Hardware failure is a critical component of #digitalTransformation. Case in point: McDonalds outdoor Drive Thru menu board failures shows how difficult it can be to replace good old paper cardboard... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

McDonald’s Drive-Thrus are a baseline for the entire industry and seeing them install LCDs that basically blow up and fail totally is something everyone wants to understand.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: found this example of displays that fail at McDonalds drive-thrus. It highlights the fact that digital transformation often means deploying new hardware in places where there not in the past. And that creates a huge number of issues in terms of design, maintenance, operations, etc. Very often not a big deal is planned but very much a big deal if not accounted for in the beginning. So think about cooling, electricity availability, repairs, software version updates, security, content upload, etc.

The DIACC is pleased to publish the first iteration of the Directory of Products That Assess Identification Documents & Verify Identity. This Directory is designed to provide an overview of providers’ solutions which use government issued photo identification cards, combined with biometric facial scans, to establish Digital Identity.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: I missed that one when it was published last year. The document lists and compares tens of solutions and provides great overview of their characteristics. A great starting point.

Each of these distinct attacks had two things in common: China and Super Micro Computer Inc., a computer hardware maker in San Jose, California. They shared one other trait; U.S. spymasters discovered the manipulations but kept them largely secret as they tried to counter each one and learn more about China’s capabilities.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: fascinating stories of espionnage using modified hardware by China. Everyone knows China, Russia, USA, and others do it. Just painful to see it in writing. A consequence of global supply chains (read the book "the world is flat" to understand why this is so) and a strong business case to bring back some of the manufacturing in our country even if it makes some devices more expensive. Considering that we are carry with us smart phones and that they are all made in China, this is going to be tough. This article is also a great case for strong data encryption for all data at rest and in flight.

The ongoing breach affecting thousands of organizations that relied on backdoored products by network software firm SolarWinds may have jeopardized the privacy of countless sealed court documents on file with the U.S. federal court system, according to a memo released Wednesday by the Administrative Office (AO) of the U.S. Courts.

WHY IT MATTERS: all projects I work on is very concerned about privacy, especially when it comes to email communications. But if the computer systems that store the info are not secured, what's the point? Why do we even bother to accept cookies left and right when the info gets collected and stored in systems that can be breached.

An Absurdly Basic Bug Let Anyone Grab All of Parler's Data via @WIRED HT @NunoBarbeita @umlaut21 | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Parler lacked the most basic security measures that would have prevented the automated scraping of the site's data. It even ordered its posts by number in the site's URLs, so that anyone could have easily, programmatically downloaded the site's millions of posts. Parler's cardinal security sin is known as an insecure direct object reference,

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: security has become central in our age of digital transformation. Yet, it seems, most people are either unaware of basic security principles, or not willing to invest time or money to do it. And I am not even talking of doing it *well*. Just implementing proper security measure. In this case it affect Parler, which in itself I don't much care about (they deserve it for such a stupid mistake). But their lack of security impacts their users privacy as well. And that includes potentially millions of people (in the photo, 68000 video have been geolocated - too bad for keeping your anonymity ;-)

As remote work increases access management tool adoption, and security controls shift to identity, the ability to secure access with AM strategies aligned with continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment is paramount. Cost optimization for IT spending (e.g., AM) will also increase during 2021.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: as with most quadrants, the most interesting elements lie in the market definition and overview sections, not in the quadrant or ratings themselves. Notable in this quadrant is the fact that Amazon AWS, Salesforce and Google solutions have been excluded, as I assume they would be in top quadrant.

Interestingly, companies continue their move to SaaS solutions (no surprise) and focus on cost-reduction instead of customer satisfaction (weird, no?).

Studios Ramp Up Virtual Production Efforts Amid Pandemic-Era Filming - will it democratize the production of #fakeVideos as well? | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Girish Balakrishnan, Netflix's director of virtual production, says the workflow using Unreal offers "the ability to connect a DP in New York with VFX artists in London, a director in Los Angeles with an art department in Japan, and performance-capture talent with in-house animation supervisors." The goal is to streamline production across continents "while talent safely works from home."

We've reached the halfway mark of 2020, so it's a good time to take a look at the biggest data breaches of the year so far. And to clarify, when we say "big," we're talking about the importance of the story as much as the number of records exposed. Each of the data breaches on this list has something to teach businesses and consumers about how sensitive data is most likely to be exposed in 2020. (Credential stuffing is a major player, but don't count out the good old-fashioned human error!). Let's talk about 11 major breaches: what data was compromised, how it was exposed, and what we can learn from the story.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: every is working remotely and thus the potential for data breaches increases. This article highlights "how" the breach happened, which should provide good insights into the most common vulnerabilities...

