Privacy and cybersecurity issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, finance, health and medical records – to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and online security, often without our situational awareness. Five highlights from this week: A Vending Machine Error Revealed Secret Face Recognition Tech; The Impact of Technology on the Workplace: 2024 Report; A government watchdog hacked a US federal agency to stress-test its cloud security; Using AI to fight fraud is paying off, Treasury says; and These Video Doorbells Have Terrible Security.
