Coronavirus Widens the Money Mule Pool
"With many people being laid off or working from home thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, cybercrooks are almost certain to have more than their usual share of recruitable “money mules” — people who get roped into money laundering schemes under the pretense of a work-at-home job offer. Here’s the story of one upstart mule factory that spoofs a major nonprofit and tells new employees they’ll be collecting and transmitting donations for an international “Coronavirus Relief Fund.”

Zoho Remotely offers Home working solution during Coronavirus

Why AI projects fail – 5 Common mistakes in customer service
"Addressing the wrong challenges: Organisations often try to fix everything with one project, we call this ‘trying to boil the ocean’. At the other end of the scale, people can spend 18 months writing an AI strategy paper that ultimately delivers nothing. Remember to scope out the issue first and then address the challenge."

Cloud migration more costly than expected says Capita research
"The report outlines all the key challenges business face when migrating to the cloud. Despite the challenges 86% of respondents agree that the benefits of cloud are compelling enough to outweigh its downsides. Organisations initially saw cloud migration as a simple way to save money and another location to store applications and data. Increasingly, the move to cloud is supporting business innovations across all enterprises."

Clearview AI breach continues to have consequences
"There are a number of issues with this data breach. The company’s approach to being breached was more of a shrug and ‘it happens’ mentality. As Roy pointed out it shows the company “does not take cyber security and data privacy seriously.”

The claims that only law enforcement and security investigators can access data is also questionable. The number of educational, retail and other customers using the app shows that its use is far wider than the company admits. While there is evidence from the BuzzFeed News story that many are using trial accounts, you’d expect there to be oversight even at that level."

Time for cybersecurity to take back control of its story
"A need to address the talent gap and burn-out were also part of Ghai’s message. When it comes to bringing in new talent Ghai said: “It’s time to shift from elitism to inclusion.” Many HR teams dump CVs for cybersecurity roles, even junior ones, if people don’t have the right letters and awards. They often ignore experience. Think that isn’t true? Go and ask the community. Many of the cybersecurity communities I sit in talk continuously about the problem of getting a foothold because they haven’t done the courses HR thinks are requirements."

Blockchain 2020 – thoughts, comments and the future
"Blockchain 2020: though many will deny it, 2019 was a year of relatively small progress for blockchain in the enterprise. Yes, progress occurred. But it was not of an earth-shattering form.

As a mild antidote as well as precursor to 2020 Enterprise Times offers up a selection of statements made about blockchain for next year. Take them as you will…"

Does Disney need a security princess after claims Disney+ hacked?
"The same is true of hacking attacks. It really doesn’t matter who is at fault. The immediate response to blame the victims is not what customers would have expected. Disney will now have to prove that it was not at fault and do so quickly. Using a third-party forensics team to establish what happened is a must. So is finding some way to help those customers regain access to their accounts."

Facebook admits to circumventing GDPR
"Facebook claims that it is no longer bound by GDPR because of the way it changed its terms and conditions. It is relying on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR which states: “processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.”

The details were released in a coordinated vulnerabilitiy disclosure from Armis, the FDA, DHS and BD Alaris, a manufacturer of medical devices.

Hunting botnets and Chinese hackers targeting finance
"Cooperation between security companies and industry bodies is delivering significant benefits in the fight against cybercriminals. Country after country is introducing its own cyber force for good and for bad. This raises the stakes considerably in terms of the types of attacks.

Law enforcement is likely to be heavily reliant on private companies going forward. The question is how much intelligence will governments share to help detect attacks. As our coverage of Zerodium from yesterday shows, the lines of share and use are very blurry."

Is Sage obfuscating on cloud revenue?
"There is a lack of detail in Sage results that often frustrates. On the whole the numbers look solid. Yet there are several unanswered questions about its actual performance and strategy. Aaron Harris, appointed in 2019 will deliver his cloud strategy at the end of year. It will be interesting to see how that shifts Sage towards fulfilling its vision. At the moment it is not easy to see whether it is actually heading in the right direction. Again, there was no mention of Sage People, which historically has been one of the fastest growing cloud products for Sage."

World Economic Forum to define blockchain for supply chain deployment
"Assembling over 100 of the more influential ports, shippers and supply chain companies to co-design an open-source toolkit to accelerate the deployment of blockchain technology in a coherent manner is no mean achievement. There are many competing interests. Perhaps it needed the ‘sponsorship’ from a body like the World Economic Forum to break down barriers."

