Finland's most widely-read daily Helsingin Sanomat starts out the week with a story on a record number of used diesel and petrol cars being imported. Tero Kallio, head of a car importing association, tells the paper that over 40,000 used diesel and petrol vehicles will be brought into Finland in 2018, accounting for one-third of all cars registered this year. Typically purchased from Sweden or Germany, the used cars that Finnish residents buy abroad tend to be larger, use more fuel and release more emissions. Two-thirds of them run on diesel, HS writes.This increase in imported used cars flies in the face of Finnish decision-makers' efforts to renew the relatively old and high-emission fleet of vehicles on Finnish roads. A variety of carrots, like a cash-for-clunkers programme, and sticks, like higher taxes on petrol, diesel and high-emission cars, have been introduced to encourage consumers to buy newer cars.EU courts have nevertheless ruled that older emission regulations should … [Read more...] about Monday’s papers: Record import of used cars, domestic food prices, and another imbibing pilot
Sponsored by Did you know that 50% of data breaches are paper-based? The GDPR date may have passed—but for many organizations, the journey toward compliance is only beginning. Much of the focus has been on what is commonly perceived as “customer data,” such as CRM databases and email lists. Yet GDPR isn’t prescriptive about the form of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), meaning the regulation also applies to unstructured documents, email, and even the contents of an organization’s filing cabinets.

Whether you’re still on the GDPR starting blocks or are strategizing about forward-thinking steps, join … [Read more...] about Are Paper Records the Low-hanging Fruit of GDPR?
opinion NorthJersey Published 9:13 p.m. UTC Jun 4, 2018 As New Jersey voters go to the polls in this year’s June primary elections, it is sobering to note that the voting machines on which the great majority will be casting their ballots represent “fatally flawed technology” that is in sore need of updating. Specifically, in the age of the grievous efforts of Russian hackers in 2016 and other threats to democracy as we know it, New Jersey needs to revamp its voting infrastructure to incorporate a more secure system — preferably one that includes a verifiable paper record that can be checked against the electronic tally. In a time in this country when some of the very basic tenets of a free and just government are under attack from both within and without, the integrity of the ballot is perhaps more important than ever before to assure that our institutions remain intact. That said, the state must move to address these shortcomings in the way New Jersey … [Read more...] about Editorial: NJ voting technology must include paper record
