Facebook threatens to stop operations in EU

Facebook threatens to stop operations in EU: Not so sure I’d understand it as a threat, if Facebook ceased operations in Europe. Me personally would’ve kicked the information sucking service and timesink to the youth out a while ago. Latest, when it became clear that Facebook is a pool of hatespeak, that nobody can or wants to control, the time should’ve been over.

However, that’s exactly what they threaten the European Union with. The debate and negotiation started over the ability to transfer personal identifiable information over the Atlantic, to the US.

Most likely, I’d suspect, EU regulators will fall for the attack and back down.

GAIA-X takes next steps

Der Mitteilung des Bundesministerium f├╝r Wirtschaft und Energie (BMWi) zu Folge haben heute je 11 deutsche und franz├Âsische Gr├╝ndungsmitglieder die notariellen Unterlagen zur Gr├╝ndung einer “Association internationale sans but lucratif“, kurz AISBL, unterzeichnet. Es handelt sich dabei um eine “Vereinigung ohne Gewinnerzielungsabsicht”, einer belgischen Gesellschaftsform, die dem deutschen gemeinn├╝tzigen Verein vergleichbar ist. Sitz der Vereinigung wird Br├╝ssel sein.

Die juristische Geburt des Konzeptes GAIA-X stellt einen gro├čen Schritt nach vorne f├╝r europ├Ąische Dateninfrastruktur dar.

49 suspected members of cybercriminal group arrested in Europe

Don’t really want to have a category called “cyber”, but some of the headlines ask for it. The arrested persons are suspected of committing financial fraud through email scamming. That qualifies as “cyber”.
