Oporto's Team cleans Matosinhos Beach

On Saturday (Sep 23rd) we had our Beach Cleaning activity in OPorto and we were able to collect a lot of trash that was left on Matosinhos Beach!

The weather was great, but we started early so we managed to do most of the work while the beach was not yet full.

Not only were we able to collect diverse items that did not belong to the beach, but also contributed to the awareness of those on the beach and hopefully to their adoption of correct environmental behaviours. We gathered several items, including plastic bottles, food boxes, plastic packages and bottle caps, but the day's winner was the famous cigarette. We keep working to raise awareness on the importance of keeping these areas clean and we hope this action had a greater impact on everyone who saw us cleaning the beach!

It was a delightful morning as we could share a nice moment with our colleagues while contributing to a cleaner planet!

Cybercriminals Breach HCA Healthcare Systems, Putting Patient Data up for Sale

Cybercriminals Breach Healthcare Systems

HCA Healthcare, one of the largest healthcare companies in the U.S., has suffered a significant data breach. Hackers stole patient data affecting around 27 million patients in nearly two dozen states, including facilities in Florida and Texas. The compromised dataset includes patients' personal information and certain visit records. The breach was discovered when the stolen data was sold on a data breach forum. While no critical clinical details appear to have been disclosed, patients' full names, cities, and details of their last provider visits were compromised. HCA claims that no medical diagnoses or other critical medical information were impacted. However, the hacker has asserted having "emails with health diagnoses that correspond to a client ID." The company says the breached data originated from an external storage location exclusively used for formatting email messages. Shares of HCA Healthcare remained relatively unaffected by the news.

Meta Platforms Advances AI with Image Joint Embedding Predictive Architecture

Meta Platforms Inc.'s artificial intelligence (AI) researchers are making progress on developing a new architecture for machines that can learn internal models of the world. The goal is to enable AI models to learn faster, plan complex tasks, and adapt to unfamiliar situations. Meta's AI team has introduced the Image Joint Embedding Predictive Architecture (I-JEPA), the first AI model based on this vision. I-JEPA learns by creating an internal model of the world, comparing abstract representations of images instead of pixels. It aims to replicate how humans passively observe and learn background knowledge about the world. I-JEPA predicts missing information by focusing on abstract prediction targets, unlike generative AI models that fill in missing information indiscriminately. I-JEPA has shown strong performance on computer vision benchmarks and is computationally efficient. Meta plans to open-source I-JEPA's training code and model checkpoints and expand its application to other domains. The research represents a significant step towards scaling self-supervised methods for learning a general model of the world.

AI Helps Sir Paul McCartney Realize Unfinished Beatles Song

Sir Paul McCartney revealed that artificial intelligence (AI) played a crucial role in creating what he calls "the final Beatles record." Using AI, McCartney extracted John Lennon's voice from an old demo, enabling him to complete the song. The technology, employed during the production of Peter Jackson's documentary "Get Back," separated Lennon's vocals from background noise and instruments. This breakthrough allowed McCartney to "duet" with Lennon during his recent tour and create new surround sound mixes. While McCartney finds AI's advancements exciting yet scary, he looks forward to its future applications. The release of the final Beatles record, featuring the completed song, is eagerly anticipated. McCartney's involvement extends beyond music, as he recently launched a photography exhibition titled "Eyes of The Storm" at the National Portrait Gallery, showcasing portraits taken during The Beatles' rise to fame. As technology continues to evolve, AI's impact on the music industry and creative process is becoming increasingly significant. The integration of AI algorithms into music production allows artists to explore new possibilities, preserve and reinterpret existing material, and shape the future of music in unimaginable ways.

