Kaspersky Lab : L’après-Noël : sécuriser ses échanges de cadeaux et l’achats de produits « d’occasion »

1 Français sur 2 est prêt à revendre sur Internet un ou plusieurs cadeaux reçus pour Noël (livres, DVD, smartphones et tablettes sont les principaux présents revendus sur la toile), selon une étude menée par OpinionWay pour PriceMinister1.
Depuis quelques années déjà, cette tendance connait un véritable succès. Selon une étude menée par TNS Sofres pour eBay2, le pic de revente cette année est attendu le 7 janvier 2013.
Dans cette frénésie d’achats et de reventes, il est d’autant plus essentiel de ne pas oublier les bons réflexes pour éviter les principaux pièges tels que le « phishing ». En effet, en période de fêtes, le vol de données et l’usurpation d’identité sont monnaie courante.

En outre, selon une récente enquête réalisée pour Kaspersky Lab3, aussi incroyable que cela puisse paraître, un participant sur trois (33%) conserve ses coordonnées bancaires sur son ordinateur domestique.

Pourtant :

  • 62% des utilisateurs considèrent la fuite de données financières comme la menace la plus dangereuse.
  • 47 % estiment que le vol d’informations bancaires lors d’achat en ligne est le problème le plus préoccupant lorsque l’on se rend sur internet.
  • 57 % des Français estiment qu’ils ne sont pas suffisamment outillés pour faire face aux menaces de sécurité sur internet.

Ainsi, les experts des laboratoires Kaspersky Lab conseillent fortement, lors des achats en ligne, de :

  • Ne pas céder trop vite à la tentation. Si une affaire paraît trop bonne pour être vraie, c’est qu’elle ne l’est sans doute pas.
  • Vérifier la présence du cadenas et de la mention https dans la barre d’adresse d’un site pour une transaction sécurisée.
  • Mettre à jour régulièrement ses logiciels afin de se protéger contre les cybermenaces déjà identifiées.
  • Créer des mots de passe complexes et des réponses aux questions de « sécurité » « hors du commun » afin de protéger ses données et ses boites mails. Le complément de sécurité Kaspersky Password Manager automatise entièrement la saisie de mots de passe et d’autres informations personnelles sur des sites Web ou des applications Windows.
  • Choisir une solution complète incluant des modules de protection bancaire spécifique tel que le clavier virtuel. Cette solution permet ainsi de limiter le « keylogging », processus d’intrusion qui enregistre les frappes au clavier et l'apparition du caractère à l'écran.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
