Serco: Reevaluate Israel
Ed note: All these influential policymakers, parliamentarians, business leaders, technologists, start-ups (private equity investment), charities, academics, media, small companies and large corporations use technology and the internet including smart phones, something Rupert Soames has neglected to mention. Contrary to what Rupert Soames has stated in his letter, the private sector does not need “political permission” to do anything. It does what it wants to unconstrained.
All of these people in these organizations, both private and public use smart phones. The top selling smart phone in the UK was an all-Apple affair for the year 2018. The iPhone 7 is still the most popular smartphone in the UK. The Samsung Galaxy S8 improved in usage slightly in the UK. Overall, smart phone sales in the UK had a steady rise in the use of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X being the latest interesting development. Google mail: “You’ve been hacked”. Rupert Soames, what smart phone do you use? Is there a “parasite” inside your smart phone? Is there a “parasite” inside the UK Parliament’s computer systems and databases?
Serco re-launches Serco Institute to undertake research and innovation within public services internationally
Published: 10 Dec 2018
Serco Group plc, the international service company, is launching its newly re-established think-tank, the Serco Institute, to develop research, insight, and innovation in the UK and internationally to create the next generation of solutions for public services.
The Institute, which was first founded in 2002 but has been dormant in recent years, was re-launched today at a conference in London hosted jointly with the think-tank Reform. The conference, entitled ‘Reimagining public services for citizens’, included debates on the future use of data, digital and new models in public services, and was attended by a range of informed and influential policymakers, parliamentarians, business leaders, technologists, start-ups, charities, academics and media.
Governments worldwide are facing increasing costs, demand and deficits, coupled with populations who are resistant to higher taxation and demanding enhanced experience and public service outcomes. The Serco Institute will engage experts from across the public, private and charitable sectors to develop research that will help further understanding of the best public services internationally, as well as develop innovations in the design of public services and entirely new approached to service delivery.
Rupert Soames, Group Chief Executive of Serco Group, speaking at the re-launch of the Serco Institute, said:
“The purpose of the Institute is to be a forum where academics, civil servants, practitioners, companies small, medium and large, including our competitors, both in this country and abroad, can contribute their ideas. It recognises that developing improved ways of delivering public services is not simply a matter of process design, it requires BOTH an intellectual underpinning and also a base of facts and experience. One of the great failures of my industry has been to forget that on the tin marked ‘Public Services’, it does not say ‘made by the private sector’; we have forgotten that the private sector needs political permission to operate in this space. We have forgotten that the reason why private companies came to deliver public services in the 1980’s was because serious people thought it would improve the delivery of public services, and they believed this because serious academics and economists and industrialists persuaded them that it was so.”

Ed note: Saudi Aramco is the world’s largest oil cartel with profits during the first six months of 2017 alone amounting to $33.8 billion. Considering Serco’s new carbon measurement system being put in place, we’ve decided to go shopping for a few diesel electric generators to power up our systems in the event the electric power goes down losing our internet connection. We will be running Aramco-refined diesel fuel in our diesel engines hoping to parcel out additional Serco countable carbon emissions. We haven’t decided on whether to go with Aggreko diesel generators or not.
We noticed UK market regulators are pushing ahead with plans to loosen rules around the listing of sovereign-controlled companies like Saudi Aramco. The City of London is bolstering efforts to attract the possible foreign IPO of the state energy giant Saudi Aramco. If the City of London shuts down they may want to consider a few diesel engines of their own to generate your electricity to keep that IPO deal for Saudi Aramco going. We understand Britain seeks to keep the City of London open after Brexit. Rupert Soames, good luck with Brexit and recolonizing the world, and before we forget, hope Aggreko is making plans to curb production on their carbon-emitting diesel electric generators.
Top Secret Israeli Cyberattack Firm, Revealed
Candiru, named after an Amazon fish known to parasitize the human urethra, recruits heavily from Unit 8200 intelligence unit and sells offensive tools for hacking computer systems
by Amitai Ziv • January 4, 2018
If you enter the lobby of the Tel Aviv building that acts as its headquarters, you won’t find its name in the directory. You also won’t find a website for it because it doesn’t have one. Its 120 or so employees don’t post profiles on LinkedIn and sign strict confidentiality agreements. Inquiries by TheMarker elicited a polite but firm “no comment.”
The company is known as Candiru, named after an Amazon fish known for its alleged tendency to invade and parasitize the human urethra. The name fits the company’s business, which is offensive cyber, the technology used to hack into computers or smartphones and spy on users.
Offensive cyber is a big business in Israel, with industry sources saying it generates about $1 billion in sales a year. The biggest and most controversial of the players is NSO, which has been cited repeatedly for selling its equipment to countries like Saudi Arabia and Mexico that have used them to spy and crack down on dissidents.
NSO’s specialty is hacking smartphones. Candiru’s hacking tools are used to break into computers and servers, although some sources told TheMarker that it also has technology for breaking into mobile devices as well.

Ed note: First create terrorism on a global scale then have the “security” solution in place. These two articles need to be evaluated to see how Israel’s Unit 8200 penetrated Australia’s military intelligence as Israel positions itself as the world’s go to source for cybersecurity. When Serco goes through their “reevaluation”, will Serco also include a reevaluation of how they will protect both private and public infrastructure? What appears to be happening is that “intelligence” branches/agencies are breaking away from national governments and forming an international intelligence network.
