Singapore/Hong Kong, November 22, 2022 – The International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) has been awarded Outstanding Contribution to Regulatory Reforms in the 5th Regulation Asia Excellence Award 2022 in an in-person ceremony on November 22, 2022.

ISDA has been recognized for its leadership role in developing and pooling cost-effective solutions to support regulatory compliance, its work to promote the safe and efficient operation of global derivatives markets, and its engagement with regulators, standard setters and regulators at global and national levels. levels to help achieve consistent and appropriate regulation across jurisdictions.

During the year, a key area of ​​focus remained the LIBOR transition, building on ISDA’s work over the years to introduce robust fallback solutions for LIBOR-linked derivative contracts. With five remaining USD LIBOR settings due to cease at the end of June 2023, ISDA continued to promote market education, fallback protocol listings, and help countries, including in Southeast Asia, move forward their transition efforts.

This year also saw the start of the sixth and final phase of implementation of initial margin regulatory requirements, involving more entities than in any other phase. Many phase six companies have used ISDA’s Create platform to negotiate and manage IM documentation, along with its SIMM model, which is now considered the global standard model for calculating IM.

Another major ISDA initiative bearing fruit is its work on digital regulatory reporting, just in time for the implementation of the CFTC’s rewrite of rules for OTC derivatives reporting on December 5. 2022. Working with its members, the ISDA has converted the CFTC rules into human-readable and machine-readable rules. -executable open source code to ease the compliance burden faced by industry. The solution will inevitably be transposed to incoming requirements in the EU as well as major APAC jurisdictions.

During the year, ISDA also advanced its work to improve the Chinese derivatives market, through dialogue with national regulators on legislative proposals and regulatory developments and the publication of a legal opinion that recognizes close-out netting under Chinese law – an important development for the market. Other areas of focus for ISDA have been climate risk and sustainable finance, digital assets and cryptography, as well as Basel III implementation and capital benchmarking.

“ISDA has a long history of serving derivatives market participants. Yet it continues to tackle the most pressing and complex issues they face with new services, solutions, materials and advocacy,” said a judge from the Regulation Asia awards jury. “The work of ISDA has benefited all corners of the derivatives market, as we have seen in its work to advance LIBOR transition efforts globally and ensure that global regulatory requirements, including in the crypto space, are fit for purpose and not too burdensome for the industry. ”

In October, the ISDA announced that its members exceeded 1,000 companies for the first time. Its members cover 79 countries and include institutions from across the derivatives market – including banks, asset managers, insurance companies, governmental and supranational entities, corporations, market infrastructures, vendors and law firms.

How Microsoft Could Improve Copilot and Ease the Open Source Controversy https://amitysource.com/how-microsoft-could-improve-copilot-and-ease-the-open-source-controversy/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 18:10:00 +0000 https://amitysource.com/how-microsoft-could-improve-copilot-and-ease-the-open-source-controversy/ Check out the on-demand sessions from the Low-Code/No-Code Summit to learn how to successfully innovate and gain efficiencies by improving and scaling citizen developers. look now.

Check out the on-demand sessions from the Low-Code/No-Code Summit to learn how to successfully innovate and gain efficiencies by improving and scaling citizen developers. look now.


GitHub Copilot has been the subject of some controversy since Microsoft announced it in the summer of 2021. More recently, Microsoft was sued by programmer and attorney Matthew Butterick, who alleged that GitHub’s Copilot violates the terms open source licenses and violated the rights of programmers. Despite the lawsuit, I feel like Copilot is likely to stick around in some form or another, but it got me thinking: If developers are going to use an AI-assisted code generation tool, it would be more productive to think about how to improve than to fight for its right to exist.

Behind the Copilot controversy

Copilot is a predictive code generator that leverages OpenAI Codex to suggest code – and entire functions – as coders compose their own code. It’s a lot like the predictive text seen in Google Docs or Google search functions. When you start composing an original line of code, Copilot suggests code to complete the line or fragment based on a stored repository of similar code and functions. You can choose to accept the suggestion or replace it with your own, which could save time and effort.

The controversy stems from the fact that Copilot draws its suggestions from a large body of open source code that it has processed. The idea of ​​monetizing the work of open source software contributors without attribution has angered many members of the GitHub community. It even resulted in a call for the open source community to drop GitHub.

There are valid arguments for both sides of this controversy. The developers who freely shared their original ideas probably didn’t intend for them to end up being packaged and monetized. On the other hand, one could argue that what Microsoft has monetized is not the code but the AI ​​technology to apply that code in a proper context. Anyone with a free GitHub account can access the code, copy it, and use it in their own projects — without attribution. In this regard, Microsoft does not use the code any differently than it has been used from the start.

