"You go to the australian and you get up and it feels bad and feels bad because he was utilitarian which is horrible because nobody thought on the end customer now day feel just take mark that this is something regulatory that they need to do. And then you start to do some research and you see that. We worked with some of the best designers world. Redesigning and focusing on poor dots are a lot smarter and create new bosnia on this stipulate service new canes pill boxes which assoc shameful can they be which slightly more whimsical kind of stuffing a so. That's what we did. So if i'll come back to the point before what did they learn the maniacal customer focus in actually thinking of what the customer wants is a dissenting everything as opposed to. Let's start with will need these and stuff. No let's talk and talk and talk to customers and put any physical goods as much as i hate it then. It would never do physical goods in my life but there is so much joy in seeing someone actually using poured in you can actually follow up photo a person on his day to day with dean and see hundreds of different touch points that you never thought important that you can incorporate into the product to make a porta smarter better. You know something. The drains you joy is opposed to shame. You mentioned the. You'll never do hardware again or anything physical again. Talk about speed in business. The importance of speed. What you've learned about how you deploy it. So how do the has limitations on speed because if we want to come up with a quarter of that we want to launch it to more patrick and seven tomorrow so we need to design. Maybe that can be fast. We need to raise the engineer. It okay not so fast and then comes post this which is the most magical thing and hardwood Tooling so you need to basically find a block of metal the laser in scattered. It takes six to eight weeks in older to plug this block into a machine. The basically manufacturer on scape so no matter. What you in the middle of the sports. it's gonna take you to free. Months need to believe And then what about cheating. Y'all gonna if everything because he was going to kill all of your margins so now we need to ship shipping from china now within the world where they can't even find contain those. Let's say you find it contains that's gonna take six to eight weeks and cut stem and shipping and so on into more morning. It's like it's going to take forever and steichen. It takes a long time. The interesting thing is that fintech in insurance specifically also takes a long time. There is no. Mvp there is no. I'm going to start selling insurance to patrick. You need a department that you need to five eight and you need to approve it with department of insurance ended insurance takes time and by the way those fifty departments of insurance in the uso. The fact that i'm live in california doesn't mean i'm i can be live in oregon zone. Which are like around the same vicinity. Even that takes away any awfully the first four duct. If i ever leave insurance. I kind of need to have a quarter center because maybe you have a question and i need to awfully claims because maybe you bought the insurance the following day. You've been advocating. So i need to take care of you. So there is no mvp which changed how investments should look at anything on specifically the insurance in many fintech as well pens if it's loan payments and stuff like that it just takes a while and you'll managing in fintech. It's people's money it's not a whimsically tiktok it works. It doesn't work it's live. it's not like i'm not saying it's it has its own merit and it's unplaced but picked is not working to mole. They did a problem. Find those going to be. People are going to lose money because their livelihood is on that but it's not going to actively hurt a lot of people. But if i charge you and it's your money and you're going to something's gonna happen. God forbid you have a thought fire in your home and you to ensure properly so now. I can't really make you hold for that. That's a way more important problem soon. I fade out. You need to make sure that it's working hands white. It's not fast on the dockside. What's fast is that. Eat rations afterwards. On how you bring the market value focus on the customer value today do ab testing. I believe that sense of urgency is one of the core strength of a stout i of an ongoing fight to maintain it. It's a lot easier when you have thirty people now with the five hundred people. It's a struggle in a fight. We used to jump on everything that was going and fix whatever there is now southern does process and those this and we should really make sure that it's located as we have on the prioritization. This is part of the fight of a growth. Seal wants to push the company in maintain what i believe that the company to the fact that we have hundreds of thousands of customers and we need to maintain a system and we need to add horses and some standardization. So does this ongoing fight. That's going on. I believe that time to market speed iteration and things of that. So what would negate us from being incumbent and you bringing more people that are more seasoned bush to the other side in. That's the inherent fighter. I have frank now in the company. How do you personally act to increase maintain inject urgency into the business even at the stage. Where you as the leader doing actively to try to keep that up you lead by example.

The next <Speech_Male> gen a antivirus <Speech_Male> or <Speech_Male> Or <Speech_Male> fdr <Speech_Male> that your network <Speech_Male> is also protected. <Speech_Male> So we're looking <Speech_Male> at security <Speech_Male> layer. So you <Speech_Male> want to protect your <Speech_Male> endpoint. One to protect <Speech_Male> the network. <Speech_Male> Also <Speech_Male> you wanna make sure <Speech_Male> that you have good to apologize <Speech_Male> for our network <Speech_Male> architecture. <Speech_Male> Things are segregated. <Speech_Male> Well enough <Speech_Male> did you have good auditing. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> There's that <Silence> i think <Speech_Male> early <Speech_Male> detection <Speech_Male> in. These cases <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> an absolute must. <Speech_Male> Because as <Speech_Male> we've seen <Speech_Male> again and <SpeakerChange> again and again <Speech_Male> when <Speech_Male> a ransomware is deployed <Speech_Male> or <Speech_Male> mass deployed <Speech_Male> on an environment. <Speech_Male> It's not <Speech_Male> like all of a sudden <Speech_Male> usually <Speech_Male> takes <Speech_Male> days or sometimes <Speech_Male> weeks <Speech_Male> of operation <Speech_Male> that you know from <Speech_Male> the initial compromise <Speech_Male> until they actually <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> managed <Speech_Male> to deploy <Speech_Male> ransomware. So <Speech_Male> if you are able to detect <Speech_Male> those early stages <Speech_Male> <Silence> You <Speech_Male> can <Speech_Male> hopefully nip <Speech_Male> in the bud <Speech_Male> preventing <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> such attacks <Speech_Male> from occurring <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I'm also a <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> great advocate <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> of threat hunting. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> you wanna be able. <Speech_Male> I think each company <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> should do aside <Speech_Male> from you know looking <Speech_Male> after the <Speech_Male> posture. <Speech_Male> They need to <Speech_Male> be aware of. What's <Speech_Male> out there. What threats <Speech_Male> are out there. <Speech_Male> Different mauer <Speech_Male> ransomware <Speech_Male> strains different <Speech_Male> groups study their <Speech_Male> modus operandi <Speech_Male> their <Speech_Male> t. and create <Speech_Male> <hes> <Speech_Male> their own hunting <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Basically continuously <Speech_Male> hunting <Speech_Male> proactively <Speech_Male> for threats. <Speech_Male> Sometimes <Speech_Male> when by the <Speech_Male> time you get an alert <Speech_Male> from <Speech_Male> a given security <Speech_Male> product <Speech_Male> could be <Speech_Male> too late <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Male> i really encourage <Speech_Male> companies to <Speech_Male> be more proactive <Speech_Male> rather than <Speech_Male> respond <Speech_Male> are reactive <Speech_Male> by responding <Speech_Male> to alerts.

