Defense IT industry recommends Navy ships use behavioral biometrics technology

Defense industry IT companies have recommended that the Navy use cybersecurity solutions such as behavioral biometrics technology to detect and prevent sea-based cyberattacks, according to a report by Defenses Systems. The recommendations come in the midst of the Navy’s official investigation into what triggered the recent collision between a U.S. destroyer and Liberian-flagged merchant vessel, which lead to the deaths of 10 Navy sailors aboard the USS John McCain. The Navy has not yet determined whether the incident was the

Context for connections: improving security with behavioral biometrics

This is a guest post by Ethan Ayer, CEO of Resilient Network Systems. With faceprints, voiceprints and iris scans beginning to replace passwords in everything from police work to amusement park admission, behavioral biometrics is becoming one of IT security’s hottest trends. 2017 may finally be the year that it delivers on its hype. With promising contenders in Scandinavia to stateside biometrics companies being snapped up by the likes of MasterCard and others, the security race is on as organizations

Juniper Research projects retailers could lose $71B in card-not-present fraud

Juniper Research has published new research which forecasts that retailers could lose $71 billion globally from fraudulent CNP (card-not-present) transactions over the next five years. The “Online Payment Fraud: Emerging Threats, Key Vertical Strategies & Market Forecasts 2017-2022” report found that several factors including the United States’ shift to EMV cards, delays in 3DS 2.0 (3D-Secure) and click-and-collect fraud were key drivers behind the increasing loss. The research found that many merchants still perceive combatting fraud as too expensive, and

Defense department developing multifactor authentication system

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) High-Assurance Cyber Military Systems (HACMS) program is developing technology for the creation of safe and secure cyber-physical systems, according to a report by American Security Today.
