The 5 Reasons WhatsApp Could be a National Security Risk

By Editorial Team on Oct 28, 2020 1:35:00 PM

Republished from October 2019

Last week I was asked by one of the 24-hour news networks to comment on camera about Jared Kushner’s use of WhatsApp for official White House business. The news network wanted my thoughts on the vulnerabilities and risks associated with this behavior. My first thought was that this was outside the core focus of what we do at GroupSense, but before I declined I gathered my thoughts on the topic. I quickly realized that this falls squarely in line with the GroupSense mission. Since the networks only want sound bites, I thought I would crystalize the concerns with greater context here. It is my intention to make this post apolitical, but in today’s climate, people are likely to trigger on the particular individual, so replace “Mr. Kushner” with “WH Staffer with critical national intelligence information”, and the risks remain.

Think Before You Share: How Tweets Fuel the Infodemic

Twitter is a fun and easy way to engage with pop culture and maybe even spark a spirited discussion. Many of us on twitter can retweet/share without thinking or researching what tweets truly say, causing them to spread quickly to a larger audience. But, the sad fact is, some tweets might end up being misinformation or disinformation, especially politically-oriented tweets.

Biometric Security: More Risk than Reward

By Editorial Team on Feb 4, 2020 1:57:00 PM

Using biometrics for authentication has always been a source of controversy. At face value, it seems like a fool-proof way to authenticate users (everyone has unique fingerprints, right?). But dig a level deeper, and biometric access management systems store that fingerprint (or iris, or facial map, or walking gait) as data. And, we all know what happens to data if it’s not protected properly. Which brings us to the big problem with biometrics: while passwords can be changed if there’s a data breach, fingerprints and other biometric data are permanent. One breach of a biometrics database is all it takes for someone to lose their identity for a lifetime.

The Rise of Cyber Threat Intelligence in the War on Internet Fraud

By Editorial Team on Jan 29, 2019 11:50:00 PM

Stolen digital information accelerates and enables fraud. This simple truth is changing the way organizations think about protecting themselves from fraudsters. A recent example drives this point home. Ridesharing has become part of our daily life—Uber and Lyft are ubiquitous across the United States and abroad. Not long ago, someone began ordering rides and then contacting the drivers via phone. This is possible given that rideshare applications offer up the driver’s phone number once a ride is hailed. The fraudster would spoof the calling number to look like it came from the rideshare HQ and then tell the driver to cancel their ride with “Mark,” which the driver recognized as the passenger’s name, and pull over.
