By Dustin Volz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Companies based in Brazil scored “significantly poorer” in aggregate on a variety of cyber security indicators than those based in other major world economies, such as the United States and China, according to a report released on Thursday. The study, from Massachusetts-based security ratings company BitSight, found that Brazilian companies underperformed on metrics such as machine compromise rates, email security and file-sharing practices in an analysis conducted over the past year. "Brazil has significantly poorer performance than the other countries included in the study," the study said.
LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's government said on Thursday it had launched a consultation to overhaul the deficit-laden British Steel Pension Scheme, a major stumbling block for potential buyers of Tata Steel's UK assets. "The consultation includes a full range of options that consider whether and how the scheme could be separated from the existing sponsoring employer and whether it will be necessary to reduce the benefits within the scheme," pensions minister Stephen Crabb said in a written statement to parliament.