Taking Copilot to the next level

As someone who has used Copilot and seen how it saves time and increases productivity, I see an opportunity for Microsoft to improve Copilot and address some of the complaints from critics.

What would improve the next generation of Copilot is a better sense of context for its suggestions. To make usable recommendations, Copilot could base them on more than just a GitHub search. Suggestions might work in the specific context of the code being written. There must be some significant AI technology at work behind the suggestions. This is both the unique value of Copilot and the key to improving it.

Software programmers want to know where suggestions come from before they accept them and understand that the code is tailored to their specific needs. The last thing we want is to use suggested code that works well enough to work when compiled, but is inefficient, or worse, prone to failure or security risk.

By providing more context to its Copilot suggestions, Microsoft could give the coder the confidence to accept them. It would be great to see Microsoft offer insight into the origin of the suggested code. A trail back to the original source – including an attribution – would achieve this goal, and would also share some of the credit that is owed. Just knowing that there is a window to the original open source repository could bring some peace to the open source community and also help Copilot users make better coding decisions while they work. I was delighted to see Microsoft reach out to the community recently to figure out how to build trust in AI-assisted tools, and I can’t wait to see the results of that effort.

Like I said, it’s hard to imagine that GitHub Copilot will go away just because some of its community is upset with Microsoft’s repackaging of their work behind a paywall. But Microsoft would have everything to gain from extending a digital olive branch to the open-source community — while improving the efficiency of its product.

Information source

For this work, we used data from the Federal Office of Public Health (OFSP – opendata.swiss/en/dataset/covid-19-schweiz). We used the reported numbers of daily cases (shown in Fig. 1), hospitalizations, tests, test positivity and deaths in the 26 cantons. The cantons are administrative regions of Switzerland similar to a state in the United States.

Fig. 1

Daily case count for all cantons. We can see that there are delays between their incidence curves. Cantons are identified by their official two-letter codes (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:CH).

The datasets used here are listed in Table 1 where we outline the names, brief descriptions, and links to where they can be viewed on the EpigraphHub platform.4. For each of the datasets, a corresponding metadata table is also available (https://epigraphhub.org/tablemodelview/list/). Metadata tables have the same name as the tables they refer to, with the appended suffix “_meta”. Other COVID-19 datasets obtained from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health are also available for download and viewing in EpigraphHub. Data sets are stored and re-shared unchanged.

Table 1 List of datasets used for this article.

For a summary visualization of the datasets used here, see epigraphhub.org/superset/dashboard/p/yorXv7eBJAQ/.

View Hospitalization Rates

Given the succession of viral variants and the effects of vaccination since the beginning of 2021, a simple but effective way to visually follow the evolution of the risk of hospitalization over time is to look at the day-to-day relationship. day between the number of new hospitalizations and the number of new Covid-19 cases reported daily. This visualization can be achieved by a simple scatter plot and by applying temporal color mapping. Finally, we split the analysis into blocks of 3 months to show the evolution of the average severity of the cases (Fig. 2). We can look at these rates by canton, to see how they differ from the national rates (Fig. 3).

picture 3

Daily hospitalizations per case in Zurich, Geneva, Aargau and Bern. The blue circles are from Q4 of 2021, the greens from Q1 of 2022 and the cyans from Q2 of 2022.

Spatio-temporal analysis

From the time series of daily reported cases for each canton, we applied pairwise correlation analysis to unravel the spatial dynamics of the virus.

As the virus spreads across geographic regions (e.g. townships), delays in the incidence of reported cases in different regions can be estimated (Fig. 1). We used a cross-correlation between new case series reported daily to not only estimate this spatial trajectory over time, but also to analyze the magnitude of pairwise correlations between all townships. To get the offset τ between two series, we evaluated the lag that maximizes the intercorrelation coefficient between each pair of cantons.

The normalized cross-correlation function for two time series, Xyou and Yesyou is given by:

$${rho }_{XY}(tau )=frac{{mathbb{E}}left[left({X}_{t}-{mu }_{X}right)left({Y}_{t+tau }-{mu }_{Y}right)right]}{{sigma }_{X}{sigma }_{Y}}.$$

(1)

The sign of τ which maximizes the cross-correlation function is an approximation of the direction of predictability, i.e. if ρXY(τ > 0) this means that the canton X anticipates Yes in trends in incidence, and therefore may be a good indicator Yes6. To find the value of τwhich maximizes the correlation for each pair of cantons, we calculated ρXY(τ ) for values ​​of τ ranging from −30 to 30 days. Here, µ and σare the mean and standard deviation for each time series. We used this information to build forecast models for each township, as shown below. It should be noted that this measure is not proof of causality between pairs of geographic regions.seven. However, it allows selection of regions that can contribute to short-term forecasts of trends in other regions.

