Mass Awareness a Must to Combat Cyber Threats
Mass Awareness a Must to Combat Cyber Threats
Speakers, at a seminar on October 29 last, emphasized on mass awareness as well as joint steps from public private sector to combat the threats over internet.
The experts also said that many countries have announced same target of technology-based state in different tags following the ‘Digital Bangladesh’ theme.
“Only government can’t achiev the target of safe cyber space. Every citizen has to contribute from their own domain to secure the connectivity here,” speakers came to the common remark at a seminar organized by Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Dhaka chapter marking the Cyber Security Awareness Month-2016 at a Dhaka conference centre.

Microsoft loses about 40 million Internet Explorer users in one month
Despite continued updates and improvements to its Edge browser, Microsoft can’t seem to hold on to users as they transition from various versions of Internet Explorer. The latest figures suggest that in October alone, Microsoft shed some 40 million users, with the likes of Chrome and Firefox scooping them up.
Looking at the latest data from Net Market Share, Chrome is still the undisputed king of the hill, boasting the kind of percentages Microsoft used to enjoy — with a 55 percent market share at the end of October. It found an extra 0.58 percent from the likes of Internet Explorer, which dropped a surprising 2.5 percent — equivalent to about 40 million users, per Computer World.
That is quite a surprising turn, considering 2016 has not been Firefox’s best. Its user base has fluctuated frequently, bottoming out at 7.69 percent in August, but it quickly recovered.
Regardless, the largest shift came from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Though you might have expected a large number of those turncoats to adopt Microsoft Edge instead, they did not. While the new face of Microsoft’s web portal was been steadily growing since its introduction with Windows 10 in mid-2015, it has not seen any real spikes in user adoption. Following this most recent exodus from the old IE standards, Edge saw just a 0.1-percent increase in its user share.
Considering the ease Microsoft has in marketing its browsers to users compared to Chrome or Firefox, this is rather surprising. It has spent much of 2016 seeing its browser dominance overtaken easily by Chrome, which overtook the multiple different versions of Internet Explorer in April.
At the end of 2015, Microsoft’s total browser share was comparable to Chrome’s now and yet as we close out 2016, it has been reduced to barely a quarter.

Apple Slashes the Price of USB-C Dongles Over MacBook Pro Port Outcry
The new MacBook Pro has a few pretty awesome features, the headliner of which is the new Touch Bar. The TouchBar, however, isn’t the only change — another big change to the computer is the fact that it now only has USB-C/Thunderbolt ports. What this means is that most of your peripherals are going to need adapters to work properly.
That’s sparked some outrage among Apple customers. While most consider USB-C to be the future of the ubiquitous port, the fact is that Apple is not yet at a point when all our devices would work with the new standard. Thankfully, it seems like Apple has listened to its customers concerns, and given its USB-C dongles a major price cut.
It’s a little unfortunate that these price cuts aren’t permanent — but it’s nice that its happening at all.
As you can see, in one case the price cut is as much as 50 percent, which is a pretty good deal for those in the market for new dongles and adapters. Sure, you could probably find even cheaper adapters on Amazon, but the fact that you can now order a MacBook Pro and the adapters you’ll need in one package at a relatively low price is a big deal w
