Following Facebook Hack, Data443 Offers Unique Opportunity to Better Secure Personal Data on the Social Media Platform
RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LandStar, Inc. ( OTCPK: LDSR ) (“LandStar” or the “Company”), the parent company of Data443™ Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443”), a leading data security and privacy company, announced today that Data443 is inviting Facebook users to tap a specially designed version of its award-winning data classification and governance technology ClassiDocs ™ to discover and assess the personal data on their Facebook accounts. Last Tuesday, Facebook discovered a data breach that exposed as many as 50 million user accounts. This is after a separate breach notification earlier this year reported the potential exposure of as many as 87 million Facebook accounts. Data443’s ClassiDocs employs a unique combination of artificial intelligence and end-user feedback to ensure data privacy and security. Within this framework, Data443 has developed a personal-use version of its more comprehensive ClassiDocs enterprise product that Facebook users can access securely for a limited time to scan their personal account information. Upon completion of the scan, Facebook users will receive a detailed report of all sensitive data posted to their account so they can take control and remove or better secure their personal data.
“Social media has truly changed the way we live – from how we communicate and learn to how we shop and stay informed,” said Jason Remillard, CEO of LandStar and founder of Data443. “But every time we connect to a social platform, we leave a trail of personal information that can be used with intent both good and bad. Even with protections such privacy policies and government regulations, personal data may still be at risk. At Data443, we strive to help organizations ensure data privacy and security, and now with the increase in personal risk through social media, we want to extend this opportunity to individuals as well. With the fines being discussed for the breach – and seemingly lack luster response to the authorities in Ireland – there is much work to be done in this area for organizations of all sizes.”
According to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, there have been over 11 billion records exposed in the 8,806 data breaches made public across a variety of business sectors since 2005, with almost 2 billion records compromised between Jan. 1, 2017 and March 20, 2018. Forbes recently reported that leading research firm Gartner indicates that privacy concerns are a key factor for organizations, and those concerns are expected to drive at least 10 percent of the market demand for security services through next year. ClassiDocs is purpose-built for data privacy and can deploy in minutes to enable secure data across the entire data estate – from end points to the cloud, blockchain, databases, and email, including structured and unstructured data, and data at rest or in flight. Upon deployment and without specific training, users can discover PII, PCI, HIPAA, and other confidential information; report on and improve security access controls; use built-in analytics to respond to data subject access requests (DSARs); enable customer eDiscovery; and immediately comply with data privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act.
Data443 will exhibit this week, Oct. 3-4, at the Ascent Conference at Pier 36 in New York City. The conference will feature talks, roundtables, demos, and more all curated for venture capitalists and the East Coast Tech community. Individuals in attendance who wish to scan their Facebook account using Data443’s personal-use version of ClassiDocs should stop by our booth or schedule a demo here https://www.data443.com/get-free-online-interactive-demo-team-2/.
