Happy Data Privacy Day! Time to value more and protect your digital data

Interested in reading a good story? I’m up for an intriguing tale anytime. I bet you’re going to enjoy the one below because it’s a story about you.

You wake up every day, go to work, maybe have a fight with a colleague or your boss; then chat with your friends. Some nights you go out and have fun, others, you spend indoors and watch a movie. Every day is more or less the same, over and over again. But this is just the big picture and they say that details count the most; they’re the ones that make a valid story.

Your daily habits say a lot, if not everything about your personality, personal preferences and even political beliefs. And today, all these details are exposed in the digital world.

Here is how. If you have a daily routine (or at least similar) to the one bellow, maybe you should consider some useful advice:

WPA3 – the new Wi-Fi security protocol to be launched in 2018

Remember the Krack Wi-Fi vulnerability from October last year that has put all internet users to a dismay? Well, the good news is that it’s very possible we won’t have to go through that risky situation again.

Just a few days ago, during the annual CES event (one of the biggest technology and innovation shows), the Wi-Fi Alliance has announced the launch of a new wireless security protocol—Wi-Fi Protected Access WPA3 this year.

WPA3 will replace the current WPA2—the security protocol that all Wi-Fi networks have been using for over 15 years.

Why is WPA2 considered vulnerable?

The main insecurity issue of WPA2 is given by the “unencrypted” open Wi-Fi networks that makes it incredibly easy for anyone who uses the same network to access other devices.

Secondly, one of the WPA2 protocols is that the same password is used by clients and business owners when joining a Wi-Fi network (for instance the clients of a coffee shop and the owner of the coffee shop).

Due to these vulnerabilities, hackers can intercept Wi-Fi traffic and steal online data quite effortlessly.

What are the most dangerous digital threats that lie ahead in 2018?

Most of us look to the future with optimism. Or better said, we hope for the best. That includes cyber security threats, which means we hope these will be fewer and less vulnerable. Unfortunately, though, odds are that the situation will be quite the opposite.

We don’t mean to stir any panic; we just want to get you prepared for what security specialists believe it will come.

Here are the main 5 predictions for 2018 in terms of digital threats:

  1. Takeover of chat-bots bound to draw hackers

Chat-bots have become such a thing that numerous businesses have adopted these versatile and useful tools. Think about how many websites have integrated chat-bots to schedule meetings, provide customer support and so on.

Chances are more companies will implement chatbots, but this will create a perfect medium for online hackers. They could impersonate users and compromise the bot services in phishing schemes and social engineering hacks.

  1. Rise in online travel and booking frauds

The hospitality and tourism industry are one of the largest and richest worldwide.

Freedom on the Net Report 2017 reflects a worrying increase in digital censorship

Another year has passed in the realm of digital freedom, leaving the global situation more and more precarious, especially in the context of various elections taking place throughout the world.

According to Freedom House, which surveyed 65 countries for its ‘Freedom on the Net 2017’ report (87% of the world’s Internet users), the state of the Internet freedom around the world has little cause for celebration, as this year continues to present a world where few societies give their citizens access to a free, uncensored Internet.

Thus, nearly half of the 65 countries assessed in Freedom on the Net 2017 experienced declines during the coverage period, while just 13 made progress, most of it minor. Less than one-quarter of users reside in countries where the internet is designated free, meaning there are no major obstacles to access, excessive restrictions on content, or serious violations of user rights in the form of unchecked surveillance or unjust repercussions for legitimate speech.

However, in one of the world’s leading democracies, the United States, the use of “fake news”, automated “bot” accounts, and other manipulation methods gained particular attention and caused a decline in the country’s overall Internet freedom. While the online environment in the US remained generally free, it was troubled by a proliferation of fabricated news articles, as well as aggressive harassment of many journalists, both during and after the presidential election campaign.

 

The usual suspects and some unexpected improvements

Of the 65 countries assessed, 32 have been on an overall decline since June 2016. The biggest declines took place in Ukraine, Egypt, and Turkey.