The last few weeks, I've been spending my days helping victims recover from ransomware attacks. When doing this, restoration is the number one priority, and the motto becomes "as fast as you can". There have been some challenges along the way, and some "shocking" reveals when working with criminal software when expecting it to unlock your files. Here are some of the following use cases that Unit 221B encountered and the workarounds we applied to get a successful restoration.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a geeky article about the sad fact that hackers often spend more time working on their ransomware tools than on the tools to decrypt your files once you've paid the ransom. These guys at @unit221b seem legit, as per Brian Krebs who IS legit.

Imagine Yourself Being A Hacker #BeginnersGuide #weekendReading via @HackerNoon

Imagine Yourself Being A Hacker #BeginnersGuide #weekendReading via @HackerNoon | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Make no mistake, the knowledge of hacking is different from a hacker. A hacker is a person, not the skill. And the use of any knowledge is a personal choice and that choice isn’t universal. The same way some politicians are corrupt, some hackers are corrupt. The same way some politicians are good, some hackers are good also. You may be a Satoshi Nakamoto or an Albert Gonzalez, it is your choice. There is nothing wrong with the hacker knowledge. It is all about you. What You’ll Learn

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a nice reference on hackers and hacking along with a how-to guide if you want to get started! Digital transformation often requires a hacker's mindset to get around problems and think outside the box so this should be mandatory reading for anyone in the field! ;-)

#FacialRecognition is good but it is not perfect yet - in fact it is really bad for dark-skinned persons - The two-year fight to stop Amazon from selling face recognition to the #police via @MIT @F... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In June of 2018, in the midst of all the other letters demanding that the company stop police use of Rekognition, Raji and Buolamwini expanded the Gender Shades audit to encompass its performance. The results, published half a year later in a peer-reviewed paper, once again found huge technical inaccuracies. Rekognition was classifying the gender of dark-skinned women 31.4 percentage points less accurately than that of light-skinned men.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this article presents detailed numbers and references that show facial recognition is not accurate for dark skinned persons and that Amazon technology called rekognition is in use by law enforcement via ring doorbells...

Planting tiny #spy chips in hardware can cost as little as $200 - makes #encryption even more important as all work is going remote post #covid via @wired

Planting tiny #spy chips in hardware can cost as little as $200 - makes #encryption even more important as all work is going remote post #covid via @wired | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Proof-of-concept shows how easy it may be to hide malicious chips inside IT equipment.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: not very surprising that this exists. Snowden has shown that USA has been doing this to spy and thus expects China is doing the same in the 5G networking equipment. I say they probably all are doing it. One more argument in favor of strong encryption everywhere.

Passwords remain the weak link in #cybersecurity as *gasp* 123456 and variations remain the most used: why do we still use them and why are password generators not the norm?

Passwords remain the weak link in #cybersecurity as *gasp* 123456 and variations remain the most used: why do we still use them and why are password generators not the norm? | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Most cyber attacks and data breaches remain the result of weak passwords. So, why are we still using them?

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: I've been writing about this since the beginning of this blog and 7 years later I feel the need to remind everyone to use a password generator at home and at work. This is even more important as remote work means we will connect remotely to many more systems in the future.

State of #Cybersecurity 2020 shows that it is mostly a human resources problem - which is not going to be resolved soon and may bee exacerbated with enhanced remote work via @ISACA @CybersecurityHub | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The cybersecurity skills gap has been plaguing enterprises for years—but despite garnering much discussion and media coverage, little progress is being made.

State of Cybersecurity 2020 looks at questions such as:

  • How long does it take to fill a cybersecurity role with a qualified candidate?
  • What percentage of cybersecurity candidates are qualified for the role?
  • Is retention improving or worsening?
  • Which cybersecurity skills are in the highest demand?
  • Are HR teams informed partners in the search for qualified cybersecurity candidates?
  • Are cybersecurity teams becoming more gender-balanced, and are diversity programs doing enough to help?
  • What can companies do to staff up more quickly and find better-qualified candidates?
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this in depth study shows that cybersecurity issues in organizations stem from lack of skilled resources. With covid and remote work on the rise, the importance of cybersecurity is higher than it has ever been.
