Duration: 1 hour

Living in an era of countless hackers and various insider threats, it is important to know how to protect your information. Join us as we examine the criminal investigation of civilian intelligence analyst, Jonathan Pollard, who was convicted of stealing over 1 million pages of highly classified documents and sharing them with Israel.

PERSONAL INFO SECURITY / Study – U.S. Consumers Don’t Trust Any Industry To Keep Personal Data Safe

Cybersecurity Jobs | Information Assurance Jobs

Lack of consumer confidence is likely to impact brand engagement efforts.

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ A consumer study from Radius Global Market Research shows that U.S. consumers have little faith that companies are able to keep their person data safe. The sentiment crosses nearly all industries with consumers saying that the lack of trust will likely affect purchase habits.

"Ongoing security breaches have pushed the issue of online security to the top of consumers’ minds," says Radius GMR Director, Jamie Myers. "We set out to determine which industries were the most trusted among consumers when it comes to keeping data secure. In the end, those surveyed felt that no company in any industry is doing it well."

When the survey asked U.S. technology owners which industry is doing the best job at keeping their information safe, no clear leader emerged with "no industry" ranking the highest (29%). In looking at specific companies/brands across these different industries, most surveyed were unable to clearly identify a brand leader that does the best job in protecting and preventing identity theft/fraud.

In general financial websites out-perform other industries with just over 25% saying they do the "best job" in securing their personal information. At the other end of the spectrum, operating systems and social media sites are not perceived very highly with securing personal information.

"Consumers made it clear that a perception of poor security practices is reason enough to stop doing business with a brand," adds Myers. "Clearly it is not enough to have a good track record. In this environment brands must adjust communications to merchandise ongoing efforts in order to establish and keep trust."

Radius GMR’s online consumer study "Privacy & Security Issues Among U.S. Consumers" surveyed consumers who own or use regularly a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. A summary of survey results can be obtained by visiting www.radius-global.com.

Q+A – Intelligence Career Opportunities for International Citizens

Q+A – Intelligence Career Opportunities for International Citizens

Question

I am not a U.S. citizen. My question is how do I get recruited/headhunted for an intelligence job in the USA as a foreign citizen. I am not region/citizenship bound. Am flexible about career options.

Answer

As you may suspect, it is almost impossible to get into the field of traditional defense intelligence.

However, there are a number of areas that are international in focus and which are truly intelligence fields open to citizens of almost all countries.

These jobs are usually associated with major consulting firms such as KPMG, Booz-Allen, Parsons Corporation, Accenture, and others — many others that are smaller than the above.

There are also some very good professional organizations which are involved in intelligence activities outside of the defense and national security realm:

International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA)
Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP)

And if you have a strong defense background then follow the players that are winning the contracts and playing worldwide by following Defense Industry Daily — these are true international players.

You have asked a good question. Let me give it some more thought and try to identify some opportunities.

Q+A – Why do employers not train their employees to take on greater challenges?

Q+A – Why do employers not train their employees to take on greater challenges?

Question / Ask Your Question

If there is a shortage of IT skilled employees, why not invest and train the ones with some experience and really wanting to be trained, train them?

In my case, I want to get into Cyber Security, but I have to finish my CompTIA A+ and pass two tests before I can progress. I do not mind taking this path but I wonder why training the right people to take on new challenges is not an option pursed by employers?

===================

Answer

The simple answer is that companies generally expect their hires to be fully technically certified before hiring. This is regardless of skillset. You could be an accountant, baker, plumber, car mechanic, etc.

Part of this is due to insurance requirements — the work of uncertified employees is not covered. This is also due to human nature: a large number of folks just never complete training at a level equal to being fully technically competent. This means that employers must hire more folks than they really need in order to find those that will perform for them. Training costs also are difficult to pass on to customers.

It is a ‘come fully trained or not at all’ world these days.

Some good news: there are training and retraining funding and schooling available for many different kinds of professionals that need to change their career paths. This depends upon where you live and the current (un)employment rate. To find what is available in your area just add your state’s name to this Google search.

Facebook Users Take a Sharp Turn Toward Privacy – Trends in Facebook Usage

NEW YORK, NY /PRNewswire/ — On a social network where it is possible to share personal information with 850 million people worldwide, users are increasingly opting to do just the opposite. A study of 1.4 million Facebook members indicates a dramatic rise in demand for privacy, with the number of users choosing to hide their friend list up more than 200 percent over a 15-month period.  The research also reveals stronger privacy preferences among women and members with higher incomes.

Keith Ross, the Leonard J. Shustek Professor of Computer Science at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly), led the study as part of an ongoing inquiry into Internet privacy leaks and trends.

Ross and co-investigators Ratan Dey and Zubin Jelveh — both doctoral candidates at NYU-Poly — crawled the public profile pages of 1.4 million Facebook users in New York City in March 2010 and June 2011, noting which aspects of the profile were accessible and which were hidden.  The public profile is the page displayed when viewing the profile of someone with whom the searcher is not a designated Facebook friend. The amount of information available on the public page can be adjusted according to user preferences.

In March 2010, 17 percent of users in the sample hid their friend list from their public profile. Just 15 months later, 53 percent of users opted to make that list private.  Other aspects of the profile, including age, high school name and graduation year, network, relationship, gender, interests, hometown and current city, were also hidden with greater frequency in the later survey. In 2010, only 12 percent of the sampled users hid personal information in all of these categories. By 2011, that number jumped to 33 percent.

Ross credits a combination of social and policy factors for the shift in privacy preferences. “During the time of our research, Facebook implemented a major redesign in its privacy options, partly due to pressure generated by a huge uptick in media stories about the vulnerabilities of revealing personal information online,” explains Ross. “We believe that greater sensitivity and public awareness of privacy issues, combined with easier privacy options on Facebook, spurred more members to protect their information.”

Ross and his collaborators used information from the public profiles to extrapolate additional data points about Facebook users’ privacy preferences. Women in both samples were more private than men — as of June 2011, 55 percent of women restricted their personal information, versus 49 percent of men.

Data analysis also points to a potential correlation between income and privacy. Users in the wealthiest areas of New York, Manhattan specifically, were likeliest to hide their personal information. Among the other boroughs, Staten Island ranked second in privacy, followed by Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens.

While the profiles studied do not represent a random sample, the diverse demographics of New York City lead the researchers to believe that the increased privacy demands are indicative of general trends in the country and perhaps globally. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the largest analysis of Facebook users’ privacy preferences.

Ross will present these findings next month at the IEEE International Workshop on Security and Social Networking in Lugano, Switzerland.
