Auditor blocks solar developer accounts over missing deposits | #TpromoCom #GreenEnergy #SolarPower #Fraud | State-owned solar company Panda Green will miss Friday’s deadline for publishing its audited figures for last year and new owners Beijing Energy have announced the formation of a committee to investigate the payment of $144 million in deposits to secure development rights for projects which never happened.

The astonishing oversight which appears set to cost Chinese solar developer Panda Green a thumping RMB1,022 million (US$144 million) – and which was highlighted by pv magazine last month – will see the company auditor refuse to sign off the 2019 accounts by the deadline stipulated by the Hong Kong exchange where the company is listed.

Trump administration moves against Chinese telecom firms citing national security

Trump recognizes China as the threat that they are to our National Security (image)

Trump administration moves against Chinese telecom firms citing national security | #TpromoCom #NationalSecurity #China #TeleCommunications | The Trump administration is moving aggressively on national security grounds against Chinese telecom firms, with key agencies this week recommending that a subsidiary of China’s largest landline provider have its U.S. license revoked.

The advice to pull a license from China Telecom Americas was prompted by long-standing concerns that the firm, whose parent company is state-owned, poses unacceptable risks of Chinese espionage and disruption of U.S. networks, U.S. officials said.

Utility Monitoring: A New and Exciting RMR Opportunity for Security Integrators and Alarm Dealers

Utility Monitoring offers a new source of RMR (image)The monitoring of intrusion alarm systems, closed circuit television, access control, fire alarms and other is a common way to create a bountiful and reliable supply of cash flow. Not only does it provide operating capital, but when it comes to retirement, when it’s time to sell the business, it will jack the going price by many times.

If you’re a security integrator or an alarm dealer, you can add considerably to the RMR you’re making every month now by adding Utility Monitoring to your list of monitored systems. Believe me, someone’s going to do it, and so why not you?

#WHO, coronavirus testing lab hit by #hackers as opportunistic attacks ramp up | #TpromoCom #COVID19 | The World Health Organization has reportedly seen attempted cyberattacks double since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, and a vaccine testing facility has also been targeted with ransomware.

According to Reuters, WHO has seen a marked increase in attempted cyberattacks – with one of the most recent reportedly perpetrated by a hacker group called DarkHotel. The unsuccessful attack spoofed a webpage to look like a login portal for agency employees in an attempt to steal passwords.

Chinese AI unicorns target smart cities & public security

Security World Market (image)

Chinese AI unicorns target smart cities & public security | #TpromoCom #AI #Military #Chinese | According to research company, Memoori, in a bid to be at the forefront of the technology, China is pouring billions of dollars into companies that are researching AI technology, with video analytics and IoT platforms for smart cities being two of the prime applications.

Memoori estimates that China accounts for approx. 31% of global physical security revenues and says that it is now the biggest single country market for physical security products having increased its share by almost 50% in the last 7 years.

Video surveillance equipment has been the major contributor here, with the market growing rapidly through a boom in new construction and safe city projects in the public sector. Hundreds of cities in China, large and small, have jumped on the smart cities bandwagon, as advocated by Beijing, and have established budgets to support such initiatives.

A New Consensus Is Emerging On How to Handle The Risk from China’s 5G

A New Consensus Is Emerging On How to Handle The Risk from China’s 5G | #TpromoCom #China #Spy #5G | Chinese telecom tech is invading the physical world, but Europeans and industry have strategies to contain the threat.

“No one calls it an intelligence risk, but national security agencies across the world are concerned about China’s 5G modems and other devices,” says Al Colombo, Senior Design Specialist with TpromoCom of Canton, Ohio.

Much of the Western intelligence debate around Chinese high-speed 5G technology has focused on hardware and software. Once the hardware is already out in the wild — which most think is inevitable — the future of the fight is in managing risk. It’s doable, if not yet widely advertised, according to several experts speaking at a U.S. intelligence conference this week, by quarantining Chinese equipment and deploying smarter electromagnetic spectrum management tools to better handle threats.

Bottom line: Huawei leads the world in the ability to rapidly produce cheap telecom hardware (as well as the underlying software.) Recent reports, including one from NATO, state it plainly. It’s one reason why European countries, including U.S. allies like Germany and the U.K., have been reluctant to ban tech from Huawei outright, even in the face of heavy U.S. pressure.

Artificial Intelligence and the Security Dilemma

Artificial Intelligence and the Security Dilemma | #TpromoCom #AI #Drone #NationalSecurity | Recent breakthroughs in machine learning and artificial intelligence (A.I.) have prompted breathless speculation about their national security applications. Yet most of that work has focused narrowly on their implications for autonomous weapons systems, rather than on the broader security environment. Apart from Michael Horowitz and a handful of others, few scholars have sketched out how A.I. might affect core questions of international relations and foreign policy. (scroll down for more please)

One key challenge stands out: What influence will A.I. have on security dilemmas between great powers? With the two leading producers of A.I., the United States and China, already eyeing each other warily, the question is far from an idle one. If we are to maintain a stable international order, we need to better understand how artificial intelligence may exacerbate the security dilemma—and what to do about it.

Editor’s Note: We know artificial intelligence will change the very nature of war—but we don’t know how. The United States, China, and other powers recognize this transformative potential and, even as they seek to exploit it, fear that others will gain the upper hand in an artificial intelligence arms race. My Brookings colleague Chris Meserole describes how artificial intelligence might produce a new security dilemma and proposes several ways to mitigate the risk. –Daniel Byman

Huawei looks to challenge US rivals by promising big investment in AI talent 

Huawei looks to challenge US rivals by promising big investment in AI talent | #TpromoCom #AI #China #Investment |  “At Huawei we don’t like the word transformation,” the telecom giant’s Rotating Chairman Eric Xu tells us via his interpreter. “What Huawei is doing isn’t transformation because that implies you’ve changed from A to B. What we’ve done instead is made progress and moved forward.”

Huawei looks to challenge US rivals by promising big investment in AI talent

Since its inception 56 years ago, artificial intelligence has succumbed to two winters where it suffered from a lack of funding and interest. However, as Xu rather poetically puts it, Winter always gives way to Spring, marking a new beginning for artificial intelligence and its pervasive capabilities.

The big announcements made from Huawei Connect in Shanghai prove that a lack of funding and investment will no longer be a worry for the AI industry. First was their full-stack, all-scenario AIportfolio which includes chips, chip enablement, a training and inference framework to “enable inclusive AI.”
