Media Alert: Comparitech.com finds that 1 in 4 Britons would allow their mobile, broadband or TV provider share data with third parties if they could get a cheap or free service

Comparitech.com, the website that helps people to make informed choices about privacy, together with One Poll, has polled 1,000 members of the UK public and found that one in four people would willingly give up their personal data to third parties in return for a cheap or free service from their mobile, broadband or TV provider. This can include data such as contact information and web usage, which could then be used to target advertisements by third parties, or in worse cases compromise privacy in the event of a data breach.

Qognify, formerly NICE Security, has announced that Hongqiao Airport in Shanghai, China, is marking the seventh anniversary since its implementation of Qognify’s Video Management Solution. Airport management has leveraged the security solution’s stability and versatility to expand its role further, to ensure smooth airport operations.

For the report, High-Tech Bridge analyzed domains of the leading cybersecurity companies from the NASDAQ’s NQCYBR index, as well as few private but well-known cybersecurity companies. They used Domain Security Radar for this purpose, a free online service designed to detect cybersquatting, typosquatting and phishing domains for a particular brand or Internet domain.

In response to reports that the passwords and email account information of 117M LinkedIn users are reportedly for sale:

John Gunn, VP of Communications, VASCO Data Security comments: If the data being offered is verified, this represents a massive risk to countless organizations. LinkedIn is work related, so many employees of an enterprise will use their exact work credentials, username and password for their LinkedIn account. This means that the hackers and their eventual buyers could have the login credentials for many millions of enterprises employees. No one should ever use their work password for any other account and everyone should be using a second factor of authentication when security matters.

It may seem obvious, but to be safe, everyone with a LinkedIn account should reset their password, now.

VPS Group ("VPS" or "the Company") has appointed David Taylor-Smith as the Company's new Group CEO. David is replacing Mark Silver, who is taking up the role of non-executive Chairman of VPS. David will be based in the Company's new London office and he will start on 23 May 2016.

It has been reported that a hacker is trying to sell the account information, including emails and passwords, of 117 million LinkedIn users. The hacker, known as Peace, is selling the data on the dark web illegal marketplace, The Real Deal, for 5 bitcoin (around $2,200). Hacked data search engine, LeakedSource, also claims to have obtained the data. Both Peace and the one of the people behind LeakedSource said that there are 167 million accounts in the hacked database. Of those, around 117 million have both emails and encrypted passwords.

More than 700 people have now successfully completed safety training since the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) first set up its Safety Diploma scheme.

This number is set to rise significantly following the expansion of the scheme to cover a wider range of industry sectors. The DHF pioneered the Safety Diploma scheme with the introduction of training for those responsible for the safety of automatically controlled powered gates.
