UAV’s in Conventional Security: Will It Happen? | #TpromoCom #Drone #UAV #Security | The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) in conventional security is almost a given when you stand back and look at the solution itself and what it can do to assist corporations as well as municipalities. Possibly one of the biggest hurdles that lie ahead of us, however, is public perception of its use and the intent behind those using it.

The following are a collection of news items that center on the use of UAV’s (i.e. Drones) in a variety of settings. The first is an article in #SDMag that touches on the current state of the industry in conventional security. Frankly, it’s well done and thoroughly researched. Case studies provide an in-depth look at how it’s being used, and surprisingly enough, we learn from Ford Motors that their use of drones has more to do with assisting security personnel than replacing them. Take a look. –Al Colombo

Did the White House Use Drone Killing Technology? | #TpromoCom #WhiteHouse #Drone #Kill | At about 3 a.m. on Monday morning, a small quadcopter drone, or unmanned aerial vehicle, crashed on the White House lawn. White House officials said that the drone, by itself, was unarmed and didn’t represent a threat. Authorities quickly located the owner, a government employee, who has managed (so far at least) to convince the Secret Service that he made an innocent mistake flying his drone outside of the White House in the wee hours of the morning.

Tips to avoid card skimmers at gas stations

Tips to avoid card skimmers at gas stations | #TpromoCom #Skimmer #Fraud #Money | Skimmers on card readers at gas station pumps seem to be becoming more commonplace.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, “skimmers are illegal card readers attached to payment terminals. These card readers grab data off a credit or debit card’s magnetic stripe without your knowledge. Criminals sell the stolen data or use it to buy things online. You won’t know your information has been stolen until you get your statement or an overdraft notice.”

Online Payment Fraud Detection Spend to Reach $9.3 Billion by 2022, Driven by IoT and 3-D Secure

Online Payment Fraud Detection Spend to Reach $9.3 Billion by 2022, Driven by IoT and 3-D Secure | #TpromoCom #scam #FBI #IoT | A new study from Juniper Research has found that spend on online FDP (fraud detection and prevention) solutions is set to rise to $9.3 billion by 2022, an increase of 22% over this year’s anticipated spend.

The research found that perceptions of high software costs alongside relatively low awareness of effective solutions in the eCommerce space were slowing service uptake. Nevertheless, it predicted that several factors would prove instrumental in driving the market forward.  READ ON: Click Here

ONLINE PAYMENT FRAUD DETECTION SPEND TO REACH $9.3 BILLION BY 2022, DRIVEN BY IOT AND 3-D SECURE

Hampshire, UK: 25th July 2017: A new study from Juniper Research has found that spend on online FDP (fraud detection and prevention) solutions is set to rise to $9.3 billion by 2022, an increase of 22% over this year’s anticipated spend.

The research found that perceptions of high software costs alongside relatively low awareness of effective solutions in the eCommerce space were slowing service uptake. Nevertheless, it predicted that several factors would prove instrumental in driving the market forward.

Fraud Automation & New Services to Drive Spend

Juniper’s new research, Online Payment Fraud: Emerging Threats, Key Vertical Strategies & Market Forecasts 2017-2022, found that the growing threat of insecure IoT (Internet of Things) deviceswould be key in driving FDP spend. It cited the evolution of IoT botnets from DDoS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) weapons aimed at fraud automation tools as influencing this trend, owing to a requirement for better customer verification tools.

Meanwhile, Juniper predicted the launch of 3DS 2.0 (3-D Secure 2.0) would have a similar impact. It claimed 3DS 2.0 would both reduce fraud and result in fewer basket abandonments, if merchants invested in authentication solutions as part of an FDP strategy.

Finally, it cited the upcoming PSD2 (revised payment services directive) and the move to open banking APIs in Europe, North America and Asia as a further driver. “APIs expose a set of business logic rules, which by their nature are susceptible to abuse”, noted research author Steffen Sorrell. “This will drive banks and service providers to greater emphasis on protecting those APIs.”

Emerging Markets Remain Vulnerable

Juniper predicted that emerging markets, such as Latin America, Indian Subcontinent and Africa & Middle East would become key targets for banking and payments fraud.

Collectively, these regions will account for only 4% of global FDP spend in 2022. The research noted that stronger regulation to protect consumers as well as better consumer education in safer online practices were key issues to address.

The whitepaper, Future Fraud: 3 Key Battlegrounds in 2018, is available to download from the Juniper website together with further details of the full research.
