Hacking Team breach: A 400GB corporate data dump and online mockery | CyberSecurity | Luxembourg

Hacking Team breach: A 400GB corporate data dump and online mockery | CyberSecurity | Luxembourg | Luxembourg (Europe) | Scoop.it
Over the weekend, hackers who remain unnamed posted a .torrent file linking to over 400GB of company data belonging to Hacking Team. The file, which contains emails, client lists, revenue reports, client history and marketing materials -- just to name some of the most interesting aspects -- appears to show Hacking Team has a healthy client list worldwide.

According to the data -- which has not been independently verified at the time of writing -- Hacking Team counts customers in countries including Italy, the US, Spain, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Luxembourg, Egypt, Oman, Panama, Turkey, the UAE, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Poland, Thailand, Denmark and Israel, among others.

«Digital4Education» préfigure l’école du futur | Luxembourg | EDUcation | eSkills | Digital CitiZENship | Luxembourg (Europe) | Scoop.it

L'Éducation nationale formera les futurs spécialistes dans les technologies de l'information et de la Communication. Dans le cadre de l'ICT Spring, le ministre de l'Éducation nationale, de l'enfance et de la jeunesse, Claude Meisch, a exposé les grands axes de la stratégie «Digital4education». Elle s'inscrit dans le cadre de l'initiative Digital Lëtzebuerg qui ambitionne de renforcer et de consolider la position du Grand-Duché dans le domaine des TIC.


La stratégie «Digital4education»vise à préparer les jeunes à vivre dans un environnement professionnel et privé en mutation constante. Elle amènera les élèves à développer des compétences indispensables dans l’utilisation des TIC et à promouvoir des projets pédagogiques utilisant l’école numérique. Cette stratégie digitale s’articule autour de cinq «dimensions» qui se déclinent en projets.


Dans le premier «digital citizen», l’école est censée initier les enfants à des applications clés qu’ils utiliseront dans leur vie d’adulte. Ils seront également sensibilisés aux questions de l’utilisation de leurs données personnelles sur les réseaux sociaux et de prévenir les risques. Le second nommé «digital peer» intègrera une dimension éthique et sociale. Les élèves aborderont la notion de sécurité sur Internet, le harcèlement moral sur les réseaux et une notion importante comme le droit à l’image.

Enseignement fondamental: stage d’insertion professionnelle et concours de recrutement adapté à partir de 2016

La réforme de la Fonction publique introduira l’obligation d’un stage d’insertion professionnelle de trois ans pour tous les nouveaux enseignants. À l’enseignement fondamental, où le stage d’insertion n’existe pas à l’heure actuelle, un stage de trois ans sera donc introduit pour tous les instituteurs. Avec cette introduction, le concours de recrutement à l’enseignement fondamental sera également adapté.

Le nouveau concours et le stage entreront en vigueur en 2016. En 2015, le système restera inchangé. Pour mieux permettre aux candidats de l’enseignement fondamental de se préparer à la session 2015 du concours de recrutement, les questionnaires des sessions 2013 et 2014 seront publiés sur le site internet du ministère.

À partir de 2016, le concours, qui prend actuellement la forme d’un examen-concours, sera transformé en simple concours. En d’autres termes, les  candidats qui se placeront en rang utile selon leurs résultats aux épreuves seront admis au stage pédagogique dans la limite des postes disponibles, indépendamment des notes obtenues.

STATEC: 60 Percent of Luxembourg Residents on Social Media | ICT | eLeadership | eSkills | Luxembourg (Europe) | Scoop.it

A recent report released by STATEC, the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies, on ICT in households and among individuals, has shown that the use of social media and the use of cloud technology, is on the rise– 60% of Luxembourg residents aged 16 to 74 used social media networks in 2014.


Luxembourg ranked third of the twenty-eight countries in the EU, in cloud technology use, with 37% of its residents aged between 16 and 74, using the online shared storage platform.  50% of those were young people, to 26% of 55 to 74-year olds.


A number of recurring themes were also revealed in the study. In 2014, 96% of households disposed of an internet connection - up six percentage points from 2010 and twenty-six from 2006 – making Luxembourg the European leader in that particular category. The computer remained the number one source of internet access (87%), with the smartp
