Poland to #adopt #national #cyber-security act

Polish Ministry of Digitisation has published a draft Act on a national cyber-security system, reported Telko.in. The main purpose of the act will be the establishment of a central information system on cyber-security incidents and prevention thereof. Telecommunications operators will be part of the system and will have additional obligations as so-called key service operators, including IP traffic exchange operators (IXs) and DNS service providers.

The obligations will incur additional costs for internal resources. Every two years, the operators will be subject to a security audit. Some of the obligations may be outsourced. For breach of obligations, operators will face penalties ranging from PLN 1,000 to PLN 100,000.

The cyber-security information system will be established by 2021. The costs of the national cyber-security system over ten years are estimated at PLN 210 million.

The draft assumes distributed control over the system by the Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT), to be affiliated at the Ministry of Defence, Scientific and Academic Computer Network NASK and the Internal Security Agency.

U.S. credit card firms ought to adopt biometrics over PIN, says Michigan senator

U.S. credit card firms ought to adopt biometrics in order to surpass the security standards of their European counterparts rather than simply catching up, according to a report by Fedscoop. Peters’ remarks come at a time when the chip-embedded credit cards rolling out in the U.S. fall short of the security features of credit cards in Europe. “Chip and signature [cards] … are actually behind where the Europeans and others [are], and we’ll probably leapfrog over that technology very rapidly to get into biometrics and other kinds of security measures,” said Michigan Senator Peters, who co-founded the Senate Payments Innovation Caucus earlier this year. Credit card firms in the U.S. have only recently been swapping out the old magnetic strip cards with new microchip-embedded cards, which creates a unique code for every transaction, ensuring that they are less susceptible to fraud. European credit card firms have been using this same chip technology for years. However, American chip cards simply require a signature for user verification, unlike European chip cards which opt for the more secure PIN system for authorization. Many retailers argue that chip and signature cards only partially protect consumers from fraud attacks and fail to offer any protection […]
