... la securite informatique des pouvoirs publics est inquietante. Par Nathalie Dreyfus, Conseil en Propriete Industrielle.

«« La sécurité informatique des parlementaires est proche de zéro », alerte Jérôme Bascher, sénateur LR de l'Oise dans son rapport d'information au Sénat n° 82 (2019-2020), le 22 octobre 2019. Il s'agit de distinguer les fonctions institutionnelles des pratiques informatiques des parlementaires eux-mêmes. Si les premières sont relativement bien protégées, puisqu'elles bénéficient d'aides comme celle de l'Anssi (agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d'information), les secondes sont la source d'une grande insécurité informatique. Les facteurs d'insécurité informatique liés au personnel L’objectif premier serait de mieux équiper les parlementaires et de les sensibiliser d’avantage aux risques informatiques.» [...] « Un dispositif à renforcer. L’objectif premier serait de mieux équiper les parlementaires et de les sensibiliser d’avantage aux risques informatiques. Pour le sénateur, il faudrait également renforcer les moyens de l’Anssi, qui est actuellement la seule entité à s’occuper de tous les organes du pouvoir. Les pouvoirs publics sont donc au cœur des enjeux stratégiques et décisionnels des démocraties occidentales, conséquence de quoi ils sont la cible privilégiée des attaques informatiques. Cela est encore plus vrai en période d’échéances électorales, comme l’a démontré l’élection présidentielle américaine de 2016. Il est temps de renforcer le dispositif de protection informatique des parlementaires. »...

11 more encouraging developments in the coronavirus crisis

«While the total number of infected continues to climb, early signs show that the rate of growth in some countries is slowing down. Meanwhile, innovators around the world are working at a breakneck pace to find solutions, from rapid diagnostics to battery-powered ventilators, and there have been incredible advancements in the fight against the coronavirus. Here are the latest positive developments: .» [...] «China lifts lockdown in Hubei In a few days, China will end the mass quarantine in Hubei province where the coronavirus pandemic started in late December. Transportation is resuming and select people are now able to leave the province for work. Rate of growth is slowing in some countries While the number of infected continues to climb, signs show that the rate of growth and the number of deaths is starting to slow in countries like Italy and Spain. In the U.K., the medical director of the NHS is suggesting a possible plateau. And in Canada, B.C. health officials suggest that the province’s curve could soon flatten out. Ventilator production is ramping up Ford, in collaboration with GE Healthcare, plans to produce 50,000 ventilators within 100 days by repurposing a plant in Michigan to produce the medical devices. Thornhill Medical, a Toronto-based health device manufacturer, is working with auto parts manufacturer Linamar to scale up production of their compact portable ventilators. The federal government has ordered 500 of the devices, which the company says will be ready early this month. Dyson announced that it has designed a new ventilator in just 10 days. The company plans to send 10,000 of the medical devices to the U.K. to fight the pandemic in the coming weeks. MIT released a cheap open source ventilator design in response to the worldwide shortage of the costly devices. According to MIT, the ventilator, known as E-Vent (Emergency Ventilator), can be produced for just $100. Rapid 30-minute COVID-19 test in the works Ottawa-based biotech, Spartan Bioscience is delivering 100 portable testing devices and one million test kits to the federal government in the next 12 months. Ontario has signed a similar agreement and Alberta Health Services has also announced that it is working with Spartan to do rapid testing in remote and rural communities. Researchers race toward a vaccine Around the world, more than 40 teams are working on a vaccine.Two vaccines are in clinical trials — one from CanSino and the Beijing Institute of Biotechnology, another from the pharmaceutical firm Moderna. An additional 42 candidate vaccines are in the clinical evaluation phase. The US government and Johnson & Johnson announced a $1 billion investment toward a potential vaccine, developed partly by a laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. The investment is said to provide enough capacity to produce more than 1 billion doses. The first batches will be available in early 2021. US stocks rose more than 3 percent following J&J’s announcement. Research teams across Canada are also working on vaccine candidates Western University is developing a COVID-19 vaccine — based on previous work done against the MERS virus — and a vaccine bank with hundreds to thousands of potential vaccines that could be used in a future outbreak. And a University of Alberta cancer researcher is working on a vaccine that could be delivered directly into patients’ cells, driving a protective immune response. U of A is also investigating possible coronavirus vaccine candidates with researchers developing methods for mass production of vaccines. Teams at the University of Manitoba, Laval University, and the University of Saskatchewan are also advancing possible vaccines. Testing new protections for front-line healthcare workers Researchers in Toronto’s University Health Network are studying a drug licensed to ward off malaria, treat lupus and rheumatoid arthritis to see if it can protect healthcare workers from COVID-19 in one of the first studies of its kind. The results are due this summer. Robots are reducing the transmission Light-blasting robots are disinfecting hospital rooms, hotels, planes and other public spaces. And in China robots helped contain the spread of the virus by reducing close interaction. Greece’s politicians are donating their salaries A number of Greek politicians have agreed to donate half their salaries for the next two months to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 after Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made the plea. Companies are pivoting to produce protective equipment Bauer has switched gears from hockey equipment to producing medical shields for those on the frontlines of the pandemic. More than 100,000 units have been ordered in Canada and the company is working to increase production in the U.S to meet shortages. Other companies helping with shortages include Under Armour, Toyota, Tesla, and The Home Depot. Startups are also helping to thwart the spread Startups are also shifting their focus to respond to the pandemic by relieving shortages in medical equipment, sanitizer and other desperately needed supplies. »...

