Data breaches - over half are due to carelessness, says ICO

Data breaches - over half are due to carelessness, says ICO | Metawriting | Scoop.it
The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has announced that the majority of data breaches in the first quarter of 2013 were due to carelessness in the way that the information was handled.

 

That's according to the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) which says 175 out of 335 incidents it examined between April 1 and June 30 were due to personal data being “disclosed in error”.

 

Half of data breaches are due to people being careless with what they do with private information. How can we all help to reduce this problem?

 

===> Do we need better user education? <===

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Summer 2013 App Reputation Report to examine the hidden behaviors behind free and paid mobile apps

 

The cloud-based, fully automated Appthority App Risk Management Service performed static, dynamic and behavioral app analysis on the 400 most popular free and paid apps on the iOS and Android platforms.

 

  

Appthority analyzed each app for particular behaviors within a test environment

.

Highlights from the App Reputation Report are:

 

- Overall, 83% of the most popular apps are associated with security risks and privacy issues.

 

- iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps. 91% of iOS apps exhibit at least one risky behavior, as compared to 80% of Android apps.

 

- 95% of the top free apps and 77.5% of the top paid apps exhibited at least one risky behavior.

 

- 78% of the most popular free Android apps identify the user's ID (UDID).

 

- Even though Apple prohibits its developers from accessing the UDID, 5.5% of the tested iOS apps still do.

 

- 72% of the top free apps track for the user's location, compared to 41% of paid apps.

 

- Although paid apps already generate revenue when downloaded, 59% of paid iOS and 24% of paid Android apps still support in-app purchasing.

 

- Furthermore, 39% of paid iOS and 16% of paid Android apps still share data with ad networks.