Spatial clustering

Using the 1−maximum (ρXY) as distance between blocks Xand Yes we can perform an agglomerative clustering of the cantons6, taking into account the optimal delay obtained as described above. Maximum correlations and optimal lags are stored as correlation and lag matrices, respectively (Figs. 4, 5).

Cross-correlation matrix between canton incidence time series.

This matrix shows the offset that maximizes the correlation between each pair of blocks.

Estimated prevalence and hospitalization rate

If we view epidemics as stochastic processes, we can use the available data to make inferences about their rates. Here, we used case, test, and hospitalization series to estimate prevalence and hospitalization rates.

Estimating prevalence from the number of reported cases is not trivial, as the frequency of testing varies considerably over time, influencing the number of cases detected. Thus, we constructed a simple hierarchical Bayesian model to estimate the prevalence of infection HPyou and hospitalization rate pHyou the number of tests Jyou and the number of positive tests (Caseyou).

We start by modeling the reported cases (Caseyou) as a binomial process (Eq. 2) with parameters not and p corresponding respectively to the number of daily tests and the fraction of positive tests8.

Suppose we assume that the number of tests and the coverage of tests are large enough that the population tested approximates a representative sample of the general population. In this case, the number of positive tests will allow us to estimate the probability that a test will be positive. This can be used to approximate the proportion of infected individuals in the general population, i.e. prevalence, HPyou. To get a correct representation of prevalence, we can model it using a beta prior: (P{v}_{t} sim Betaleft({alpha }_{p},{beta }_{p}right))technically, by treating it as a random variable.

$$Case{s}_{t} sim Binleft(n={T}_{t},p=P{v}_{t}right).$$

(2)

Similarly, we can model the probability of hospitalization as (P{h}_{t} sim Betaleft({alpha }_{h},{beta }_{h}right)) and Hospitalizations as a pair,

$$Hospitalization{s}_{t} sim Binleft(n=Cas{s}_{t},p=P{h}_{t}right).$$

(3)

The complete Bayesian model then becomes:

$$begin{array}{lll}Hospitalization{s}_{t}| P{h}_{t} & sim & {rm{Bin}}(n=Cas{s}_{t},p=P{h}_{t}), Cas{s}_ {t}| P{v}_{t} & sim & {rm{Bin}}(n={T}_{t},p=P{v}_{t}), P{h}_{ t} & sim & {rm{Beta}}({alpha }_{h},{beta }_{h}), P{v}_{t} & sim & {rm {Beta}}({alpha }_{p},{beta }_{p}).end{array}$$

The choice of non-informative Beta priors, ({alpha }_{h}={beta }_{h}={alpha }_{p}={beta }_{p}=0.5)was taken to start the inference from a neutral a priori perspective.

These simple probabilistic models have a closed-form expression for the posterior distribution of binomial probability parameters because they are based on conjugate (beta-binomial) distributions. Inference based on the models described here was performed with the PyMC python package (www.pymc.io) or using the closed formulas for later beta distributions.

The advantage of having a probabilistic representation of incidence is that it can be plugged into the binomial model of hospitalizations (Eq. 3).

Forecasting models

The use of ensemble models to forecast epidemiological time series has been successfully applied several times in recent years.6.9.

To predict the hospitalization curves of the cantons, we used a probabilistic model of gradient boosting machinetenbecause they can capture complex nonlinear relationships in multiple time series regression models.

The model was defined as

$$begin{array}{lll}ln{H}_{k,t} & = & {beta }_{0,k}+{beta }_{1,k}{C}_{k ,t-{tau }_{i}}+{beta }_{2,k}{H}_{k,t-{tau }_{i}} & & {+beta } _{3,k}{T}_{k,t-{tau }_{i}}+{beta }_{4,k}IC{U}_{k,t-{tau }_ {i}}+varepsilon ,end{array}$$

(4)

where Hk, t is modeled as a log-normal random variable, is the number of new hospitalizations in the canton kthe day you , VS is the incidence, J is the number of tests performed, and intensive care is the number of intensive care patients. Each of these predictors enters the model 14 times, with a lag τ= 1…14 (we use the last 14 days of each series as predictors). Similarly, different cantons of the same cluster as kare also added to the model with the same offsets.

The model of eq. (4), can be trained to predict hospitalizations for any day ≥you. Here we used it to predict the number of hospitalizations up to 14 days in advance (Fig. 9).

The forecast models are run daily, right after the data is updated in the EpiGraphHub database. The forecasts are then also saved in EpiGraphHub. The URLs of the updated datasets used and the result tables are shown in Table 1.