Handicap : des enfants toujours sans classe pour les accueillir

«361 500 élèves en situation de handicap auraient du trouver une place dans l'établissement scolaire de leur choix selon les engagements du gouvernement avant l'été. Une circulaire annonçait de nouveaux dispositifs, notamment pour garantir l'accès à des professionnels qui accompagnent les enfants dans les classes. Deux mois après la rentrée, entre 8 000 et 11 000 enfants seraient sans solution. Marie-Aude Torres Maguedano, directrice exécutive de l'UNAPEI, fait le point sur les difficultés rencontrées par les familles.» [...] «Un bilan mitigé Marie-Aude Torres Maguedano, UNAPEI : " Le bilan deux mois après la rentrée est assez mitigé pour les enfants en situation de handicap. Il y a eu une ambition forte annoncée avec un certain nombre de dispositifs. Ce qu’on regrette et ce que l’on paie aujourd’hui c’est le manque d’anticipation puisque les mesures ont été lancées en juin. Et aujourd’hui le constat c’est que beaucoup de choses ont commencé à se mettre en place seulement ces dernières semaines et les choses commencent tout juste à être effectives. Donc c’est un peu mitigé. C’est ce qu’on retrouve sur la plateforme marentree.org qui permet de recueillir des témoignages de familles. Et on constate que beaucoup de familles restent sans solutions." Trois types de situations difficiles Marie-Aude Torres Maguedano, UNAPEI : " Il y a trois types de situations signalées par les familles. Certaines manquent d’AESH (Accompagnant d’Elève en Situation de Handicap), soit complètement soit avec un accompagnement seulement partiel, c’est-à-dire de seulement 2 ou 3 heures par semaine. D’autres sont en liste d’attente pour un Institut Médico-Educatif. Une question importante quand on regarde la réalité des famille, c’est celle du temps péri-scolaire. C’est-à-dire que vous pouvez avoir quelques heures à l’école mais pas de cantine, pas de centre aéré… donc votre vie elle est quand même très très compliquée en tant que parent d’enfant handicapé ! Et la réalité de la scolarisation pour l’enfant elle est quasi nulle." »...

