(“WISeKey” NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN), cybersecurity delivering AIoT Integrated Security Platforms, today announced that its cybersecurity offering (hardware and software platform) for connected cars addresses safety and security issues arising from system vulnerabilities. 

WISeKey entered the connected cars security segment in 2019 when Daimler AG started to use its technology to validate the authenticity of different vehicle components, protect onboard communication between vehicle components and provide over-the-air software updates.

Staying connected when the world falls apart: How carriers keep networks going

To Mike Muniz, an area manager for AT&T’s network disaster recovery team, witnessing the aftermath of Hurricane Michael was like entering a war zone.

On Oct. 10, 2018, two days after forming over the Caribbean Sea, Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle. The most powerful hurricane to hit the US since Andrew in 1992, the Category 5 Michael killed 45 people, left 700,000 residents across Florida, Georgia and Alabama without power and caused $25 billion in damage.

Muniz arrived in Mexico Beach, Florida, a couple days later to help restore the area’s cell service, which the storm had wiped out.

“I look back, I think it was worse than Puerto Rico [after Hurricane Maria in 2017],” Muniz says. “I remember seeing people just wandering around.”

Following disasters that topple cellphone towers or knock entire networks offline, wireless providers need to be on top of their game when repairing

Age of the smart car: Simplifying connected technology

If you haven’t heard the words ‘connected’ and ‘car’ used in the same sentence recently, good job on staying disconnected from the automotive news cycles! The hottest (marketing) buzz word at this point of time, it’s hard to believe that just a little over a year ago, few had even heard of it. With the launch of the Hyundai Venue, which earned the distinction of being India’s first connected car, the flood gates seem to have been opened. In the time since then, other manufacturers have joined the party – MG, Kia, Honda, Ford and Tata to name but a few of the notable entries. The common talking points have been the ability to “talk” to the car (in the form of voice assistance) and view vital information about it right from your smartphone, apart from being able

Technology keeps us connected, but all the time?

What does instant gratification mean when it comes to the workplace? According to peoplegoal.com, it is defined as “the experience of satisfaction upon receiving reward immediately after an action. People desire to experience gratitude, fulfillment, or pleasure ‘immediately’ or without delay.”

In many instances, having information in front of us via the Internet provides acceptable instant gratification. For instance, you are sitting in a bar or restaurant having a conversation or partaking in trivia and a question comes up that you can’t answer. What do you do? Why, you grab your phone and look it up, of course. Voila! There’s your answer. Or perhaps after a long day at work, you want to watch the show you missed. Boom – turn on your smart television, and you can watch it immediately.

But when did we, as a society, start having expectations that people work 24 hours a day, 7 days

Kullman is married to a special education teacher, and the couple has a 5-year-old starting kindergarten along with a younger child.

“Our house is embracing the chaos,” she said Tuesday. “… We are just so grateful that we are remote. The challenges we will face are nothing