US survey says shoppers want less automation, more human interaction with customer service
"The report revealed that, despite misconceptions of robots taking over, consumers still want human interaction while navigating digital assets. What’s more, they don’t expect, nor want technology to replace real people. It’s true consumers are open-minded about using technology like chatbots that save time and make life easier. But they still trust humans to help solve more complex problems and make experiences such as online shopping, filling a prescription or making a bank deposit — more enjoyable."

Marriott data breach shows cyber security risks of mergers
"The company also admitted that the information also includes payment card numbers and payment card expiration dates. While it claims the payment card numbers were encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard encryption (AES-128) it also admits that the keys to decrypt those payment cards may also have been stolen. If so, this makes the breach significantly worse as it shows the hackers had complete access to all company information."

He has impressed the Board with the momentum, focus and clarity he has brought to the organisation over the last few months as COO but also throughout his tenure as CFO.

Supply Chain Security is the Whole Enchilada, But Who’s Willing to Pay for It?
"In a nutshell, the Bloomberg story claims that San Jose, Calif. based tech giant Supermicro was somehow caught up in a plan to quietly insert a rice-sized computer chip on the circuit boards that get put into a variety of servers and electronic components purchased by major vendors, allegedly including Amazon and Apple. The chips were alleged to have spied on users of the devices and sent unspecified data back to the Chinese military."

Philippine rural banks partner with UnionBank for blockchain

The second is that, though blockchain is complex, that does not mean complexity has to exclude smaller business. As the UnionBank link with the four small Philippine rural banks shows, blockchain can reach any level of business."

FedEx leaks highly sensitive customer data
"The data came from the acquisition of Bongo International that FedEx made back in 2014. It later renamed and then shutdown the business unit in April 2017. What is not clear is how long the data has been exposed. Was it originally exposed by Bongo before the acquisition? Did it become orphaned data after the company was shutdown? Either way, there is evidence that the data has been exposed for some time."

However, there are many more tech drivers which directly affect manufacturers. Areas such as artificial intelligence, Automation/Robotics, Additive Manufacturing and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) will also change the face of manufacturing."

AdGuard calls out sites for cryptojacking failures
"The company reports that there are around 2,500 downloads of this code per day. This is likely to be for more than just cryptojacking. Downloads are also likely to be used by other cybercriminals for malvertising. It is also entirely possible that some websites are using the code to boost the number of ads that they serve. With many advertisers paying per impression of an ad, there is a lot of interest in improving ad serving."

RAND’s blockchain challenges and opportunities
"No doubt because the BSI commissioned the Report, its focus is on standards. There is relatively little examination of the processing implications (including the speed and size of DLT/blockchains). The description: “the distributed nature of DLT/blockchain systems and the need for increased computing power could involve high energy consumption and associated costs” does not explore the issues in depth. Similarly, the merits of interworking DLT/blochchains could do with more depth."

IFS joins Salesforce Ohana
"The announcement comes as a slight surprise but is no doubt in part due to the presence on the board of Craig Conway. Conway joined the IFS board in August 2016 but has been a member of the Salesforce board since 2005. It suddenly brings another potential acquisition ERP target for Salesforce into play. There is little information available about how deep the integration with Sales Cloud is but it will be interesting to see whether IFS build other interfaces."

Cross-border blockchain banking takes a big step forwards, with dangers
"Then there is IBM. As ET speculated not long ago, IBM becomes the blockchain monster. The participating banks depend on IBM for development and enhancement. They become beholden to what IBM decides, of course in consultation with its clients. Remember SWIFT. This is a member-institution that more often than not tells its members what it wants and not vice versa. Or Visa: it was once a bank member-owned ‘co-operative’. Now it is its own master."

It’s time to work smarter."

With Workday Rising, possibly the place where these will be unveiled, SAP clearly wanted to state their case strongly at their own convention."

Bitcoin and estcoin cryptocurrency craziness
"ET deliberately separates blockchain from Bitcoin/ICOs/cryptocurrencies. This occurs for two underlying reasons:

we believe that blockchain technologies have profound potential, even if as yet unproven, for enterprises
we regard the cryptocurrency/ICO investments arena as changing too fast as well as being beyond our competence.

This may have to change. But, for the moment, it explains why we spend so little time on cryptocurrencies."

"The new email campaigns use reputable brands to trick users. Microsoft has published some of the emails it has captured. These appear to come from big brands such as Alibaba, Amazon and LinkedIn. They all contain links that if examined are not to the sites they claim to be from. The reason these emails succeed is that people often take the email at face value, trust the brand and just click on the link without thinking about it."

Few of them have any security training."