So <Speech_Male> i don't think <Speech_Male> any <Speech_Male> of the bathroom mileage. <Speech_Male> No <Speech_Male> law enforcement <Speech_Male> agency <Speech_Male> confirmed <Speech_Male> that or at least <Speech_Male> took responsibility <Speech_Male> or claimed responsibility <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> for <Silence> this <Speech_Music_Male> in <Speech_Male> a way <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> that they did. <Speech_Male> It seems like <Speech_Male> they <Speech_Male> closed <SpeakerChange> shop <Speech_Male> for <Speech_Male> a while but <Speech_Male> overall <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> if you think about it <Speech_Male> like it <Speech_Male> has been estimated <Speech_Male> that they made <Speech_Male> the dark side <Speech_Male> made a <Speech_Male> at least <Speech_Male> ninety <Speech_Male> million dollars <Speech_Male> in revenue so far <Speech_Male> today <Speech_Male> they began <Speech_Male> their operation <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Male> unless they're <Speech_Male> actually <Speech_Male> physically caught <Speech_Male> by law enforcement <Silence> agencies <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Day <Speech_Male> can probably <Speech_Male> enjoy <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Early retirement <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> you know with ninety <Speech_Male> million dollars can do <Speech_Male> quite a lot <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> maybe <Speech_Male> one day if they're still hungry <Speech_Male> for <Speech_Male> the greedy and <Speech_Male> and they're <Speech_Male> hungry for making <Speech_Male> more money they can <Speech_Male> regroup rebrand <Speech_Male> and and <Speech_Male> and make a comeback. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> if you think <Speech_Male> about it.

I'll <Speech_Male> just say that <Speech_Male> In terms of like <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Aftermath <Speech_Male> of the attack. <Speech_Male> I think this <Speech_Male> is also something that is <Speech_Male> important <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> keep in mind. So <Speech_Male> according to <Speech_Male> one of the members <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> rebel which is another <Speech_Male> prominent ransomware <Speech_Male> group <Speech_Male> so shortly after the <Speech_Male> incident <Speech_Male> Baked claimed that <Speech_Male> The survey <Speech_Male> like posted <Speech_Male> something on behalf <Speech_Male> of dark side <Speech_Male> saying <Speech_Male> that dark side <Speech_Male> lost access to their <Speech_Male> servers. And as <Speech_Male> i mentioned the <Speech_Male> their bitcoin wallet <Speech_Male> was seized <Speech_Male> on <Speech_Male> their funds or transferred <Speech_Male> to another location. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Now we don't know whether <Speech_Music_Male> it's true or not <Speech_Music_Male> but the <SpeakerChange> group's <Speech_Male> website has been <Speech_Male> down since <Speech_Male> they <Speech_Male> also say that <Speech_Male> the group encouraged. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> They said that <Speech_Male> they're gonna sees. There <Speech_Male> are ransomware <Speech_Male> as a service operation. <Speech_Male> They encouraged <Speech_Male> other groups <Speech_Male> to switch to <Speech_Male> a tighter. A <Speech_Male> close knit operation. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Meaning that you know <Speech_Male> working <Speech_Male> less <Speech_Male> affiliates <Speech_Male> making it less <Speech_Male> accessible to <Speech_Male> whoever <Speech_Male> So i <Speech_Male> think there is <Speech_Male> one effect. <Speech_Male> They also mentioned <Speech_Male> that. The dockside <Speech_Male> mentioned they <Speech_Male> will release <Speech_Male> decrypt. Dr <SpeakerChange> for <Speech_Male> all of their victims <Speech_Male> which <Speech_Male> also means <Speech_Male> that day kind of <Speech_Male> tried to repent <Speech_Male> in a way <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> i think one <Speech_Male> of the <SpeakerChange> most <Silence> interesting <Speech_Male> side effects are ripple <Speech_Male> effect <Speech_Male> is actually seen in <Speech_Male> the underground <Speech_Male> cybercrime community. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So we saw <Speech_Male> groups like rebel <Speech_Male> or and avalon. <Speech_Male> Avalon <Speech_Male> is by By <Speech_Male> the way ways the group that <Speech_Male> tab took <Speech_Male> down the irish healthcare <Speech_Male> system completely <Speech_Male> paralysing <Speech_Male> their their network <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and healthcare <Speech_Male> is in my <Speech_Male> opinion critical <Speech_Male> infrastructure. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> Those rebel <Speech_Male> and avenue on <Speech_Male> That they <Speech_Male> will now avoid <Speech_Male> hitting critical infrastructure <Speech_Male> healthcare <Speech_Male> charities <Speech_Male> basically they kind of adopted. <Speech_Male> They're <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> like dark side <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> would <Speech_Male> model. <Speech_Male> In addition <Speech_Male> they said <Speech_Male> that you know in addition <Speech_Male> to like revising <Speech_Male> code of conduct <Speech_Male> they also <Speech_Male> the admins <Speech_Male> of those groups <Speech_Male> said that they <Speech_Male> <hes> will create <Speech_Male> a verification <Speech_Male> or approval <Speech_Male> process or vetting <Speech_Male> for their affiliates <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So they <Speech_Male> let's hit a target. <Speech_Male> They <Speech_Male> like the cortina <Speech_Male> has to <Speech_Male> authorize. <Speech_Male>