US Cyber Insurance Premiums Surge 50% in 2022 Amid Rising Ransomware Attacks

The demand for cyber insurance in the US experienced a significant surge in 2022, with premiums increasing by 50%. This growth was primarily driven by the rise in ransomware attacks and the expanding realm of online commerce, which heightened the need for coverage. Insurers collected $7.2 billion in premiums in 2022, marking a three-fold increase over the past three years. The escalating threat of cyber risks remains a persistent concern, and the coverage provided to insured individuals and companies depends on insurers' risk appetite and the willingness of reinsurers to provide coverage. Ransomware attacks, which saw a substantial increase, contributed to the heightened demand for cyber insurance, as the shift to remote work during the pandemic made individuals more vulnerable to digital attacks. This trend also prompted organizations and individuals to adopt stronger cybersecurity measures. Notably, loss ratios for standalone and packaged policies decreased to 43% and 48%, respectively, indicating positive signs for the industry after experiencing higher incurred losses in 2020 and 2021. Surplus lines insurers, specialized in covering unique risks not covered by conventional policies, have gained popularity and now account for most cyber insurance premiums. Looking ahead, the growth in demand for cyber insurance is expected to continue due to the expanding cyber landscape, increased complexity from artificial intelligence, and the resurgence of ransomware attacks in 2023.

Google Launches Preview of Search Generative Experience (SGE) as Rollout Begins

Google is launching its AI/LLM-powered Search Generative Experience (SGE) to users who signed up for the Search Labs program. SGE aims to provide answers to longer, multi-step searches by generating AI-powered snapshots of information from multiple sources. These snapshots will appear beneath the search bar with a colour background to distinguish them from regular search results. Google's large language models, such as MUM and PaLM2, provide objective and neutral responses. SGE will not generate a snapshot if there is insufficient information or low confidence in the response. On the desktop web, relevant websites will be displayed on the right, while mobile will show them in a carousel format. A button in the top-right corner lets users expand and view the sources that informed the answer. SGE also features a Conversational mode for follow-up questions and offers buying-related suggestions with generated overviews. Ads will be displayed above the snapshots and labelled as "Sponsored." Additionally, Search Labs introduces two new experiments: Code Tips, which provides coding pointers, and Add to Sheets, which allows inserting search results directly into spreadsheets. Users can sign up for Search Labs and access SGE, Code Tips, and Add to Sheets individually. Priority access will be given to Google One Premium subscribers with 2+ TB storage.

Rodrigo Loureiro talks about Cyber-risks at IDC Security Roadshow

On April 20 Rodrigo Loureiro was at IDC Cyber Security Roadshow presenting Navigating the Shift to Continuous Cyber-Risk Assessments and Scoring using Objective Security Metrics. Increasing cyber threats make traditional annual and quarterly security assessments obsolete. This is leading to a shift towards continuous risk management and assessment. The SEC's forthcoming cyber-risk scoring standards for publicly traded companies further emphasize the importance of objective security metrics and results measurement, especially as CEOs become increasingly concerned about rising security expenditures without clear returns. Attendees will gain insight into organizations' efforts to ensure continuous visibility by establishing updated reporting routines. They will also provide objective measures to justify how to focus security expenditures where it matters the most. With a focus on collaboration between IT, cybersecurity, and compliance departments, this presentation is a must-see for anyone looking to keep up to date in the changing cybersecurity landscape and protect their organization's assets and data consistent with their corporate strategy and aligned with the CEO and board objectives.

The European cybersecurity landscape will continue to evolve rapidly in 2023. Pandemic disruption still lingers, but new disruptive forces are emerging. In addition to ensuring compliance with data protection, privacy, and digital sovereignty regulations, security teams need to protect critical business assets, build trust, and protect critical business assets.

The massive shift to the cloud, the adoption of IT and virtualization, and the development of large supply chain ecosystems are all powerful drivers of growth. They can also lead to less positive outcomes, increasing risk, complexity, and attack surfaces.

The most effective way to solve complex problems is to maintain a combination of data that can support decisions.

Gabriele Rachele at IDC Cloud Roadshow

InnoWave at IDC Cloud Roadshow

Cloud technology has been one of the most significant enablers of organizational growth and performance for the last decade. As part of the IDC cloud roadshow, we saw a series of key topics compiled by top industry experts.

Gabriele Rachello, our CTO, was a speaker at the IDC Cloud Roadshow. With almost 15 years of experience in the IT industry, Gabriele has been involved in some of the most challenging and interesting projects around the globe. For several years he worked as an IT consultant in the telco business. During this time, he came across InnoWave.

Today's environment requires getting the most value from the cloud. Cloud business principles are attractive, but not every organization can exploit them. Companies will continue to move towards a more digital economy as they embrace the cloud and all its transformations. Businesses are looking for ways to automate operations, provide rich customer experiences, and launch new products - cloud computing can assist. The cloud's potential, however, cannot be unlocked simply by using magic formulas. Migrating to the cloud can result in higher costs for some organizations. Consequently, IT decision-makers have questioned whether the modern economy is just pure marketing.

