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.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses.

Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.