"It's not really the case. I don't know i'm at the. They tried to claim that you know when one of their posts at Or they suggested a very Gently that it's probably one of their affiliates who broke their code of conduct than it was. It was almost by mistake. But you know. I don't know if we should believe them or not. It's a i don't know my guest is good as yours. I guess fair enough so in the end Colonial did pay the ransom or at least. That's what the reports say I know that the rule is that you're not supposed to pay ransomware dealers but in their position. Would you have really done anything different south. Well it's hard to put yourself in other people's shoes right or it's very hard to judge a company that situation. I guess there's no. I think the truth is our at least my opinion is that there's no absolute right or wrong here. I think each company has to run. Its own risk. Assessment and carefully calculated the pros and cons of their would gain or lose from Keeping it hush hush or and paying the ransom or Standing up to the attack also paying the ransom is not always that simple because it might expose the company to some legal actions. I in some countries cooperating. With the let's whether it's a terror entity or or criminal entity could be considered a crime so it's not always that straightforward but then again on the other hand if they don't pay and data is leaked than there are also exposed to legal actions or even or regulatory four nights if you think about. Gdp are for example so if let's say a customer's data was leaked. There's p. i Information there they could be exposed to legal and regulatory actions. So it's really. It's a real pickle. What do we know about what happened. After they paid their ransom did dark side group fulfil their end of the deal..

"In cybercrime. And i have a ransomware operations of they have an affiliate program Which is a a major force multiplier. So if i for instance or anyone else wanted to engage with them you would contact them through. Different means andro ground community and then they'll probably vacuum on you pay them Agreed a sum of money to get access to their infrastructure. Yeah it's it's yeah. It's pretty much like that now. They made themselves in name for being quite aggressive and they implement what we call the double extortion scheme. Meaning that as i mentioned that they normally do encrypted victims date up of the also excellent large amounts of data and a basically threatened the victims to publish it or sell it to the highest bidder so the us Like with the information that they're stealing from the dirt victims they use it as leverage to put on more pressure on the victims. Basically twisting the arms into pain. It's quite effective against what we call more mature organization that even even if they have like backups or disaster disaster recovery plans and they can restore their own data. Most companies would not want to risk having sensitive data being published or sold out there on the dark web. So it's basically it's basically every company's worst nightmare to have dr data out there whether it's contracts customer information financial reports could be intellectual property patents and so on so if this data is there and being published It could have a lot of it can inflict a lot of damage on the company so a lot of people are a lot of companies even if they can restore their own data They're still have. They're still find himself in the situation that they still have to pay the ransomware. The ransom v suggests that this data would not be leaked to the public another thing that is interesting about this company. The group the dark side group that They seem to mainly target english speaking countries that we've seen some other. European countries also affected some places in asia but We see that they really avoid targeting or attacking countries that were What we call the the former soviet bloc nations so you can actually see it in the our code. The ransom were coated south day. Look for language. Settings than keyboard of of of russian speaking countries like ukraine pakistan whatever russia of course and they will simply not I mean th. They won't encrypt the endpoint. If they discovered that the russian language is installed. They're probably not too I guess targeted by the By with russian law enforcement agencies. I mean they probably afraid of russian retaliation if they attacked a former soviet bloc nations. I guess one other cork of this group you could say is that They have a certain code of ethics. That you don't always find among hacker groups like. I heard that they will not go after hospitals charitable organizations. That kind of thing Am i allowed to like them. Just a little bit because they kind of have this peter pan thing going on. Yeah well you know. They also posted the invoices on their blog showing that they actually contributed some of their money to charities Does that absolve them of crimes. I'm not sure. In my opinion there robinhood on model of trying to appear as hackers with morals or ethics is basically a cover up The try to appeal maybe less dangerous but as this incident taught us..