How to be safe on the internet

How to be safe on the Internet is the right question to ask. Using the Internet is part of our daily lives, which is why it is often used by malicious criminals as a way to trick users into risky behaviour that could compromise their devices and personal data.

This February 7, 2023 - Safer Internet Day - we promote safer Internet browsing with some tips on how to minimize the risks that currently exist:

Use of strong and unique passwords for different services.
Avoid using common words and phrases and consider using a password manager.

Watch out for phishing campaigns.
​​​​​​​Be wary of unsolicited emails that ask for personal information or follow suspicious links and attachments. Also, we must report phishing emails. In this way, the teams responsible for organisations' security can take appropriate preventive measures.

Browse secure websites only.

The entry of the technology company in the national group will allow the reinforcement of skills as well as explore new business opportunities. It will also promote internationalization since 66% of Cycloid's turnover is related to external business and was decisive for the purchase.

Furthermore, it allows InnoWave to grow and strengthen its position in the IT market. This year, the company expects revenues of 30.9 million euros, which represents a growth of 28% compared to 2021.

InnoWave has a mergers & acquisitions strategy to grow the business and the group, having acquired Wintrust in 2018, to strengthen the software testing area, and ViGIE Solutions in 2019, to solidify its position in the areas of IoT and Healthcare.

Tiago Gonçalves (in the photo), CEO of InnoWave, explains the acquisition: «in a time where the market presents companies with multiple and demanding challenges, InnoWave assumes itself as a buyer of companies with skills that reinforce our portfolio and that have a strong international footprint. This acquisition is another step in our growth strategy, which also materialized in competence centres in Portugal, such as Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Faro and Beja».

Making decisions out of Fear 

One month ago a client told me that he thought I was very brave.

He told me that I had a lot of courage, and until today I dismissed the comment because for me, being brave means overcoming all your fears or overcoming extraordinary challenges, like climb the highest mountain in the world, or my case, entering in an aquarium with a lot of snakes.

Never came to my mind that I was demonstrating bravery every day, but the reality is that we all do. When we started our internal campaign, talking about InnoWave's values, I realized that different perspectives may coexist for the same values ​​of courage, ambition and bravery. 

Make Decisions

The dictionary definition of courage is “the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain...without fear.” however if we look at a more entrepreneurial spectrum, we deal every day with several obstacles and a multitude of fears as a part of our daily lives and for the most part, we dismiss our ability to overcome these as not worthy of acknowledgement.  

For the past few years, I’ve been giving a training session at InnoWave focused on Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. One thing I’ve learned through my path, is that recognizing your courage and bravery, no matter how insignificant the situation may seem to you, is empowering, it fuels your self-confidence, personal and professional power and this is the reason why all InnoWave leaders should continue to recognize every act of courage from their employees. 

It’s true that when we become part of this " world of work" or in a new company or a new challenge, we always have the following fears: 

  • “Afraid of becoming stagnant and complacent.” 
  • “Afraid of not being in control.” 
  • “Afraid that I won't be able to get the job done.” 

And there is no harm in having these fears, but it is also true that we can be afraid of joint construction of the following habits: 

  • Remind yourself that fear isn’t always helpful 
  • Have confidence in yourself, believe that your ideas are good, express your ideas and defend your view 
  • Embrace failure as part of the pathway to success 
  • Calculate risk-taking, re-think risk and think big 
  • Take initiative, show initiative and save time for your company 
  • And most important of all ‘remember to breathe’ important activity in decision making 

In January I turned 10 years working at InnoWave. During my career path, I went through so many different functions, always challenging myself every day and I was afraid so many times but I always continued to do my best, I worked hard for 7 years to reach the Manager position. My main job role at the moment was due to a lot of courage aligned with ambition and bravery, for sure and obviously for all the recognition over time of my teams, peers and leaders. I love the following quote from one of Rocky Balboa's films “But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!”, so never give up on your desires and goals. 

Challenge yourself

Challenge yourself , challenge your team leader, don't be passive but active, find places where you can bring value and help to grow your organization and outside of work always try to put your stamp on everything you do because only then you will have a happy life and happiness feeds our soul.
