How to Build a Business Case for GRC Software

The role of today’s risk managers is clear: to close the gap between strategic-level initiatives and the operational risks faced at the activity level.

To do this, many organizations are adopting risk-based GRC programs – both at the request of senior management and to meet the expectations of regulators. A large number of these programs rely on spreadsheets and shared drives to manage information collected across departments and levels. But today’s GRC software solutions are proven…

How to shop securely with a Mobile Phone

“You can buy things with your phone!” No kidding! But imagine what the response would have been had you made this statement in 1984: “Off your meds, eh?”

Purchasing via the smartphone may very well eclipse the popularity of shopping via laptop. And cyber thieves know this. They’re counting on you to slip up.

  • Never click a link inside an e-mail, even if the subject line is a warning or alert to a fabulous sale. Cyber crooks know that the small…

Hackers don't play well with Kids' Toys

No company is immune from hackers—even a toy company. Hong Kong based VTech got hit by a hacker recently. This company makes techy educational toys for kids, and its database got breached.

Customers go to the Learning Lodge store and download content to their children’s VTech devices. The devices for downloading to are a tablet, watch and action camera.

Some customers’ private information—now in the hands…

Beware of those hackable Holiday Gifts

If you’re going to drone on and on about how you got hacked by a cyber thief, maybe it’s because you played with your new drone—you know, those rad little flying devices that hover via remote control over your street? Yes, they are hackable.

If you don’t have a drone, don’t be surprised if you get one as a gift this season, as Americans are spending tens and tens of millions of dollars on them.

First off, if you spot a drone, before you go, “Wow, cool, there’s…

Busted!: Large Identity Fraud Rings Fall Apart

A group of people who are actively collaborating to commit identity fraud is known as an identity fraud ring.

These rings work by members either stealing a victim’s identity or sharing personal information such as a date-of-birth or Social Security number. Though many fraud rings occur in large cities, there are a surprisingly high number of rings found in rural…

Detox The Uncertainty Paradox

The only certainty is uncertainty. The Uncertainty Paradox!

I finished last year writing about our tendency towards impulsiveness and our counter-tendency towards indecisiveness. Both are very real and are played out under different circumstances EXCEPT the underlying issue is ‘uncertainty’.

Impulsiveness is a problem because we fail to consider the uncertainties well enough while indecisiveness raises its ugly head because we can see all the uncertainties. The solution? A…