Continuous Integration Observability Explained – The New Stack https://amitysource.com/continuous-integration-observability-explained-the-new-stack/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 20:40:13 +0000 https://amitysource.com/continuous-integration-observability-explained-the-new-stack/ Continuous integration (CI) is a DevOps practice in which code provided by engineers is frequently and automatically integrated into a project.

Continuous integration (CI) is a DevOps practice in which code provided by engineers is frequently and automatically integrated into a project. CI involves the use of a shared version control system (VCS), which is usually accompanied by other tools (including testing tools) to manage the source code. Engineers push code changes using the shared VCS; the code is then reviewed and tested before the build process is complete. This whole process is automated to maximize speed and performance.

Observability refers to the practice of measuring the internal state of a system based on its corresponding output. It lets you gain insight into a system’s health by reviewing logs, data, and other key metrics.

CI Observability therefore provides visibility into your CI pipeline workflow. As more code is integrated, observability becomes an important process so that you can understand the performance of your infrastructure and ensure that quality code is submitted.

Why IC Observability Matters

A typical application’s software is a complex beast with many interconnected components. Therefore, problems or failures can occur in different components and at different stages of the workflow. CI Observability gives you insight into your software infrastructure and workflow. So when a problem inevitably arises, you can identify and fix it as quickly as possible.

CI Observability allows you to:

  • Assess the risk level of each pull request (PR): In a typical CI workflow, engineers generate a high volume of pull requests. With CI Observability, you can detect and analyze problems/failures (or the likelihood of them occurring) for each PR. This stops potential problems in their tracks in the early stages of development – especially major defects – thus limiting future negative costs and consequences.
  • Reduce test cycle times through test prioritization: Test prioritization is a process by which tests are ranked based on factors such as features, functionality, and critical components. This creates upfront cost and time requirements, but ultimately helps reduce test cycle time by producing efficient and relevant tests that allow you to make the necessary fixes.
  • Identify erroneous, slow, and flaky tests: Flaky tests are frustrating. Nobody likes to find out that a test that was previously passed is now failing. CI Observability helps you identify these tests, allowing you to remove or improve them and ensure that only quality, well-tested code is submitted.
  • Improve build times: Optimizing your build speed is crucial in development to help you ship your software sooner. To achieve this, your workflow requires proper testing and automation. However, factors such as flaky or flawed tests or bugs in your code can hinder this. CI Observability shows you where build speed impediments are so you can address them and improve your build times.

Pillars of observability

Now that we understand why CI observability is so crucial, let’s explore in more depth what exactly observability is. Observability consists of three main processes: logging, metrics, and tracing. Taken together, they give an overall picture of the health of your software.

Registration

Logging is the process of recording data about events with corresponding timestamps along with indexes with which they can be retrieved. For example, if a payment transaction fails in a payment system, such an event can be logged along with the timestamp at which the event occurred along with other necessary details that can give you an insight into the incident. . Logs are not only useful for recording errors; Recording logs is a general good practice because logs produce data for quantitative and analytical purposes.

Let’s review some benefits of journaling:

  • Event records can be retrieved easily anytime and for any reason using its searchable index.
  • Logs play an important role when you need to find and resolve errors.
  • Some logs can be monitored in real time, making it easy to find problems and solutions quickly.
  • They are plain texts, which makes them easy to store.

Metric

Metrics are quantifiable numeric values ​​that can be used to measure your app’s behavior, health, and performance. They can be collected, correlated, aggregated and analyzed to understand the state of your system as a whole.

While logs keep records of events, metrics go one step further by producing data from your system; while logs record events, metrics can show which events are really important. Thus, the metrics can be obtained from the logs.

Some benefits of metrics include:

  • Provide you with explicit data by which you can measure the health and progress of your application.
  • Detect anomalies in your system, which can help you predict future problems.

Trace

Tracing involves following the flow of an operation or request from its initiation to its completion. The information obtained is intended to be used to optimize the performance of your application. Tracing helps engineers determine which workflow steps contain bottlenecks, providing information including how and where the error occurred, what feature/function triggered the error, and what change caused the error. caused the error.

Tracing offers benefits such as:

  • Provide visibility on the different stages of an operation’s progress; this can be useful to optimize the application.
  • Help you detect areas in the operation path where problems occur.
  • Provide information with which you can improve the experience of your users.

CI Observability Challenges

With regard to the observability of ICs, specific difficulties are likely to arise. You may encounter challenges particularly related to the complexity and size of your application, which produce difficulties common to CI pipeline observability efforts.

Management of complexities

As more and more code is integrated, your application will become more and more complex. Getting a complete overview and understanding of your application can become difficult and overwhelming as you have to manage a growing multi-part application. As your application scales, the observability challenge also increases.

