Week in security with Tony Anscombe


What does progress in technology mean? – IRS makes a U-turn on facial recognition but questions remain – What retailers need to know about cyberthreats

In this edition of Week in security, Tony looks at these topics:

ESET launched its new branding with the tagline, ‘Progress. Protected.’, this week, and Chris Hadfield, the first Canadian to walk in space, offered his thoughts for us on what progress in technology means, how it’s helping to change the world for the better, and how we can help change technology.
The IRS recently made a U-turn on its controversial decision to use facial recognition to authenticate taxpayers, and we looked at why the privacy policy of ID.me, the tax agency’s contractor for the now-scrapped plan, mentions collecting information about my Facebook friends.
Also this week, we released a report that examined cyberthreats for the retail sector and how IT security reams at global retailers can help mitigate these threats.
