London, UK: Poor security awareness, coupled with an insatiable demand for mobile apps, are placing UK consumers’ identities and devices at risk. A new nationwide survey commissioned by RiskIQ of 1,000 people across the country* reveals that almost half (45 per cent) do not scrutinise the app’s details while 60 per cent never or only occasionally review the privacy policy and permissions requested by the app before downloading. Such a fast and carefree approach to mobile apps is leaving UK consumers vulnerable to cyber criminals seeking to infect the mobile devices and steal information from unsuspecting victims.

He said: "The death and suffering caused by poison gas in Syria emphasizes the urgency -- not to escalate the war with more bombardment -- but to end it through negotiation between the United States and Russia. Only they can impose a solution on their clients."

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has announced the winners of its Regional Security Personnel Awards 2017, Vigilance can report.

Now in their nineteenth year, the prestigious awards serve to recognise the outstanding achievements and invaluable contributions made by professionals working within the UK’s private security industry. The awards are presented in five different categories: Best Team, Outstanding Act, Service to the Customer, Best Newcomer and Best Use of Technology. This year, there were 33 fantastic winners across all five categories over the UK.

The use of patterns or shapes in place of passwords is set to displace the hacker's favourite - the old-fashioned vulnerable fixed ID code which can so easily be captured and re-used - according to the two British inventors behind ShayypeTM.

Shayype is many times more secure than passwords, gives users new hacker-resistant login codes every time, yet is far easier to recall and use than passwords.

Already one UK firm - leading insurance quotation site 3XD - has announced plans to trial Shayype as soon as possible to protect customers and its own website from hacking. CEO David Fulluck said: "Urgent action is required across the financial technology sector in the wake of the alarming number of hacks and data breaches currently happening. But until now, the big question has been - how? What's so interesting about Shayype is that it takes vulnerable static passwords out of the equation completely, but is easier to use."

PHILADELPHIA: Rajant has announced that Sharp Electronics Corporation (“SEC”) will use its Kinetic Mesh™ technology as the wireless communications infrastructure for the Sharp INTELLOS™ Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (“A-UGV”).

London, UK: Organisations around the world are failing to implement effective digital strategies. As a result their customer experience (CX) solutions are becoming disjointed, and digital is not displacing traditional phone interactions at the speed that their customers are demanding.

SERIES: BUHARISM AND THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance

and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Femi Fani-Kayode...the pretended and self-appointed advocate of the masses who loathes their humble trades and the philosophy of cottage thinking.

I must stress here that in my new thinking and new economy concepts, every common labour that all Nigerians and all Africans love to deride and look down upon is an economy: fish selling, brick laying, kerosine selling, selling pepper, pepper grinding, broom selling, cleaning jobs, doing secuirty, waste disposal, be those of human beings or others - selling vegetables/grocery, house keeping (house helps, but efforts must be made to make it a profession, attracting the national living wage (NLW) and not the sort of omo odo that it is right now, especially in Nigeria as house keeping and nanny enterprises are big, rewarding and very lucrative economies in the West), selling akara (baked beans), selling moi-moi, guguru (pop corn), mecahnics, vulcanizers, repairing bicycles, (please about Howard Measham), selling brooms, shoe shinning and mending, tailoring or to make it look cool, fahion design, dry cleaning, running a restaurant, (whether Mama Put/Baba Put or which ever type, B&B, selling meat, plumbing, hole digging, carpentry and need I let the reader know a female English carpenter by name NICOLA BUTCHER came to fix a new door in my house recently, her graduate friends are still looking for jobs, whereas, she who had the wisdom of taking to the so-called "lowly job" as carpentry is earning thousands of pounds daily in addition to having a work van, sophisticated equipment, all bought by herself and she is already carting awards upon awards all over Britain and the British media won't let her be!), selling suya, pap, being a bus conductor, electrician, etc, etc.
