The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

___

The Ohio State football team is resuming full practices again in preparation for Saturday’s game at Michigan State.

Ohio State said in a one-sentence statement that the team would “resume organized team activities” on Tuesday afternoon.

The Buckeyes will do so while managing COVID-19 issues, and will be without coach Ryan Day, who tested positive last week. Defensive line coach Larry Johnson is assuming head coaching duties for the week and for Saturday’s game in East Lansing.

Ohio State chose to cancel its game at Illinois last week because of an unacceptable number of COVID cases among players and staff in the program.

No. 3 Ohio State (4-0, CFP No. 4) needs to play this week and next week against Michigan to have enough games in to be eligible for the Big Ten title.

Data Backup Practices Can Thwart Ransomware

Spectra Logic is a 41-year-old private company, based in Boulder, Colorado, that according to the company’s website, “develops data storage and data management solutions that solve the problem of digital preservation for organizations dealing with exponential data growth.”  On May 7, 2020, and related to the move to remote work by Spectra Logic employees, the company experienced a ransomware attack by one of the more active ransomware malware that encrypted a significant amount of the company’s data.

Ransomware is a type of malware, often spread through phishing emails (as was the case for Spectra Logic), that once opened, encrypts an organization’s data, making it unavailable to access until the company pays a ransom to have the data decrypted.  Note that sometimes the malware source takes the money but never decrypts the data, so paying a malware source may not result in getting

After making a name for himself going after Facebook’s and Google’s data practices, Austrian lawyer Max Schrems—and his advocacy group Noyb—is setting his sights on a new tech giant. According to two separate complaints his group filed with regulatory bodies based in Germany and Spain, the advertising tech that comes baked into Apple’s iPhones allows countless third parties to slurp data from these devices largely unimpeded.

Specifically, both complaints hone in on what’s known as Apple’s identifier for advertisers, or IDFA. We’ve covered adIDs before, but in short: they’re a string of numbers that gets assigned to every phone allowing mobile app developers—and the companies advertising inside of those mobile apps—to track users interact with a given app. As other analysts have pointed out in the past, you can kind if think of the IDFA as the mobile equivalent of what

Event Tech in the Wake of COVID-19: 4 Best Practices to Help Planners Bypass the Challenges

Every week, I speak with planning teams that are faring well—even in the current climate. How do they do it? While each team built a different path to success, all have one thing in common: They lean on technology to reduce the fallout from COVID-19.

Here are four best tech practices of successful teams today. The aim is to help planners bypass the challenges and emerge strong on the other side of the pandemic shutdown. 

1. Be agile, and do more with less.
Historically, planning teams have relied on separate tools to handle different activities, from event registration to engagement and reporting. But complexity doesn’t work in a challenging economy when smaller teams are stretched thin. There’s no

China Unveils New Regulations To Curb Antitrust Practices

KEY POINTS

  • Internet platforms not outside of antitrust laws: Regulators
  • A week ago, regulators grounded Ant Group’s $35-billion IPO
  • New rules by regulators for internet transactions will be released by June 2021

Upsetting China’s super-rich and its investors alike, the Communist nation is stepping up efforts to control some of its biggest technology companies in a bid to weed out antitrust practices.

On Tuesday, Beijing announced new regulations to curb monopolistic practices in the internet industry and reduce the influence of big corporations like Alibaba and Tencent in the market, Bloomberg reported. This comes a week after Beijing put new restrictions on the financial markets and in turn, suspended the $35-billion IPO of the Ant Group, which was expected to be the largest on the planet.

With the new regulations, Beijing seeks to create a framework, wherein anti-competitive practices can be stopped. These practices include sharing customer data and mergers

U.S. Space Force outlines practices, priorities

Nov. 9 (UPI) — A 16-page plan, written by U.S. Space Force chief Gen. John Raymond to outline the new service branch’s management practices, was revealed by the branch on Monday.

“Chief of Space Operations’ Planning Guidance” is a formal guide to Raymond’s vision for the Space Force and provides the framework for its management, priorities and identity, Space Force officials said.

The branch was first organized in 2019 as part of the U.S. Air Force, before its formal establishment as the 6th branch of the U.S. military in December 2019.

Raymond was sworn in as head of the branch in January.

“I expect all uniformed and civilian space professionals, and USAF personnel assigned to USSF units and staffs, to read and begin implementing this guidance immediately,” Raymond wrote in the new document.

Itemized priorities include empowerment of a “lean and agile service,” development of warfighters, delivery of relevant new

Zoom has settled with the FTC over ‘deceptive’ security practices

The Federal Trade Commission announced a settlement with videoconferencing platform Zoom over “misleading claims” about its security. The agency said in a statement that when Zoom incorrectly claimed its video calls were protected by end-to-end encryption, the company engaged in “deceptive and unfair practices that undermined the security of its users.”

Zoom said in March that the phrase “end to end” was “in reference to the connection being encrypted from Zoom end point to Zoom end point,” that “content is not decrypted as it transfers across the Zoom cloud,” and that it only collected user data needed to improve its services.

But according to the FTC, Zoom had the cryptographic keys that could allow the company to access customers’ meetings. “Zoom’s misleading claims gave users a false sense of security, according to the FTC’s complaint, especially for those who used the company’s platform to discuss sensitive topics such as health
