The truth about police use of LPRs: What citizens need to know

License plate readers have been an increasingly useful device for law enforcement in the investigation of crimes ranging from auto theft to rape to murder. Perhaps as a consequence of that success, groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have put LPRs in their crosshairs, pressing for legislation at the state, local, and federal level, which may soon endanger the future of LPRs. In essence, these groups are linking citizens’ privacy fears, driven by the Edward Snowden and National Security Agency (NSA) matter, with photographs of license plates that are required by law to be publicly displayed. As these groups gain momentum, industry experts have begun to educate the public that such arguments against LPRs are like comparing apples to oranges. “We all need to fully understand the facts about LPRs and be able to discuss how it works. This technology is not used for dark and nefarious reasons and it does not infiltrate the private lives of everyday citizens,” said Brian Shockley, Vice President of Marketing of Vigilant Solutions. What LPR Technology Is (and What It Isn’t)  Shockley told PoliceOne that arguments against the use of LPRs are “perverting the truth and […]

What Apple Is Missing About Cyber Security

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook attended a cyber security conference sponsored by the White House, in which he signed up for a framework to share information on cyber threats between companies. However, in an impassioned speech, he made the case for not violating user privacy even to protect national security, and staunchly refused to share information with the U.S. government. Apple has also made it virtually impossible for law enforcement to obtain data from its devices even with a valid court order. While it’s easy to applaud Cook’s stance, especially after the NSA debacle, and the CEO is known for his personal commitment to privacy protection, there’s also a problem with his view: namely, it ignores a basic truth about the threat faced by Americans today. A new report on cyber security showing that since 2013, hackers have infiltrated more than 100 banks in 30 countries and stolen more than $1 billion, not to mention the many large data breaches which occurred in 2014, illustrate just how serious and widespread the problem of cyber crime is. Whether it’s money or sensitive personal data, we are extremely vulnerable to hackers. In the computer age, all our […]

Apple is about to change the way you log in to iMessage and FaceTime

Apple has introduced two-factor authentication for iMessage and FaceTime, which makes the services much more secure and trickier to hack into. The Guardian reports that the extra-secure two-factor system is going to be rolled out to cover the two services. Two-factor verifications means that users have to enter a second code when logging into a service. After entering your password, Apple will send a text to your phone and you’ll have to use that to login as well. The improved security means that if a hacker gets your password and tries to log into your iMessage or FaceTime account, the user has to check on their phone for the security code. Unless a hacker had your phone, then they can’t get into your account. Hackers used weak security in Apple’s iCloud account system to break into the iPhone backups of celebrities and steal their private photographs. Those images were released online back in September. The security question system was the weak part of Apple’s system. Hackers used publicly known information about celebrities to guess the answers and get into accounts. Adding two-factor verification to iMessage and FaceTime means that users need to approve login attempts on their phone – making […]

Anti-Fraud authorities in Canada have warned credit card holders about a new phishing scam that tries to extract card information from owners through an early-hour phone call. According to Daniel Williams, a senior official at the anti-fraud centre, the scam begins with a phone call between 5 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. The caller will try to identify as someone from the victim’s bank and say that a credit card was used last evening without due authorisation. This is the latest twist in credit card phishing scams that have been rampant in Canada. Fraudsters know that early in the morning, people will be sleepy and vulnerable, according to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. Early Morning Call Because of the early hour drowsiness, the victims often volunteer information, reports CBC News. The consumer is likely to share the details such as the bank he is banking with. Then the caller will read out the first few digits of the credit card which is standard for that bank. This will be followed by the scammers asking the victim to spell out the next eight digits to confirm their identity. Once the scammers have accessed the complete card number, they will use the information to […]
