Seaspan Ship Management Selects Kaleris Marine Fleet Performance and Connected Loading Computer for Their Fleet

ALPHARETTA, Ga., June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kaleris, a leading provider of cloud-based supply chain execution and visibility technology, today announced that Seaspan Ship Management, the world largest independent lessor and operator of containerships, has chosen Kaleris Marine Fleet Performance Bluetracker and Connected Loading Computer solution MACS3 Connected for their fleet of 123 vessels. Seaspan is also in the process of implementing Kaleris’ Lashing Monitor onboard of 27 newbuildings.

“Setting up the vessels of your sailing fleet for a greener future and compliant to emission regulations brings Marine Fleet Performance very much into the focus of ship owners and managers,” said Alfred Gomez, Director Marine Standards at Seaspan. “Being able to include data about the real cargo situation onboard into a standard marine fleet performance data set adds a completely new dimension to our understanding of vessel performance and emission control.”

The use of MACS3 Connected also helps to expand collaboration between internal departments of a ship manager or owner because everyone looks at the same set of data with their respective questions.

Kaleris Marine Fleet Performance tool is flexible and scalable, and offers customizable reporting features, which are key to Seaspan’s ability to efficiently manage their fleet. The analytics in Bluetracker One is innovative and closely connected to the authorities who monitor and review emission compliance. Flexible integrations to in-house tools and to third party vendors help to easily transition from an existing solution to Bluetracker without disruptions.

A key benefit for Seaspan is the safety and security of the cargo and crew. By implementing The Lashing Monitor, Seaspan will reduce the risk of container loss at sea, especially during heavy weather, and as a key advantage the data is available to both the manager and the operator of the vessel to provide for safe sailing.

“We look forward to providing Seaspan with cutting edge technology that will ensure their fleet is supported by the 30+ years of maritime expertise through our Navis brand and the mission and power behind Kaleris as a company investing to connect customers to powerful supply chain execution and visibility solutions,” says Martin Bardi, VP Global Sales CVS.

Both implementation teams are currently working on the deployment of the solution, which is expected to be live during the last quarter of this year.

ECB Forum on Central Banking 2023, Lippi (Luiss University) focused on “Inflation and misallocation in New Keynesian models”

Governors of central banks, leading academics, economics and finance experts, journalists from across Europe gathered in Sintra, Portugal, to participate in the eighth edition of the European Central Bank’s (ECB) annual forum. The event, titled “Macroeconomic stabilisation in a volatile inflation environment” prominently featured statements by ECB President Christine Lagarde on the persistence of inflation.

In her speech, Lagarde urged the European Central Bank to maintain high-interest rates in order to prevent prices from exceeding the established target due to labour market tensions and a significant increase in wages in the Eurozone. Her statements were reported by major European newspapers.

According to Lagarde, the ECB has made “significant progress” in combating high inflation but emphasized that victory cannot yet be declared. The Financial Times reported the key points expressed by Lagarde, who explained that “the initial phase of inflation, where companies passed on the increase in energy and commodity prices to consumers, is diminishing”. However, a second phase driven by rising labour costs has emerged, with predictions of a 14% wage increase in the Eurozone by 2025.

With unemployment reaching its historic low of 6.5% in April, workers are demanding higher wages to compensate for the loss of purchasing power. “This threatens to create a vicious cycle between wages and prices that the central bank must avoid”, as reported by the Associated Press. Lagarde emphasized that workers are trying to recover losses through sustained wage increases, which is pushing up other measures of underlying inflation.

Francesco Lippi, professor of economics and finance at Luiss University, also contributed to the debate, speaking on the panel entitled Assessing the costs of inflation. Inflation and misallocation in New Keynesian models. Professor Lippi provided an important perspective on the topic and the propagation of inflation. According to his analysis, when shocks of such magnitude occur, as seen in 2021 and 2022 due to rising energy prices, inflation spreads rapidly. This has significant political implications, as it means that a significant increase in gas prices, for example, as experienced by numerous European companies, will lead to an acceleration of inflation concentrated within a short period compared to forecasts. However, the analysis suggests that if inflation is higher than initial estimates, it will also slow down more than initially expected. The research was developed by Professor Lippi at Luiss university, which he described as a very stimulating academic environment.

