• US FMCSA Proposes Changes to Hours-of-Service Rule (08/15/19)
    The US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced yesterday in a press release that it is proposing several changes to the hours-of-service rule. The intent is to allow more flexibility for drivers getting more rest and finding parking while maintaining appropriate regulation for driver and public safety. In 2018, FMCSA put out a public notice inviting comment regarding this rule and received more than 5,200 comments. The current proposal offers five key revisions involving the 30 minute break rule, the sleeper-berth exception, the adverse driving conditions exception and the short haul exception.

  • Potential Wiper Attacks From Iran (06/27/19)
    Data Breach Today reported this week that “Iran is increasing its malicious cyber activity against the U.S, which could manifest in ‘wiper’ (malware) attacks that render computers unusable” (according to a top U.S. cybersecurity official). In 2012, Saudi Aramco (oil giant) experienced a vicious wiper attack that disabled tens of thousands of workstations. Shipping in the region also appears to be threatened as earlier in June, “the U.S. accused Iran of planting magnetic mines that damaged commercial Japanese and Norwegian shipping vessels sailing in the Persian Gulf.” Christopher Krebs of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recommended that U.S. institutions increase their basic cybersecurity defenses.
