Mahmoud El Tabarane, Head of Operations at InfoWatch, participated in a panel discussion on “What are the best practices when dealing with data privacy?” and emphasized how vital the human factor was:
“You cannot protect data without knowing what the data is. You need to understand what type of data you have and who has access to it. The human factor is, we all are humans, we can make mistakes. You need to make your employees aware of how to handle data. You need to invest in the human factor more than you invest in a solution”.

H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan awards Accessible Government Service Best M-Government Award (The best mobile application for rendering state and municipal services) to Russia State Services (Gosuslugi) during the World Government Summit - القمة العالمية للحكومات in Dubai.

The Russian project was represented by the delegation led by the Deputy Minister of The Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation Минкомсвязь России, Mikhail Mamonov, Consul General of the Russian Federation in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, Oleg Fomin and Director of E-Government of Rostelecom, Mikhail Bondarenko.

Kristina Tantsyura, Managing Director InfoWatch Gulf, attended as a member of the Russian delegation.

In 2017, the Russian application entered the top three of the best international mobile applications.

The App is a centralized government platform that allows more than 10 million users to access government services through the mobile app (e.g. taxes, driver license, passport application, and child registration). Users paying for government services or fines through the app will receive a significant discount (30%-50%) on their total fees. The app is also tailored to each region in Russia to match the services offered to the users’ needs. The clean and user-friendly interface allows citizens to access government services at the touch of a button.

According to the preliminary findings of InfoWatch Analytical Center, in 2018, banks, finance and insurance companies managed to stop the general growth of personal, payment, and other confidential data breaches, but at the same time suffered more leaks caused by hackers.

This is a digest of the top data leaks from banks, finance and insurance companies in 2018, prepared by InfoWatch Analytical Center.

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia admitted that it had lost backup data affecting 19.8 million accounts opened by 12 million people, or half the population of Australia. It turns out that, during the decommissioning of an outdated data center in 2016, the bank’s contractor Fuji Xerox lost two unencrypted magnetic tape drives that contained customer names, addresses, account numbers and transaction details covering a 16-year period between 2000 and 2016. The tapes seem to have fallen out of the car on the way to a disposal site.

Government Payment Service, the company that enables online payments for 2,300 U.S. state and local governments across 35 states, inadvertently made available information on more than 14 million customers from as long as six years ago, including names, addresses, phone numbers, and the last four digits of credit card numbers. According to cyber experts, people were able to view millions of customer records just by altering digits in the Web address that displayed receipts.

SunTrust Bank (U.S.) reported the potential data breach caused by its former employee who accessed its contact lists containing information like names, addresses, and account balances of approximately 1.5 million customers and then attempted to print the information and give it to a “criminal third party.”

Liberty, one of the largest financial services providers in the Republic of South Africa, said that it had been hit by an IT systems breach that compromised personal data of almost a million of its customers, including names, ID numbers, mobile numbers, e-mail addresses, and unencrypted passwords.

In 2018, cryptocurrency exchanges most suffered from serious financial losses. Many such start-ups seem to be far behind traditional financial service providers when it comes to security. Thus, Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck, one of the largest in the country, became the victim of a massive hack resulting in a loss of $534 million. The hackers managed to steal the private key for the hot wallet where NEM coins were stored, enabling them to drain the funds. Italy-based cryptocurrency exchange desk BitGrail reported that hackers had made off with $195 million worth of Nano (XRB) coins.

Data Protection Day is observed around the world every year on 28 January to encourage consumers to become more conscious of looking after their data.

In the 12 years since the first day of personal data protection was launched by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, InfoWatch recorded 14 300 confidential information leaks from commercial companies and government organizations.

In total, more than 30 billion records of confidential information have been compromised between 2007 and 2019, including more than 20 billion over the past two years.

Yahoo saw an astonishing 3 billion user accounts stolen in 2013, and a year later 145 million eBay records suffered a similar fate. As did 1.1 billion records from Aadhaar, the Indian government ID database, in 2017, and 145 million Equifax accounts in 2017.

In April 2018, Dubai-based ride-hailing app Careem announced that it had experienced a breach in January this year, compromising the data of 14 million users.

No matter the day of the year, make sure that every day is Data Privacy and Protection Day.

RETAIL & HORECA MOSTLY EXPOSED TO PAYMENT DATA LEAKS GLOBALLY

Following the analysis of over 300 incidents that occurred in 2016-2017, InfoWatch experts found out that more than 100 million data records were compromised in these sectors, with the number of payment data breaches soaring in 2017 to reach 60% (vs. 40% in 2016) — the highest share of financial data leaks among all sectors in the world.

External attacks accounted for 55% of global incidents in the sectors under review, while insiders were behind 45% of breaches, with 70% and some 50% of all such cases involving financial information leaks, respectively. The most sensitive information (trade secrets and know-how) was leaked by employees five times more often than by external offenders.

Almost three in four Middle East organisations that have not yet moved their digital estates and IT environments to the cloud, plan to do so in 2019, a Microsoft survey has revealed.

Almost two in five Middle East organisations (39%) have already adopted AI solutions and more than one third (37%) are planning to adopt in 2019.

Attitudes towards the security of third-party datacenters have also progressed. Findings on cybersecurity reveal a troubling threat landscape from which migrating organisations appear eager to escape. Some 63% of respondents said their company lost either productivity or data to a cyber incident in 2018; 46% of these victims were affected more than once; and almost one in 10 victims reported incidents “once a week or more”.

Three-fourth of UAE consumers are willing to share data despite cybercrime threats.

Globally, more than 50% of consumers expressed anxiety about identity theft, including hacking of financial, medical or other personal information, KPMG says in its latest survey.

UAE consumers are more likely to share their data if they expect good value out of the deal.
