    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Officials say there has been a data breach at Huntington Hospital. The hospital notified about 13,000 patients that their personal information was illegally accessed. Administrators said a night shift employee had allegedly improperly accessed electronic medical patient records between October 2018 and February 2019. That hospital worker has since been fired and is charged with a criminal HIPAA violation.
    SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — The personal data of 2,347 clients of three Sonoma County agencies may have been exposed during a breach of a county contractor’s network, county officials said Wednesday. An August ransomware attack on the network of Seneca Family of Agencies may have exposed vital personal data including names, social security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, diagnosis and treatment information, the county said. Seneca provides mental health, counseling and family engagement services for the county Human Services Department, Health Services Department and Probation Department. The county said there is no evidence that clients’ personal data has been misused as a result of the breach but, as a precaution, Seneca is notifying county clients whose data was stored on its network. The county’s computer systems were not attacked or compromised during the incident. The county took immediate action to secure clients’ data when it was notified of the breach. Seneca is providing potentially impacted individuals with 12 months of free credit monitoring and identity protection services. To enroll, clients can call (855) 675-2841 Monday through Friday (except U.S. holidays),...
    BRUSSELS (AP) — Concerned by the misuse of political advertising to undermine elections, the European Union on Thursday unveiled plans to help people better understand when they are seeing such ads online and who is responsible for them. The proposals, aimed at ensuring fair and transparent polls or referendums, would also ban political targeting and “amplification techniques” used to reach a wider audience if they use sensitive personal data like ethnic origin, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation without a citizen’s permission. “People must know why they are seeing an ad, who paid for it, how much, what micro-targeting criteria were used. New technologies should be tools for emancipation, not for manipulation,” said European Commission Vice-President Vera Jourova. The commission, the EU’s executive branch, hopes that the 27 member countries and the European Parliament will have debated and endorsed the proposals in national law by 2023, in time for Europe-wide elections the following year. Political parties, organizations and companies would face fines if they failed to comply. Under the plan, political ads would have to be clearly labelled, and prominently display...
    WHATSAPP users have been urged to install the latest update after privacy concerns were raised about personal data being shared with Facebook. The forthcoming update includes a new privacy feature making it easier for the user to avoid certain contacts or hide information from specific users. 2WhatsApp users should install the new update of the app when it is released Earlier this year WhatsApp faced a backlash after it announced it was making changes to its privacy policy and also stated it would be sharing user data with its parent company Facebook, now known as Meta. Many users feared that their conversations might also be shared. The update adds a new option to the last seen privacy setting, according to WABetaInfo. Before the new update, users had the option to show their status to everyone, their contacts or to no one at all. It now has an additional ‘my contacts except…’ option, which lets users specify certain contacts they don’t want to see their last seen status.

The online brokerage, which has about 18.9 million retail clients, announced Monday that a Nov. 3 data breach resulted in various information about 7 million customers being exposed. For 5 million of them, email address were accessed, and another 2 million had their full names revealed.

