Award-winning Portuguese hacker uncovers dangers for small and medium businesses



Pedro Ribeiro, Portuguese hacker, international champion., will talk at the PME + Digital event about the dangers that small and medium-sized companies face at a time when computer attacks are part of everyday business. The initiative is hosted by Konica Minolta on October 18 and will be broadcast on LinkedIn company.

Cyber ​​attacks are not limited to large companies, which can put SMEs in a vulnerable position if they do not take preventive and digital security measures. This is a starting point for a multi-expert exchange on cybersecurity issues and the importance of the digital transition for small and medium enterprises.

Cyber ​​attacks in Portugal increased by 81 percent in 2021 (Check Point Research, 2021), highlighting the importance of SMEs (99 percent of the Portuguese business community) being vigilant and taking preventive measures.

European research shows the importance that entrepreneurs place on the digital transformation of their business: 53% of companies believe they have made some progress in digital transformation, but there is still more to be done (European Digital Transformation Analysis prepared for KMBS Europe 2021) e 30% of companies say one of the biggest challenges in IT is keeping up with new technologies (European Digital Transformation Analysis prepared for KMBS Europe, country: Portugal, November 2021).

Cybersecurity is the central theme of SME+Digital, but it won’t be the only one. Demystifying digital transformation processes, which are also available to SMEs and not just large companies, is another important challenge.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
