How Ubiq Security uses APIs to simplify data protection

As cyberthreats continue to multiply, startups with tools to protect data are in high demand. But companies are now facing the growing complexity of managing security across their various data sources.

San Diego-based Ubiq Security believes APIs could play a key role in simplifying this task. The company hopes to encourage more developers and enterprises to build security directly into applications rather than looking for other services to plug the holes.

“How do you take the messy and complicated world of encryption and distill it down to a consumable, bite-sized chunk?” asked Ubiq CEO Wias Issa. “We built an entirely API-based platform that enables any developer of any skill set to be able to integrate encryption directly into an application without having any prior cryptography experience.”

Issa is a security veteran and said companies have generally been focused on security for their data storage systems. When they start layering applications

Facebook to reimburse some advertisers after miscalculating effectiveness data

LONDON — Facebook is repaying some advertisers after misreporting one of the measures of their ads’ likely effectiveness over the course of a year.

The company’s “conversion lift” tool suffered a glitch that reportedly affected thousands of ads between August 2019 and August 2020.

Facebook fixed the error in September and is now offering a credit to clients “meaningfully affected” by the bug.

Conversion lift helps brands understand how ads lead to sales, using a “gold-standard methodology” that links ads on Facebook’s platforms, including Instagram, to business performance, according to an explanation of the tool on Facebook’s website.

The free tool shows ads to separate test and control groups and then compares sales conversions for each. Then, based on the results of the study, an advertiser can decide how much to spend on the social network.

But advertisers were only alerted to the error this month, according to a report

Using Agile with a Data Science Team

Agile helped a data science team to better collaborate with their stakeholders and increase their productivity. As priorities became clear, the team was able to focus and deliver. Buy-in of the data science team by taking them through a journey of agile was crucial to making it work.

Snigdha Satti, a product owner and senior business analyst at News UK, shared her experiences from using agile with a data science team at Agile Tour London 2020.

When starting her assignment with the data science team, Satti mentioned that the first thing she did was to speak to each and every member of the team and their stakeholders to understand each individual’s pain points:

It was quite clear that the team didn’t have a clear direction and motivation, which led to loss in productivity and eventually missing the deadlines. Similarly, stakeholders were frustrated that things were being promised but not

EU plans to open data to sharing in bid to rival Asia and U.S.

The European Union executive hopes that this could lead to improvements ranging from personalised health treatments, to better tackling climate change or developing precision farming techniques.

“Data should be accessible and the sharing of such data should be secure,” European Commission Vice-President Margrethe Vestager told a news briefing on Wednesday.

The Commission proposed a new model based on the neutrality and transparency of so-called “data intermediaries,” which would organise data sharing or pooling, to increase trust.

“For data to circulate, we need (people) to have confidence,” EU industry chief Thierry Breton

Comcast Is Imposing Data Caps and Will Charge Customers Who Exceed Them

Figuring out how to work from home is challenging. It’s hard enough figuring out how to balance all of the things that go into work, and a family, and everything else that occupies our lives. Add to that a pandemic, and the fact that we’re now doing all of those things from home, and it can quickly get overwhelming.

One of the saving graces has been that many companies recognized the challenges people faced, and did what they could–within their own power–to alleviate those challenges where they could. For example, Zoom has removed the 40-minute time limit on free meetings for Thanksgiving. Other technology companies made versions of their software available for free.

Even Comcast, the country’s largest cable provider, had previously suspended data caps back in March. That was helpful considering how many of us were working from home while-;in many cases-;also trying to help children stay connected to

Comcast sets data caps for D.C., Northeast states

Comcast initially responded to this trend by giving people relief from data caps, which have already been in place across the central and western U.S. for a few years. That reprieve ended in July, and now the company is expanding its controversial data thresholds to the new region starting next year.

Comcast Xfinity customers in New York, Virginia, Maryland and 11 other northeastern states, plus D.C., will be able to use up to 1.2 terabytes of data each month before they start getting charged more, regardless of what speed plan they use. After that, data will be charged at $10 for 50 gigabytes, up to a maximum of $100 additional each month.

Comcast says with that much data, you could stream five hours of 4K video every day for a month, or take part in 3,500 hours of video conferencing.

“I would think that companies should never be implementing nickel-and-diming
