Does cyber insurance make us more (or less) secure?. #CyberSecurity #infosec #cyberinsurance #databreach #business #data #dataprotection #personaldata #privacy #internet #web #online #digital #tech #technology #cyberattack #cybercrime #fraud #cyberrisk #risk https://buff.ly/2JVlvxH "Underwriting cyber risk remains more art than science, but in the absence of regulation, cyber insurance might still be the best hope for improving cybersecurity practices across the board — at least for now."

#Repost @design_academy_eindhoven ・・・ "Databall_" by @felixmollinga This project in #manandactivity is a game to teach kids about the value of personal data. It is a physical visualization of data flow, in the form of a two-player, augmented reality pinball machine. It explains what personal data is, how it moves about and who is involved; and makes sending and stealing data a tangible experience. Interested in being a DAE student as well?

Despite advancements training and fears of breaches, employees still practice bad cyber hygiene, study. #CyberSecurity #infosec #cyberawareness #databreach #business #data #dataprotection #personaldata #privacy #internet #web #online #digital #tech #technology #cyberattack #cybercrime #fraud #cyberrisk #risk https://buff.ly/2LWhWIn "OpenVPN surveyed 500 U.S. full-time employees about their cybersecurity habits to pinpoint areas of weakness that could potentially harm their organization and found 25 percent of them reuse the same password for everything while 23 percent admit to very frequently clicking on links before verifying they lead to a website they intended to visit. Regardless of the advancements in cybersecurity training researchers found employees are by and large creating passwords they can easily remember, resulting in weak security that hackers can bypass with brute force attacks."

Gloucestershire Police BCC Error Leads to £80K Fine. #CyberSecurity #infosec #databreach #UK #data #dataprotection #personaldata #privacy #internet #web #online #digital #tech #technology #cyberrisk #risk https://buff.ly/2t0qIOv "Gloucestershire Police has been fined £80,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) after sending a bulk email in error which revealed the names of child abuse victims to strangers. Two years ago, an officer sent an update on an ongoing case of historic child abuse to 56 recipients, but forgot to BCC them, meaning their names were exposed to the other recipients. This meant that each recipient – which the ICO says “potentially included victims, witnesses, lawyers and journalists” – could see the full email address and name of the others on the same email."

#Facebook has been taking criticism for its latest scandal involving the misuse of #personaldata with #CambridgeAnalytica . According to Digital Trends, here are some ways to protect personal data on Facebook without deleting the entire account. The first step is to remove Facebook from connected apps, basically disabling the platform so third-party #apps can not access your account or #information . Next, users can adjust the amount of data #friends and #family take with them to other apps, such as #birthdate , #education , #employment and #relationships . The third alternative is to shut off Facebook's data collection for advertisements. This includes #website and apps use and adds coupled with social actions. #uae #sharjah #sharjah24 #الإمارات #الشارقة #الشارقة24
NCC Group: Only a Quarter of Our Reported Flaws Were Fixed. #CyberSecurity #infosec #data #dataprotection #personaldata #privacy #internet #web #online #digital #tech #technology #cyberattack #cybercrime #fraud #cyberrisk #risk #vulnerability #vendor https://buff.ly/2HRoW6N "NCC Group analyzed nine years of vulnerabilities discovered by its team and found that only 26%, or 289, were classed as “closed,” meaning they were fixed or dismissed once the risk was accepted by the vendor. NCC Group complained that too often vendors lack a clear point of contact for researchers to communicate with when they find a flaw, lengthening the delay. Sometimes out of desperation, researchers are even forced to contact the vendor’s social media team in order to find a secure communication channel, it added."

Everything is a transaction. Every interaction is becoming a transaction as new kinds of value - such as personal data, (access) rights, obligations, attention and reputation - form the basis of new business models. Your data and what you can do with it is becoming more valuable every day. Companies are coming up with new ways to use, but also to protect that data just like you would keep gold in a safe place. Attention and reputation are especially new ground. For instance this Instagram post caught your attention and the photos and text on this account say something about the reputation of #INNOPAY and our #consultantsintransactions . These things used to be more offline, but right now everything online provides a reference to who you are and what you are about! And that set of information is only getting bigger and more important.

Drive Change By Assuming You've Been Breached. #CyberSecurity #infosec #databreach #business #data #dataprotection #personaldata #privacy #internet #web #online #digital #tech #technology #cyberattack #cybercrime #fraud #cyberrisk #risk #riskmanagement https://buff.ly/2t8vton "What happens when we just assume that we’ve already been breached? The name of the information security game is not risk elimination -- it’s risk management. Given enough time, and the right circumstances, a breach will occur and we’ll be faced with the need for a response. When a breach occurs, what do we have to defend ourselves? We’re not talking about defense from the traditional attacker -- the damage is already done. We’re talking about the defense against the new attackers knocking at the gate after a breach: regulators, state attorney generals, lawyers leading lawsuits against us and our customers who are angry with us. What do we have to defend ourselves against the post-breach attackers? What makes us defensible?"

PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFO • https://knightsight.blog/protecting-your-online-privacy/ • Today we are living in a world where social networks are popping up all around us. In the early 2000’s, MySpace, Xanga and LinkedIn led us into the social networking age, and then within 7 years Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Tumblr, PhotoBucket, Spotify, FourSquare, and Pinterest had entered the scene. Today Facebook has over 2 billion members and even our most basic of web applications have a built-in social networking component to try to build community. As more of our lifestyle becomes integrated with the internet, social networking will only continue to grow more prevalent – and with it, the risk of losing privacy. I will explain to you how you can protect your online privacy and have a peace-of-mind. • • #security #socialmedia #privacy #personaldata #personalinformation #protection

Employee-owned devices also make it difficult to prevent data leakage, block unauthorized devices from the company network, and separate usage for work and usage for personal business."

Digital signatures are a core security function for all modern operating systems. The cryptographically generated signatures make it possible for users to know with complete certainty that an app was digitally signed with the private key of a trusted party. But, according to the researchers, the mechanism many macOS security tools have used since 2007 to check digital signatures has been trivial to bypass. As a result, it has been possible for anyone to pass off malicious code as an app that was signed with the key Apple uses to sign its apps."
