Safeguarding the Web through Internet Fraud Alert System

Another successful invention from Microsoft, Internet Fraud Alert system, is designed to facilitate security researchers. With the help of this mechanism, researchers can report about stolen information to respective providers or organizations. So far, there was no technology which can quickly inform about these compromised or stolen credentials to the service source. Hence, Internet Fraud Alert system is truly an advantageous technology introduced by Microsoft-led coalition.

Security researcher is an essential element of various fields such as financial services, retail, government, technology, consumer advocacy and academia. They often come across with stolen details like password, user name or login information. Sometimes, this information contains credit card numbers that are compromised. Now it has become effortless to alert the proper institutions like bank, about these credentials. Microsoft technology controls the centralized alerting system which is actually designed in favor of this program. This centralized alerting system will immediately report these stolen credentials to companies or banks so that they can take correct steps towards the security of their customers.

As far as the factors like security and expediency are concerned, no other technology can challenge Internet Fraud Alert system. It will be a progressive step in the field of Cyber crime. Considering this fact, Microsoft has handed over this technology to National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance. This organization will manage this program. In addition, many standard associations across the world such as eBay, PayPal, Federal Trade Commission, Citizens Bank, are all set to involve themselves in this program. This list also includes National Consumers League, Anti-Phishing Working Group, Accuity and the American Bankers Association too.

According to the authorities of Microsoft, people who exchange information through fake or compromised identities get profit and share by using stolen credentials. But now, Microsoft has made it by developing techniques to oppose this thievery of identities. Because of the great amalgamation of latest technology and momentous partnership, Internet Fraud Alert system quickly warns institutions in order to take some serious actions to fight crime.

Officials from Risk Management Policy also support Internet Fraud Alert system. They say an important link is provided by Internet Fraud Alert system, which connect National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance and security researchers who encounter some stolen credentials while investigation. As they find out any suspicious data, they inform it to the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance; and then that particular customer is protected from any possible harm.

On the whole, this Internet Fraud Alert system is really powerful and expedient technology. Security researchers agree to the need of such a vigorous system. Assistance of Internet Fraud alert system has really made their work much easier. This system has also proved itself. Anti-Phishing Working Group has taken a delivery of over 410,000 phishing emails praising its work and expediency. Cyber crime is becoming more and more dangerous now days as terrorist activities are becoming part of it. Thus using internet for financial transactions or for exchange of important documents has become risky. As far as cyber security issues are concerned, efforts of Microsoft are really paid off.

Google to Introduce News Payment Tool

Google Inc. is going to introduce a new one click payment system which will be for the new paper publication online. According to the recent report which was published Google has dubbed the tool as  “Newspass” and it would be  providing one new revenue source for  publishers who are struggling in the digital age. According to the translation of the New York Times done for the article, which was published in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that, by the end of this year Google willbe launching the integrated payment system which would be allowing the users to buy the new content with the help of a single click and the publishers would be able to use a single infrastructure for the mobile, web and the tablet for the sake of monetizing their content.

Google’s in Media Business

With the help of this payment system the consumers would be allowed to pay for the full subscriptions or to have access to the articles which will be just for one time. The whole industry of media enjoys a love and hate relationship with the Internet search giant Google. The Mountain View, who is the online publications company, would be providing great amount of the traffic to those web sites that are related to the newspaper as well as the magazines, but it has been complained by some of the people that this company has grabbed a huge and great portion of the advertising dollars which were claimed by them once. It was done in part by aggregating as well as linking to the articles. It has been said consistently by Google that it wishes to partner up with the business of media and also want to help where it is possible for the company. Google has also readily admitted that the worth of the services of the company has much to do with the quality of the content. A handful of initiatives have been rolled out by the company for the sake of helping the publishers to make some more money over the internet.

Chris Gaither – the spokesman of Google has said that the company had no specific way to announce currently about the Newspass, but the executives of Google have much the references to this kind of payment system in the past times. During the month of December, David Drummond, who is the chief legal officer has said during the World Newspaper Congress that they are greatly exploring the solutions related to technology which would be helping the publishers with some of the logistical problems that are in charging for the whole content like the billing systems that are used for the subscriptions or for the micropayments.

Google and Newspaper Association of America

During the previous fall season, it was told to the Newspaper Association of America by Google that a latest version of the Checkout micropayment platform would be helping the industry for charging the content which is available over the Internet. Many of the media outlets have tried to charge a little money for one article which includes many publishers.
