“Harley-Davidson’s had a challenging quarter in its core US market”

HarleyD

Emmanuel Tahar, Chief Executive of Third Bridge, comments on Harley-Davidson’s second quarter results:

“Harley-Davidson’s had a challenging quarter in its core US market. Our surveys have shown that dealer sentiment on new motorcycle sales has taken a more negative turn since the start of the year. Nevertheless, the majority of respondents still share a positive outlook for the brand and believe it retains its leading position in the market today – although it continues to fight off a threat from Polaris’ Indian motorcycles. But Harley have a loyal customer base, and the popularity and attendance of HOG’s Rider Academy for first time riders is potentially a bright spot for the future.”

Highway? No way! UK Drivers Don’t Know Road Signs

The experiment shows Tracey, aged 45, and Lester, aged 51, failing a road quiz quite spectacularly. ingenie suggests that road safety knowledge, including hazard perception, could be significantly improved if introduced at an earlier age.

NTO announcement on fraud and computer misuse

cyberwarfare

This report is in line with similar reports from other bodies and it almost certainly grossly underestimates the scale of the problem, for the simple reason that computer crime, like many other crimes, is greatly under-reported. Some security specialists have suggested the reported crime is less than 20% of the actual crime and that the conviction rates for reported crime are less than 20%. Under-reporting is largely due to many attacks either going undetected, or not being considered worth reporting, but some significant attacks on large companies, like banks, are not reported, but covered up from fear that publicity would destroy confidence of customers. This is a huge problem, largely neglected by politicians and avoided by the computer and communications industry. Fire Project Managing Editor

Dave Webber, Commercial Strategy Director at LexisNexis® Risk Solutions UK, comments on the news that there were 3.8 million fraud and 2 million computer misuse cases reported in the UK in the year end to March, according to The Office of National Statistics.
