Hampstead residents urged to be vigilant against identity theft

The Town of Hampstead posted an advisory urging residents to prevent and report instances of identity theft and identity fraud. The advisory comes after town public security officers alerted Montreal police to a case of alleged identity theft. On Oct. 28, the officers saw an 18-year-old man who was loitering intentionally drop what turned out to be a false permit with a Hampstead address. Councillor Harvey Shafer said the 18-year-old man allegedly belonged to a street gang specializing in credit card theft and fraud. “These individuals steal credit cards, order merchandise online and give a fictitious address to pick up the orders,” Shaffer recently read in the November public security report.

Companies urged to protect against cyber security after Norwich Airport hack raised in parliament

Home office minister Mike Penning said companies which hold the personal data of individuals has a responsibility to protect it, after he was questioned on the issue by Norwich MP Chloe Smith. She told the House of Commons: “Norwich Airport in my constituency suffered a minor cyber attack on its website last week. Will the minister join me in first of all encouraging business to check they defences, and secondly will he redouble his efforts to be sure we are safe from cyber terrorism in light of the callous attacks on which we are all agreed.” To which Mr Penning replied: “We have a personal responsibility, but so do companies. We are working very closely with banks in particularly, but all companies are responsibility for protecting the data they hold, particularly personal data of individuals.” Bosses at Norwich airport confirmed they have been the victims of a cyber-attack – but insisted security was not compromised.
