Ransomware Attacks in 2019: Nearly 1,000 Agencies, Hospitals Hit https://www.cbronline.com/news/ransomware-attacks-in-2019 via @wallabagapp
Among a series of initiatives proposed by Emsisoft to stem the flood of attacks is mandating disclosure. As the firm notes: “Currently, there is no legal requirement for public entities to report or disclose ransomware incidents and, as a result, relatively little data about the incidents is available. However, information such as the ransomware strain used, the attack vector, the vulnerability exploited and the financial impact of incidents is critical as it can help other organizations better understand the threat landscape and better assess their security priorities.
This is a very good start and a measure that should be implemented in all countries.

Everything in our society will be connected by this technology. Here’s how we protect it at a national and international level

• Sir Julian King is European commissioner for the Security Union

With the roll-out of 5G networks across Europe, we are fast approaching a technological tipping point. The installation of this essential digital plumbing is a once-in-a-generation event. And because that pipework will connect literally everything in our societies, security – more than price – should be the key criterion. This is a project where it is not only the quality of the components that is important, but also the credentials of the plumber.

All this means the risk associated with individual 5G equipment suppliers will need to be assessed more thoroughly: not only in terms of the overall quality of products and cybersecurity practices, but also the likelihood of a supplier being subject to interference from a non-European country. Inevitably, given its market share, China looms large.

Second, broad #cookie restrictions have led some industry participants to use workarounds like fingerprinting, an opaque #tracking technique that bypasses user choice and doesn’t allow reasonable transparency or control. Adoption of such workarounds represents a step back for user privacy, not a step forward.

Cyber attack compromised records on incomes, tax, health insurance and loans of millions of people

A 20-year-old cybersecurity worker has been arrested in Bulgaria and charged with hacking the personal and financial records of millions of taxpayers, as police continue to investigate the country’s biggest ever data breach.

Bulgaria’s NRA tax agency is facing a fine of up to €20m ($22.43m) over the hack, which was revealed this week and is thought to have compromised the records of nearly every working adult among the country’s population of 7 million.
