not to mention that Cyber ​​Monday comes after Black Friday, so some users may skip the Friday craze and decide to shop on Monday. So remember to be more proactive and let your designs stay a little longer.

If you’ve ever found yourself captivated by the endless product options at Shopee Mall, you’re not alone.

With over 30,000 brands in many categories, Shopee Mall has grown into one of the region’s premier online shopping centers for everything from home and life items to premium labels.

Since its launch five years ago, the online platform has been a hit with buyers, no doubt thanks to its three guarantees: 100% authentic products, free returns and free delivery.

Last year, the platform saw three times as many orders on Shopee Mall during its year-end shopping campaign and nearly three times the growth in traffic. Growing demand for digital luxury shopping has also led to the launch of Shopee Premium, which is now home to high-end fashion and beauty brands like Furla, MCM and Sulwhasoo.

Shopee puts the needs of users at the heart of everything they do, said Ian Ho, regional general manager of Shopee.

Mr. Ian Ho, Regional General Manager of Shopee, explained that Shopee Mall is propelling a new future for brands and e-commerce in the region. By leveraging improved marketing and data tools, the platform can better serve existing customers and capture growth with new ones.

He said: “Shopee continues to stay one step ahead by putting users needs at the heart of everything we do. Our survey tells us that 75% of shoppers plan to spend more during year-end shopping. However, only 45% of shoppers know which brands to buy during these seasonal shopping times. To help brands seize these opportunities, Shopee works closely with brands to reach, engage and influence shoppers on their online shopping journey to convert them into lifelong customers.

TRANSFORMING COMMERCIAL DIGITAL FOR BRANDS

In addition, Shopee Mall allows a social and entertaining experience. Shoppers can discover and interact with brands through basic entertainment features like in-app games and Shopee Live, where they can learn about the latest trends and products.

“We understand that our customers are always looking for valuable offers and want to earn more rewards by purchasing, eespecially during our end-of-year shopping mega campaigns,“Mr. Ho share.

To meet customer preferences, Shopee Mall brand memberships have been developed to allow shoppers to earn rewards and accumulate vouchers to maximize their savings when shopping at official brands stores. With these brand memberships, brands can go beyond discounts to build loyalty and deepen customer relationships.

Shopee has also invested in the development of advanced digital tools to create more immersive shopping experiences. which are exclusive to Shopee Mall. For example, his BeautyCam is an augmented reality feature which allows buyers to virtually “try” cosmetic products to choose the product that best suits their skin tone. This helped to increase the number of product views resulting in higher sales conversion for beauty brands. such as L’Oreal Paris and Maybelline.

-
BeautyCam is Shopee’s augmented reality trial feature, developed in partnership with ModiFace.

Brands can take advantage of Shopee’s marketing solutions that help drive traffic to the app through its affiliate network of key opinion leaders, media, bloggers and cashback sites. This helps brands achieve a measurable ROI by growing their online presence.

It has paid off, with many popular consumer brands reaching many growth milestones. For example, HP, which has had an official store on Shopee Mall since 2017, saw a 270% year-over-year increase in orders during this year’s 9.9 Super Shopping. Day.

Mr. Ng Tian Chong, general manager for Greater Asia at HP, said that HP sees Shopee Mall as a growing part of its omnichannel strategy.

-
In addition to its popular laptops, HP sells office essentials such as printers, toners and inks on its Shopee page.

“Being on Shopee Mall has allowed HP to increase customer engagement and increase sales. We use Shopee’s engagement tools such as Shopee Live to reward shoppers and bring a new level of consumer-seller interaction through rewarding content and initiatives such as raffle and co-broadcast with customers. key opinion leaders and brand ambassadors, ”he explained.

REACH THE NEW GENERATION OF DIGITAL LUXURY SHOPPER

In October of last year, Shopee launched Shopee Premium – an exclusive space featuring a selection of high-end fashion, beauty and lifestyle products from luxury brands.

Shopee Premium, accessible directly from the main Shopee home page, provides a space for brands to share stories and personalize content, producing an immersive experience that enables a deeper connection with their customers.

Your Digital Supply Chain – How Can You Mitigate Your Third Party Risk? https://ascensionriskmanagement.com/your-digital-supply-chain-how-can-you-mitigate-your-third-party-risk/ Mon, 22 Nov 2021 21:55:12 +0000 https://ascensionriskmanagement.com/your-digital-supply-chain-how-can-you-mitigate-your-third-party-risk/ Third-party risk comes in many forms – sometimes its cyber risk, sometimes it is operational.