Fighting ...˜fake news' online: How soldiers in Latvia got fooled by bots - EURACTIV.com

«When NATO's Centre for Strategic Communication in Riga discovered how easy it was to dupe its soldiers online, it has started looking for ways of countering false information, which comes, in large part, from Russia. EURACTIV's media partner der Tagesspiegel reports. The Latvian forest, not far from the Russian border. Thousands of soldiers from different NATO member states are training there to ensure continued military presence in Eastern Europe. But during manoeuvres that spanned several days, some soldiers who were winding down with their mobile phones stumbled across a well-done website claiming to be designed by and for soldiers. On there, the men chatted about the army, the weather and life in general. A few of them also ordered T-shirts on the site, for which they agreed to give their home address for delivery.» [...] «On Tinder, a popular dating app, some even communicated with a woman, sending pictures of themselves in uniform. One evening, two soldiers even arranged to meet the virtual woman. They both left their post for her, a move which proved to be a mistake. The website and the Tinder profile turned out to be a trap – a test carried out by a team of NATO experts on behalf of the Latvian army in the summer of 2018 to identify weaknesses in its own ranks. Soldiers were prompted to send their addresses, spread photos of a manoeuvre and even leave their posts, all with little effort. For NATO cyber experts, the experiment meant the same could happen anywhere. Who could rule out the possibility that soldiers might not even betray their positions or be blackmailed because of the information they spread online? The website for soldiers and the Tinder profile was tested by a group of men and women in a low-rise building in Riga, in NATO’s Centre for Strategic Communication, which is supported by Germany. Janis Sarts, who previously worked for the Latvian defence ministry, is now leading a group of 50 people in the NATO centre, which analyses disinformation campaigns, also called ‘Fake News’. According to Sarts, it is essential to develop strategies to win virtual battles that are often not recognised. With the test, the NATO cyber experts wanted to show what is possible with smartphones alone: “We want to shake things up,” he said. Virtual battle for ‘sovereignty of interpretation’ In years gone by, anyone who wanted to use propaganda and ‘muddy the waters’ within the enemy’s ranks had to print flyers, deceive journalists, or send their agents. Today, it only takes a few minutes to create a target group-specific profile in a popular online forum. People can frequently be misled online, usually for monetary reasons such as credit card fraud. Those days, what appears increasingly significant, however, is the virtual struggle for so-called ‘sovereignty of interpretation’, a notion which can be boiled down to one question: Whose narrative is true? In Latvia’s neighbouring country Lithuania, a rumour started spreading in 2017 via social media and chain e-mails that German soldiers who were part of NATO had raped a 17-year-old girl. Many suspect Russian sources were behind the rumour. Although Lithuania’s government made it clear that there was no such incident, the rumour persisted. “Deception and lies are spreading faster than ever before,” Sarts warned. According to him, “it’s about sensitising the population and governments to take a closer look”. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is aware of the risks. The German military »...

Tchap, la messagerie securisee du gouvernement victime d'une faille de securite

«Un spécialiste en cybersécurité est parvenu à accéder à l'application Tchap sans y être autorisé. Le tout quelques heures à peine après son lancement. Il n'aura fallu que quelques heures pour que Tchap, la nouvelle application de messagerie sécurisée du gouvernement, montre sa première limite. Lancée ce 17 avril, Tchap est censé remplacer Telegram pour héberger les conversations sécurisées des membres du gouvernement et de leurs équipes. Sur le papier, une adresse mail de type @gouv.fr ou @elysee.fr est indispensable pour s'inscrire sur la plateforme. Sauf qu'un tour de passe-passe permettait à n'importe qui de profiter du service.»...

Les armes du gouvernement pour « reciviliser Internet »

«Le secrétaire d'Etat au numérique Mounir Mahjoubi a fait part sur France info de la nécessité de "reciviliser internet". Un rapport parlementaire a été remis au Premier ministre ce 20 septembre pour y parvenir. Sous pseudo ou à découvert, les discussions sur les réseaux sociaux virent bien souvent à la foire d'empoigne. Pour éviter les dérives haineuses, racistes et antisémites en ligne, Mounir Mahjoubi estime qu'il est grand temps de "reciviliser internet". Interviewé sur France Info ce 21 septembre, il a mis en parallèle la tournure de certaines discussions devenues selon lui banales en ligne avec une situation de la vie courante.»...
