One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.

Issuers need to balance eCommerce payment transaction security and a smooth customer checkout experience. The crux of the matter is how to provide a seamless checkout experience for legitimate customers so they won’t abandon their transaction or use a different form of payment while at the same time stopping illegitimate attempts to transact. The use of behavior-based authentication to determine which transactions should be impacted by requiring the customer to go through additional means of authentication is critical for reducing customer friction while creating better assurance that the transaction is legitimate. Rules are an important component when providing this risk- and behavior-based authentication. When models are added, and used to guide the application of risk-based rules, the impact upon illegitimate authentication attempts can be greatly increased while the impact on legitimate customers is decreased, providing a better experience for the cardholder and loss reduction for

Most people define mobile devices – smartphones and tablets – as those
running a mobile-optimized operating system (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows
Phone). There’s a trend emerging, however, in which traditional mobile
devices are gaining functionality typically associated with PCs.
At the same time, PCs are being architected more like mobile devices — an
interbreeding of species, if you will. The iPad Pro, for example, has a
keyboard. With Windows 10, phones and tablets can run “Universal” apps
that also run on PCs. Windows 10 also has application-layer sandboxing,
code-signing, and an app store with apps pre-vetted by Microsoft. In
certain configurations (i.e. enterprise-managed devices), a laptop running
Windows 10 has a security architecture that looks strikingly similar to a
smartphone or tablet.
