Cybersecurity is ad hoc at best and severely lacking at worst, according to EYs latest report on mining firms. 97% of mining companies admit to being unprepared for the digital future despite more than half experiencing a significant cybersecurity incident last year. Do mining companies need to wake up? We find out what more needs to be done.

And in other tech news, we examine the impact of Volvo Construction Equipment partnering with mobile operator Telia to pilot 5G mobile for industrial applications.

Elsewhere, we assess the potential impact of softening US-North Korea relations and the reserves it could open up, and find out which critical minerals the US is investing in. Plus, we ask whether sand mining contributed to the Hurricane Harvey floods, and with 2017 declared the best year yet for mining by PwC, we look at the record revenues to see how they could inform future decision-making.
