Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, January 31, 2021
Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, health and medical records – to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and security, often without our situational awareness. Five highlights from this week: As U.S. Capitol investigators use facial recognition, it begs the question: Who owns our faces?; Fraudulent Applicants for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and a Surge in Criminal Referrals from Small Business Administration; U.S. Intelligence Claims China Wants to Steal Your DNA; Microsoft Deals Blow To Chrome With A Bunch Of Exciting New Edge Features; and Apple: Keep iPhone 12 and MagSafe Away From Medical Devices.
