Austrian roundup: VBV, Valida Consulting

first_imgAustria’s €2bn Vorsorgekasse VBV has announced plans to reform its fee structure from next year, rewarding people who leave their money in the system for a longer period.Under the new structure, members will pay 1.9% in fees for the first five years, 1.4% after that and, from the tenth year onwards, 1%.“This is the legal minimum for fees in Vorsorgekassen,” VBV said.One of VBV’s competitors, the €1.45bn Valida Plus Vorsorgekasse, told IPE it would lower its own fees from 1.9% to 1.5% from January 2017 for all members – regardless of how long they have been contributing to the Vorsorgekasse. Since the implementation of these severance pay funds in 2003, Austrian companies have been required to make contributions for each employee amounting to 3.5% of salary.Employees can then take the money out after three years with the company.Because the system is not officially designed as retirement provision, many people do take out the money or leave it dispersed over various Vorsorgekassen after changing jobs.To date, the 10 Vorsorgekassen on the market have collected more than €6.5bn in assets.But, in order to gain new assets, the funds must convince companies to change providers.Last year, Valida Plus managed to gain the major Austrian retailer Spar, with 22,000 employees, as a new client.In other news, Valida Consulting has taken on the administration of the supplementary pension plan of Austrian Public Accountants (Wirtschaftstreuhänder).The pension plan of undisclosed size, to which all members of the Chamber have to make contributions, had re-tendered the administration mandate.The previous admin company was Concisa , a subsidiary of the Bonus Pensionskasse.last_img read more

macOS Mojave Security Flaw Discovered What to Do

first_imgThere’s already a vulnerability in Apple’s newest operating system. Security researcher Patrick Wardle recently told Bleeping Computer that he was able to bypass privacy protections in the new macOS Mojave to reach sensitive user data. MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

And this attack doesn’t affect hardware, so Wardle can’t use it to get into your webcam.MORE: Top 11 macOS Mojave FeaturesTo access the information, Wardle used an unauthorized app to copy his address book to the desktop. The process takes only a minute. However, we don’t yet know the exact details of what Wardle has done. He’ll be presenting them at the upcoming Mac Security Conference he is organizing in November. Until then, we won’t know exactly how to protect your data from programs like this. In the meantime, however, you can select and pre-authorize only certain apps to access sensitive data. To do this, go to System Preferences > Security and Privacy. You should also be very careful about who you allow to access your computer, and about downloading and running programs you aren’t familiar with. macOS Mojave: Full ReviewHow to Use macOS Mojave’s Dark ModeHow to Use Stacks in macOS Mojave by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf you’re over 40 – this game is a must!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoForbes.comCrazy Rich Asians for RealForbes.comUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more
