Chinese AI unicorns target smart cities & public security | #TpromoCom #AI #Military #Chinese | According to research company, Memoori, in a bid to be at the forefront of the technology, China is pouring billions of dollars into companies that are researching AI technology, with video analytics and IoT platforms for smart cities being two of the prime applications.
Memoori estimates that China accounts for approx. 31% of global physical security revenues and says that it is now the biggest single country market for physical security products having increased its share by almost 50% in the last 7 years.
Video surveillance equipment has been the major contributor here, with the market growing rapidly through a boom in new construction and safe city projects in the public sector. Hundreds of cities in China, large and small, have jumped on the smart cities bandwagon, as advocated by Beijing, and have established budgets to support such initiatives.

Cisco ‘Knowingly’ Sold Hackable Video Surveillance System to U.S. Government | #TpromoCom #Hacker #VideoSurveillance #Legal | Cisco Systems has agreed to pay $8.6 million to settle a lawsuit that accused the company of knowingly selling video surveillance system containing severe security vulnerabilities to the U.S. federal and state government agencies.
The lawsuit began eight years ago, in the year 2011, when Cisco subcontractor turned whistleblower, James Glenn, accused Cisco of continue selling a video surveillance technology to federal agencies even after knowing that the software was vulnerable to multiple security flaws.
According to the court documents seen by The Hacker News, Glenn and one of his colleagues discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Cisco Video Surveillance Manager (VSM) suite in September 2008 and tried to report them to the company in October 2008. (click here)
Editor’s Note:For many years, I sought to warn security dealers of the risks of using specific brands recently named by the U.S. Government as being off limits to all federal applications. At the time, as the administrator with the CCTV Security Technicians Forum on Facebook, many members suggested that this only pertains to government use, which is correct, so they were going to continue selling those specific brands. My message to all dealers now as it was then, is that in the end analysis, if a CCTV system you sold and installed is hacked, and you knowingly sold it to the client, you could possibly be susceptible to legal action on the part of the client. –Al Colombo
U.S. Launched Cyber Attacks on Iran After Drone Shootdown | #TpromoCom #Cyber #Hacker #Drone | U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computers that crippled computers used to control rocket and missile launches, U.S. officials said Saturday.
US President Donald Trump is said to have secretly authorized US Cyber Command to carry out a retaliatory cyber attack on Iran in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone.
The action by U.S. Cyber Command was a demonstration of the U.S.’s increasingly mature cyber military capabilities and its more aggressive cyber strategy under the Trump administration.
5 Keys to Improve Your Cybersecurity | #TpromoCom #CyberSecurity #Internet #Security | Cybersecurity isn’t easy. If there was a product or service you could buy that would just magically solve all of your cybersecurity problems, everyone would buy that thing, and we could all rest easy.

Cybersecurity isn’t easy, and there is no magic solution, but there are a handful of things you can do that will greatly reduce your exposure to risk and significantly improve your security posture.

FBI Warns of Dangers in ‘Safe’ Websites | #TpromoCom #FBI #CyberSecurity #Cyber | Criminals are using TLS certificates to convince users that fraudulent sites are worthy of their trust.
One of the most common mechanisms used to secure web browser sessions — and to assure consumers that their transactions are secure — is also being used by criminals looking to gain victims’ trust in phishing campaigns. The FBI has issued a public service announcement defining the problem and urging individuals to go beyond simply trusting any “https” URL.
Browser publishers and website owners have waged successful campaigns to convince consumers to look for lock icons and the “https:” prefix as indicators that a website is encrypted and, therefore, secure. The problem, according to the FBI and security experts, is that many individuals incorrectly assume that an encrypted site is secure from every sort of security issue.
