Cyber fraud is big business here

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Financial fraud is big business, contributing to an estimated $20 billion in direct losses annually. Industry experts suspect that this figure is actually much higher, as firms cannot accurately identify and measure losses due to fraud, says the ASSOCHAM–PwC(PricewaterhouseCoopers) report titled ‘Current Fraud Trends in the Financial Sector’. The report attributes increasing technology-driven transactions in the financial sector as the main reason for growing cyber frauds. Exploiting technology vulnerabilities has become the weapon of choice for fraudsters. Yet another ASSOCHAM – PwC report ‘Evolution of eCommerce in India: Creating the Bricks Behind the Clicks’ says, eCommerce has grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35 per cent in the past few years. The overall eCommerce business, which is valued at $17 billion now, is expected to cross $100 billion over the next five years. As it expands, so will be the incidence of cyber frauds. As of now, the country’s eCommerce industry is relatively small compared with  its size in countries such as the US and China. A big market with high value eCommerce transactions is a rewarding marketplace for cyber criminals. You have to look at some of the cyber-attacks such as Target and Home Depot that […]

Welcome to your privacy nightmare! Is big business getting out of hand with Big Data?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

“When businesses are allowed to gather personal information, predict your behaviour and make decisions based on it, this is the information wild west. Welcome to the nightmare.” Richard Hollis, director of information security consultancy the Risk Factory, believes that the ability of big data and predictive analytics systems to profile customers is generating “huge problems” in privacy terms for both online, and offline, consumers that are, as yet, poorly understood. He explains: “It’s all about the data these days and everyone wants it – states, governments, businesses. And people don’t understand the implications because they want cheap hotel rooms and the like. But the big question is, who owns the data?” For example, if Hollis went to an online pharmacy to buy some medicine, would his activity information belong to him or the shop in question – particularly if it was going to be used for marketing purposes to personalise offers in a bid to get him to buy more in future? He warns: People are completely in the dark. They don’t know how much their data is worth to companies and they can’t see the negative consequences of a lack of transparency. They don’t understand that companies are in […]

IT Business Products : SSD 101

If the initials SSD fail to make your heart beat faster, you haven’t been following the latest technology news. SSD stands for “Solid-State Drive,” an electronic reinvention of the hard drive. And your PC wants one.

No Moving Parts

Machines with moving parts eventually break down; it’s a law of nature. Old-fashioned hard drives, with spinning platters, moving read-write heads, and fragile magnetic media are a perfect example. That’s why the latest electronic technology is aimed at replacing those clunky hard drives with sleek SSDs—solid-state drives that use nonvolatile NAND flash memory. Dropping an SSD into your PC is easy, especially if you choose a vendor that designs its SSDs to use the same interface as a standard hard disk drive and with the same physical dimensions.

Fast is Good

SSDs access data a lot faster than standard hard drives. For office staffers or students working on a Netbook or laptop that means less time waiting for the computer to boot up, or for data to become available. And laptop warriors will be pleased to note that SSDs use far fewer amps than hard drives. Install an SSD, and your laptop battery may last several hours longer—long enough for you to finish that report before the plane lands.

Fail-Safe Storage

Because SSDs have no moving parts, they have a huge edge over regular drives. For one thing, SSDs are more resistant to shock and vibration than hard-disk drives, with fewer potential points of mechanical failure. Also, SSDs are silent, which makes them great for PCs in living areas. Finally, they use less power and generate less heat, so they don’t require fans.

The Trade-Offs

Of course, SSDs are still more expensive, gigabyte for gigabyte, than standard hard drives. And while a new SSD may offer blazing speed, over time its performance may degrade depending on how you use the drive and how your operating system manages memory writes. Also, cheaper models are significantly slower than top-of-the-line SSD devices. And for the most part, SSDs limit you to much smaller storage capacity than do conventional hard drives – at least for now.

Bottom Line

Prices on SSDs are dropping fast as new operating systems (particularly Windows 7) take advantage of their potentially higher speeds. That means the best time to consider sliding one into your computer is right now.

A hacker cartel is using a mysterious Flash vulnerability to steal sensitive business data

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Hackers are using a mysterious, as yet undiscovered, Flash vulnerability, to steal sensetive business data from Macbook and Windows users, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab. Kaspersky Lab revealed the campaign in a threat advisory, warning a hacker group, known as Wild Neutron is using the “unknown Flash Player exploit” to infect companies and private web users with a data siphoning malware. “The initial infection vector from the 2014-2015 attacks is still unknown, although there are clear indications that the victims are exploited by a kit that leverages an unknown Flash Player exploit,” read the advisory. The attacks have reportedly targeted businesses involved in law, the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, investment, IT, healthcare, and real estate. Known targets have been detected in France, Russia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Palestine, Slovenia, Kazakhstan, UAE, Algeria, and the United States. Kaspersky Lab director of global research and analysis team Costin Raiu said Wild Neutron’s wide range of targets is atypical and indicates the attackers are significantly more advanced than most cyber crime groups. “The group’s targeting of major IT companies, spyware developers (FlexiSPY), jihadist forums (the ‘Ansar Al-Mujahideen English Forum’) and Bitcoin companies indicate a flexible yet unusual mindset and interests,” he said. The Kaspersky researchers said […]

Transfer and copy files thirteen minutes and five seconds faster than usual—just enough time to give you a head start on rush-hour traffic.

4. Start Applications in Seconds

Need to make a quick ten-second edit before meeting with a client? SSDs load programs such as Adobe Photoshop and PowerPoint more than twice as fast as their HDD counterparts.

5. Double File-Compilation Power

Just because programmers sit behind a computer screen all day doesn’t mean they’re immune to slowness. An SSD boasts 2x faster file-compilation times than HDD.

6. Cut Downtime by Half

Routine maintenance tasks shouldn’t disrupt your work flow. SSD cuts simple tasks such as virus scans by almost 50 percent.

7. Reduce Power Consumption

SSD requires less energy than a conventional HDD and can add an average of 30 minutes to battery life.

8. Master Multitasking

SSD smoothly handles multiple programs so you can crop photos and load game maps nearly 3x faster than with HDD.

5 tips to protect your business against cyber crime

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

With 30,000 companies hacked every day, it’s no wonder cyber crime is ranked one of the top five risks facing businesses this year, according to the 2015 Allianz Risk Barometer report. It’s also the top emerging risk for the next five years. (See more about the other top risks facing businesses this yearhere.) So why do so many businesses still underestimate the effects of cyber attacks? Respondents of the Allianz report cite budget constraints as the primary reason for their lack of preparedness for the potential damage caused. What many business owners don’t realize is that cyber attacks cost companies an average of $720,000 per incident, taking an average of 45 days to resolve. There’s a misconception that larger companies, like the Targets and Home Depots of the world, are more likely to be the target of an attack. But, according to the National Small Business Association, 44 percent of small businesses have experienced a cyber attack. In fact, the malware attacker that accessed Target’s private data did so by using the network access privileges of one of Target’s heating and air conditioning vendors, Fazio Mechanical Services, Inc. By acting as a portal, Fazio, a $12.5 million dollar company, opened […]
