You can buy tickets at www.scottishrugby.orgcenter_img Scotland head coach Andy Robinson has today challenged his team to demonstrate they can build on their progress in 2010 when they open their RBS 6 Nations Championship campaign against France in Paris on Saturday.Robinson has made three changes in personnel and two further positional switches from the team that started Scotland’s last match – the success against Samoa in Aberdeen in November – which marked Scotland’s fifth victory in six Test matches.Nick De Luca returns to win his 20th cap in place of the injured Graeme Morrison at inside centre, Max Evans is preferred to Sean Lamont on the wing and the rejuvenated Glasgow Warriors lock Alastair Kellock resumes as Scotland captain alongside his clubmate, Richie Gray.The positional switches see Nathan Hines operate at blindside flanker, the berth in which he started Scotland’s victory against world champions South Africa back in November, with Kelly Brown moving to No 8, a role he has enjoyed at club level. Two of the Scotland XV, Gray and Joe Ansbro, will be making their first Championship start, while Nikki Walker makes his first appearance in the competition for three years.Robinson said: “International rugby is about maintaining forward momentum and, as test matches go, France in the cauldron of Stade de France will be a stern examination. “I’ve remarked before that Scotland have produced some stirring one-off victories in the championship in the recent past and that what we need to do is produce winning performances consistently. “We showed last year that that could be achieved following up our win against Ireland with our tour results in Argentina, though we know that we must be 100% on our top game for that aim to be realised.” Scotland team (sponsor Murray) to play France in the RBS 6 Nations Championship at Stade de France, Paris on Saturday 5 February, kick-off 5pm GMT15 Hugo Southwell (Stade Francais) 57 caps, 8 tries, 40 points14 Nikki Walker (Ospreys) 18 caps, 5 tries, 25 points13 Joe Ansbro (Northampton Saints) 2 caps12 Nick De Luca (Edinburgh) 19 caps11 Max Evans (Glasgow Warriors) 15 caps, 2 tries, 10 points 10 Dan Parks (Cardiff Blues) 56 caps, 4 tries, 11 conversions, 42 penalties, 13 drop-goals, 207 points9 Rory Lawson (Gloucester) 22 caps 1 Allan Jacobsen (Edinburgh) 50 caps2 Ross Ford (Edinburgh) 43 caps, 2 tries, 10 pointslast_img read more

Data breaches are inevitable – here’s how to protect yourself anyway

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By W. David Salisbury, and Rusty Baldwin, University of DaytonIt’s tempting to give up on data security altogether, with all the billions of pieces of personal data – Social Security numbers, credit cards, home addresses, phone numbers, passwords and much more – breached and stolen in recent years. But that’s not realistic – nor is the idea of going offline entirely. In any case, huge data-collection corporations vacuum up data about almost every American without their knowledge.As cybersecurity researchers, we offer good news to brighten this bleak picture. There are some simple ways to protect your personal data that can still be effective, though they involve changing how you think about your own information security.The main thing is to assume that you are a target. Though most individual people aren’t specifically being watched, software that mines massive troves of data – enhanced by artificial intelligence – can target vast numbers of people almost as easily as any one person. Think defensively about how you can protect yourself from an almost inevitable attack, rather than assuming you’ll avoid harm.What’s most important now?That said, it’s unproductive and frustrating to think you must pay attention to every possible avenue of attack. Simplify your approach by focusing on what information you most want to protect.Covering the obvious, keep your software up-to-date. Software companies issue updates when they fix security vulnerabilities, but if you don’t download and install them, you’re leaving yourself unprotected from malware such as keystroke loggers. Also, be smart about what links you click in your email or when browsing the web – you could inadvertently download malicious software to your phone or computer, or allow hackers access to your online accounts.In terms of online data, the most important information to protect is your login credentials for key accounts – like banking, government services, email and social media. You can’t do much about how well websites and companies safeguard your information, but you can make it harder for hackers to get into your account, or at least more than one of them.Reusing login names and passwords is a significant risk.Mihai Simonia/Shutterstock.comHow? The first step is to use a different username and password on each crucial site or service. This can be complicated by sites’ limits on username options – or their dependence on email addresses. Similarly, many sites have requirements on passwords that limit their length or the number or type of characters that they can include. But do your best.The reason for this is straightforward: When a bunch of usernames and passwords fall into malicious hands, hackers know it’s human nature to repeat usernames and passwords across many sites. So they almost immediately start trying those combinations anywhere they can – like major banks and email services. A chief information security officer we know in the banking industry told us that after the Yahoo breach of a few years ago, banking sites were hit with multiple attempts to log in with credentials stolen from Yahoo.Use long passwordsThere has been a lot of research about what makes a strong password – which has often led to many people using complex passwords like “[email protected]” But more recent research suggests that what matters much more is that passwords are long. That’s what makes them more resistant to an attempt to guess them by trying many different options. Longer passwords don’t have to be harder to remember: They could be easily recalled phrases like “MyFirstCarWasAToyotaCorolla” or “InHighSchoolIWon9Cross-CountryRaces.”It can be daunting to think about remembering all these different usernames and passwords. Password management software can help – though choose carefully as more than one of them have been breached. It can be even safer – despite conventional wisdom and decades of security advice – to write them down, so long as you trust everyone who has access to your home.Use a third line of defenseHave hackers driven us back to the age of the physical key?BautschTo add another layer of protection – including against troublesome housemates – many sites (Google, for example) let you turn on what’s called multi-factor authentication. This can be an app on your smartphone that generates a numeric code every 30 seconds or so, or a physical item you plug into your computer’s USB port. While they can afford at least some protection, be wary of sites that send you a text with a code; that method is vulnerable to interception.With these straightforward steps – and the new mindset of thinking like a target who wants to avoid getting hit – you’ll be far less worried when news breaks of the next breach of some company’s enormous data files. Bad guys may get one of your usernames, and maybe even one of your passwords – so you’ll have to change those. But they won’t have all your credentials for all your online accounts. And if you use multi-factor authentication, the bad guys might not even be able to get into the account whose credentials they just stole.Focus on what’s most important to protect, and use simple – but effective – methods to protect yourself and your information.
