San Fran Ban on Facial Recognition

In mid May, San Francisco placed a comprehensive ban on facial recognition technology in an effort to prevent its misuse.

The ban, in its entirety only restricts government institutions from using the technology. Though, city officials said they want to start with a government ban before issuing further restrictions on businesses and homeowners.

The new legislation is called the “Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance,” passed with a vote of eight to one through the city. It’s big news, and creates a precedent for other major cities to model after.

Today, more states are currently looking to implement similar restrictions, and San Francisco’s example puts regulatory organizations ahead of the technology adoption curve.

Google’s Research On Two-Factor Authentication

New research, sponsored by Google, demonstrates that two-factor authentication is the most effective method of securing technology, and personal accounts.

It’s not completely surprising to know that adding additional barriers makes things safer, but the research shows that even the weakest two-factor methods improve the effectiveness of cyber security.

A study by one research firm demonstrates that 80% of data breaches could be prevented, simply by implementing two-factor authentication.

That’s huge, and it doesn’t require much to get started. Our article on this research goes over what two-factor authentication is, what else Google’s research finds, and more.