"It's critical infrastructure. I think you know it dawned on any people. I guess in the us and also outside of the critical infrastructure in the us is simply not as resilient as people might have thought if you think about. This incident was carried by a group of cyber criminals. That claim that they didn't mean to do it was kind of a bit of a oopsy daisy quote unquote. So if you think about that if it was like a mistake they didn't even mean to to do it If you believe that you know what what they're saying thinking about what would happen. If a foreign country for instance you know like i intelligence ages your military wanted to carry out an attack and bring down a critical infrastructure. So i think a lot of people realized the danger i guess the lies with the and how important it is to To protect critical infrastructures is that we're still using a old legacy machines running operating systems and so they're week to new threats is that all these machines are new and connected and so as easy to access them over the internet. What exactly is it. It could mean all of the above. Actually i think when it comes to critical infrastructure. It's i think sometimes it can be harder to secure because a lot of time he gets you know black boxes assets and not a lot of people know how to deal with it but generally speaking when we talk about critical infrastructure you talk about thousands and thousands of machines that you have to secure some of them are publicly like internet facing and some of them are like within the internal network that is not supposed to be exposed but obviously our connections sometimes if the networks are not segregated while enough that could pose pose a problem. But yeah. I mean we know that even with Enterprises or even small to medium businesses securing. The parameter is not an easy task if you have thousands and thousands of end points in all them needs to be secure. It takes one endpoint. That was not properly patched or somehow forgotten and need you know. Only one only This data once 'cause once they get a foothold they can They propagate okay. So what do we know about the people behind this attack. Dark side are a relatively new. Ransomware group They made their first appearance around august. Twenty twenty They operate harass model. Which is a ransomware as service where they offer a subscription based model which in which they give access to their infrastructure also the the ransomware itself To people who want to guess engage..

"It more stealth because The us windows own software so it can go under the radar. So this is something that we see so wednesday established Foothold in downloaded a different payloads. They would Try to their privileges to get To be able to. Let's say dump different credentials They'll probably try to get high Access or dumped credentials of political high privilege accounts as just the domain administrator or other privileged accounts and then they'll start With what we call a internal reconnaissance basically they'll try to map out the network understand the topology architecture trying to identify the the crown jewels so whereas usually where are you have the Active directory domain controller or other important vers- so once they map it out. They'll start to try to move laterally using different tools whether it's our rtp or or cobo strike begin. As i mentioned before and then like they will move from one machine to another until they are able to. Compromise major assets such as a domain controller. And before they actually deployed the ransomware We see the dale Because they're using the double extortion scheme. Which i'll get to it in a few minutes. They will try to steal a lot of data and exfiltrated using different tools. Sometimes we're talking about gigs. Even terabytes of data and basically exfiltrated to their remote servers once day collected enough information. That will be used later from you. As leverage than they will they will deploy the ransomware usually by compromising the domain controller delegates. Some sort of a. Let's group policy and dan plastic the network the environment with ransomware. So that so the ransomware is actually the last phase of the attack on now when we talk about timelines of the attack it can vary. Some groups are very aggressive in could be done within a few hours but usually it takes around like nine to. Let's say eleven days it used to be longer like in the past. We saw the threat actors. Ransomware groups where On the network for about four to five weeks till they Actually deployed ransomware. But we see that With the more aggressive groups it can take from a few days on also even a couple of hours to do. It really depends on on the network and their security posture and also the level of aggressiveness. I guess let's talk about the fallout of this attack in particular You know as someone who lives on the east coast of the united states I know some people who were rushing to gas stations. Because they heard of this story. That's a good question. So in terms of the fallout there have been hitter impacts for example so when the company shut down their systems promises obviously would supply chain causing a sharp I think four percent or even more rise in fuel prices and that created a ripple effect affected the entire energy industry also related industries that depend on gas and then for instance now in order. Mitigated the for instance. The department of transportation issued a temporary waiver that enable well products to be shipped in tankers. All the way up to new york. But this would. this probably didn't come near to match the pipeline's capacity so but but they tried to mitigate the wouldn't be like a lot of shortage i guess in addition we saw the end. That's quite almost unprecedented. I think we saw that. The biden administration issued an executive order detailing measures to improve nationwide cybersecurity measures. So i think this attack was in in in a sense the last straw after a series of cyberattacks either by different nations or cybercriminals but it means that the us government actually recognizes. Its cyber posture. The cyber posture is actually rather weak and lacking measure to secure..

