Let’s take a look at what’s going on in ‘The World Now’.

Five million. That’s the number of cyber attacks the Taiwanese government face on a daily basis,… with around half of them believed to be from China.
This according to cyber security department director Chien Hung-wei speaking to parliament on Wednesday,… who said the government is strengthening defensive measures and collecting relevant data for analysis in a bid to stop the attacks where initiated.
Taiwan has also accused China of ramping up cyber attacks since the 2016 election of President Tsai Ing-wen,.., who has long been vocal about her views on the island as a sovereign nation.
The latest comments come as Taiwan’s defense ministry warned that China has been “vigorously enhancing” its cyber warfare capabilities,… as part of its plan to bring the island to heel.
The ministry added that its information security and protection center detected and handled roughly 1-point-4 billion “anomalies” from 2019 to August 2021.

After marking one of the biggest U.S. initial public offerings of nearly 12 billion US dollars,… Amazon-backed electric vehicle maker Rivian Automotive made its highly anticipated Nasdaq debut on Wednesday.
With the EV market witnessing a massive surge in demand globally,… Wall Street’s biggest institutional investors are betting on Rivian to be the next big player in a sector long dominated by Tesla.
With its U.S. stock exchange debut ,… Rivian now plans to build at least one million vehicles annually by the end of the decade.
The company was founded in 2009,… and has been investing heavily to ramp up production,… doubling down on its upscale all-electric pickup truck,… which was launched in September.
Rivian’s stock prices started at 78 US dollars a share,… and soared to as high as 119-dollars-and-46 cents,… before settling near one hundred dollars.

Widely known as the ‘Banksy of the NFT world’,… Beeple’s 3-D video sculpture titled ‘Human One’ sold for 28-point-9 million US dollars to an online bidder in Switzerland,… at a live Christie’s auction in New York on Tuesday.
The more than 7-foot high sculpture features dystopian imagery that is accessed through the Ethereum blockchain,… as it crossed the 25 million dollar mark in just over 3 minutes.
The final selling price was also nearly double the estimate price of 15 million dollars.
However,… unlike Banksy… Beeple’s identity is known,… as creator Mike Winkelmann called the NFT,… “the first portrait of a human born in the metaverse”.
The digital artist earlier sold his work “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” for 69 million dollars in March.

One thought on “World News: Taiwan government faces 5 million cyber attacks daily: official”
  1. Taiwan has been independent since 1951 when Japan officially ceded Taiwan to the current government of Taiwan in the Treaty of Taipei. Prior to the Treaty of Taipei, Taiwan was a protectorate of the US after Japan surrender to the US in 1945. And prior to 1945, Taiwan was a colony of the Japanese empire.