Real-time visibility

While it’s useful to be able to monitor your application in real time, finding or building a suitable tool can be time consuming if you choose to build and/or implement that tool in-house, or require significant financial outlay if you opt for outsourcing. However, without real-time monitoring, you won’t be able to detect errors in the early stages of your CI workflow, which can result in additional costs, both in time and money, for your team.

Observing substantial CI pipelines

Depending on the size of your project and the structure of your team, your application’s source code may become difficult for one person to understand. Getting good visibility into your CI workflow is essential when it comes to monitoring your workflow steps. Observability helps you identify relevant metrics and act on them quickly, and keeps a team of any size and complexity on the same page. As such, CI observability is essential for efficient and effective processes and for an optimized user experience.

Observability tools

Observability tools have features and functionality that allow you to perform actions such as monitoring, tracing, and logging. As such, they make it easy to gain essential knowledge about your application’s health and performance, thereby gaining insight into any needed fixes or improvements in your system.

Let’s review some key qualities you should look for in your observability tool:

  • Documentation: Good documentation makes the tool easier and faster to set up and use for your engineers.
  • Detailed dashboard: The tool should have a dashboard that can provide you with comprehensive information, as well as provide your team with a pleasant user experience.
  • Automatic error detection/analysis: The tool should be able to automatically detect errors at different stages of your workflow.
  • Event Alerts: Alerts notify you when certain anomalies occur within your application, enabling rapid response to critical events.
  • Event logging: The tool should support logging data in a way that is accessible and easy to retrieve.
  • Workflow monitoring: Monitoring CI workflows and viewing analytics based on system performance gives a holistic view of your system.
  • Real-time monitoring: The tool should be able to perform operations and return data on the go.

Common issues with monitoring tools

Having a powerful observability tool that offers all of the above features is key to optimizing your CI pipeline. However, many tools on the market today, whether APM or error tracking tools, fail in ways that can make full CI pipeline visibility difficult:

  • Some tools lack sufficient detail when dealing with applications with multiple interdependent components, which limits their usefulness and ability to provide complete visibility into your CI pipeline.
  • The volume of data generated from applications with complex architectures can be high, making it difficult to locate problems in the application. Most tools don’t handle this complexity adequately because they aren’t set up to handle and present huge volumes of data.
  • Troubleshooting and debugging can be a problem with tools that lack the functionality to effectively keep all relevant stakeholders up to date on the status of your CI pipeline.

It is essential to select an observability tool capable of handling complex architectures, large volumes of data and large multifaceted teams. Even if your application doesn’t have these needs today, you need a tool that can grow with you as you scale your application.

Introduction to foresight

Foresight is a comprehensive observability tool that gives you complete visibility into the state of your CI/CD pipelines. Foresight helps you assess the risk of new changes, reduce build times, and deliver quality software through powerful functionality.

Polaris fAST Services are fast, powerful, and easy-to-use cloud-based application security testing optimized for DevSecOps.

Quick. These days it can be hard for us to agree on a lot of things. But one thing seems to unite us all is that when we want something, we want it now. And we need it fast.

Quick is definitely a priority for anyone producing software. Release schedules are constantly compressed, so anything that reduces the time spent on developer tasks is a good thing. But in software development, speed isn’t just about how fast a particular function is performed. It is also about

  • Simplicity. Developers are inundated with complexity due to the sophistication of the software they create, as well as the increasingly complex and varied tool chains they work with. They need tools that simplify their work and minimize time wasted due to context switching.
  • Scalability. Organizations are creating far more software than they did just a few years ago. It is not uncommon for teams to manage hundreds or even thousands of concurrent development projects. It’s important that teams have tools that can handle the volume of apps and versions they manage.
  • Power. They say nothing kills productivity more than rework. It doesn’t matter how fast you did something the first time if you have to go back and do it a second time. So even though teams want tools that are quick and easy to use, they still need them to be powerful enough to do their job right the first time, to avoid rework.

For development teams, quick translates into simplicity, scalability and power, as well as speed.

Polaris fAST Services Overview

With these needs in mind, today we are announcing the general availability of two new SaaS offerings, Polaris fAST Static and fAST SCA. Polaris fAST (fast application security testing) services are built on the same powerful analytics engines at the heart of our industry-leading products, integrated and delivered from the cloud via the latest version of our Polaris Software Integrity Platform®.

Many teams have moved to cloud-based solutions for their development toolchains, from source code management, to build and integration, to packaging and delivery. The benefits of cloud-based solutions are well known: lower costs, greater agility and improved ease of use.