Georgia election: All you need to know about key Senate runoff races

"Critical Georgia run offs, which will determine control of the Senate. The latest FIVETHIRTYEIGHT polling averages show the race is nearly deadlocked. Republican incumbent David Perdue trails Democratic challenger John Assaf. By about a percentage point in the regular election, while Senator Kelly La Flor, who was appointed to fill a vacancy trails her Democratic challenger, the Reverend Raphael Warren, up by almost two points in the special election. Our correspondent Rachel Scott, is in Atlanta with the very latest. Good morning, Rachel. Martha Good Morning, and Georgia already seeing record voter turnout for a special election. More than three million have already cast their ballot here who had just 48 hours ago. One of the Republicans in the race, Senator David Perdue, is now on the sidelines. He isn't self quarantine after coming into close contact with a campaign staffer who tested positive for covert 19. And the stakes could just not be higher. Republicans are calling this their last line of defense Democrats say what happens here in Georgia will set the course of Joe Biden's presidency. So to pull this off, Democrats would have to win both of their races that would bring the split in the Senate to 50 50 and then Vice President elect Kamila Harris would serve As the tie breaking vote. But if one of those Democratic candidates lose just one of their races, Republicans will be hanging on to majority in the Senate. And at this point, it's all about turning out the base to vote. So that's why tomorrow you will see President Trump and President elect Joe Biden campaigning here, he don't know. Biden was the first Democrat to win the state of Georgia and nearly 30 years. Runoff elections in this state have largely favored Republicans. But then on the flip side, you have some Republicans who are concerned that the president's own words that the election is rigged. That these runoff are invalid will then cost them majority in the Senate mark back. And Rachel Scott. Thanks very much for more. Let's bring in the former Democratic leader in the Georgia House of Representatives and the founder of Fair Fight, Stacey Abrams. Good morning to you. We've seen those polls that give Democrats a slight edge. But is there anything you're seeing on the ground that gives you concern? No concern? Just a great deal of urgency. We did very well in vote by mail. We did very well in early vote, but we know Election Day is going to be the likely high turnout day for Republicans, So we need Democrats who haven't cast their ballots to turn out. If they have any questions to go toe I will vote dot com to find their polling places and two months ago even is Joe Biden was winning Georgia John Assaraf trailed Republican David Perdue by nearly 90,000 votes and in the special election. The Republican candidates combined for nearly 50,000 more votes than the Democrats. I know that roughly 75,000 new voters have been registered since early November. How certain are you that those are Democrats were very certain that most of those were Democrats. Given the composition based on race and age, and let's be clear. We know a number of the people who voted for Joe Biden. As Democrats sometimes just skip the rest of the ballot. They came out to vote for the president because of a number of low propensity voters who came out for Democrats. What we're so excited about is that we haven't stopped reaching those voters. Millions of contacts have been made. Thousands of new registrations have been held, and we know that at least 100,000 people who did not vote in the general election are now voting in this election, and they again are disproportionately young and disproportionately people of color and does the fact that Biden outperform the Senate races indicate that his win really was more about President Trump than it was representative of some kind of ideological shift to the Left in the state. Not at all. We know that for new voters, especially new voters of color, There's a tendency to only vote in races where they are certain of the outcome. They know Joe Biden. Joe Biden's been a part of American politics for 40 plus years and so for a number of new voters, they're going to vote on Lee when they're confident. That's why we spent this time over the last nine weeks, educating voters about Jon Ossoff's and Raphael Warnock. They've crisscrossed the state and we believe we've closed that distance and that the voters that are turning out now absolutely no them and are standing by their sides and voting for them and you

"So it's time for us to make sure that we are not blocking new revenue from coming in so the decision was to make very precise adjustments versus more drastic changes because in general things were functioning is there were supposed to be functioning and we also recognize really early on that is going to be volatile. It's gonna change in cycles of weeks. I'm being different ways in different verticals. So making product changes seem an erotic unnecessary move but even model trading was not really a smart. Move by the time you're in with the new model you might be chasing your tail. Basically because you're already in a different reality. Can you tell us about a specific adjustment or tweak. They made one main feedback loop in one change that we did end up making is related to the importance of commission. One thing that really highlighted was the need to automate everything. It was mainly apparent for Quite numerous amount of a merchants around call centres so called centers because of covid had this operation of problems running because people were having a hard time getting to nicole centers or doing new work from home in limited Conditions and the same time there was a surgeon customers a surge in shipping problems so combine that a lot of merchant experience the calling center as a bottleneck that really echoed one thing. That risky fired was basically seen from day one. That whole area of fraud needs to be automated and we the had products in our roadmap data. We're trying to automate like second luke. The second luke is the product that allows your call center is a merchant to request from risk. If i'd second look into an order because a cold just came from a customer. So the merchant worth asking. Can you help fear allowing the merchant to try to get the customer themselves to enter the details instead of giving them to a call center person and risky fide helps the automating the process. If we get more information we can reassess our decision and allow a customer to complete the purchase. Even though with danish information it was hard for us to approve..

Upped ability moving fast is super important. Because you want to make sure that you're always able to react and you're always able to improve in week cycles okay. You want to understand that. You're doing the right things so you need to have a quick feedback loop. It's definitely true when your early startup. you want to understand really really quick that you have markets if you're keeping on thin and designing product for a year and a half the time you're out you might be out of the game because you lost your opportunity so quick cycles enable you to make sure that you take advantage of opportunities in the end of the day. It's true when you were early startup. and it's also true when you're bigger although you want more structure when you're growing so we were super agile when we were young. But we're still very angel now. We make sure that are planning or on a quarterly basis. That age process is in the core of our product development.

