Nearly 14.5 per cent of Indian companies could not detect any cyber attacks last year as finance and Information and communications technology (ICT) companies detected most attacks globally, a new report said on Tuesday.

According to cyber security provider F-Secure, there was a significant increase in attack traffic in the latter half of 2018.


“While attacks are increasing, it seems many companies are struggling with incident detection. Nearly 22 per cent of companies did not detect a single attack in 2018 globally,” said the report.

“Today’s threats are completely different from 10 or even 5 years ago. Preventative measures and strategies won’t stop everything any more, so I’ve no doubt that many of the companies surveyed don’t have a full picture of what’s going on with their security,” said Leszek Tasiemski, Vice President of Cyber Security Product (Research & Development), at F-Secure.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
