EU General Data Protection Regulation Takes Effect in 2018 – Spotlight on Cyber-security Risks of Smart High-Tech Toys




Hong Kong, China, February 1, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - For the Christmas and New Year holidays that just went by, many parents purchased smart high-tech toys as gifts for their children. Parents from the Millennium generation are more likely to let their children spend more time on the screen than previous generations. Edutainment is now the guiding principle for parents purchasing toys. Parents are willing to spend more money purchasing smart high-tech toys because they believe these toys are more educational and they can join the children in creative activities. Smart high-tech toys include robots controlled by smart phones, dolls with corresponding apps, and bespoke soft toys with interactive functions.

Most parents understand the dangers of letting children use social media and tracking their locations/activities. Many parents instinctively shy away from posting pictures of their children online. This may be a smart move because their activity is being tracked and the data may be used by unscrupulous people. Few parents however pay attention to the warnings on the high-tech toys they purchase. Their children are now being exposed to cyber-security risks at an accelerating pace.

EU General Data Protection Regulation Set to Take Effect
Privacy and data security have always been important issues for the European Union (EU). The "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) that will become mandatory on May 25, 2018, will set rigorous standards for the protection of personal data and privacy. The level and scope of personal data protection will be increased. The new GDPR is applicable globally. All manufacturers, whether they are located within EU borders or not, are subject to the GDPR if their products or services are sold within the EU and involve the storage and processing of EU citizens' personal information.

Here "personal information" refers to the personal data of EU citizens during the data processing, including any known or identifiable citizen (data subject) information. The content protected by the GDPR is quite broad in scope. It covers not only personal identity information such as address, telephone number and identification number but also biometrics and online positioning data such as fingerprints, network IP address, and social network activity logs.

All EU member states will enforce strict regulatory controls once the GDPR takes effect. Companies are subject to massive fines of up to 20 million Euro or 4% of the company's global revenues in that year (whichever is highest) for non-compliance. The Federal Network Agency in Germany banned domestic sales of children's smart watches in 2017. Parents were also encouraged to discard such smart watches immediately. The lack of encryption technology allows hackers to easily break into smart watches and make it possible for unscrupulous people to track a child's location with ease. Once the GDPR takes effect, such products will not only be reported but also fined.

How to avoid breaking the law?
First, vendors should reduce the collection and processing of data subjects' personal information. Personal information unrelated to the declared function must not be used. Product manuals must also detail their functions and the technologies used. For example, if a smart doll only engages in simple conversation with children such as responding when asked about the day's weather or whether the child looks pretty, the doll should not have a monitoring function. Such a function would be a non-essential function.

The law also recommends that vendors provide default privacy settings for products and services. The function for allowing the collection of personal information should be set to disabled by default. The user can decide whether to enable the function or not and it must meet a certain standard of encryption.

GDPR requires product and service vendors to use a sound environment and service process controls to protect personal information from misuse, from being leaked through hackers, or being illegally shared with unauthorized third-parties. The law recommends testing by independent third-party organizations to determine whether your business complies with GPDR requirements.

Product/Service Testing and Verification
With many years of experience in information security, T#220;V Rheinland can provide IoT product manufacturers supplying products or services to EU countries with a professional interpretation of the law. Verified IoT products and services are issued certification marks by T#220;V Rheinland including the IoT product and service privacy protection mark. In accordance with GPDR rules, the product certification standard evaluates the privacy protection of an IoT product based on five levels: hardware and firmware, communications, app, documentation and data usage. Privacy protection certification for IoT services is evaluated against seven dimensions including IT environment (including applications), data protection, organizational management, process, penetration testing, documentation and auditing of service partners.

The Culture Connection Gets Real: Secure Software Development Requires a New Mindset




Hong Kong, China, February 1, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - HONG KONG, Jan 30, 2017 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) revealed results following the second phase of a global survey of more than 1,200 IT leaders around the topic of secure software development. Conducted by IT industry analyst firm Freeform Dynamics, the new report entitled, “Integrating Security into the DNA of Your Software Lifecycle,” highlights the influence of an organization’s culture on its ability to integrate security practices into their software development initiatives, a practice and approach commonly known as DevSecOps.

Today’s digital economy is fueled by software. When software is developed with security integrated from the start, the risk of data breaches is greatly diminished, providing users with heightened levels of confidence and trust when engaging with applications and services that are so ubiquitous in our online world.