"We're GONNA talk in this. You know short conversation that we're going to have about one particular topic which I found as I said very interesting. And that's the shift from ransomware to blackmail a very new development in in ransomware, so let's start from the basics. What's the basic difference between ransomware or a ransom and blackmail? So it's a very good question, so we'll start with some definitions <hes> a nuances in the English language before we dive into our world of <unk> ransomware. So a ransom is a sum of money that is paid to in order to release the captive which could be a person. It could be an encrypted file for that matter. Right whereas black male is. A criminal offence where there's a payment or benefit that is. Paid in return for the criminal, not to reveal compromising damaging information about the victim, so that's an interesting nuance to keep in mind now when it comes to our world of of ransomware. What we've been seeing that the ransomware operators, the several criminals are facing <hes> some problems, sometimes with the getting the money getting paid, not that could be because of a legal or ethical reservations or restrictions. Some organizations are prohibited from paying a ransom to cybercriminals cyberterrorists. The mental agencies I'm guessing. For instance, there's a lot also ethical issues <hes> some organizations believe that these they pay <hes> you know it doesn't stop the attackers from coming back and demanding more ransom, so it's no never ending of vicious cycle of. Payment plus you're never totally sure that. Even if you do pay the money, you'll get information back so. Excellently. and. Also in recent years since the <unk> surge of <hes> ransomware out, we see a lot of <unk> organization actually. Implementing good backups and disaster recovery plans, so a lot of the organizations can partially or even fully recover their data without pain. So ransomware operators needed to find a clever way into making the victims pay in a way to twist the victim's arm into pain, and here comes the black man part, so what they're. Is Not only their encrypting the data, but before the encrypted, or even after they xl trait, ridiculous amounts of sensitive data about the company about the <unk> financial. <hes> statements <hes>. <hes> employees customers data super sensitive information. That is under almost every regulation. A you know a company like that would be fine if if the if the information got out. Right and also, there's a reputational damage. There's a lot of collateral damage there, so what we've been seeing. Is that <hes> a lot of <hes> ransomware operators such as <unk> rebel group. Maize and other type of prominent to ransomware are doing this shift in day <hes>, they now have like blogs into dark net such as that happy blog of rival where they each day almost dare auctioning data of other victims basically <hes> starting price ranges US usually between like. Twenty thousand dollars to fifty thousand dollars, and it goes up and up and up and up so you mean they're auctioning data from companies which refuse to pay the blackmail, and now they're making money off of auctioning that same black male data. Yes this is so clever? <unk> variously clever but very clever. So if you didn't WANNA pay us at the beginning to recover your files. NO PROBLEM WE'RE GONNA auction it. We're going to offer it to the highest bidder so way. They're twisting. They're victims are into paying so a lot of the companies will do it covertly like there. There's also the question of whether you pay or or don't pay and a lot of companies. Even if they paid, they tried to make it very hush hush. And that way you know, it's very hard not to pay <unk>. You have all this data about your customers about your <hes> intellectual property about your financial statements, all of that if it's know out there up for grabs for for the highest bidder. You WanNa. Make sure that you pay. That ransom were black. Mufi, do we know? Oh, can we estimate what percentage of the companies choose to pay versus those who choose not to pay the blackmail? while. It's very difficult to estimate because as I mentioned before. Is probably not the proudest moment of a company when they have to. Pay a ransom some of them. Even if they're paying the rent some eventually <hes>, they wouldn't admit it do it. <unk> hush-hush manner because of searing legal <unk> event reputational damage so even if companies do pay. Very little will actually admit it. So we can't really really know what's going on out there. But we can now is that a lot of people are a lot of organizations do pay and just because if you track down, you know bitcoin wallets, and you see you know <hes> crypto currency currency transactions. You can see that you know. The wallets of the cybercriminals <unk> especially ransom where operators is is increasing. Their annual revenues exceed even billion dollars in some years.

"Of Ed team an inability to to have a career progression. And it's It's hard to attract people to home care and specifically when such a high demand for people in the medical profession like nurses and CNA's there's always going to be somebody that will offer them for you and slightly better pay and potentially better beret working environments Asaf. You're you're depressing me. Depressed premium if you knew you know how many times we tried to stay very close to our and to the nurses and caregivers on the platform and you know it's it's sometimes you kind of scratch your head and say there's such a shortage of nurses and caregivers yet at any given point in time. The nurses and caregivers driving an uber or working in restaurants. Because they're a shift was cancelled last minute. They don't have a way to get the replacement and they need to pay the bills. Okay or they need the cash you know. They get paid in two weeks but they need cash now so they call out tonight. Homecare shifting going work at a restaurant because they can get the cash to pay for the gas to go to the home shifted tomorrow and that happens every day in in large numbers in large volumes. And so this is part of the part of the of the problem or the issues that we are working to resolve insult without platform. So is that true of private duty or home care services. Is that also true for home? Healthcare nurses those that are you know Medicare reimbursed episodic visits. Is that the same kind of Employment Situation. So it depends. Some some companies Medicare liked to hire their nurses full-time again. Because of the shortage of nurses at to hire the nurses full time and tried to optimize their utilization through a Bethel visit van scheduling and Planning and others pay for pay by visit so the companies and there are some large companies out there that have a pay per visit 'em policies. The ones paper visit. Yeah it's the same thing so it seems to me. There's a disconnect that there is a high demand for services it always like in my mind. There's always a shortage of these kinds of workers and fact you pointed to that to begin with a two million in the workforce. So what's not competing for me? Is that you know. He's thinking of simple economics supply and demand while if there is that demand and you don't have the supply than you would raise the wages right or do something else to be able to make that kind of employment attractive so this is my opinion right so I'm GonNa say now it's kind of a suffer. Bainian. It's not a based on any facts and my my assumption is that the the CMS Basically sets the rates in the market. So they took the home care home. Health market is about two hundred billion dollars a year. In about eighty billion out of eighties Medicaid Medicare so really there are setting most of the prices in the market and they see that the caregivers and the nurses are on average getting paid about sixty percent of the rate that they're paying the agency. Okay so he's pay the agency and whatever forty dollars an hour. The nurses ended up getting about twenty five twenty six dollars an hour and so they are really pushing for the agencies to become more efficient and more data driven and are in more capable of managing riskin shore in connecting the money these invested into or spent on home healthcare into a results.

"Following a series of bomb blasts on Easter Sunday that killed more than two hundred and fifty people and injured many more concerns have remained for the safety of refugees, and dishonesty, because living in Sri Lanka u n refugee agency UNHCR has been working since day, one with low who partners and the government in the aftermath of the twenty first of April attacks on upscale hotels and Christian churches.

Spoke to lengthy Lorenzo Huarte RJ protection associate at UNHCR about the work the agencies been doing to help the vulnerable. My work is directly read for nationalists who are seeking asylum in Sri Lanka. We have about close to nine hundred or thousand between that amount of refugees and asylum seekers, internally, these faiths, we've ensure mce because of the ethnic speed instead based off of the incident on the twenty eighth. Because they felt that they were perceived as extremist so many retaliation there were so many people who were forced out of staff, homes, and currently taking shelter in the mosque Andy belly station injury Lanka, so that is the down situation rice now Guinea, Dulles about the challenges the wonderful communities faced in the immediate aftermath of the attacks and the challenge was because these people foreign nationals, and they are.

