Feds Violate Data Breach Reporting Requirements They Would Impose on Private Companies

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The federal government’s Office of Personnel Management apparently discovered in April amassive security breach of its systems in which the personally identifiable information at least 4 million government employees was rifled through by Chinese government hackers. The OPMwaited at least two months – that would be more than 60 days – to begin notifying current and former federal employees of the breach. Now, CNN is reporting that the hackers may have accessed personal information of 18 millioncurrent and former government employees. Earlier this year the Obama Admininstration proposed the Personal Data Notification & Protection Act which, among other things, would require any business … …that uses, accesses, transmits, stores, disposes of or collects sensitive personally identifiable information about more than 10,000 individuals during any 12-month period shall, following the discovery of a security breach of such information, notify any individual whose sensitive personally identifiable information has been, or is reasonably believed to have been, accessed or acquired, unless there is no reasonable risk of harm or fraud to such individual. Unless the business can demonstrate reasons for delay, they must inform customers about the security breach within 30 days of discovering the intrusion. To be fair, the data protection act does […]

Expert: People Need to Know their Data is Private

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Most people do not realize how much their data is being used for purposes they do not understand, internationally renowned security technologist Bruce Schneier told Arutz Sheva on the sidelines of the fifth annual International Cybersecurity Conference in Tel Aviv. “Largely, I think surveillance is bad,” Schneier said, adding that surveillance is leading to a world where people are losing their abilities to speak their mind without their thoughts being recorded, “and that’s very dangerous. I’m not convinced we really understand the implications”. At the same time, Schneier said, it is difficult to give up their cellphones or e-mail addresses because these are the “tools of modern life”. “What I want to see is more agitation for strong privacy laws,” he added. “People really need the ability to know their data is private.” Source: Israel National News

Hillary Clinton’s use of private email address while secretary of state draws scrutiny

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal email account to exclusively conduct official business during her time at the State Department, a move that raises questions about access to the full archive of her correspondence, as well as the possibility that she violated federal law requiring official messages to be retained for the record. The existence of the account was discovered by the House select committee investigating the deadly 2012 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and was first reported by The New York Times. Clinton did not even have a government email address during her tenure as America’s top diplomat, which lasted from 2009 to 2013, and The Times reports that her aides took no action to preserve her emails on department servers, as required by the Federal Records Act. Instead, the paper reports, Clinton’s advisers selected which of her emails to turn over to the State Department for archival purposes after going through tens of thousands of pages of correspondence. The department said late Monday that it had received 55,000 pages of Clinton’s emails as part of a request made to previous secretaries of state to turn over any official documents they may have […]
