  • Cashless Ambitions, Proceed with Caution

    Globally there is a growing movement towards becoming cashless societies. While these cashless ambitions offer numerous benefits, Kaspersky Lab suggests proceeding with caution, with an eye on tightening cybersecurity around the payment eco-system. One fundamental aspect of becoming a cashless society via digitalization is the increased adoption of online and mobile channels that has been a boon for perpetrators of fraud, specifically cyber-fraud. According to Forrester, there has been a 62% increase in payment fraud since Oct 2015. The increased touch points and the nature of those channels lends itself nicely to cyber fraud by masking and hijacking the identity of the mobile user. Consumers are demanding more seamless and…

  • Education through Shopping, Possible?

    Tuesday was a public holiday, and after Retna and I spent so much time at work, I decided to spend some time with daughter, thinking what we could do together.  Retna was down with really bad cough, so she skipped.

  • Fake Facebook sites

    In the first quarter of 2018, Kaspersky Lab’s anti-phishing technologies prevented more than 3.6 million attempts to visit fraudulent social network pages, of which 60% were fake Facebook pages. The results, according to Kaspersky Lab’s report, ‘Spam and phishing in Q1 2018’, demonstrate that cybercriminals are still doing what they can to get their hands on personal data. Social network phishing is a form of cybercrime that involves the theft of personal data from a victim’s social network account. The fraudster creates a copy of a social networking website (such as a fake Facebook page), and tries to lure unsuspecting victims to it, forcing them to give up their personal…