Lanka, we have urban refugee population, and usually they rent out houses, then they don't live in camps that they have like a crack way Nomer life where they can rent out houses, and they're after the incident, many of them to stay at home, because they were scared that they will be approached and will be targeted by different groups, because feel were five futures did expedient some sort of retaliation from the local community, so many of them were distaste, because they were scattered in our so that people who actually expedience on stock of how difficult it was for the UN agencies for you to reach out to the affected communities and help. Them. I think they initiate to make it's like extremely difficult. Because as as you in the have the author had had the final film any like security measures we had to take into into consideration say the initial two weeks. It was really if we could not actually go to see and to meet them, but we do with local partner that I refused. She advocates, and we also have implement intimidating fasteners, who were underground from day one. And we were also in touch with them communicating people so Collins with flooding used to about three hundred four hundred calls a day from different fees, talking to us and saying what's going on and how God and everything. So, I think the initiative will be buried this occurred because personally. Like I two Assaf the us have entity or neighbors who faked it. But then honesty, when they need comes to work. We had this group of people that he had thinker. So there was really no time to to feel for our own. That's how I said is you have to like letting direction to work for your people because they had no but yet, so they were reaching out because he went. Yeah. Is there overnight station that should, and they believe that, that they'd be should stand for them, and they should work for them? You mentioned that you were working with implementing partners in reaching out to the vulnerable communities. Would you could you tell us more about the role of UNHCR in working with the government to ensure interfaith, interreligious harmony, and tolerance and in promoting reconciliation because they are, and we actually work with the Pacific group of people land is just a. Silence from the day, one really shout the government and we told them that we need their support because then deeper but he's saying he didn't have a face because it's inhalant is not a camp fifty and this is like, no that the government they knew that he had a very urban refugee population, though. They said very like it was extremely positive there as fun movie were very encouraged because they were very forthcoming in providing assistance. You know, whatever the way that it was possible. So currently now they're working with us to find automative accommodation for this group of people who are taking chat that neom by police station to about hundred hundred fifty four like aching shelter in a police station. So at the moment, we are working the government to, you know to find alternate dealer. Commendation. For them, how long it's going to take for these communities to go back to their places independently surely hope that, you know, they'll be bad to go back very soon. Like we have heard like that few family who have returned to their, their houses their home, which is a positive dying, but to be honest, we don't know how long they have to stay, but they have not discouraged, people from going back to fees safe safety, go back, again, if an most of the time they told us is day in touch with their house on us and many of and had very positive experiences than than the house owners have tried to protect them and to make sure that, that, that they don't get physically targeted and all that today in touch with their house owners, and, you know, and if it is the positive as an opportunity for them to go back, and we are very happy about it, you know, and being age that as.

"assaf" Discussed on 600 WREC

"Nice to have you with us Assaf, ter- noon, and we've got so much talk about bathe betta were arc his now comparing Soleil -very. To what illegal immigrants have to do when they come into this country. That's right. They're now saying he's now saying that the we treat people in this country like indentured servants. Not making this up. This is how desperate bets are kissed to literally survive in a campaign where he has lost a lot of momentum. He has lost so much momentum. Now that he's trying to figure out ways to say crazy things to get headlines. Now, I'm gonna play this audio for you in a second. But let me just set this up for you. So you understand exactly what's happening here. You have we're in the middle of a border crisis. Like, we've never seen. People are literally pouring into this country at a rate of more than one hundred thousand detainees that we had last month. Low many of these illegals are risking their own lives. Just to set foot in America. We know that many of them die trying to get to this country one hundred thousand retain last month alone. Those are the ones that we just attained that doesn't count the ones that actually got into this country that doesn't count the ones that we weren't able to catch or detain another one hundred thousand detained the overwhelmingly the majority of those are going to be released into this country. Anyway, because that's how we do it and will not show for the court date. So they're going to come in here. Now, these illegal immigrants many of them do research own lives to set foot in America. Yep. Better. Now, it's comparing the way that we as a country treat illegal immigrants. To one of the worst atrocities in world history. Take a listen to what bedtime Rourke had to say. It's truly blowing. Immigr- immigration millions living in the shadows. Working some of the toughest jobs. Let you to make a minimum wage some not even making that kept in modern day bondage their immigration status use as leverage to keep them down from fully participating in this country success and in our economy and economy that works too well for too few and not well enough for most Americans. So bets are compares the way we treat illegal immigrants to bondage. Does Beto honestly think that people would risk everything? To leave all their belongings behind to leave their life behind and then bring their children their families into bondage. Nearly four thousand people are stopped or apprehended trying to cross our border every single day illegally. Does he really want me to believe that all their friends in America who are stuck in this bondage that he's referring to? That are stuck in this bondage that they are referring to. You have nearly four thousand people African trying to cross the border every day. And he wants me to believe that all of these people have not talked to America who said don't come. You're going to be a slave. It's like being a slave if America's so bad if it is literally slavery. Why would these people becoming an I'm not exaggerating? I say the summer literally by the millions. It's a it's a question that has to be answered. It's a question that must be answered. America's borders are wide open. If it is bondage as he described it. Then these people could go home any point any time because they're actually not enslaved. Now trust me, America's not going to stop you at the border. If you're trying to leave this country illegally going across the border in the opposite direction. We're going to let you go. So all of these people that he sang are in bondage can walk out leave this nation, and no one is going to stop them. Now bet should know this. But in case, he's really stupid. I'll let me make it abundantly clear to wrote a rookie option to leave on your own free will has always been available. And the reason why these people are not slaves by definition is the option to leave was not available to actual slaves. That's why what made them slaves. They did not have the right to leave their bondage. I'm waiting for beds. Roar who by the way is also Catholic to come out and condemn his pope because this week, the pope's and a half million dollars to help illegal immigrants actually break into America. That's right. The pope now has donated a half million dollars to migrant caravans trying to enter the United States of America illegally. If these people are going to be enslaved when they got here. Don't you think better orcs job would be to call out the pope and save stop paying for people to get to America where they're going to be enslaved where they're going to be they're going to be in bondage to the rest of their lives. How how are you is a good Catholic not advocating for the pope to not send a half million dollars to help get people into this country literally illegally. Five three five nine seven three to five three five nine seven three to the eight hundred number one eight hundred four seven four nine seven three two one eight hundred four seven four nine seven three two. I wanna get your phone calls. Get your reaction to this. See what you think about it for for me? For me. This is maybe the most disgusting thing I've seen so far from candidate telling me that we must that we are evil to the point of enslaving people and that we should be ashamed. As a nation. We give these people amazing lives. We now know statistics seventy percent of legal immigrants or in some sort of government. A we give them healthcare. We give them schooling. We give them food stamps. We give their kids, basically amnesty. Everybody knows that. I want to go to your phone calls and see what you think about this. The number five three five nine seven three to five three five nine seven three two. If we can play better just one more time again at work says this country that we live in. We should all be ashamed of ourselves. We should all be ashamed because we treat illegal immigrants like we are slave owners. Take a listen immigration immigration. Millions living in the shadows. Working some of the toughest jobs to make a minimum wage. Some not even making that kept in modern day bondage, their immigration status Jews as leverage to keep them down from fully participating in this country success and in our economy and economy that works too well for two few and not well enough for most Americans. So I'm now supposed to feel sorry for legal immigrants who actually break into.