While these teams also want to realize these same benefits for their AST tools, until now most cloud-based AST platforms have forced them to compromise on one or more of their key requirements. An easy-to-use platform may not offer enough power and capabilities to effectively identify security issues in complex applications. One that offers speed on a small scale may not have the ability to scale to enterprise scale. And often, teams find that most cloud-based AST platforms are strong in static application security testing (SAST) but weaker in software composition analysis (SCA), or vice versa.

No need to compromise with Polaris

Our goal with Polaris is to provide teams with a no-compromise SaaS AST solution, and these new Polaris fAST services meet that goal. Polaris fAST Static uses the same fast and accurate scanning engines as Synopsys Coverity® SAST, the market leader in SAST, which provides broad language support and fast incremental scanning proven at scale in the largest software development projects in the world. Polaris FAST SCA helps teams stay ahead of their software supply chain risks by providing the same comprehensive open-source knowledge base and Black Duck® security advisories used in our market-leading SCA solution, Black Duck.

With Polaris, teams don’t have to choose between a SAST tool that is fast, scalable, and covers the variety of languages ​​and frameworks they use, and an SCA tool that gives them an accurate view of their open source risks with advisories. that are more timely, accurate and actionable than the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). They get both. And they get them in a unified SaaS platform that’s both easy for their team to use today and scale to the capacity they need in the future.

Automate security testing and policy enforcement with Polaris DevOps integrations

Integration and automation define modern software development. Developer actions in the IDE, source code manager (SCM), and bug tracking system trigger automated build, test, packaging, and deployment activities by their continuous integration (CI) system. Any tool that doesn’t fit seamlessly into this DevSecOps ecosystem creates friction, which can lead to teams missing deadlines or skipping tests to meet the schedule.

Polaris offers DevOps integrations that allow teams to automate security testing with their existing workflows and tools. You can schedule recurring security scans that will automatically pull code from the GitHub or GitLab repository for analysis. Or you can trigger event-based analytics in Jenkins CI workflows. Teams can also upload code directly through the Polaris UI for ad hoc testing.

Polaris also streamlines vulnerability triage and remediation workflows by providing policies that can automatically notify teams or “break the build”. And the Jira integration makes it easy to assign issues to developers for fixing.

Analyze security issues and trends across teams, applications, and scan types

Development teams bear the bulk of the responsibility for application security testing, triaging, and remediation of vulnerabilities, but responsibility for the overall coverage and success of the AppSec program generally rests with security teams, particularly in medium and large enterprises. Polaris helps these teams monitor and manage testing across their organization with built-in reports and dashboards, giving them insight into

  • Vulnerability trends. Teams can identify AppSec hotspots in their portfolio with views that show vulnerability severity and type information across apps, projects, and test types.
  • Status and performance of tests. Teams get a real-time view of current and past testing across apps, projects, and teams.
  • Administrator Changes. Administrators can track configuration changes to ensure the integrity of their test environments and aid in troubleshooting.

Optimize Safety Testing with Help from Polaris Value-Added Services

As an easy-to-use SaaS platform, Polaris is ideal for small organizations and teams that may have few or no experienced application security analysts on staff. To help these teams get the most out of Polaris and keep things running smoothly, Synopsys offers a number of value-added services. These include

  • Onboarding and adoption services, which help teams quickly bring new apps and team members to the platform
  • Triage services to help tune and remove noise from analysis results
  • Troubleshooting services that provide automatic monitoring and remediation of interrupted scans

So even if your the team is small our the team has what you need.

Ready to know more? Take a tour of Polaris with our team

Polaris and Polaris fAST services are constantly improving. We will be adding new fAST services to the platform in the coming months, along with advanced policy management, improved vulnerability prioritization, expanded integrations, and improved dashboarding and reporting capabilities.

Inflation has soared in Turkey, with official figures from the Turkish Statistical Institute (Tüik) showing the country’s inflation rate topped 85.5% year-on-year. Turkey’s inflation rate has been rising for 17 consecutive months and last month hit a 24-year high.

Turkey’s interest rate remains low, while inflation is rampant

Turkey, the transcontinental country located in Western Asia, is suffering financial difficulties as the region’s economy is in dire straits. On November 3, 2022, the Turkish Statistical Institute (Tüik) released the country’s official inflation rate figures and statistics show that the rate reached 85.5% year-on-year.

Reports further indicate that the cost of living in Turkey has increased significantly and the Tüik report shows that food prices in Turkey have increased by 99% year-on-year. Housing and rents jumped 85% for Turkish residents. On October 20, 2022, the Central Bank of Turkey and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lowered the region’s benchmark bank rate by 150 basis points (bps).

It was the third consecutive month of cuts according to statistics and Erdogan explained in September that interest was an enemy. “My biggest battle is against interests. My biggest enemy is self-interest,” Erdogan said in late September. He also noted at the time that the interest rate needed to “keep falling” despite runaway inflation.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has also urged Turkey to raise the country’s benchmark rate. Reports indicate that an IMF delegation has been sent to Ankara and Istanbul to bring people from the public and private sectors to find a solution to Turkey’s economic crisis.

