Surveillance images released by the bank showed masked robbers working in

Pokémon Go Security Risks
Flagged by CIA, Gulf States and Data Security Experts
Even by the standards of
online viral trends the trajectory of Pokemon Go is quite astonishing
Within a week of launch the augmented-reality mobile exploration game
could boast 20 million downloads. To put that into some sort of
context, it's twice the number achieved by dating app Tinder over a timescale
208 times as long (four years), while even the number of daily active users
accrued over 10 years by Twitter - arguably the internet
success story of the past decade - was surpassed in just seven days.
As ever when a network-dependent game outstrips the expectations of its
developers, the servers in place to accommodate the playing community have
proven woefully inadequate and crashed frequently. But if the game's developers,
Niantic Labs, are frantically scrambling to upgrade server capacity, then might
it neglect mounting cyber security concerns?
And the cyber threat
is not the only security issue to arise from the latest viral gaming

development Kuwait's Interior Ministry issued a statement on 14 July warning
players not to take pictures of government buildings, military bases,
oil facilities, mosques and shopping centres.
UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority has warned residents that
"criminals can use the app's geolocation features to target the victims. Those
features alongside the phone's camera make users vulnerable to hackers'
The sharing of players' locations has raised concerns about personal as well as
state security, with some commentators warning that peadophiles could exploit
the game to prey on children.

in a Tumblr post Adam Reeve, a security analyst, has noted that players who sign
in through Google grant Niantic Labs access to all personal data held by the
search engine. Users were not given any indication that Niantic Labs would gain
access to their personal data by default.
iOS users are apparently given
no option to edit privacy permissions, while the game doesn't even appear under
Google's security permissions. The Google Play store does state that Pokemon Go

authority to "modify nearly all information in your Google account."

creation process on iOS erroneously requests full access permission for the
user's Google account. However, Pokémon GO only accesses basic Google profile
information (specifically, your User ID and email address) and no other Google
account information is or has been accessed or collected. Once we became aware
of this error, we began working on a client-side fix to request permission for
only basic Google profile information, in line with the data that we actually

accessed by Pokémon GO or Niantic. Google will soon reduce Pokémon GO's
permission to only the basic profile data that Pokémon GO needs, and users do
not need to take any actions themselves."

The average dollar loss also increased - from $2,465 in 2014 to

3 ways artificial intelligence is transforming
The confluence of AI and
e-commerce could not only transform the millions of online transactions that
occur every day, but also in-store purchase behaviours, already influenced
by digital interactions at a rate of 36 cents for every dollar spent in the
retail store, or approximately $1.1 trillion total.
will this impact be felt? Here are three key implementations of AI that will
fundamentally change the face of e-commerce, bringing it many leaps closer
to its optimal impact.
1. The search glitch
key is to utilise the power of artificial intelligence combined with natural
language processing capabilities (NLP), essentially putting the human
element back into a digital experience. By doing this, e-commerce platforms
will be able to turn massive numbers of failed experiences into successful
2. Personal shopper to the everyday consumer
Consumers will be able to enjoy their own personal virtual shopping
assistant as AI undergoes an evolution and search technologies transition
from being passive information retrievers to incorporating features of
proactive personal assistance.
3. All-seeing AI
AI searches would then not only provide better and more informed responses,
but also predict behaviors, preferences and future purchases - all of which
unlocks the potential and facilitation of an immeasurable number of online
transactions, adding to e-commerce's 11% contribution of total retail sales
anticipated in 2018.
Increased transactions, increased customer
satisfaction, increased retention, increased conversion- these metrics are
but the start of all that will be AI's impact on e-commerce.
Can Social Logins Help
Online Retailers Fight Fraud?
A report from
payment processing company Worldpay explores how social could be a powerful
tool for identity verification and fraud prevention. A key part of using
social media data is to establish identity online. Many are already using
sites like Facebook, Google+ and Linkedin as identity services.
Social logins help automate the identity service somewhat, and 35 percent of
respondents already use social as part of their customer login process. 56
percent also said they place greater trust in customers who use social
logins. However, business should be careful not to become complacent;
screening these profiles for validity during a fraud investigation would be
58 percent of respondents admitted to collecting data they
don't use in fraud-prevention efforts, and 85 percent agreed that they need
greater insight into their data if they are to fight fraud. One big way to
leverage this data is to automate its collection and examination.
Respondents noted that unexpected information and trends can be surfaced by
intelligent software, leading to predictions of fraudulent intent.

Memphis, TN: Credit card
skimming increased 546 percent last year
the last few months, investigators across the country have ramped up
inspections to try and find as many devices as they can. According to FICO,
a company that tracks credit card fraud, skimming incidents were up a
whopping 546 percent from 2014 to 2015. The crime continues to grow because

Finding your rhythm sometimes is like playing hide-in-seek. Some days, you
just get up with it and some days you just can't find it. But once you do,
don't let anyone slow you down and try not to second guess yourself. Just
move forward and push yourself to try new things and let the flow take you.
Don't worry about where you'll end up; just have confidence in yourself and
trust the old expression "Build the field and they'll come and play."
Because if you focus on just adding value and helping with everything you do
and every person you interact with, the rest will take care of itself.