The first option is to freeze your credit report, which generally blocks outside access to your file. This means a scammer can't use your personal information to get a...
    Andy Yen, the CEO and founder of the encrypted email service ProtonMail recently warned against the privacy issues relating to Mark Zuckerberg’s digital “metaverse.” Yen didn’t hold back, saying: “Facebook talks about privacy because it’s a PR issue for them. At the end of the day, their business model revolves on taking your data and monetizing it. So there is fundamentally always going to be a conflict between what they say and what they actually have to do to make money.” Newsweek reports that Andy Yen, the CEO and founder of the encrypted email service ProtonMail, recently warned against trusting Mark Zuckerberg’s new “metaverse.” Zuckerberg has previously stated that “Privacy and safety need to be built into the metaverse from day one,” but Yen is skeptical.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Break up Big Tech? How about shrinking the tech companies’ shield against liability in cases where the content they push to users causes harm? Or creating a new regulator to strictly oversee the industry? Those ideas have captured official attention in the U.S., Europe, U.K. and Australia as controversy has enveloped Facebook — which on Thursday renamed itself Meta — Google, Amazon and other giants. Revelations of deep-seated problems surfaced by former Facebook product manager Frances Haugen, buttressed by a trove of internal company documents, have lent momentum to legislative and regulatory efforts. But while regulators are still considering major moves such as breaking up some companies or limiting their acquisitions, the most realistic changes may be more tangible and less grandly ambitious. And also the kind of thing people might actually see popping up in their social feeds. So lawmakers are getting creative as they introduce a slew of bills intended to take Big Tech down a peg. One bill proposes an “eraser button” that would let parents instantly delete all personal information collected...
    EXPERTS have issued a stark warning to Facebook users after it was revealed that the network “secretly” takes personal data. The social networking site has previously come under fire over its “invasive” security and privacy policy, amid renewed calls for users to delete the app. 2Experts have called for users to delete the Facebook app after reports that the network 'secretly' takes personal dataCredit: Alamy Forbes reports that Facebook still captures data from your photos and your IP address, even if you update your settings “never” to track your location. And now researchers have warned that Facebook has gone even further via the use of an accelerometer to “harvest” specific data. They claim that the function can easily be used to monitor your activities or behaviours at times of day, in particular places, or when interacting with its apps and services. Furthermore, the data can apparently even match you with people nearby - leaving a numbered of unanswered questions. Speaking to the outlet, cyber-security expert Zak Doffman, said: “Just like the photo location data, the most serious issue here is...
    A group of hackers has gained access to telecommunications infrastructure and is retrieving personal information and communications records, according to a report released Tuesday by cybersecurity company CrowdStrike. The group, known as “LightBasin,” has operated since at least 2016 and is “utilizing scanning/packet-capture tools to retrieve highly specific information from mobile communication infrastructure, such as subscriber information and call metadata,” according to a report written by Jamie Harris and Dan Mayer at CrowdStrike. (RELATED: Neiman Marcus Hacked, Exposing Personal Data Of Up To 4.6 Million Customers) Rather than hacking individual devices, the hackers are infiltrating global telecommunications networks to access personal data, according to the report.

    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more A study released in August revealed that air pollution may not always come from the places that we think it comes from. A test was conducted to see how much air pollution was in New York City. Scientists expected to see high reads from the bumper to bumper traffic, but instead picked up a variety of air pollutants from paint, deodorant, personal care products, and perfumes. All of these products create volatile organic compounds, which turn into serious and dangerous air pollution. Many of these products are petroleum-based and evaporate from the skin into the air around us. This information could be a breakthrough in how we tackle air pollution, now that we know where so many of the most common pollutants are coming from. Scientists advised people to try to avoid petroleum-based products and instead use water-based ones. They also say to look for products without a scent. As a rule of thumb, if you can smell a fragrance, the product can cause pollutants to go into the air....
    GOOGLE collects an alarming amount of personal data from users - but there are ways to protect yourself. The tech giant announced in 2020 that its accounts will automatically delete private data for you after 18 months. 1Cyber security experts have offered many tips for bolstering protection from Google's tracking and data collection practicesCredit: SOPA Images/LightRocket via Gett But cyber security experts have offered many tips for bolstering protection from Google's tracking and data collection practices. Top tips include modifying account settings to limit the data Google collects on your account and using third-party apps to keep your details locked down. The most important advice experts have for users is to understand what kind of information - and how much - Google is tracking for them. Keeping a close eye on personal data collected by Google has become even more crucial in recent weeks. Last month, the company issued an urgent warning about a security flaw in the Chrome app which could put users at risk of "surveillance, manipulation and abuse" by hackers. It was revealed...
    According to a privacy research firm, the personal data of more than 1.5 billion Facebook users has been found for sale on a hacker forum.

