Millennials wearing Snapchat Spectacles could be a privacy disaster

Millennials wearing Snapchat Spectacles could be a privacy disaster | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

The new Snapchat Spectacles might look like a toy, but connected sunglasses may carry hidden security implications. 

Snap Inc. — the company behind the disappearing message app Snapchat — unveiled its newest product, Spectacles, on Thursday. The sunglasses-turned-video-camera lets you capture quick 10-second scenes that immediately get sent to your Snapchat account on your phone (making them public is another step).

SEE ALSO: Of course you have to buy Snapchat's Spectacles from a robot

With bold, bright colors and blinking lights to indicate recording, the device feels more like a toy than a serious piece of technology, which only adds to the appeal for its user base. Snapchat says its app reaches a whopping 41 percent of all 18- to 34-year-olds in the United States. Now, users of the app can attach internet-enabled cameras to their faces that capture everything in their field of vision. 

The problem? The product could make it much easier to record personal information and invade another person's privacy without them even realizing it.

Cybersecurity is just too much trouble for the general public, claims study

Cybersecurity is just too much trouble for the general public, claims study | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Oh dear. It may very well be National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, but a new study suggests that many of the general public have thrown in the towel and given up.

The detailed study, from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), suggests that the public is suffering from “security fatigue” and a feeling of helplessness when it comes to their online security:

“Participants expressed a sense of resignation, loss of control, fatalism, risk minimization, and decision avoidance, all characteristics of security fatigue. The authors found that the security fatigue users experience contributes to their cost-benefit analyses in how to incorporate security practices and reinforces their ideas of lack of benefit for following security advice.”
Resignation, fatigue, dread, decision avoidance… these aren’t good things. If users feel out-of-depth when it comes to securing themselves online they are either going to avoid making decisions or fall back on bad habits.

Some of the statements given by the study’s participants paint a concerning picture:

“Security seems to be a bit cumbersome, just something else to have and keep up with.”

“I think I am desensitized to it… People get weary of being bombarded by watch out for this, watch out for that.”

“…first it gives me a login, then it gives me a site key I have to recognize, then it gives me a passsword. So that is enough, don’t ask me anything else.”

“I get tired of remembering my username and passwords.”

“I never remember the PIN numbers, there are too many things for me to remember. It is frustrating to have to remember this useless information.”

“It also bothers me when I have to go through more additional security measures to access my things, or get locked out of my own account because I forgot as I accidentally typed in my password incorrectly.”
When you read comments like that, it’s understandable that some people are exhibiting signs of “security fatigue”.

Researchers find more than 100 Tor nodes that are snooping on users | #CyberSecurity #Privacy #Awareness | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

Tor, or “The Onion Router” as it was originally known, is used around the world as an anonymity network. It provides a private method of communication for journalists, those living under authoritarian governments, and people who are just up to some shady stuff. While Tor is still the most robust form of online anonymity we have, it’s not bulletproof as the repeated takedown of The Silk Road and other law enforcement actions have shown. Now, two computer scientists say they’ve uncovered snoops inside the Tor network that may be listening in on what you’re doing.

Session 65: What is the educational value of blogs, wikis and class/school websites? | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

 

Session Summary: 

Wow… what a fast and furious end to September as the #ukedchat masses discussed all things bloggery!


There are a number of key #ukedchat contributors who have long advocated blogging as a tool for good. In this week’s discussion, they had a chance to convert the rest of us… and believe me, I think it worked!

People spoke overwhelmingly positively about the potential for blogs to offer pupils an audience for their writing, however it soon became clear that blogs can be used in so many different ways and have many different purposes and goals.

 

We discussed safety and workload concerns, how to use blogs to promote literacy and parental engagement and how blogging can improve pupils’ self-esteem. The doubters (of which I suppose I was one, having not really yet embraced blogging as a class tool…) were very quickly silenced as more and more educators tweeted about the positive impact blogging has had.

 

I can honestly say that this week’s #ukedchat discussion has given me so much inspiration. In fact, I’m now working on a plan to change my KS3 writers club into a blogging club!

Empathy in Action: How Teachers Prepare Future Citizens | #DigitalCitiZENship #digcit #ModernEDU | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

Empathy is systemically related to all of the abilities on the compass, particularly to self-awareness at "true south." Research suggests that the more children become aware of themselves, the better they become at understanding others. Volumes have been written about how to teach empathy, and there is still much to learn. In an excellent article from the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley, author Roman Krznaric, Ph.D., claims that highly empathetic people:

Cultivate curiosity about strangers


Challenge prejudices and discover commonalities


Gain direct experience of other people's lives


Listen and open themselves to others


Inspire mass action and social change


Develop an ambitious imagination


All of these behaviors foster personal growth and lifelong learning while contributing to the growth of society, particularly empathy's role in inspiring social change.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 26, 7:05 PM
How do children learn to care enough about others that they reap the personal rewards associated with giving? When young people develop empathy, they not only thrive in school and life, but they also impact their communities in positive, often extraordinary ways. Individual and societal success depends on raising and educating children who care about others. But we have misled today's children to believe that success is achieved through test scores, material wealth, and personal gain. In turn, there has been a measurable shift toward self-centeredness at a time when society depends more, not less, on people who give of themselves.

