10 urgent actions to take #today to remain in control of your digital life @fmheir #PrivacyAware  | Network Security | Scoop.it

In this post I share 10 urgent actions that must be taken immediately to manage, secure and protect your digital-moi.

Digital-moi is a unique concept that I have developed since 2013, centered on the impact that digital technologies have on our lives and the need to protect our digital self. Read more about it in this introduction post “We all have a digital twin“. This post is a complement to the conference “digital-moi.com: how to manage and protect your digital self“.

Only 12% of Americans Use a pwd mgmt software says @pewresearch report on Cybersecurity1 | Network Security | Scoop.it

This survey finds that a majority of Americans have directly experienced some form of data theft or fraud, that a sizeable share of the public thinks that their personal data have become less secure in recent years, and that many lack confidence in various institutions to keep their personal data safe from misuse. In addition, many Americans are failing to follow digital security best practices in their own personal lives, and a substantial majority expects that major cyberattacks will be a fact of life in the future.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

As I wrote recently in the "Pyramid of Digital Needs" (fmcs.digital/blog/pyramid-of-digital-needs/), security is one of the most basic needs. When we don't feel secure and private then it is difficult to enjoy the benefits of social networks and all the other tools that digital now provides. It is essential that corporations address security and privacy in a meaningful way in order for their clients, employees and partners to use their new digital tools and embrace the digital transformation that most enterprises have recently embarked on.

New System Could Connect Cell Phones to Real Cells and Treat Disease

New System Could Connect Cell Phones to Real Cells and Treat Disease | Network Security | Scoop.it
Microelectronics has transformed our lives. Cellphones, earbuds, pacemakers, defibrillators—all these and more rely on microelectronics’ very small electronic designs and components. Microelectronics has changed the way we collect, process and transmit information.

Such devices, however, rarely provide access to our biological world; there are technical gaps. We can’t simply connect our cellphones to our skin and expect to gain health information. For instance, is there an infection? What type of bacteria or virus is involved? We also can’t program the cellphone to make and deliver an antibiotic, even if we knew whether the pathogen was Staph or Strep. There’s a translation problem when you want the world of biology to communicate with the world of electronics.

The research we’ve just published with colleagues in Nature Communications brings us one step closer to closing that communication gap. Rather than relying on the usual molecular signals, like hormones or nutrients, that control a cell’s gene expression, we created a synthetic “switching” system in bacterial cells that recognizes electrons instead. This new technology—a link between electrons and biology—may ultimately allow us to program our phones or other microelectronic devices to autonomously detect and treat disease.
Communicating with electrons, not molecules

One of the barriers scientists have encountered when trying to link microelectronic devices with biological systems has to do with information flow. In biology, almost all activity is made possible by the transfer of molecules like glucose, epinephrine, cholesterol and insulin signaling between cells and tissues. Infecting bacteria secrete molecular toxins and attach to our skin using molecular receptors. To treat an infection, we need to detect these molecules to identify the bacteria, discern their activities and determine how to best respond.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

We are being tracked everywhere as I reported in a previous article about behavioral tracking: http://fmcs.digital/blog/behavioral-tracking-explained-in-9min-video-by-gary_kovacs-via-ted-mustsee-privacyaware-dataprivacyday/ 

This new tracking method is very clever as it uses your browser configuration settings to derive an almost unique fingerprint to track you everywhere, even in the absence of cookies or ad beacons on a web page. On this Data Privacy day 2017, be aware, and be careful.

Mitigating the Risks of Social Login via @hbr

Mitigating the Risks of Social Login via @hbr | Network Security | Scoop.it

These third party login tools promise more traffic, more subscribers, more members, more customers and more sales — and those promises have come true: as some have noted, up to 80% of web users choose Facebook Connect or another social authentication option when it’s available (as opposed to signing up for a site with their email address), and Facebook itself has claimed that social authentication increases registration by 30-200%. (...) But is that promise worth the price of losing direct access to your customers’ contact information and profiling information — or for that matter, direct access to customers themselves?

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Social logins are very useful but they carry security and privacy concerns that every company must examine as they move to digitalize everything. In "Kill the password" (fmcs.digital/blog/kill-the-password-a-string-of-characters-wont-protect-you/), the author shows the impact of having multiple websites and applications connected with one another. This is a security concern that must be addressed, mitigated or at the very least highlighted so that everyone involved is aware of the risks and the benefits.
