The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-04-02T07:42:59Z Bookaskip Australia Tell the Story of the Skip Bin 2021-04-02T07:42:59Z bookaskip-australia-tell-the-story-of-the-skip-bin A skip bin is a handy waste solution that can be used for many functions. Not only is it the main part of Bookaskip’s profession, but it is also arguably one of the most efficient ways of removing waste. Although easily identified and often seen in communities worldwide today, skip bins haven’t always been the popular design they are today. In fact, the idea of skip bins has been said to initially come from beekeepers. As mentioned earlier, the general idea of skip bins has been said to originate from European beekeepers in the 1700s. Unlike the skip bins Bookaskip provide to their Australian clients, these skips were baskets of straw, wicker or hollowed logs. Made to build bee colonies, this procedure became outdated and slowly forgotten by the 1800s. A closer version of the skips we see today was first seen in the mines during the Industrial Revolution. It was a jumbo version of wheeled baskets that was made to transfer materials around quickly. It was also used by miners to measure what they have dug out so far. This version is still used today but as steel containers on tracks. As for the name, it wasn’t always called ‘skip bin’. During the Industrial Revolution, skips were deemed a ‘skep’, which originates from the Norse language word ‘skeppa’, that essentially means basket. Since then, the term has evolved to ‘skip’ and eventually ‘skip bins’. After the Industrial Revolution, skips saw a different purpose. Within the 1920s, tradespeople in the Southport area of England started using containers that closely resembled the ones used in the coal mines. From functioning as construction skips to collecting general waste, this is where they began to be used for rubbish removal. During this time, a problem occurred where waste collection was becoming increasingly hard to manage. In a meeting discussing this issue, a truck manufacturing employee suggested the idea of utility vehicles carrying around detached boxes to collect materials, introducing the skip bin hire we see today, and for more information on skip bin hire Perth, skip hire Melbourne and skip hire Sydney please go to https://www.bookabin.com.au .  Geotab and JESI join forces to help organisations manage the safe movement of mobile and remote workers 2021-03-10T02:34:01Z geotab-and-jesi-join-forces-to-help-organisations-manage-the-safe-movement-of-mobile-and-remote-workers Now available on the Geotab Marketplace, the JESI solution helps mitigate risk for workers by automating emergency alerts and enabling real-time responses to critical eventsAPAC 9th March 2021 - Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation and JESI, an Australian-based Global Remote Worker Management company, today announced the availability of JESI’s safety solution on the Geotab Marketplace.

Bookasbin (AUS) Has Some Good Ideas on How to Get Rid of Your Old Sofa 2021-03-02T18:29:16Z bookasbin-aus-has-some-good-ideas-on-how-to-get-rid-of-your-old-sofa This month Bookabin have something a bit different, but nonetheless, useful when wanting to get rid of your old sofa. Say you have purchased a new sofa and now have to get rid of the old one; Bookabin explain how to take apart a sofa so you can take it down in pieces.     Firstly, you will need the right tools for the job before you can begin to take the sofa apart.   A claw hammer for removing nails.  A set of Allen keys.  Both Phillips and Standard head screwdrivers.  A set of pliers for removing staples.  A handsaw.  A box cutter knife.     Step One- Remove any Pillows and Cushions  Make sure to throw them in the skip if you are not planning to keep any pillows.      Step Two- Remove Upholstery  This step is where your box cutter knife comes in. You will need to cut away the fabric to expose the frame beneath it. It may be as simple as pulling staples, but in most cases, some cutting is required. If you are going to reuse the fabric, make sure to cut in neat, straight lines; if you are throwing it in your rental skip bin, then you don’t need to worry about neatness. Now you can see the exposed frame and take it apart, but not just yet.     Step Three- Remove the Legs  This step is simple enough. Sometimes you can unscrew sofa legs by hand, in other cases it will require a screwdriver or Allen keys. If the legs are fused, use a saw to cut them off.     