How to secure your smart home | Avast

We live in a connected world. Globally, we’ve become a tighter community, while locally, we’ve become more global. The internet has delivered on convenience, allowing anyone with a connection to see, learn about, and communicate with any individual or business on the planet. This convenience is coupled with virtually every new tech product rolling off the line, and our homes are quickly filling up with an ever-growing universe of IoT devices.

AT&T, Sprint, Verizon to Stop Sharing Customer Location Data With Third Parties

In the wake of a scandal involving third-party companies leaking or selling precise, real-time location data on virtually all Americans who own a mobile phone, the four major wireless carriers have responded to requests from a U.S. senator for more details about how the carriers are managing access to this extremely sensitive information. While three out of four providers said they had cancelled data sharing agreements with some of the offending companies, only one -- Verizon -- pledged to terminate all of them and initiate a wholesale review of their location data-sharing practices.

Human Resources Firm ComplyRight Breached

Cloud-based human resources company ComplyRight said this week that a security breach of its Web site may have jeopardized sensitive consumer information -- including names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and Social Security numbers -- from tax forms submitted by the company's thousands of clients on behalf of employees.
Cloud-based human resources company ComplyRight said this week that a security breach of its Web site may have jeopardized sensitive consumer information -- including names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and Social Security numbers -- from tax forms submitted by the company's clients on behalf of employees.

Pompano Beach, Fla-based ComplyRight began mailing breach notification letters to affected consumers late last week, but the form letters are extremely vague about the scope and cause of the breach. Indeed, many readers who received these letters wrote to KrebsOnSecurity asking for more information, as the company hadn't yet published any details about the breach on its Web site. Also, most of those folks said they'd never heard of ComplyRight and could not remember ever doing business with a company by that name.

The Company

“We’ve been able to develop expertise in different vertical markets,” says President Dave McPherson, who purchased the company in 1992. “For example, we have a solid reputation with the local Toyota, Volkswagen, and Audi dealerships for providing wireless connectivity for customer waiting rooms, integrating software for car programming devices, and securing company networks. All of our customers, no matter the type of business, expect strong protection to avoid downtime. If a breach happens, they would be unable to run their businesses.”
