Tel Aviv-based BioCatch has launched a “New Account Fraud Detection” solution which uses behavioral biometrics to detect, in real- time, when fraudsters use stolen /synthetic personal information to create a new account.
Trustwave security and compliance solutions experts are set to deliver
multiple briefings at “Black Hat 2010” in Las Vegas, July 28 through 29.
Delivered by members of “SpiderLabs” security team at Trustwave
responsible for incident response and forensics, penetration testing and
application security, and security research. David Byrne and Charles
Henderson will deliver “GWT Security: Donât Get Distracted by Bright
Shiny Objects,” which will look at common vulnerabilities in Googleâs
Web Toolkit (GWT). Nicholas Percoco and Jibran Ilyas will present
“Malware Freak Show 2010,” which will expand upon their initial Malware
Freak Show presentation delivered at DEFCON 17. Steve Ocepek and Charles
Henderson will deliver “Need a Hug? Iâm Secure,” which will look at the
ways manual penetration testing can help an organization protect their
environment from 0-day attacks, as well as more common vulnerabilities
like SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS).
Analysis from Frost & Sullivan indicate growth in the
contactless smartcard market. The market earned revenues of $408.9
million in 2005, and estimates this to reach $1,636.2 million in 2011.
Experts credit this growth largely in part to the e-passport segment
and intensified interoperability efforts. Use of the application is also
implemented in contactless micro-payments, mass transit applications, &
mobile payments. However,this growth has raised questions regarding
electronic security. Experts therefore are advocating the promotion of
awareness that contactless smart cards are implemented in a highly
secure method and can be relied on for secure transactions in payment.
Frost & Sullivan’s consulting company has been partnering with clients to
support development and innovation for more than 40 years.
A new report suggests that government and micropayment applications are boosting contactless smart card market growth. The study by Frost & Sullivan also found that the market earned revenues of $408.9 million in 2005 and is projected to reach $1.6 billion in 2011. The e-passport segment made big strides as interoperability efforts intensified, impelled by a heightened sense of urgency for more secure and sophisticated travel documents. However, the increasing use of contactless smart cards in payment, transit and ID raises questions from privacy and human rights advocate groups owing to the lack of and understanding about the technology and the confusion between RFID tags and contactless smart card. Frost & Sullivan says vendors and government agencies should initiate greater efforts to promote awareness and demonstrate that contactless smart cards can be implemented in a highly secure method and can be relied on for secure transactions in payment, health and identification.