Step Four- Take the Frame Apart  Now you can use your screwdrivers or Allen keys to disassemble the sofa frame. In some cases, you may have to pull nails as well. Once you have it apart, you can cut wooden pieces into a smaller, more manageable size, so it is easier to carry and throw into your skip bin.    Bookabin will do the rest! Simply go to their website and follow the instructions to hire a skip in your district, and for more information on Aussie skip bins, skip bins South Australia and skip bin hire Victoria please go to https://www.bookabin.com.au . ICS vulnerabilities increased in second half of 2020 as gaps in remote work expand attack surfaces 2021-02-05T00:32:05Z ics-vulnerabilities-increased-in-second-half-of-2020-as-gaps-in-remote-work-expand-attack-surfaces Throughout the second half (2H) of 2020, 71% of industrial control system (ICS) vulnerabilities disclosed were remotely exploitable through network attack vectors, according to the second Biannual ICS Risk & Vulnerability Report released today by Claroty, the industrial cybersecurity company. The report also revealed a 25% increase in ICS vulnerabilities disclosed compared to 2019, as well as a 33% increase from 1H 2020.The report comprises the Claroty Research Team’s discoveries alongside trusted open sources, including the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), CERT@VDE, MITRE, and industrial automation vendors Schneider Electric and Siemens. During 2H 2020, 449 vulnerabilities affecting ICS products from 59 vendors were disclosed. Of those, 70% were assigned high or critical Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) scores, and 76% do not require authentication for exploitation. “The accelerated convergence of IT and OT networks due to digital transformation enhances the efficiency of ICS processes, but also increases the attack surface available to adversaries,” said Amir Preminger, vice president of research at Claroty. “Nation-state actors are clearly looking at many aspects of the network perimeter to exploit, and cybercriminals are also focusing specifically on ICS processes, which emphasises the need for security technologies such as network-based detection and secure remote access in industrial environments. It is heartening to see a growing interest in ICS within the security research community, as we must shine a brighter light on these vulnerabilities in order to keep threats at arm’s length.” Vulnerabilities on the rise in critical manufacturing, energy, and water and wastewater sectorsThe critical manufacturing, energy, water and wastewater, and commercial facilities sectors—all designated as critical infrastructure sectors—were by far the most impacted by vulnerabilities disclosed during 2H 2020 and shows increases from the previous two years across the board: Critical manufacturing increased 15% from 2H 2019 and 66% from 2H 2018Energy increased 8% from 2H 2019 and 74% from 2H 2018Water and wastewater increased 54% from 2H 2019 and 63% from 2H 2018Commercial facilities increased 14% from 2H 2019 and 140% from 2H 2018 Assessment of ICS vulnerabilities sees growth in third-party researchers The number of ICS vulnerabilities disclosed in 2020 increased by more than 30% compared to 2018 and nearly 25% compared to 2019. Two factors contribute to this spike in recent years: a heightened awareness of the risks posed by ICS vulnerabilities, and researchers and vendors increasingly focused on identifying and remediating security flaws as effectively and efficiently as possible. This growth indicates security research focused on ICS products is maturing. Third-party researchers were responsible for 61% of discoveries, many of which were cybersecurity companies. This signals a change in focus to include ICS alongside IT security research, which is further evidence of the accelerated convergence between IT and OT. Among all third-party discoveries, 22 reported their first disclosures, a positive sign of growth in the ICS vulnerability research market. The Claroty Research Team discovered and disclosed 41 vulnerabilities during 2H 2020, affecting 14 vendors. These represent the direction and core objectives of the team’s research focus. Overall, Claroty researchers have found and disclosed more than 70 ICS vulnerabilities to date.

