Tech News Hub: WEEKLY NEWS INSIGHTS
Welcome to our weekly news roundup, where we highlight our week's top stories.
We started the week discussing how MSP could be utilised by cloud security for every endpoint. With attacks ranging from malware/ransomware, phishing, zero-day attacks, and web-borne threats, MSPs need to begin leveraging and adopting all the tools at their disposal to combat such threats.
We also further discussed a claim alleging that Amazon breached competition law and caused its customers to pay higher prices. It states that any resident in the UK who made purchases on Amazon.co.uk or using the Amazon mobile app right from October 2016 is an eligible member of the claimant case. Amazon shoppers in the UK may have a share of £900m in compensation once the legal claim is submitted.
In the world of Cybersecurity; it's the month of Cybersecurity awareness. Cybersecurity Professionals also report that a general lack of security awareness among their organisation's staff and a lack of buy-in regarding security best practices at the executive level contribute to increased stress. Empowering more end users can be the solution to Cybersecurity job gaps, as tech companies like Microsoft are announcing plans to add millions of new Cybersecurity jobs worldwide.
The US Whitehouse has brought up cybersecurity literacy and education of individuals on the fundamentals of safe online conduct at all levels. America's Cybersecurity Project Initiative involves several phrases that everyone who has read about cybersecurity would have heard about boosting resilience, raising awareness, fending off ransomware assaults, etc.
Also, in the world of Cybersecurity, a Server Misconfiguration on Microsoft results in companies' data leaks. The breach was not the consequence of a security vulnerability but of an unintended misconfiguration on an endpoint that no one in the Microsoft ecosystem was using. The security mistake left an endpoint publicly available over the internet.
Next, we wrote about the search engine company Google which launched a UK version of an app that allows users to interact with artificial intelligence systems. Google wants feedback on how Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) performs.
Our last story; Law enforcement agencies worldwide have been troubled by the decentralised structure of digital assets. Following a string of attacks that shook the digital market industry, the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) established a Specialized Unit, Interpol, to clamp down on illegal digital assets.