According to survey respondents, the majority confirmed that software development supports growth and expansion, helps businesses compete and drives digital transformation. And yet, the findings show that, as software becomes more critical to business success in the digital economy, security concerns are exponentially on the rise. In fact, 74% of respondents agreed that security threats due to software and code issues is a growing concern. CA Veracode’s State of Software Security Report 2017 found that vulnerabilities continue to crop up in previously untested software at alarming rates, with 77% of apps having at least one vulnerability on initial scan.

Creating a culture of secure software development is a major challenge, according to the survey findings. An overwhelming 58% of respondents cited existing culture and lack of skills as hurdles to being able to embed security testing and evaluation within software development processes. Only 24% strongly agreed that the organization’s culture and practices supported collaboration across development, operations and security. On top of cultural limitations, less than a quarter of respondents strongly agreed that senior management would sacrifice time to market in order to have sufficient time to assess and repair software security vulnerabilities.

“Security is a key principle in any Modern Software Factory. While our survey findings confirm an overarching recognition in the importance of ensuring that data and systems are built and maintained securely, there is still a lack of cultural adoption within organizations around this pressing issue,” said Ayman Sayed, president and chief product officer, CA Technologies. “When coupled with security, Intelligent IT – the use of AI, machine learning and analytics to make better, more informed decisions – can dramatically change the way that business is done.”

The report showcases characteristics of “Software Security Masters” (the top 34% of respondents), which are organizations that have been able to fully integrate security into their software development lifecycles. This includes conducting early and continuous application testing for security vulnerabilities, as well as embracing the practice of DevSecOps.

In fact, when compared with the mainstream, respondents from the Software Security Masters were over two times more likely to strongly agree that they viewed security as an enabler of new business opportunities. These organizations also exhibited the following attributes:

● 50% higher profit growth
● 40% higher revenue growth
● Are 2.6x more likely to have security testing keep up with frequent app updates
● Are 2.5x more likely to be outpacing their competitors

“The organizations labeled as Software Security Masters are the beacons of hope in today’s digital economy. Not only do they exemplify and represent the cultural mindset necessary to adapt and thrive in today’s dynamic market, they are influencing change within the industry while shaping the workplace of the future,” concluded Sayed.

Survey Methodology
The global online survey of 1,279 senior IT and business executives was sponsored by CA Technologies and conducted by industry analyst firm Freeform Dynamics in July 2017. It was augmented by in-depth telephone interviews with key industry executives.

Hong Kong, China, February 1, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Nordic's nRF91 Series is an ultra-compact, low power, global, multimode LTE-M / NB-IoT System-in-Package with integrated Arm Cortex-M33 host processor, Arm TrustZone security technology, and Assisted GPS

Nordic Semiconductor provided a 'sneak peek' of its upcoming nRF91#174; Series low power cellular IoT solution. During an event in Oslo, Nordic also demonstrated the nRF91 operating on the Verizon Wireless Network in the U.S. and on the Telia network in Norway.

The Nordic nRF91 Series is all about taking the unique value proposal of cellular and bringing simplicity and appeal to a broader market. Today cellular is associated with the high data rates of smartphones and tablets. This solution aims to take cellular beyond just mobile devices and foster innovation that brings cellular connectivity to just about anything you can imagine. In much the same way as Nordic Semiconductor's nRF5 Series enabled innovation and drove adoption of Bluetooth wireless technology in new markets, the nRF91 Series is designed to be an easily accessible solution for cellular connectivity. By setting new benchmarks in terms of integration, size, and power consumption, coupled with its ease-of-use, the nRF91 Series is designed to unleash the huge potential of cellular in IoT – cellular made easy, cellular for everything else.

All the benefits of a traditional cellular module in a tiny System-in-Package with global coverage
Front and center of Nordic Semiconductor’s upcoming nRF91 Series is a highly-integrated, low power, global multimode LTE-M / NB-IoT System-in-Package (SiP). The SiP integrates a complete low power cellular IoT system into a tiny 10x16x1.2mm package that integrates modem, transceiver, RF front end, dedicated application processor, Flash memory, power management, and crystal and passive components.