Contact BookaBin (AUS) For A Skip For That Garage Clean-out 2021-01-28T11:37:40Z contact-bookabin-aus-for-a-skip-for-that-garage-clean-out BookaBin provides customers with skips that suit specific waste requirements. From big to small waste removal requirements, BookaBin provides skip bins from as small as 2 cubic metres up to as large as 30 cubic metres, perfect for that garage clean-out. Are you one of those people who treat your garage as a place meant for storing tools, toys, sporting gear, landscaping equipment and perhaps an extra fridge or two? You are not alone! We often lose sight of our garage’s main purpose: to store and protect some of our most valuable possessions - our vehicles. For instance, bird droppings are highly acidic, and that, combined with what alternating sun and cold can do to an exposed car, is a recipe for potentially expensive paint damage. Also, when you have cleaned out your garage, your car will stay out of the heat of the sun and won't have to work as hard to reach comfortable operating conditions. Parking in a garage will also limit your car's exposure to UV rays, which can be particularly harmful to a vehicle's interior. None of that is an issue with a garaged vehicle. Beyond protecting your vehicle from accidental damage, putting your vehicle out of sight helps decrease opportunities for the intentional kind of damage as well. After all, a locked garage puts another layer of security between your vehicle and potential thieves, and it decreases the chance of vandalism in the same way.  Doing your own minor car repairs can be both economical and great for your ego, and a cleaned up garage can provide a clean, relatively weather-free place for your efforts. You'll also have access to electrical outlets for handy resources such as tools, lights, heaters and fans. A garage keeps you covered from the elements, so you can tinker to your heart's content. Finally, you should clean your garage not just to keep your car in, but also to keep pests out. Messy garages make attractive homes for rats, mice, spiders and other unwelcome critters, many of which are eager to follow you right into your home. A clean garage will also help prevent pets and other animals from taking shelter in a warm engine compartment or other areas of a vehicle, then getting injured—or worse—when the vehicle is started, so for more information on skip bin hire NSW, skip bins Brisbane and skip bins Australia please go to https://www.bookabin.com.au . Some Handy Tips on How to Prepare Your House for Selling From Bookabin AUS. 2020-12-21T09:15:22Z some-handy-tips-on-how-to-prepare-your-house-for-selling-from-bookabin-aus Not being a real estate agency, Bookabin obviously can’t give you tips on how to sell your house, but being very experienced in their field of skip bin hire, they can certainly help with some hints on how to prepare your house for selling. As most real estate agents will advise, so do the Bookabin crew; you need to clear out all that personal junk you have been hoarding (yes, hoarding) for years to have your house looking clean and shiny to attract buyers. The first step you should take, before you even start to throw out stuff, is to book your skip bin well in advance, which means you then have plenty of time to consider what is going to go in the space provided, and then get cracking on this important part of your preparation.  Bookabin’s next piece of advice is, “don’t leave the collection date until the day before the auction”. This may look like an obvious exhortation, but you would be surprised at how many auctions unfortunately have to take place with that great big skip bin standing in the driveway – not a good look we would all agree.  Finally, Bookabin advise that, despite all their best intentions, skip collections sometimes get missed or delayed. They have, over the years, experienced trucks breaking down, traffic congestion and now COVID-19 travel restrictions, and plain old human error.  These are all very valuable tips in relation to the preparation in the selling of your home, but don’t forget that Bookabin are there for all your clean-up, home renovation or construction waste disposal needs. They will have a local skip company that can provide the service you need at the most competitive prices anywhere in Australia, so for more information on skip bin hire, skip bin hire NSW and skip bin sizes please go to https://www.bookabin.com.au . Bookabin AUS. With Some Advice on Skip Bin Deliveries 2020-11-27T10:59:12Z bookabin-aus-with-some-advice-on-skip-bin-deliveries Bookabin AUS. Say that poor or dangerous site access is one of the most common reasons why a skip supplier cancels the delivery of a skip and you get charged with a fee, and they explain what you should check before hiring any skip.  First of all, take sure there are no overhead wires, trees, branches or structures such as house eaves that block the delivery of the skip. Drivers will usually refuse to place a skip if there is a chance or risk of injury or damage. Walk around the area the truck needs to use to deliver the skip bin and look at any potential problems.  Driveways must be at least three meters wide for a truck to drive down to place a bin. Please check nothing is blocking your driveway and please ensure that no cars are blocking your driveway. Suppliers run to tight schedules because, as the old saying goes, “Time is Money”. The driver cannot afford to sit and wait while cars are moved. Quite often the skip supplier will go straight to their next booked job, taking your skip with them! If you follow these basic guidelines you will avoid unwanted hassles and charges.  BookaBin also provides customers with skips that suit specific waste requirements. From big to small waste removal requirements, BookaBin provides skip bins from as small as two cubic metres up to as large as 30 cubic metres.  Location is also not a problem with BookaBin as they provide a range of suppliers offering bin hire services in all major areas, including Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Hobart and Perth.  Through BookaBin, customers can easily get a quote online for your skip bin requirements, rent a skip from the best suppliers, and pay online. BookaBin is an easy-to-use website and booking engine that provides customers with the fastest and easiest platform to compare skip bin prices from reliable suppliers.