    THE lives of more than 250 Afghan interpreters are at risk after the blundering Ministry of Defence copied their personal details into an email. Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has demanded a probe into the botch-up, with one interpreter warning it could "cost lives" in Afghanistan. 2Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has ordered an investigation after the email botch-upCredit: Alamy 2The interpreters are in fear of their lives after the Taliban took over AfghanistanCredit: The Mega Agency The data breach involved the secret email addresses of dozens of Afghan interpreters who worked for the British forces, said BBC News. It happened when the MoD asked more than 250 interpreters seeking relocation to the UK for an update on their situation. But they were all mistakenly copied into an email from defence officials. Some of the email addresses even had photos attached, revealing what they look like. And as they are still stuck in Afghanistan after the UK’s abrupt military withdrawal, 'many' of the interpreters remain in fear of their lives, hiding from the Taliban, the broadcaster added. One interpreter warned: "This mistake...
    Most Americans don’t believe their personal information is secure online and aren’t satisfied with the federal government’s efforts to protect it, according to a poll. The poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MeriTalk shows that 64% of Americans say their social media activity is not very or not at all secure. About as many have the same security doubts about online information revealing their physical location. Half of Americans believe their private text conversations lack security. And they’re not just concerned. They want something done about it. Nearly three-quarters of Americans say they support establishing national standards for how companies can collect, process and share personal data. “What is surprising to me is that there is a great deal of support for more government action to protect data privacy,” said Jennifer Benz, deputy director of the AP-NORC Center. “And it’s bipartisan support.” But after years of stalled efforts toward stricter data privacy laws that could hold big companies accountable for all the personal data they collect and share, the poll also indicates that Americans don’t...
                        According to Delta Airlines’ privacy policy, the Chinese communist government collects personal information of passengers who use the airline to travel to China. This, according to a new article in The Federalist. “Your personal data will be collected and processed in accordance with Cybersecurity Law of China that became effective in June 2017 … and any other laws and regulations of China that govern this area,” the policy reads. “Any processing of personal data that we perform is in accordance with the provisions of the privacy laws in China, and this data may only be used for the limited purposes discussed in this section. ” The agreement, The Federalist went on to report, also details certain passenger information that Chinese government authorities require, including birthday, sex, “postal address, address while staying in the United States, and email address,” and “biometric information (such as finger, face, voice, or iris).” The Georgia Star News’ attempts to contact Delta Airlines’ communications staff on Monday were unsuccessful. The Federalist reported that Delta...
    A majority of U.S. voters favor a tax on the profits that Big Tech companies generate from the collection of personal user data in order to reduce the incentive to collect this type of data unfairly, according to a poll released Monday. The findings are particularly relevant because of the introduction of legislation in New York state that would provide New Yorkers "compensation for the free labor they provide to big tech companies," said a press release for the bill, referring to companies such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. In total, 63% of voters support such a new tax, including 72% of Democrats and 56% of Republicans, according to a new poll by Data for Progress, a liberal polling firm. The poll of 1,186 likely voters was conducted nationally in late July using web panel respondents, with a margin of error of ±3 percentage points.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Texas has started publicly publishing online the names of companies who have consumer personal information stolen in cyberattacks. On September 1, the Texas Attorney General’s Office began publishing online data breaches that impact 250 Texans or more. READ MORE: A Man Anyone Would Want To Be More Like: Dallas Fire-Rescue 40-Year Veteran David Leos Laid To Rest The company name, type of personal information stolen, and how many Texans affected will be listed on the state website for anyone to see. According to the new law, notifications must be uploaded to the website within 30 days of being reported to the state. Listings will remain in place for one year then removed as long as the company does not suffer another data breach. Under current Texas law, companies have 60 days from detection of a data breach to notify the state Attorney General. “Companies are not going to be big fans of this,” said Gary Davis, CEO of the Plano-based cybersecurity company, Intrusion. “I don’t think they legislated it to make it harder for businesses.

    Facebook controls 85% of the personal social networking market thanks to its acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it an unlawful monopoly that has hurt consumers and competitors, the Federal Trade Commission argued in court documents released Wednesday. The commission's analysis of Facebook's user metrics is critical to its case for breaking up Facebook. A federal judge rejected the commission's first antitrust lawsuit against Facebook earlier this year, saying that the FTC hadn't made a persuasive case regarding the company's dominant market share and unfair monopolistic behavior. The tech giant's anti-competitive behavior has hurt the social media market by significantly reducing innovation, quality improvements, and consumer choice in regards to advertising and privacy options, the trade commission said in a newly released version of its antitrust complaint against the company. "Facebook has hindered, suppressed, and deterred the emergence and growth of rival personal social networking providers and unlawfully maintained its monopoly in the U.S. personal social networking market through means other than competition on the merits," the trade commission said in its court filing.

