Catch Of The Week: What To Do…If You’re Caught In A Data Breach

first_imgCaricature by artist Paul Ziomek. https://paulzcreative.com By REBECCA RUTHERFORDLos Alamos Also announced last week, Evites suffered a data breach. Evites is a website where users can create party invites and send them via email. Hackers were able to access an old database containing user data, including full names, countries, emails, IP addresses, and cleartext (unencrypted) passwords from customers. The database was posted for sale on the dark web and contained information for about 10 million users. Better Business Bureau (BBB) Tips: https://www.bbb.org/databreach/ It is important to note that not everyone who had lab work done with these companies will be affected; only patients who did not pay their bill on time would have been passed off to AMCA. What to do if your social security number is stolen: https://www.experian.com/blogs/ask-experian/3-steps-to-take-if-your-social-security-number-has-been-stolen/ 1. First of all, you need to figure out what data was lost. The loss of publicly available data like your name, address, or phone number is less sensitive and probably won’t cause you much trouble. More sensitive data like email addresses, date of birth, and payment-card numbers can lead to increased spam emails, possible fraudulent charges, and some risk of identity theft. The most sensitive information of all would be information like your social security number, passport number, online account passwords, and financial account numbers. This information can be very damaging and lead to identity fraud, hijacking of your online accounts, and fraudulent charges.2. The company may tell you that stolen information was encrypted, but keep in mind this doesn’t mean your data is safe; encryption can be cracked. If your encrypted password is less than ten characters long and/or contains dictionary words, you can consider it lost. Immediately change the passwords on any compromised online accounts. If you reused the compromised password on multiple accounts, be sure to change those as well! Hackers can automate the account compromise process and test possible email and password combos across multiple sites quickly. Do not make their job easy by reusing the same password across multiple websites.3. If your financial information was compromised, contact your bank or credit card immediately and let them know. Professional credit card thieves will try to make multiple purchases on the stolen card as quickly as possible, usually within hours of the theft. If you receive a notification that your financial information was compromised in a data breach, check your statement history and look for any suspicious charges. For most credit cards, you can report a card lost or stolen at any time and only be liable for at most $50 of the charges. Debit cards usually offer less protection; you only have two business days after learning of the fraudulent charges to tell your bank. If you notify them after that you may be liable for up to $500; let 60 days go by, and you could be liable for all charges. Avoid using your debit card for any online transactions.4. Be sure to contact one of the major credit reporting bureaus and ask them to put a fraud alert on your account. Once one credit reporting bureau receives a fraud notification, they are required to alert all the other credit reporting bureaus. Fraud alerts are free and can be renewed every year. You can also request that a credit freeze be placed on your account; no one will be able to run a credit report on you or open an account without your permission.Credit freezes are also free, though they may cause complications if you need to apply for a new credit card, mortgage, or change cellular or cable services.5. Most of the time if you are the victim of a data breach, the company will offer you one or two years of credit or identity monitoring services. Be sure to read the fine print of the offer to check what kind of protection you are getting. There are numerous free and paid services out there that can help! Identity theft service reviews: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/best-identity-theft-protection,review-2083.html No medical or insurance data is known to have been exposed as a result of this breach. Data compromised likely included name, contact information, credit card or bank information, and for Quest customers, may have included Social Security numbers. Some customers may also have had their date of birth exposed, though that has not been confirmed. Data breaches … they happen all the time, right? It can be easy to ignore them, but it’s important to pay attention when these show up in the news, or you could end up with fraudulent charges, your identity stolen, or worse. Additional Resources: In today’s connected world, data breaches are becoming an everyday occurrence. Pay attention, don’t ignore any notification that you were affected by a breach, and make sure that you take steps to protect yourself in the event you are a victim! Last week the American Medical Collections Agency (AMCA) revealed it was the victim of hackers who had unauthorized access to their system from August of 2018 until March of 2019. Over 20 million LabCorp, Quest, and OpkoHealth patients who had been placed into collections with this company had their personal and financial data exposed. These three companies are the only ones known to be affected by the AMCA data breach at this time, but that could change as the investigation into the breach of the company’s servers continues. What should you do if you get a notification that you were affected by a data breach?