The line that Lagarde insists on, however, is a firm stance: ‘Monetary policymakers,’ said the ECB number one, ‘must address this dynamic head-on, to ensure that it does not lead to a self-fulfilling spiral fuelled by a disengagement from inflation expectations’.

Lagarde made it clear that the bank will try to discourage ‘expectations of too rapid a policy reversal’ and will keep rates high for as long as necessary.

Acronis’ Mid-Year Cyberthreats Report Reveals 464% Increase in Email Attacks

New report unveils troubling trends: cybercriminals exploit AI, persistence in ransomware attacks, and significant surge of data stealers

Acronis Mid-Year Cyber Threat Report 2023

Email attacks up 464%

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today released the findings of its Mid-Year Cyberthreats Report, From Innovation to Risk: Managing the Implications of AI-driven Cyberattacks. The comprehensive study, based on data captured from more than one million global endpoints, provides insight into the evolving cybersecurity landscape and uncovers the growing utilization of generative artificial intelligence (AI) systems, such as ChatGPT, by cybercriminals to craft malicious content and execute sophisticated attacks.

The biannual threat report highlights ransomware as the dominant risk to small and medium-sized businesses. And while the number of new ransomware variants continues to decline, ransomware attacks’ severity remains significant. Equally concerning is the growing prominence of data stealers, who leverage stolen credentials to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information.

“The volume of threats in 2023 has surged relative to last year, a sign that criminals are scaling and enhancing how they compromise systems and execute attacks,” said Candid Wüest, Acronis VP of Research. “To address the dynamic threat landscape, organizations need agile, comprehensive, unified security solutions that provide the necessary visibility to understand attacks, simplify context, and provide efficient remediation of any threat, whether it may be malware, system vulnerability, and everything in between.”

According to the report’s findings, phishing is the primary method criminals leverage to unearth login credentials. In the first half of 2023 alone, the number of email-based phishing attacks has surged 464% when compared to 2022. Over the same frame, there has also been a 24% increase in attacks per organization. In the first half of 2023, Acronis-monitored endpoints observed a 15% increase in the number of files and URLs per scanned email. Cybercriminals have also tapped into the burgeoning large language model (LLM)-based AI market, using platforms to create, automate, scale, and improve new attacks through active learning.

The cyberattack landscape is evolving

Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated in their attacks, using AI and existing ransomware code to drill deeper into victims’ systems and extract sensitive information. AI-created malware is adept at avoiding detection in traditional antivirus models and public ransomware cases have exploded relative to last year. Acronis-monitored endpoints are picking up valuable data about how these cybercriminals operate and recognizes how some attacks have become more intelligent, sophisticated, and difficult to detect.

Drawing from extensive research and analysis, key findings from the report include:

  • Acronis blocked almost 50 million URLs at the endpoint in Q1 2023, a 15% increase over Q4 2022.
  • There were 809 publicly mentioned ransomware cases in Q1 2023, with a 62% spike in March over the monthly average of 270 cases.
  • In Q1 2023, 30.3% of all received emails were spam and 1.3% contained malware or phishing links.
  • Each malware sample lives an average of 2.1 days in the wild before it disappears. 73% of samples were only seen once.
  • Public AI models are proving an unwitting accomplice for criminals looking for source code vulnerabilities, creating attacks and developing fraud prevention-thwarting attacks like deep fakes.

Cybercriminal gangs phish to acquire credentials, extract data and dollars, of note:

  • Phishing remained the most popular form of stealing credentials, making up 73% of all attacks. Business email compromises (BECs) were second, at 15%.
  • The LockBit gang was responsible for major data breaches.
  • Clop breached a mental health provider’s system, affecting the personal and HIPAA-covered data of more than 783,000 individuals.
  • BlackCat stole more than 2TB of secret military data, which included personal information of employees and customers, from an Indian industrial manufacturer.
  • Vice Society compromised 1,200 servers and the personal information of 43,000 students, 4,000 academic staff and 1,500 administrative staff at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany.

