The German government has given the green light to the sale of RWE's oil and gas unit to a Russian-led consortium. Berlin doesn't expect supply disruptions following the sale, despite tensions with Moscow over Ukraine.

The German Economics Ministry said Friday it didn't object to the purchase of gas and oil subsidiary DEA by a group of investors led by Russian business tycoon Mikhail Fridman.
A senior ministry official, Stefan Kapferer, told news agency Reuters that Berlin didn't expect any disruptions in the supply of gas and oil in the wake of the deal.

In addition, a spokesman for the LetterOne investor consortium said it had received permission from Germany for the transaction to go ahead.

In March, the Luxemburg-based consortium announced it would offer to buy DEA, the oil and gas subsidiary of German utility giant RWE, for 5.1 billion euros ($6.9 billion). The deal has been criticized in Germany amid tensions between Russia and Western nations over the crisis in Ukraine.
Theoretically, the German government has the right to block any takeovers it thinks will threaten public safety and order. RWE, which has already received anti-trust approval from the EU, said it expected the transaction to be finished by the end of the year.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