Third-party risk comes in many forms – sometimes its cyber risk, sometimes it is operational. Just think of the risk that abounds as we recover from disruptions to traditional supply chains. The images of container ships immobilized offshore, unable to dock and unload their cargo to an economy eager to consume it, are a reminder of this risk. The third party risk of your suppliers and channel partners intensifies the risk to the first parties (your employees and users) and the second parties (your customers).

Now think about your digital supply chain and the website that has become the heart of your business. You can control your first-party risk with the governance and defenses you put in place against attacks. You manage second-party risk by encrypting the sensitive data that your customers entrust to you. But how do you mitigate third party risk in your digital supply chain? Have you ever thought about it?

In the traditional supply chain, you are as secure as the subcontractors, service providers, resellers and other partners you work with. The same is true in the digital supply chain. You’ve probably had a lot of conversations about third-party risk over the past year or so, but if you’re like your peers, you may have overlooked an area that many of the world’s largest companies haven’t touched on yet. The client-side supply chain requires the risk management of third-party JavaScript servers and information systems that you may never have heard of before. If it’s not risky, what is it?

Third Party Risk in Your Digital Supply Chain – Worse Than Idle Container Ships

Whether you operate an online storefront; are part of the global hotel and ticketing market which is poised to experience massive growth after the pandemic; or you operate a financial institution or healthcare practice that has undergone a major move to the web over the past two years, your website is an integral part of the way you do business. Just as you are vulnerable to disruptions to traditional supply chains that move goods, you are also vulnerable to attacks on the digital supply chain that moves sensitive data. These attacks occur outside of what traditional web security protects and can go on for months undetected.

Your digital supply chain is just as crucial to your website, just as container ships are just as crucial to the traditional supply chain.

The code your website uses to capture and process your customer data depends on JavaScript. Features like web forms and shopping carts invoke JavaScript from sources all over the internet, but what do you really know about those sources?

Form hijacking and digital skimming are two types of attacks introduced by third-party JavaScript on your website. When your customers enter their personal information and credit card numbers, you capture the data, but so does the malicious actor who introduced the exploit to your site through your partners.

Naturally, you focus on data governance and the chain of custody when you share data with third-party vendors in your traditional supply chain. What about third party risk in your digital supply chain? Shouldn’t you be focusing on the risk of JavaScript running on your site that can send customer information to bad actors?

These unused container ships can cost you backrounds, but web application client-side attacks on your site will cost you in damage to customer credibility, reputation, goodwill, and potentially massive fines for things like GDPR policy violations.

Mitigating the risk of third parties lurking on your website is easier than you might think

Source Defense provides client-side protection of web applications through JavaScript sandboxing. It offers a simple and easy-to-implement way to prevent client-side attacks that originate in the digital supply chain your site depends on. With our tags in the headers of your web pages, Source Defense protects you against attacks on proprietary and third-party JavaScript scripts running on your customer-facing sites.

Recent research from Gartner sees client-side attacks becoming a common issue in the near future, with client-side protection of web applications quickly becoming a primary defense.

Most of the infosec measures you implement consume your time and your budget. Or they shield you from one problem and cause another, like adding management fees to your already overworked web team. Implementing Source Defense is a small effort for an easy win in a neglected area that mitigates third-party risk to your digital supply chain. Some of the world’s largest websites run Source Defense, which protects hundreds of millions of pageviews each month by stopping attacks and preventing billions of compliance policy violations. Source Defense goes beyond detection to prevention, without imposing additional monitoring tasks on you.

Rowhammer is an attack technique involving accessing – i.e. “hammering” – rows of bits in memory, millions of times per second, in order to toggle bits in neighboring rows. . This is a side channel attack, and the result can be all kinds of chaos.

Well, there is a new improvement:

All previous Rowhammer attacks have hammered rows with uniform patterns, such as single-sided, double-sided, or n-sided. In all three cases, these “attacker” lines – that is, those that cause bit hopping in nearby “victim” lines – are consulted the same number of times.

Research published Monday presented a new technique from Rowhammer. It uses non-uniform patterns that access two or more rows of attackers with different frequencies. The result: All 40 randomly selected DIMMs from a test pool underwent bitflips, compared to 13 of 42 chips tested in previous work by the same researchers.

[…]

Non-uniform patterns work against refreshing the target row. Short for TRR, mitigation works differently from provider to provider, but typically tracks the number of times a line is accessed and reloads neighboring victim lines when there are signs of abuse. Overriding this defense puts additional pressure on chipmakers to mitigate a class of attacks that many people believed the newer types of memory chips to be resistant to.
