For the semiconductor industry, what started out as a cute description of a technology trend has become something like a force of nature. It’s called Moore’s Law. In fact, it’s not a law at all, but a rule of thumb that Silicon Valley pioneer Gordon Moore cooked up back in the 1960s. Moore, co-founder of Intel, noticed that the number of transistors being packed into integrated circuits was doubling every year, and he predicted this trend would continue. The strange thing is, it turned out to be more or less true. Moore’s observation has become the de facto law behind the meteoric rise of the computing industry. Ever since 1975, the number of transistors on a semiconductor chip has doubled roughly every 18 months, enabling microprocessors and memories to get larger and more complex-and far cheaper. Powering this trend is the shrinking of transistors with each chip generation. This rapid diminution of microelectronics makes possible today’s information … [Read more...] about Chips Go Nano

In a previous column, I addressed the importance of website users understanding what they are agreeing to when they use a site. Now I'll take a look at the other side: What risks do site owners run by having poorly written Terms of Service (ToS) or Click Agreements -- or none at all?If your company offers goods or services through its website (or for that matter, if downloads or advice are offered for a cost -- or even for free), when was the last time you looked to see what your ToS or Click Agreements say? If you've read my prior column, you would know that those ToS or Click Agreements could constitute a binding contract on the user, and that those contractual terms are important to your company.This column is directed to those individuals who should be concerned about what the ToS and Click Agreements say -- CEOs, CMOs, CIOs, CFOs, or anyone responsible for any use of your company's website. If you haven't run those ToS or Click Agreements past your lawyer, this column is … [Read more...] about TECHNOLOGY LAW CORNER Your Customers May Not Review Your ToS and Click Agreements, but You Should!
"Target was certified as meeting the standard for the payment card industry in September 2013. Nonetheless, we suffered a data breach." Those words by Target Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer Gregg Steinhafel affirmed what security experts know as gospel: Compliance does not equal security."Just because you pass a PCI audit does not mean that you're secure," said Eric Chiu, president and founder of HyTrust. "Clearly we saw that in the Target scenario."PCI standards can suffer from a common regulatory affliction."A standards body takes many years to develop a standard," Chiu told TechNewsWorld. "In that time frame, threats change."In the retail sector, Target was a security standout when it passed its PCI audit in September."The lesson here is even if you're pretty vigilant and at the top of your industry, being secure today doesn't mean being secure tomorrow," Sonali Shah, vice president of products for BitSight, told TechNewsWorld. While CEOs may not know that, … [Read more...] about SPOTLIGHT ON SECURITY Target Breach Lesson: PCI Compliance Isn’t Enough
Citing First Amendment protections, a U.S. District Court judge in Seattle has ruled in favor of Amazon.com in its battle with North Carolina over potentially sensitive customer data the state claims it needs to calculate taxes.Judge Marsha J. Pechman ruled Monday that Amazon is not obligated to provide the names, addresses and purchasing records of North Carolina residents with whom the company has done business between August 2003 and February 2010."The First Amendment protects a buyer from having the expressive content of her purchase of books, music and audiovisual materials disclosed to the government," Pechman wrote in her ruling. "Citizens are entitled to receive information and ideas through books, films and other expressive materials anonymously."The ruling is the latest in a string of disputes between online retailers and state revenue departments interested in collecting millions of dollars in sales and use taxes legally due on transactions with out-of-state retailers.

Protecting the data in electronic health records did not start with the advent of HIPAA -- the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 -- as many people think. Protecting health records has been a critical requirement in the healthcare space since the computers became a fixture in hospitals. However, HIPAA added public reports of fines issued for covered entities' failure to properly protect data contained within EHRs.Many people assume that EHR data has limited value to unauthorized users. (Who cares about my blood test results, or that I just visited my dermatologist?) Understanding their value is quite simple, though. In addition to personal health information, or PHI, EHRs contain Social Security numbers, which never expire -- and cybercriminal use of SSNs is not easily detected.Stealing EHRs is better for cybercriminals than stealing credit cards, which can be used only until the card expires, is maxed out or canceled, according to a Trend Micro study released … [Read more...] about TECHNOLOGY LAW CORNER Why Are Health Records So Valuable to Cybercriminals?
