Woman #accused in #multiple #identity thefts looks to clear her #name

The suspect in a massive ID theft case from 2013 wants to clear up any confusion about the status of her involvement in the case.

“I just really wanted, you know, my side to be heard,” Pia Sims said

Nearly five years ago, Memphis police accused Sims of stealing the identities of 672 people.

Investigators said they found nearly $50,000 in cash in Sim’s car, along with boxes of tax documents, social security cards and IDs.

Sims called WMC Action News 5 on Thursday, March 15 to set the record straight.

She said she was never convicted of any crime in that case, and the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office confirms Sims was never indicted.

“I have no reason to steal anybody’s identity,” Sims said. “I would help anybody, not hurt them.”

But local business owner Anthony Elmore begs to differ. He said Sims hired him in January to install carpeting in her Orange Mound tax business 5 Star Taxes on Park Avenue.

Elmore said Sims refuses to pay him for his work.

“The sister girl ain’t paid nothing,” Elmore said. “Zonk. Zero. Negative.”

Sim’s side of the story is that the carpet install was shoddy and that her business partner, not her, hired Elmore.

EU looks to #blockchain to solve #cybersecurity problems while #easing #communication of #sensitive #data

Source: National Cyber Security News

The European Commission is to explore broader EU-level uses of blockchain beyond its original role in the oversight of cryptocurrencies, and is looking at the potential of the secure records management software to handle sensitive data passing between member states more efficiently and securely.

“In the next [EU budget], we would like to possibly make investments in areas like VAT reporting, chemicals registration, climate data and others,” said Pēteris Zilgalvis, head of unit for start-ups and innovation in the digital single market directorate. “You could have cross-border shared information in a digital ledger for those that need to know.”

Zilgalvis’ comments at a seminar in Brussels on Tuesday follow an announcement by the EU last week that it was establishing a forum to study the technology.

“It’s a breakthrough technology of great interest. But we don’t believe the hype, we’re taking a critical view of where it can be used,” Zilgalvis told an audience gathered by the Brussels-based think tank Bruegel.

Announcing plans for the forum last week, digital commissioner Mariya Gabriel said the EU wants to be at the forefront of the wider application of blockchain. “We have been funding blockchain projects since 2013.

Justice Department looks to sharpen computer crime law

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

WASHINGTON — Stung by recent court decisions that have gone against them, Justice Department lawyers are making a fresh push to clarify a computer trespass law that critics malign as overly broad. The 1986 law, known as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, was intended to punish hackers who breach someone else’s computer network and steal information from it. But federal prosecutors have struggled at times in applying it to people who have permission to access a computer — a police department database, for instance, or a corporate network — but abuse that right by using for purposes that have not been authorized. The concerns attracted attention this year after President Barack Obama suggested changes to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act as part of a broader proposal. The Justice Department has appealed to Congress, which is expected to take up other cybersecurity measures in coming weeks. “These are really hard issues of what should the law cover and what should it not cover,” said George Washington University law professor Orin Kerr. “It’s totally understandable that we’re having this discussion and not sure what the answer should be, because this is a new kind of technological problem.” Critics, including judges, […]

After 19 Kids, TLC looks ahead to shows with ‘heart’

Perhaps no other network exemplifies the perils and profits of embracing reality-TV programming than TLC. Formerly known as The Learning Channel, TLC has, in recent years, gained huge audiences — and criticism — for reality shows, such as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and 19 Kids and Counting.

But as TLC has been reeling from scandal, most notably the revelation that 19 Kids star Josh Duggar molested his sisters, which prompted advertisers to flee, the network is stressing a new message. “Our shows need to have an element of OMG, but have to deliver on the heart,” Nancy Daniels, general manager of the channel since 2013, told Fortune in a recent interview.

Longview looks for answers after sixth shooting death

Police identified the Longview man fatally shot Tuesday in the sixth fatal shooting this year in Longview.

Da’Coreyan Blankenship, 21, was the latest in a string of homicides since January.

“Every time you hear this or see this, you cringe,” Longview Mayor Jay Dean said. “We have really got to look at exactly what we are doing to curb this violence.”

The year started with violence when Philander Carlton Peters, 48, was killed Jan. 13 at a house in the 1600 block of Hawthorne Street. There is no suspect, and the case is still under investigation.

Three days later Omar Hernandez, 22, was shot dead at a house in the 500 block of Jones Street.
