Data is everything. In fact, thieves are now targeting consumer and business information rather than financial assets, simply because there is so much more value in data. Find out more about how GDPR is changing the way we all work with data in the midst of this Information age.
A great way to get in on the action.
No one is ready for GDPR
I read an article recently stating that no one is ready for GDPR, not even the regulators, This seems to be the case, despite a flurry of 'you have to give us more permissions' emails.https://www.theverge.com/2018/5/22/17378688/gdpr-general-data-protection-regulation-eu
AI based Hacking
Weaponizing AILast year, two data scientists from security firm ZeroFOX conducted an experiment to see who was better at getting Twitter users to click on malicious links, humans or an artificial intelligence. The researchers taught an AI to study the behavior of social network users, and then design and implement its own phishing bait. In tests, the artificial hacker was substantially better than its human competitors, composing and distributing more phishing tweets than humans, and with a substantially better conversion rate.The AI, named SNAP_R, sent simulated spear-phishing tweets to over 800 users at a rate of 6.75 tweets per minute, luring 275 victims. By contrast, Forbes staff writer Thomas Fox-Brewster, who participated in the experiment, was only able to pump out 1.075 tweets a minute, making just 129 attempts and luring in just 49 users.http://gizmodo.com/hackers-have-already-started-to-weaponize-artificial-in-1797688425