“The policy rate cuts at the end of 2021 added to existing vulnerabilities and were followed by a depreciation of the lira and high inflation,” the IMF said. “The mission recommended early increases in policy rates accompanied by measures to strengthen central bank independence. Such movements would contribute to reducing inflation more durably.

Despite official inflation figures from the Turkish Statistical Institute, third-party figures tell a whole different story. Economists from the Inflation Research Group (Enag) point out that the annual increase in inflation in Turkey is closer to 185.5%. The researchers claim that the Enag Inflation Index has dynamic attributes that adapt faster to changes in the consumption habits of Turks.

Keywords in this story

185%, 85%, Discount rate, Discount rate, Enag Inflation Index, Erdogan, IMF, inflation, inflation rate, Inflation rate, Inflation Research Group (Enag), Monetary Fund (IMF), Lower Rate, Official Inflation Figures, Researchers, Tayyip Erdoğan, Third Party, Turkey, Turkish Inflation, Turkish Inflation, Turkish Statistical Institute

What do you think of Turkey’s skyrocketing inflation rate and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s abolition of interest rates? Let us know what you think about this topic in the comments section below.

Bend took the next step by drafting a code for unmanaged homeless camps on city rights-of-way in a working session Oct. 27. City staff provided Bend City Council with an early draft of the amended code amendments on September 21, since then Council provided input during business sessions.

The latest draft establishes when, where and how campsites are allowed to exist. The proposed new code allows campsites to be evicted once they are in the same location for a 24-hour period, after which residents could be given 72 hours’ notice to leave. The camper will have to move at least one block or 600 feet and cannot return to where they were kicked out for at least 72 hours. Once a camp is removed, the City may decide not to allow camping in the area for up to 14 days. The application of these rules could be suspended if a person does not have access to a shelter and participates in case management or services.

Under the proposed code, camps would be prohibited in residential areas or if the camp obstructs a sidewalk or road and in the Waterway Overlay Zone, which is a buffer zone near the Deschutes River. The new plan would also restrict camping to within 1,000 feet of any homeless shelter or secure parking program, or in areas deemed unsafe for camping by the city manager due to conditions such as construction.

The city also limits the grouping of camps, requiring that a group of three camps cannot be within 150 feet of another group of camps. Camps are not permitted to exceed 144 square feet, and behaviors such as hoarding trash, open flames, dumping sewage, and connecting to utilities could result in removal.

The Town will review its camping code policy at its November 2 business meeting and a first reading is scheduled for its November 6 regular meeting. Bend removed its third campsite this year on Oct. 27, where 13 people had set up tents on Second Street. The current municipal code requires the city manager to declare the camp unsafe according to a rubric that measures risks to public safety.

Rocketize Token, Chiliz and Algorand: Decentralized Ecosystems You Can’t Miss https://amitysource.com/rocketize-token-chiliz-and-algorand-decentralized-ecosystems-you-cant-miss/ Sun, 30 Oct 2022 10:24:49 +0000 https://amitysource.com/rocketize-token-chiliz-and-algorand-decentralized-ecosystems-you-cant-miss/ Rocketize is a memecoin focused on decentralization and satisfying its user community.

Rocketize is a memecoin focused on decentralization and satisfying its user community. The goal of its developers is to create wealth, as many crypto memes have done in the past.

Meanwhile, Rocketize Token adopts a transparency system to achieve its goals and ensures that the project is decentralized, not just in name. Starting with its developers, Rocketize has not created any particular crypto to store its tokens.

Most memecoins do this and call the wallet a developer wallet. Still, many sold the tokens from this wallet, leaving investors with worthless coins. As a result, Rocketize will not store its token, $JATO, or award any amount of it to any member of its team.

Additionally, Rocketize will adopt a different method for its DAO. It is a standard in the crypto industry for only investors with sufficient funds to participate in master projects. However, Rocketize changes this narrative by allowing any member of its community, the Atomic Nation, to participate in governance.

While governance votes will require a few JATO tokens, community members won’t need a large amount. In doing so, Rocketize keeps the JATO memecoin completely decentralized.

Rocketize vs. Algorand

Algorand is a proof-of-stake blockchain that offers fast transactions on a green network. “Green” means that Algorand does not emit carbon dioxide to operate its network.

Over 2,000 organizations use Algorand to deliver financial solutions in an easier, uncensored way. Meanwhile, the blockchain still has room to accommodate more DeFi services and businesses. Also, it provides resources that can help developers develop their ideas using open source code.