Claroty Partners with CrowdStrike to Protect Industrial Control System Environments 2020-11-23T02:13:40Z claroty-partners-with-crowdstrike-to-protect-industrial-control-system-environments Claroty, the global leader in operational technology (OT) security, today announced it is partnering with CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection, on an integration between The Claroty Platform and the CrowdStrike Falcon platform. This integration delivers comprehensive visibility into industrial control system (ICS) networks and endpoints, with a one-stop-shop for information technology (IT) and OT asset information directly within The Claroty Platform. It also delivers enhanced detection of ICS threats across the IT/OT boundary without the need for added connectivity, signature reconfiguration, or manual updates. The result is more effective and efficient IT/OT security governance and strengthened security posture spanning all connected sites. Digital transformation has caused once-isolated OT networks to become interconnected with the rest of the enterprise through the IT network, and the COVID-19-induced shift to remote work has accelerated IT/OT convergence even more. These conditions have expanded the attack surface within ICS networks, giving threats such as ransomware clear pathways across the IT/OT boundary. At the same time, IT and security operations center (SOC) teams are increasingly responsible for protecting these new pathways, but they are hindered by the lack of integration between their OT tools and traditional IT security tools to provide effective measures for doing so. “In 2020, the top sector being hit with ransomware is manufacturing,” said Dawn Cappelli, VP Global Security and CISO of Rockwell Automation. “It is imperative that we secure the converged IT/OT environment, and the integration of Claroty and CrowdStrike brings two of the top security technologies together to do just that.” By combining Claroty’s OT expertise, threat signature database, and asset discovery and monitoring technology with CrowdStrike’s industry-leading IT endpoint telemetry, derived from 4 trillion endpoint-related signals per week from across the globe, the joint solution delivers full-spectrum IT/OT visibility and threat detection coverage for ICS networks. “Effectively protecting modern ICS networks requires IT and SOC teams to have a complete inventory of both IT and OT assets, as well as the ability to detect, assess, and mitigate threats and the corresponding risks they face,” said Matthew Polly, Vice President of Worldwide Alliances, Channels and Business Development at CrowdStrike. “This integration with Claroty allows our customers to leverage the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to improve the security posture of their OT environments, bridging the gap between IT and OT.” Key capabilities include: Threat Detection: By fusing CrowdStrike’s ability to identify targeted and compromised endpoints with Claroty’s extensive OT monitoring capabilities, the two companies have created an extensive and actionable IT/OT threat signature database for ICS networks. All signatures can be immediately pushed from The Claroty Platform’s Enterprise Management Console (EMC) to all connected sites in just one click. Asset Discovery and Enrichment: Claroty can automatically identify and enrich IT-oriented ICS assets, such as human machine interfaces (HMIs), historian databases, and engineering workstations (EWs), in which a CrowdStrike agent is installed. Claroty fetches the IT specific properties from the asset as well as the unique manufacturer configuration file from CrowdStrike and then parses that file, without needing to connect to the ICS network. “One of the most impactful benefits of The Claroty Platform is that it can leverage existing IT security infrastructure to protect OT assets and networks,” said Galina Antova, Co-founder and Chief Business Development Officer of Claroty. “This particular integration is uniquely beneficial to Claroty customers because it is the first in which data flows into The Claroty Platform rather than from it, making it a comprehensive repository of both IT and OT asset information. We are very proud to join forces with CrowdStrike to make our comprehensive OT security capabilities more accessible to IT and SOC teams, at a time when they are entrusted with protecting OT more than ever before.” To learn more about the CrowdStrike-Claroty joint solution, download the integration brief or visit the Claroty blog. On Thursday, December 3, Claroty and CrowdStrike will host a webinar, “Extending Security Controls to OT Networks with the CrowdStrike-Claroty Joint Solution.” Register here.

