High winds crush cars at Bako Northern

first_imgBakery wholesaler Bako Northern bore the brunt of the winds yesterday when a roof collapsed on 15 cars as storms battered parts of the UK.A row of five almost-finished industrial units in Langley Moor, County Durham, came down as if it had been subject to a controlled explosion, the operations manager at Bako Northern next door said. The roof blew off on to Bako’s car park, crushing employees’ vehicles, but injuring no-one.The dramatic collapse happened at around 9.40am on Monday, when the winds were gusting strongly across the industrial estate.The building that collapsed was in the process of being finished, but there were no workers on site at the time. It was thought there were no doors on the property when the gust brought it down. It is not owned by Bako Northern and is on an adjoining site.Group operations manager Sean Kelly said: “It was extremely lucky for us, all our drivers were out, there were no contractors or visitors. There was nobody hit by a flying brick, though debris was strewn across the yard.“We have to thank our lucky stars it happened when it did, when we were at our quietest. When we saw the CCTV afterwards, it looked like a building brought down by a controlled explosion.”A total of 10 fire crews attended, as well as the air ambulance, which arrived as a precaution, but fortunately no-one was trapped.last_img read more

Tech Time: Policies and vendors and staff! Oh, my!

first_img 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » The infamous Carbanak cybergang was uncovered in 2015 after its members had stolen more than $1 billion from over 100 banks worldwide. Notably, the group began each cyber-heist with a simple spear phishing attack aimed at individual employee computers.All it took for the heist to work was one employee clicking on an infected email link or attachment. This click would inject malware into that one computer which, in turn, infiltrated the internal network and installed information-gathering spyware on administrative computers. From there, it was relatively simple for the attackers to mimic the bank clerks’ activities, allowing them to hijack e-payment systems, inflate internal account balances and even program ATMs to dispense cash.Fiendishly clever? Yes. Surprisingly easy for the thieves to execute? Yes, again. Let’s look at some lessons your credit union can learn from such a simple but effective attack.We want to note that we believe in the points we are about to make in this article because we do them ourselves. At PSCU and its consulting group, Advisors Plus, we emphasize employee education, implement proper vendor controls and create easily understood information protection policies. Each of these has proven to be a cost-effective, common-sense way to protect information and financial assets.last_img read more