Isentia Verifies WGSN’s China: Top Fashion Influencers Report




Hong Kong, China, January 31, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Media Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Isentia Verifies WGSN’s China: Top Fashion Influencers Report

Hong Kong – 31 January 2018 – Leading media intelligence company, Isentia (ASX: ISD), provided crucial data to WGSN, the global trend authority for fashion and creative industries, in publishing the paid report China: Top Fashion Influencers (the Report).

The Report reveals top fashion key opinion leaders of the burgeoning influencer market in China and provides the latest insights to help businesses spot opportunities for growing brand presence. It is one of the first WGSN reports from Greater China combining the trend forecasting with the KOL quantitative analysing model of Isentia. The Report has been receiving overwhelmingly positive responses from WSGN subscribers since its release on 5 January 2018.

The Report, which was produced with the aid of Isentia’s Data Verified Mark, rounds-up the Chinese, Hong Kong and Taiwan fashion influencers with the highest influence power by measuring metrics like Weibo follower numbers, total engagement (including the number of “Likes” and interactions throughout January to November 2017) and specifically the engagements during the four global fashion weeks in 2017. The Report, now available for WGSN subscribers’ download, provides useful tips for brands to boost their growth by leveraging on KOL marketing and pointers for collaboration with top China KOLs such as Gogoboi, Tao Liang (Mr. Bags) and Han Huo Huo.

KOLs opinion and engagement with followers could influence their brand preference and purchase intent. “KOL marketing provides strong social cues with visuals featuring styling preferences followed by user generated discussions. It is a powerful tool to build brand affinity and product purchase intent,” said Eden Lau, Isentia’s Regional Director.

Due to cultural diversity and language barrier, it is often difficult for foreign brands to fit perfectly with local tastes. KOL marketing is a good solution for that. KOLs, who are engaging millions of followers, are a rich and important source for Chinese consumers to access to the latest fashion knowledge and trending styling tips which could dove-tail with the taste of local audiences. They are able to inspire and shape young, middle-class lifestyles and their shopping behaviour.

“Chinese consumers are still very new in their upper middle-class lifestyles, which makes them open to buying anything new,” Eden Lau said. “Their highly connected lifestyles and the ease of shopping online add to the impact influencers have on what fashion consumers look and shop for.”

China is a huge and complicated market, flooded with spams and paid engagements. Evaluating KOL performance accurately and picking those who could well fit with social campaign owner’s brand have always been a big challenge. Isentia applied its expertise, cumulated over years, and utilized machine learning technology and quantitative model analysis to overcome that in this Report.

“The Report is Isentia's first project with WGSN. We are happy to see that WGSN editors find that our quantitative analysis can make their works more powerful and convincing,” Mr Lau concluded.

Nesscap Pseudocapacitors poised to revolutionize energy-storage technology!




Hong Kong, China, January 29, 2018 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - With conventional battery technology painfully slow to advance, pseudocapacitors could well be an alternative solution for many applications and power backup in particular.

Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH (Rutronik) has a wide range of supercapacitors available in its extremely large and diverse portfolio. Among them are Nesscap pseudocapacitors from Maxwell Technologies, a combination of supercap and high-energy battery. This hybrid configuration combines the fast energy release of an EDLC with the higher storage capacity of a chemical battery.

Nesscap pseudocapacitors have nearly double the energy of supercaps of similar physical dimensions. The defined cycle life is not as long as that of supercaps, but considerably more than that of lithium-ion batteries. For applications in which heavy-duty cycling is not the highest priority – such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), or other power backup applications – pseudocapacitors can be the optimal solution.

"The Nesscap pseudocapacitors offer high energy density combined with the fast energy delivery we normally associate with supercapacitors, plus a relatively high storage capability," said Randy Huang, Product Manager at Rutronik. "This compelling feature mix makes them particularly suitable for mission-critical applications where downtime is not an option and power failure must be countered with immediate failover."

Nesscap pseudocapacitors are expected to be in high demand in China, and in Asia generally, where rapid industrialization is driving innovation in sectors such as transportation and consumer electronics. Leading enterprises in the region will also be securing their facilities and datacenters from vulnerabilities that include power loss.

Nesscap pseudocapacitors and ultracapacitors can be conveniently ordered online via the company's eCommerce platform https://www.rutronik24.com.cn/pgm/nesscap/electric-doublelayer-caps/kuk/
