It seems like every day there’s news of another significant data breach, so here’s today’s: An internal investigation by the InterContinental Hotel Group, which owns Holiday Inn, has revealed that guests at more than a thousand of their hotels had their credit card details stolen. The company identi...
As Irving Berlin wrote in Happy Holiday, "If you're burdened down with trouble, if your nerves are wearing thin, park your load down the road, and come to Holiday Inn." May we add, "If you care about your credit, and you just wanna check in, try the hotel down the road, don't come to Holiday Inn." What can you do to protect your accounts when the vendors you deal with aren't as concerned about cybersecurity? With TickStream.KeyID protecting access, hackers can't use the data they steal.

New research suggests that the fingerprint security features on iPhones and Android devices can be easily fooled by so-called MasterPrint fakes.
Sir Francis Galton was a Victorian-era polymath (and eugenicist) who proposed a system of fingerprint identification in 1888. This same framework is used today by your cellphone fingerprint reader in 2017. Of course it doesn't meet the security needs of the modern world. Physical user behavior analysis, which has only been possible with advanced machine learning techniques, is built for today's cybersecurity challenges, and recognizes an actual person, not just a snapshot of a body part.

OK, this is officially a hot mess.
Boo-hoo for Yahoo. A few months ago, they admitted to one of the largest data breaches in history. Now comes a disclosure that hackers stole data on 1 billion user accounts, in a completely new, separate breach. That's 1,000,000,000. One-thousand million. Since the ITU estimates there are a little over 3 billion Internet users, this affects as much as 33% of ALL Internet users. Credit monitoring isn't going to fix this problem, and given how bad security is at these companies, are really going to trust them with your fingerprints, etc.? SMS/Phone tokens maybe? Well, NIST agrees those are a joke and have deemed them inadequate for Federal security. The only thing that can stop this very human problem is a solution that deals with humans. TickStream.KeyID uses your behavior when you type your username and password, so when the next billion passwords are stolen, you can relax: nobody is you, so they can't use what they have stolen. Devalue the hack. http://intensityanalytics.com/keyid
