reaction from cyber-security expert Nathanial Wallis following todays cyberattack on Uber revealing why ‘Uber’s assurances that stolen data has now been deleted should be taken with a pinch of salt.’
Get Safe Online have today published survey findings that revealed that under 25s are now more than twice as likely to fall victim to ‘friends and family’ phishing scams than baby boomers (over 55s). Furthermore, not only are they being duped more often, but they’re also being scammed out of more money each time – typically losing £613 compared to £214 by the older generation. The survey went on to identify phishing as the tactic used most often to trick unfortunate victims into handing over cash.
Comment from Amit Yoran, CEO, Tenable, in case of use:
“The Uber hack is just the latest example of a widespread culture of lackadaisical cyber practices and a lack of executive accountability – this mischaracterizes corporate risk and cripple cybersecurity efforts. Executives and organisations must be held accountable for both exercising a reasonable standard of care to protect their systems and their data and for discovering and disclosing breaches in a timely manner.”
It’s being reported that only a month after launching the Amazon Key, security experts are warning a flaw in the devices mode of operation could allow for rogue deliverymen entering homes without it ever being recorded- a potentially devastating security flaw.