Bookabin (AUS) Say It’s Not a Good Idea to Overload Your Skip Bin 2020-10-28T10:23:24Z bookabin-aus-say-it-s-not-a-good-idea-to-overload-your-skip-bin Whether you are using a skip bin for moving house, home renovations, or a commercial project, you might be tempted to overfill it. It seems like a good idea, as the assumption is that you will save money, it’s easier than getting another one, and there’s no harm in it. However, Bookabin say that overloading a skip bin is actually dangerous, illegal, and costly. Read on to find out why you shouldn’t overload a skip bin, and to learn how to safely load it.     It is dangerous to overload your skip bin, as it puts you, your neighbours, and even your family at risk. There will be sharp, broken items sticking out the top and this could easily hurt passers-by, or those handling the skip bin. Also, if it is overflowing, then items can fall out and land on someone or roll into the street. When an overfilled skip bin is in transit, it is especially hazardous, as debris can fly out and land on the road or hit another vehicle.    It may seem like you are saving money by overfilling your skip bin, but in fact it will mean more costs in the long run. If your skip bin is overloaded, then the truck driver who is meant to pick it up could refuse to take it. This is because the skip may exceed weight restrictions and could damage the truck and put the driver at risk. In this situation you will have to pay extra costs to have the waste removed.    The main thing you need to know when loading your skip bin is that you can’t fill it higher than the sides of the bin. On most skip bins there is a red ‘fill line’ which shows the limit of where your waste can be filled to, and you should stick to this. It is usually obvious if you have overfilled it, so don’t make the mistake of thinking that you will get away with it – just remove any excess and keep to the limit.    Finally, don’t underestimate how much waste you have to remove, and be realistic about the skip size you need. Even though you may want to save money, if you choose one that is too small and overfill it, you will have to pay more. To find out what size skip bin you need, and for more information on skip bins South Australia, skip bin sizes and skip bin hire costs please go to https://www.bookabin.com.au .

Construction and demolition wastes are among the heaviest and most voluminous waste streams which include drywall, bricks, concrete, landscape, roofing, wood and lumber. Additionally, if you’re a homeowner who has years of massive waste build up in your garage or around your property, your best bet is to hire one of Bookabin’s skip bins.  It is also important to take into account the duration of the project, as debris and hazardous items like nails, cut out roofing sheets and bricks should not litter your project site. Such things should be thrown inside a skip bin as the project moves on so that your project site will always be neat and tidy. Some projects could take months or years to be completed, and because of your busy schedule, you can’t be going to the landfill at intervals. The only thing that is far more valuable than money is time; therefore, do not make the mistake of undervaluing your time and make things more efficient in your project site. Another reason to consider DIY waste management is when you have space constraints in your job site. But contractors, building project managers or homeowners with moderately large construction or demolition project should go for a skip bin no matter your budget. The hassle factor of taking the waste from your project site should be considered. If you hire a skip bin, no back-breaking work for you and you can extend the duration of the skip bin in your property, so for more information on skip bins Western Australia, skip bin hire NSW and skip bin hire costs please go to https://www.bookabin.com.au .  Claroty and Check Point Software Technologies Partner to Secure Industrial Control Networks 2020-08-12T00:59:19Z claroty-and-check-point-software-technologies-partner-to-secure-industrial-control-networks Claroty, the global leader in operational technology (OT) security, today announced its partnership with Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd.
