PABlo created a new topic ' How Apps on Android Share Data with Facebook - Report' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

There's a Whole List of Popular Apps Sending Your Data Off to Facebook

Popular Android apps send off your data even if you never log in to Facebook with them.

The new study from Privacy International sheds light on a slew of popular Android apps that provide user data to Facebook without the explicit consent of users who don't necessarily have to be logged in to Facebook or even maintain an account to have their data snagged.

Of the 34 apps examined in the study, 20 were found to share data with Facebook, sometimes at the exact point of activating the app. The apps examined, which include the language study guide Duolingo and the travel-booking giant Kayak, were built using the open-source Facebook Software Development Kit (SDK). Sixty-one percent of the apps tested were found to transmit data back to Facebook "from the moment a user opens the app," according to the study.

PABlo created a new topic ' Women in Cyber Take the Spotlight' in the forum. 1 month ago

Women are key to solving the workforce shortage, which is expected to reach 3.5 million open jobs by 2022.

As the cybersecurity industry continues to struggle to meet a workforce gap – an estimated 3.5 million jobs are expected to remain unfilled by 2021 – it’s clear that encouraging women and those from diverse backgrounds to pursue careers in the field will be a key factor in staying ahead of the threat landscape. Changes at the RSA conference, scheduled for February in San Francisco, along with a handful of large companies stepping up to the plate with training and recruitment efforts, show that the industry may finally be getting serious about addressing the issue.

While diversity in general is an issue in tech, women are particularly underrepresented. They hold about 26 percent of tech jobs according to a research report by The American Association of University Women (AAUW), and in cybersecurity specifically that drops to just 11 percent of roles globally being held by women according to the (ISC)2 2017 Global Information Security Workforce: Women in Cyber Security study.

PABlo created a new topic ' Population Mountains' in the forum. 1 month ago

This is a story about how to perceive the population of cities.

Matt Daniels has created a way of showing where each dot on the map represents 1,000,000 square meters and the areas with the most people show as deeper shades of red. Then he shows another way to look at population, by growing each dot into a 3D block appearing as Population Mountains.

PABlo created a new topic ' Walmart Nation: Mapping the Largest Employers in the U.S.' in the forum. 2 months ago

This simple map shows the biggest employers in each state.
walmart-nation.jpg

In a recent edition of their ‘Chart of the Week’ feature, Visual Capitalist released a fascinating map of every state’s biggest employer.

While a lot of the data isn’t exactly mind-blowing (MGM is number one in Nevada, for example), what is surprising is Walmart’s absolute domination. While Amazon may rule supreme in online sales, a brick-and-mortar retail chain is America’s biggest private employer in almost half of the states (22, to be exact).

Walmart currently employs around 1.5 million people in the U.S. By comparison, Amazon has a little over 500,000 workers.

As you can see in the map, state universities make up the majority of the remaining areas in the country.

The data, compiled from 24/7 Wall Street, excludes public administrative bodies, like state governments.

PABlo created a new topic ' Cybersecurity Is About Much More Than Hacking' in the forum. 2 months ago

The field of cybersecurity is largely mysterious to those outside of it, even as it becomes more important than ever.

There is something tantalizing about a lone hacker using a single computer and a big brain to take down the bad guys or stick it to the man. The archetype of the hacker has a cultivated ethos of freedom, individuality, and subtle craftiness that cannot be denied. From the ’90s cult classic Hackers to the more modern (and realistic) Mr. Robot, the hacker has long held a special place in pop culture. Despite this fascination with hacking, hackers, and cyberwarfare, the field is poorly understood outside of industry professionals.

As the software industry continues to “eat the world,” the software security industry has grown alongside it. As more software is deployed, it stands to reason that more software is vulnerable to attack. Indeed, there is growing concern among professionals that cybersecurity firms are seriously understaffed, and there aren’t nearly enough of them to combat the growing number of cyberattacks. Making matters worse, the continued drive toward accelerated training programs for software developers means that more developers are deploying code who have not had any formal security training.
