Ransomware Business Cyber-Attack Analysis

Ransomware Attack

These kinds of cyber attack are very simple to avoid in business and yet the basics of information security management have been ignored. To get the ball rolling just ask yourself these 2 simple questions:

  • Why is our business critical/sensitive information connected to the internet and is it really necessary?
  • Why are the same computers that are connected to the internet also used to connect to business critical/sensitive data?

Generally speaking the answers to these questions are the… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Do you have the brains for Cybersecurity?

If you want to stop people reading your secret messages, use a code to conceal the meaning.

From ancient times to the present day, security, codes and puzzles have been intertwined, as have the people who have tried to crack those codes to read messages they were never meant to see. During World War Two, the code-cracking centre at Bletchley Park was known to recruit people who were a dab hand at solving crosswords and other puzzles. The thinking was… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Mastercard rolls out selfie ID checks

Credit card firm Mastercard has confirmed it will accept selfie photos and fingerprints as an alternative to passwords when verifying IDs for online payments. It follows a trial of the software carried out in the US and Netherlands last year. The company told the BBC that 92% of its test subjects preferred the new system to passwords. One expert said that such biometric checks had the potential to cut fraud. However, some security researchers have questioned how easy it might… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Apple apologises for iPhone ‘error 53’ and issues fix

Apple has said sorry to iPhone customers whose phones were disabled after third-party repairs, and issued a fix for the problem.

Previously, Apple had said the error was a “security measure” taken to prevent fraudulent transactions.

Now, the company has released a software update to fix the error.

In a statement, Apple said that “error 53” occurs when… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Students hit by University of Greenwich data breach

Personal details about hundreds of London-based research students were posted online in an apparent breach of data privacy laws. The University of Greenwich has apologised and said it is in the process of contacting those affected. The matter was brought to the BBC’s attention by one of the students, who discovered the information could be found via a Google search. They also flagged the matter to the UK’s data watchdog. The Information Commissioner’s Office has confirmed that an investigation is… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Can technology bring lawyers into the 21st Century?

The legal profession is perhaps more associated with bulging files of papers, odd clothing and arcane procedures than with technological innovation. But several start-ups are trying to give this most conservative – and sometimes vexing – of professions a digital makeover. Basha Rubin, for example, co-founded New York’s Priori Legal, an online marketplace that connects lawyers with businesses, after she perceived that there were too many obstacles in the way of businesses trying to find legal services.

Lawyers listed on… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Phone software bug ‘eavesdrops and makes premium calls’

A VOIP software bug can enable scammers to eavesdrop on phone conversations and make high-cost calls on other people’s lines, security experts have shown. The problem affects voice-over-internet-protocol (Voip) phones, commonly used by businesses. Just by running a couple of lines of code on a website visited by the phone user, the researchers demonstrated how premium-rate calls could be made. A security expert said such bugs could make “millions” for the perpetrators     More >>>>

Titan Atlas | Do We Need Stronger Sentences For Data Theft?

The recent case of a woman being fined just £1000 for the illegal selling of 28,000 customer records has led to renewed calls from the UK’s Information Commissioner (ICO) Christopher Graham for custodial sentences for data theft.

The Current Situation

As things stand now UK courts can issue unlimited fines but not custodial sentences.

This has long been a point of frustration for the Information Commission. In 2006 for example the then chief of the ICO, Richard Thomas said that… Continue reading

Titan Atlas | Google takes wider action on ‘right to be forgotten’

Tech giant Google says it will hide content removed under the “right to be forgotten” from all versions of the search engine when viewed from countries where removal was approved.

Under the “right to be forgotten” ruling, EU citizens may ask search engines to remove information about them.

Now, removed results will not appear on any version of Google.

EU privacy regulators previously asked the firm to do this.

Until now, search results removed under the “right to be forgotten”… Continue reading
