Global Fraud and Risk Report 2019/20 Mitigating business risk has always relied on knowledge of markets and counterparties, and of the forces that could disrupt a company’s agreements and assumptions. In the pre-digital, pre-global age, gaining such knowledge was made easier by implicit boundaries that governed the way most organizations conducted business. Suppliers, lenders and business partners were drawn from fairly well-established pools of referrals and contacts.

Former BlackBerry CEO Balsillie calls on IMF to set standards for data usage Jim Balsillie is warning that the rise of the data-driven global economy is increasing inequality by concentrating wealth in the hands of the few who control the technologies for gathering and processing it. And he says international trade deals – including the recently negotiated USMCA – make the problem worse by entrenching tougher intellectual-property protections and making it harder for governments to stop multinational corporations from collecting information on citizens. In a speech to the International Monetary Fund in Washington on Tuesday, Mr. Balsillie called on the organization to lead a “second Bretton Woods” that would set global standards for dealing with data. “The production economy of the 20th century created rising tides that lifted all boats,” the chair of the Centre for International Governance Innovation said, while by comparison, the growing IP and data-based economy “lifts mostly a few yachts.” Mr.
Fortnite World Cup: unexpected winners of the duo championship Players have flown from all over the world to compete at the first ever Fortnite World Cup, a large sporting event at New York's Arthur Ashe tennis stadium with $30 million in cash prizes. The epic tournament will determine this year's best Fortnite solo player Sunday and has already found this year's best duo team.

Fans and announcers were stunned late Saturday when Aqua and Nyhrox, two underdogs, beat out 49 other teams, many from larger, more funded organizations.
10 predictions for smart city priorities in 2020 IoT projects will slow down and cities will have to decide if 5G is best for vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, IDC says. Over the next decade of smart cities work, there will be fewer IoT projects, more citizen input, and more communication between cars and infrastructure, according to the smart cities team at IDC. City leaders will build digital trust in new technology by setting clear data-use policies as the first step in the technology procurement process.