GERSHON HOLDS OFF BROWNING TO WIN DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL PRIMARY

first_imgPerry Gershon, an East Hampton businessman and entrepreneur, has won the right to challenge incumbent Republican U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin in November’s general election.Gershon bested a field of four other hopefuls in the Democratic primary on Tuesday, June 26, winning 35.5 percent of the vote to hold off Kate M. Browning, a former Suffolk County legislator, who had been endorsed by many in the Democratic establishment, and received just over 30 percent of the vote.“Tonight’s victory shows Suffolk County is energized and ready for change,” Gershon said in a release. “A year ago, I decided to run for Congress because I was fed up with career politicians, like our own congressman, Lee Zeldin, who put special interests and partisan politics ahead of people.”Gershon received 7226 votes, while Browning received 6159 votes. Vivian M. Viloria-Fisher, herself a former Suffolk County legislator, came in third place with 3314 votes, or 16.3 percent. David Pechefsky received 2425 votes, or 11.9 percent, and Elaine Di Masi received 1207 votes, or nearly 6 percent of the total to round out the field.Results were obtained from the Suffolk County Board of Elections website and are not official.With the primary behind him, Gershon said he would focus in the general election on a number of issues from health care to the economy that are important to Long Islanders.“Americans want better health care,” he said. “They have a need and a desire for universal health care coverage.”He acknowledged that with President Donald Trump in office for two more years, passage of universal health care will not be possible, but he insisted that Democrats have to “play both long ball and short ball” by protecting the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, from being gutted by Republicans for the time being until they can win back a majority.The candidate said he would also campaign on the environment. “Climate change is real and it is affecting us here on Long Island,” he said, adding that Long Islanders are also worried about the quality of their drinking water.Gershon said he would also work to provide more good jobs for people in the 1st Congressional District, saying that one area that he agrees with President Trump is on the need to rebuild American infrastructure.But he said the Republican tax cuts will likely lead to rising deficits, which will make it difficult to find the funding for infrastructure projects. While he said it is unlikely the tax legislation will be reduced any time soon, he stressed that it is imperative that the caps on state and real estate taxes adopted with the tax overhaul need to be eliminated because they are having a negative impact on Long Island residents.Zeldin, who has been waiting in the wings for the Democrats to nominate a candidate, wasted little time in firing off a broadside.“Congrats to Park Avenue Perry on buying his way into a general election. It’s amazing that the Democratic Party was so desperate that they nominated a liberal Manhattan Democrat who has never even voted here in a November election for Congress,” said a release issued by his campaign. “After a primary where he continuously preached about his desire to make Nancy Pelosi the next Speaker of the House, made the disgusting comparison of President Trump’s rallies to Hitler rallies, pathologically lied about Congressman Zeldin’s policy positions, defended high taxes, and took many other out of touch, far left positions, Park Avenue Perry proved how unrepresentative to us he would be as a representative.”“I find it interesting that the first thing Zeldin did was an all-out attack on me,” Gershon said of the Zeldin campaign’s press release. “That’s is not the type of behavior that is typical of a confident incumbent.”Gershon said Democratic turnout in the primary was 75 percent higher than it was two years ago when Anna Throne-Holst squeaked by Dave Calone to win the Democratic nomination, only to be trounced by Zeldin in the general election. This year, Gershon said he expected a close race. “Democratic turnout in the general election is going to be very strong,” he said.sjkotz@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more

Dredging Operations Revised for Royal River

first_imgThe New England District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has recently awarded a contract to dredge the channel and anchorage of the Royal River Federal navigation project (FNP) in Yarmouth, Maine.Dredging operations have been revised to commence on October 20, 2014 and will be completed by April 1, 2015. The dredged sediments will be placed at the Portland Disposal Site located approximately 15 Nautical Miles from the mouth of the Royal River FNP.Included with this notice is a revised map specifying the Haul Route to be used by the dredging contractor transiting to and from the dredged material placement site.The map is revised from previous versions to avoid shoals and obstructions along the haul route. The revision to the haul route reflects one moved waypoint at the south end of Broad Sound (slightly to the south and east) and has added one waypoint east of East Cod Ledge in Casco Bay.All fishing gear must be removed from 200 feet either side of the specified haul route centerline to avoid damage to or loss of fishing gear due to dredged material disposal operations.[mappress mapid=”18936″]Press Releaselast_img read more

SFRS Supports National Fish & Chip day 2016

first_imgThe Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is marking National Fish & Chip day by asking people to avoid cooking under the influence of alcohol.During 2014-15 there were 4,961 accidental house fires in Scotland and 2,329 – or 47% of them – were cooking related. This resulted in 383 people being injured.You can reduce your chances of being hurt in a fire by buying something to eat on the way home from a night out. Whether it be your local chip shop or takeaway– you are avoiding placing yourself in danger by cooking whilst under the influence of alcohol.Assistant Chief Officer Robert Scott, Director of Prevention and Protection, SFRS said:“Across Scotland fish and chips has long been a national favourite – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg!“As well as celebrating a traditional culinary delight, SFRS would also like to thank Scotland’s chip shops for providing another great service. The fact is that for many years cooking has been the number one cause of house fires in Scotland.“Weekends are often a peak time for cooking fires, especially where someone is cooking under the influence of alcohol.  So this National Fish & Chip Day our message is, ‘If you’re feeling hungry after a night out DON’T COOK!  Why not visit your local chip shop instead? Or prepare a cold snack.”There’s yet another way to stay even safer – fit a heat alarm in your kitchen. These are specially designed for the kitchen and are not activated by smoke, preventing false alarms.  A heat alarm will alert you to a cooking fire more quickly than a smoke alarm and give you the best chance to get out fast.  Heat alarms are available from DIY stores or online from around £20ACO Scott added: “Deep frying with chip pans poses an ongoing safety risk so we want to make sure everyone cooks safely and knows the associated dangers. It only takes a moment of distraction, or falling asleep, for a fire in the home to start.“If you are cooking chips the best way to avoid having a chip pan fire is to use a thermostat controlled, electric deep fat fryer instead. The safety cut out (thermostat) controls the temperature of the fat or oil.  Oven or microwave chips are also safer alternatives to chip pans.“If you do use a chip pan and it catches fire, never try to move the pan and never throw water over the pan as it will react violently with the hot oil.  If the fire is well developed get out, stay out, dial 999!  If the fire is in its early stages, and if it is safe to do so, turn off the heat. Then get out of the kitchen, close the door and call the SFRS.”During National Fish & Chip Day, just like every other day of the year, SFRS offers the public a FREE Home Fire Safety Visit. Call to book one for you, or someone you know who is at risk from fire, on 0800 0731 999, text ‘fire’ to 80800 or visit us online at www.firescotland.gov.ukTo find out more about National Fish & Chip Day visit www.nationalfishandchipday.org.uk.