                      by Ailan Evans  European Union regulators imposed a $265 million fine on Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp on Thursday for failing to adequately inform consumers what it did with their data. The fine, issued by the Data Protection Commission (DPC), related to WhatsApp’s failure to provide consumers with certain information about how it shared their personal data with other Facebook-owned companies, according to the agency’s announcement. This omission by WhatsApp violated the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the EU’s data protection and privacy law governing how tech companies collect and share user information. “WhatsApp has discharged its GDPR transparency obligations with regard to the provision of information and the transparency of that information to both users and non-users of WhatsApp’s service,” the agency said in the announcement. One of the GDPR’s provisions states that tech companies, like WhatsApp, that collect personal information must tell users how they intend to use this personal information as well as the legal basis therefor. Regulators found that WhatsApp did not sufficiently abide by its obligations in its own Privacy Policy, in turn...
    DALLAS (AP) — A data breach at the Dallas public school system earlier this month exposed the personal information of students, parents, teachers and staff dating to 2010, system officials revealed Thursday. In statements posted to its website Thursday, the Dallas Independent School District said it learned of the breach on Aug. 8. Since then, the district says it has been investigating and working to contain the exposure before making it public. According to the website statements, an unauthorized third party downloaded the data and stored it temporarily on an encrypted cloud storage site. Social Security numbers, birth dates, contact information and grades were among the data exposed. The district said it had not received any reports of fraud or identity theft due to the data breach. It planned to open a hotline Friday to answer questions of those affected and help them set up credit monitoring. The district is the second-largest in Texas, ranking behind only the Houston Independent School District. The Dallas district employs 22,222 staff members and enrolled 153,861 students in 230 schools, according to its website....

    The Taliban have obtained the biometric data of thousands of Afghans who helped the United States, according to a Republican congressman, who said Joe Biden will have blood on his hands if the data is used to hunt down Afghan allies.  Jim Banks, who represents Indiana in the House, attacked Joe Biden on Tuesday for the fact that a significant amount of weaponry was left in Afghanistan after the U.S. troops withdrew. A Navy reservist who served in Afghanistan in 2014 and 2015, while a state senator, Banks told a press conference on Capitol Hill that the Taliban had obtained a large cache of arms and equipment left behind by the U.S. But, he added, most 'unfathomable to me and so many others' was the biometric database, which was harvested and stored on Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment (HIIDE) devices to help ID locals working with the coalition.  Congressman Jim Banks on Tuesday said it was 'unfathomable' to him how the Taliban had managed to obtain the HIIDE devices - Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment A HIIDE...

    Personal data of 38 million people has been exposed following a breach of Microsoft's Power Apps. The data includes social security and phone numbers, COVID vaccination status and home addresses. Companies affected by the breach include American Airlines, New York City public schools, Ford, the Maryland Department of Health, and the New York City Municipal Transportation Authority. It was unclear how the breach happened, or who was responsible.  Researchers at cybersecurity firm UpGuard found the breaches in May. They do not think anyone's data has been fraudulently used, so far.  Microsoft's Power Apps have been affected by the breach, which saw the data of 38 million people exposed  The exposed data was all stored in Microsoft's Power Apps portal service, Wired reported. Power Apps is a development platform that makes it easy to create web or mobile apps for external use.  If you need to spin up a vaccine appointment sign-up site quickly during, say, a pandemic, Power Apps portals can generate both the public-facing site and the data management backend. 
    By Josh Horwitz SHANGHAI, Aug 20 (.) – China’s National People’s Congress passed a law on Friday to protect the privacy of online user data and will implement the policy from Nov. 1, according to state media Xinhua. The passage of the law completes another pillar in the country’s efforts to regulate cyberspace and is expected to add more requirements to the country’s businesses. China has instructed its tech giants to ensure more secure storage of user data, amid public complaints about mismanagement and misuse that have led to violations of user privacy. The law establishes that the processing of personal information must have a clear and reasonable purpose and will be limited to the “minimum scope necessary to achieve the management objectives” of the data. It also sets out the conditions for companies to collect personal data, including obtaining the consent of the individual, as well as guidelines to ensure data protection when transferred out of the country. The law also requires that those responsible for handling personal information designate a person in charge of the protection of personal...

    China passed a law Friday designed to protect citizens’ data privacy and restrict collection of personal information. The Personal Information Protection Law, approved by China’s National People’s Congress, forces companies collecting personal data to obtain consent from users, state-run news agency Xinhua reported. The law also allows users to opt out of marketing strategies that use their personal information and shuts down apps that illegally process data. Though the final version has not yet been published, a previous draft of the law forbade companies from refusing services to users who opt out of data collection, and allowed individuals to request their personal data from companies, according to CNBC. However, the law does not institute “legal limits on government surveillance,” Karman Lucero, a fellow at the Yale Law School Paul Tsai China Center, told The Wall Street Journal. “Chinese civil society still has very limited means of ‘watching the watchmen,’” Lucero said.