Breaches demonstrate major security concerns

Traditional cybersecurity methods and lack of action let attackers in, the report shares:

  • There is a lack of strong security solutions in place that can detect zero-day vulnerability exploitations.
  • Organizations often fail to update vulnerable software in a timely manner, long after a fix becomes available.
  • Linux servers face inadequate protection against the cybercriminals who are increasingly going after them.
  • Not all organizations follow proper data backup protocol, including the 3-2-1 rule.

With these trends in mind, Acronis emphasizes the need for proactive cyber protection measures. A sound cybersecurity posture requires a multi-layered solution that combines anti-malware, EDR, DLP, email security, vulnerability assessment, patch management, RMM, and backup capabilities. Leveraging an advanced solution that combines AI, machine learning, and behavioral analysis can help mitigate the risks posed by ransomware and data stealers. Through ongoing research, development, and collaboration with industry partners, Acronis is committed to empowering individuals and businesses by providing innovative solutions which protect against emerging cyberthreats.

Depósito Central de Valores to Digitize Securities, Leveraging Nasdaq Technology

Depósito Central de Valores, Chile’s Central Securities Depository, Expands Capabilities to Support the Registration, Transfer and Settlement of Digitized Securities

NEW YORK and SANTIAGO, Chile, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) and Depósito Central de Valores (DCV) today announced an extension of their technology partnership, which will allow DCV to issue and settle digitized securities. Incorporating this service will differentiate DCV as a first mover in the tokenization of assets whilst providing its clients with one platform, based on a consolidated view and single access point across all asset classes.

The technology leverages digital asset capabilities developed by Nasdaq and is fully integrated with its Central Security Depository solution, DCV Evolución. The new service will reduce manual processes, settlement times, and time to market for future enhancements and offerings.

“Market infrastructures are increasingly looking for ways to embrace tokenization, driven by an accelerating global trend towards leveraging existing securities systems and payment rails to service emerging asset classes,” said Roland Chai, Executive Vice President and Head of Marketplace Technology at Nasdaq. “Nasdaq’s technology allows providers to continue serving traditional securities, whilst capturing the many opportunities across digitized assets. The expansion of our partnership with DCV puts them at the forefront of this secular shift.”

DCV will leverage smart contracts to store information related to the underlying security and its ownership, thereby enabling them to automate asset servicing procedures such as managing interest payments or time-consuming legal processes.

“With a solid focus on the client, at DCV we recognize the need to move towards a modern capital market, with access to world-class standards and technology that allows agility and simplicity in the processes without neglecting the security that our business and our clients need. This is the vision that has mobilized us to advance in the DCV Digital project hand in hand with Nasdaq,” said Rodrigo Roblero, CEO at DCV. “We are interested in being a relevant player in the world of tokenizing assets to deliver an applicable service that helps to improve the processes of issuing instruments.”

While DCV will initially launch digitized securities using a central private database, the technology is DLT-enabled to support the issuance, registry and settlement of tokenized assets on distributed ledgers as the broader ecosystem evolves. Nasdaq’s CSD technology is fully interoperable with other depositories and can be readily integrated into existing and future payment networks.

This announcement marks a significant expansion in Nasdaq’s partnership with DCV. Last year, the company replaced its legacy system with Nasdaq’s CSD platform which significantly enhanced the performance, speed, and scalability of its offering, increasing the processing speed of its operations over one hundred times faster. With these improvements, DCV has been able to enhance services across the Chilean financial ecosystem as well as more easily access international investors with standardized operations, messaging, and data infrastructure. For this reason, the company was awarded “Most Innovative Financial Infrastructure Company in Chile” last November.

Nasdaq’s Marketplace Technology business serves as one of the world’s largest market infrastructure technology providers, providing multi-asset solutions to more than 130 marketplaces, CCPs, CSDs and regulators in over 50 countries. It offers reliable and scalable technology across the trade lifecycle, helping organizations to drive efficiency, transparency, and liquidity with unparalleled resiliency.