Algo is a cryptocurrency native to the Algorand blockchain. As of this writing, it is worth over $2.3 billion and has a market price of $0.33. Algorand aims to remain one of the top choices among blockchain networks, just as Rocketize aims to be one of the most valuable memecoins.

Rocketize vs Chiliz

Chillz is a crypto platform bringing sports to the blockchain world. It connects sports teams with fans using the Socios.com app. Chilliz was born out of the idea that blockchain and crypto offer a better way for a sports team to monetize their fan base and even reward their support.

So far, Socios.com has been an announcement and engagement tool for many sports teams. Juventus was the first football team to launch a fan token through the Chiliz network. Subsequently, Paris Saint Germain created the PSG token and listed it on Binance.

CHZ is the native cryptocurrency of Socios.com. Sports teams pay CHZ to deploy Fan Tokens on Socios.com. Similarly, fans use CHZ to purchase fan tokens for their favorite clubs.

Around 6 billion CHZ tokens are currently in circulation. Chiliz is worth over $1.1 billion in market capitalization at the time of this writing. Additionally, the market price of the coin is $0.2, an 80% drop from its all-time high.

Like Chiliz, Rocketize plans to create a versatile meme piece that can be used in the digital and real world.

Grab a Huge 60% Bonus

Again, Rocketize is a project centered around users and investors of $JATO. Therefore, the team rewards everyone who participates in the current presale with a chance to win up to 60% for the purchase of $JATO.

All you need to do is purchase a JATO token within the first 30 minutes of creating an account on the Rocketize platform. If you are wondering how to do this, you can follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Rocketize website
  2. Click Enter presale on the homepage
  3. You will see a page to create an account with Rocketize
  4. Enter your name, email and mobile number
  5. Select the crypto you intend to deposit from the available options and enter your purchase amount.
  6. Register your account
  7. Deposit the selected cryptocurrency and complete your purchase by converting the crypto to $JATO.

In addition to the initial bonus, there is an additional 8% reward for investors who buy $JATO in the first phase of the presale. In subsequent stages, Rocketize will reward buyers with additional 6% and 4% rewards in Stages 2 and 3, respectively.

The final thought

During the ongoing presale, Rocketize is selling JATO tokens at an affordable initial bid. After considering the huge possibilities of crypto meme projects and the potentials of the Rocketize DeFi ecosystem, you can decide to buy JATO tokens by following the steps above.

Arnica announced general product availability and $7 million in seed funding. The round was led by Joule Ventures and First Rays Venture Partners, with angel investments from industry leaders including Avi Shua, co-founder and CEO of Orca Security, Dror Davidoff, co-founder and CEO of Aqua Security and Baruch Sadogursky, lead developer. Jfrog relationships.

Arnica will use the funds to accelerate product development and scale its go-to-market teams.

Software supply chain attacks are on the rise, increasing 650% in the last year alone. According to a recent report from IBM, supply chain attacks now account for a fifth of all data breaches and the average cost of a supply chain compromise has reached an all-time high of 4.46 million of dollars.

Despite the growing threat, companies are hesitant to take drastic measures to achieve full protection for fear that it will impair the agility of their developers.

Arnica uses machine learning algorithms to identify the nuances of how each developer works and validates the authenticity of every change they make to code. This allows Arnica to detect a potential attacker impersonating a developer and prevent them from pushing malicious code to the codebase.

The platform also helps organizations manage excessive permissions and achieve least privileged status, minimizing the “explosion radius” of a potential breach without impacting developer workflow.

Arnica automatically revokes privileges that aren’t used, while deep integrations with everyday tools like Slack allow developers to reclaim permissions when needed. By providing self-service access management with just a few clicks, Arnica bypasses the usual friction needed to maintain minimal access to source code repositories.

“The rule of thumb when hardening development environments is: don’t hurt developer speed,” said Nir Valtman, co-founder and CEO of Arnica.

“A developer’s ability to make code changes quickly and seamlessly and ship products to users has a direct impact on revenue. We’ve created a solution that not only protects but empowers developers, allowing them to continue working the way they prefer, but in a safe environment. We believe that by learning how developers work, we can both protect company code and, at the same time, enable and support developers,” Valtman continued.

“In a market full of security solutions that only add value, Arnica’s instant resolution-oriented approach is a game-changer for enterprise development teams,” said Brian Rosenzweig, partner at Joule Ventures. .

“Arnica goes beyond simply reporting security issues – every issue identified can be immediately resolved with a one-click fix.” This allows companies to quickly protect their software supply chain from attack, while behavior-based detection ensures it remains secure over the long term. Arnica’s pragmatic approach and industry-leading technology allow companies to avoid costly breaches without compromising agility,” continued Rosenzweig.
