© AFP 2019 / TT NEWS AGENCY / PONTUS LUNDAHLPensioners Bicker as Sweden is Set to Become World's First Cashless SocietyToday's Sweden is on the cutting edge when it comes to electronic payment solutions. At present, Swedish National Bank (Riksbank) is poised to become the first major bank to emit a national digital currency. Whereas the e-krona will hardly supplant traditional currency in the nearest future, it may nevertheless become a longed-for supplement for one of the world's most digitalized nations. "The fewer of us Swedes use bank notes and coins, the clearer it becomes that the Riksbank needs to investigate whether we should issue electronic money as a complement to the money we have today," Riksbank deputy governor Cecilia Skingsley told Swedish Radio.

(Reuters) - In 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau faced a pivotal choice in its plan to digitize the nation’s once-a-decade population count: build a system for collecting and processing data in-house, or buy one from an outside contractor. The bureau chose Pegasystems Inc, reasoning that outsourcing would be cheaper and more effective. Three years later, the project faces serious reliability and security problems, according to Reuters interviews with six technology professionals currently or formerly involved in the census digitization effort. And its projected cost has doubled to $167 million — about $40 million more than the bureau’s 2016 cost projection for building the site in-house. The Pega-built website was hacked from IP addresses in Russia during 2018 testing of census systems, according to two security sources with direct knowledge of the incident. One of the sources said an intruder bypassed a “firewall” and accessed parts of the system that … [Read more...] about Special Report: 2020 U.S. census plagued by hacking threats, cost overruns
