Here are four stories that I wrote this week.
- Sporting-related businesses (think professional teams, stadium operators, and related services) have absolutely miserable cybersecurity procedures and practices. Here is a report about the depth of their despair.
- The Swiss encryption software vendor Proton has expanded the feature set of their password manager, which continues lead the way in terms of protecting your password vault, something that 1Password and LastPass could learn a few lessons from.
- Amazon has expanded their palm-reading One service for enterprise use, and also made other identity-related announcements this week. The service has a lot of moving parts and some early customers.I first looked at One a few years back when it was just being installed as part of their JustWalkOut technology in retail stores. Since then it has been deployed at hundreds of stores around the world.
- Various government agencies have gotten together and issued a joint report that outlines the best practices for ensuring safer AI development. The emphasis is on the world “outlines” because the devil is all in the details.