The Hierarchy of IoT “Thing” Needs | Internet of Things | CyberSecurity | Privacy

The Hierarchy of IoT “Thing” Needs | Internet of Things | CyberSecurity | Privacy | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

To define an IoT “Thing,” I’m going to employ Maslow’s hierarchy of needs — that well-known human psychology paradigm typically displayed in the shape of a pyramid, with the most fundamental human needs (physiological needs like air, food and water) at the bottom and rising to the most esoteric needs (self-actualization or expression of full potential) at the apex.

 

The reason to think this way is to enable the use of familiar paradigms when “Thing” architecture and interaction models are designed. For example, consider this simple question: “What should you consider when purchasing an IoT thing?” With this new thinking, the answer becomes: “The same stuff you consider when you hire a new employee.” Trustworthiness, reliability and ability to work well with others form a great basis for consideration in both cases.

Gust MEES's curator insight, February 20, 2016 10:48 AM

To define an IoT “Thing,” I’m going to employ Maslow’s hierarchy of needs — that well-known human psychology paradigm typically displayed in the shape of a pyramid, with the most fundamental human needs (physiological needs like air, food and water) at the bottom and rising to the most esoteric needs (self-actualization or expression of full potential) at the apex.


The reason to think this way is to enable the use of familiar paradigms when “Thing” architecture and interaction models are designed. For example, consider this simple question: “What should you consider when purchasing an IoT thing?” With this new thinking, the answer becomes: “The same stuff you consider when you hire a new employee.” Trustworthiness, reliability and ability to work well with others form a great basis for consideration in both cases.

Twitter is starting to realize it has more to lose by staying silent on the issue of abuse.

 

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo wrote in a note to employees that he planned to start kicking trolls off of the platform “right and left and making sure that when they issue their ridiculous attacks, nobody hears them.”

This is a great infographic I found ==> via @dailyinfographic. It paints a great picture on how everyone must be aware of what they decide to post and/or share on social media and Internet.

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Child identity theft is considered to be one of the fastest-growing crimes. Kids’ identities are stolen over 50 times more than those of adults! We’re often so focused protecting our kids from so many threats in the real world; we forget that in cyberspace bad guys are stealing children’s identities to open credit cards, apply for loans, rent homes and even receive health care. Bad guys make money by selling and reselling the same child’s identity over and over. And they get away with it because parents don’t think about monitoring their son or daughter’s identity.

Why is this important? Children could potentially lose out on future jobs, internships and loans that require a clean background check or credit report—all because they were victims of identity theft as kids. That’s a future I’m trying to help my daughters avoid. Growing up in the real world is difficult enough that I don’t want their digital lives to hold them back.

Steven Stich's curator insight, December 9, 2014 8:40 PM

Did you know that children's identity is stolen over 50 times more than adults? I had no idea until reading this article. People who steal children's identity use their information to open credit cards, apply for loans, and this can affect kids ability to gain jobs in the future as a result. One day these children will be the future of America so it is vital that actions are taken by parents to ensure that their children are being safe online, and that no one is taking advantage of them.

How Splitting a Computer Into Multiple Realities Can Protect You From Hackers | CyberSecurity

How Splitting a Computer Into Multiple Realities Can Protect You From Hackers | CyberSecurity | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

 

Eight years ago, Polish hacker Joanna Rutkowska was experimenting with rootkits—tough-to-detect spyware that infects the deepest level of a computer’s operating system—when she came up with a devious notion: What if, instead of putting spyware inside a victim’s computer, you put the victim’s computer inside the spyware? At the time, a technology known…

 

So Rutkowska flipped the game, this time in favor of the defenders. Four years ago her Warsaw-based firm, Invisible Things Lab, started developing its own operating system known as Qubes. The free open source OS lets users set up a collection of virtual machines on their PC, with a simple central interface to manage each quarantined system. Careful users can keep their personal online activities isolated in one virtual machine, for instance, while they do their work in another, and their banking in a third. (Rutkowska typically runs about 15.) Open a malicious email attachment or click on an infected website and the malware can’t break out of that one contaminated container.

 

If it works as promised, even NSA-level exploits would be contained to a single compartment in Qubes’ architecture, one that could be evaporated and re-created at will. Recovering from even the nastiest hacker attack, in other words, could soon be as easy as waking from a bad dream.
