UK #Citizens In #Danger Of #Identity Theft Due To #Negligence Towards #Cyber Security

Source: National Cyber Security News

A recent survey has found that 52% of Britons aged 18-25 are using the same password for many online services, increasing the likelihood of identity theft. It was also found that the majority had sent critical data such as bank details or passport copies and driving licences via messaging systems. Javvad Malik, Security Advocate at AlienVault commented below.

“Security training or raising awareness of best practices shouldn’t be limited to just corporate employees, rather should extend to all members of the public starting from schools.

It is important that the dangers and risks are understood by all in order to change behaviours.

On the flip side, service providers have their part to play by designing user interface in ways to encourage better security behaviour, for example, making two-factor authentication readily available and easy to understand, as well as having internal monitoring controls to detect where fraudulent or suspicious activity is taking place.”

A fight against child pornography or control over the citizens?

The Moldovan government’s initiative to toughen control over the Internet and private online communication (the theme that has recently become particularly topical in Georgia, too), has stirred fierce debates in public.

The matter concerns the bill that is popularly referred to as the ‘Big Brother’ Law’. The latter vests the investigative agencies with the right to block websites, monitor personal emails, SMS, as well as Viber and WhatsApp messages – and all those measures aim to ensure efficient fight against child pornography and terrorism.

Official Chișinău is looking forward to the Venice Commission’s final conclusion on the aforesaid bill.

However, the experts ring the alarm bells, claiming that the bill is nothing but an attempt to impose censorship on the Internet.

British citizens found a loophole to get the new iPhone 6 for only £1

If you live in the UK and want the brand new iPhone 6, then this may be the most exciting article you’ll ever read. Here’s the deal: (NASDAQ: AAPL) is giving away brand new 64 GB iPhone 6’s to UK citizens for only £1. Yes you read that right – 1 pound. As part of a special promotion, they are working with its trusted distribution partner,RockyFroggy for giving away iPhone 6’s that cost 99% off regular retail price. Why are they offering this crazy promotion? Director of Marketing, Joel Branson explains, “Last year, UK market shares dropped to 35% and is losing to Android worldwide. They can recapture British users by giving away extremely low-priced iPhones to people and convert them into repeating customers who will spread the word to their friends”. Sounds too good to be true? That’s what 29 year-old Thomas Davies of Birmingham thought too. He decided to give it a shot and received his iPhone 6 in the mail a couple of days later. Thomas explains, “At first, I thought this was just another internet scam, but then I did some research and saw that RockyFroggy is a legitmate promotions company and partner. I decided to […]

Facebook acted like the US’s National Security Agency, spying without authority on European users, lawyers representing the Belgian data protection authority said on Monday. In opening arguments in a closely watched case being brought against the social network company, Frederic Debussere, representing the Belgian privacy commission (BPC), referred to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s revelationsabout surreptitious mass surveillance by the spy agency. “When it became known that the NSA was spying on people all around the world, everybody was upset. This actor [Facebook] is doing the very same thing, albeit in a different way,” he said. The BPC brought a lawsuit against Facebook after accusing it of “trampling” over Belgian and European privacy law. In a report and an opinion the BPC detailed Facebook’s alleged breaches, including the tracking of non-users and logged-out Facebook users for advertising purposes. The BPC is threatening Facebook with fine of €250,000 ($280,213) a day for failing to respond to its demands. Cookie use in dispute Facebook has repeatedly denied the claims, saying that the data and conclusions in the BPC’s Facebook privacy report are false. A Facebook spokesperson said: “We will show the court how this technology protects people from spam, malware, and other attacks, […]