Thieves snap up rental scooters in SF

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Feves snap up rental scooters. Assaf shared electric scooters are disappearing from city streets in high numbers. As thieves target the portable vehicles in the first two weeks. We lost two hundred vehicles to the theft, which was just shocking said Michael Keating CEO and founder of San Francisco's scoot networks. People were grabbing them all the time. We realized that if we kept losing them at that rate. We wouldn't have any left in response scoot, scaled back its vehicle numbers an expedited its plans to include locks on its two wheelers. San Francisco's skip has also experienced that's but declined to specify how many however, it's vehicles have a wheel lock mechanism. So they cannot be ridden unless they're unlocked with an app scoots to healers can be ridden in manual kick mode without using the app albeit in an unsatisfying experience as they are not designed for that. Their electric Motors require an app unlocked to work both skip and skewed have alarms. Go off. Scooters are moved without being reserved in their apps city sanctioned e scooter rentals started October fifteenth under a pilot program in which scoot and skip each have permission to rent out up to six hundred twenty five scooters scoot started out offering about three hundred scooters but have that to about one hundred fifty a day in recent weeks? Something residents have complained about on social media. We're not trying to hide that Keating said the reason is the fact ramping up more scooters depends on the success of the lock scoot this week will add combination locks and cables to scooters as an interim measure users will get the combination from the app after a scooter is reserved in early December scoot will switch to its long-term solution Bilton electronic locks with thirty two inch cables the smartphone. Apple unlock the device at the end of it ride. The user must lock the scooter to street furniture such as bike rack or pole and snap a photo of it. Skip has been renting its full complement of six hundred twenty five scooters and said it has gotten positive writer feedback. Skip also plans to add built in locks to its fleet. And is now testing them out on about a dozen scooters. In addition to warning thieves, the locks should help keep more of the scooters out of the flow of pedestrian traffic and prevent people from knocking them over. Skip said it's working on new technology to detect win scooters are written on sidewalks, which is prohibited. We want people to learn that when they get to the sidewalk they should pull up the scooter and walk it to the furniture zone said Julie SU skipped chief marketing officer referring to the sidewalk edge. We're scooters are supposed to be parked in March. Three other scooter companies lime bird and spin burst onto the streets in San Francisco. The scooter deluge led to a temporary ban, and then creation of the pilot program. The San Francisco municipal transportation agency, which oversees scooters said the number of complaints is much lower now than in the spring. The agency's three one one line logged three hundred thirty six scooter related complaints from October fifteenth to November fourteenth or eleven point. To a day in the spring. It receives complaints at the rate of forty four point six day, scoot, scooters average, two or three rights day Keating said by contrast, I go chilly were scoot rolled out scooters around the same time sees six to ten rights day per scooter, that's because the vehicles there are concentrated in a central business district while in San Francisco, they're dispersed throughout neighborhoods. He said skipped climbed to say how many rentals at facilitates. But it's pleased with usage sue pan said writers, use them for first mile last mile connections to transit as well as for scenic rides such as along the embarcadero or in Golden Gate park. She said constant theft is clearly not sustainable Keating said he declined to say what scoot pays for its two-wheelers, but industry sources say e scooters are bought wholesale from China for around three hundred dollars scooter thefts and vandalism are issues in many of the hundreds of cities worldwide that have the two-wheelers bird, graveyard, an Instagram account with sixty thousand followers.
