NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Last week’s groundbreaking federal appeals court ruling dramatically changes the landscape of corporate responsibility when it comes to the digital and physical security of personal data, according to experts such as John Shegerian of ERI and Dr. Ross Federgreen of CSR. A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. last week ruled in Attias v. CareFirst that consumers may sue companies that fail to safeguard their personal data. EPIC filed an amicus brief in the case, in support of the consumers, arguing that if "companies fail to invest in reasonable security measures, then consumers will continue to face harm from data breaches." The appeals court agreed with EPIC that the lower court was wrong to dismiss the case, essentially setting a new precedent for future data breach litigation. CareFirst disclosed in May 2015 that an "unauthorized intrusion" into a database dating back to June 2014 resulted in a breach affecting 1.1 million individuals. As is often the case in the wake of large data breaches, a class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of individuals whose data was impacted by the breach. However, a federal court judge ruled in 2016 that the plaintiffs had not shown incidents of harm or data misuse resulting from the security breach. In simple terms, the appellate court ruled that the theft of PII, PHI or other confidential information created a risk of identity theft. This risk of identity theft by itself established harm and thus standing for the case to proceed. “Every business in the US – large or small – is going to need to pay very close attention to the new playing field that has been created by this landmark ruling,” said John Shegerian, Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste and the world's largest IT asset disposition (ITAD) and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company. “We’re about to witness a paradigm shift in data privacy in both the digital and physical realm, and to what lengths businesses are responsible for it. To avoid being sued in what is sure to be a feeding frenzy of litigation over compromised data, the best thing businesses can do now is to make sure they perform their due diligence protecting the data of their constituent customers, vendors, and employees. Properly destroying hardware using a certified organization that permanently eliminates all digital data is crucial.” Shegerian noted that ERI currently provides the only dually certified nationwide solution offering 100 percent guaranteed data destruction for consumer electronics devices, e-waste, and hardware. “With the CareFirst ruling, 250 million Americans were just given permission to sue your business over a data breach, even if no harm such as identity theft or fraud has yet occurred,” said Dr. Ross Federgreen, CEO of CSR Professional Services, Inc. and a leading expert on data privacy. “The risk to any business from losing data, whether accidental or malicious, just went from bad to catastrophic. This court decision is a major step in establishing the right of consumers to bring actions for a data breach at any business or institution. Organizations large and small are going to be in court more often. It’s going to be financially painful. More companies are going to fail because of data breaches.” Dr. Federgreen’s company, CSR, works with companies to facilitate best practices that reduce the business risk and financial liability associated with the acquisition, handling, storage, sharing and disposal of data.

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ERI, the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste and the world's largest cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, yesterday received the “Top Project of the Year” honor at the annual Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards. The award was presented to ERI for the groundbreaking ecycleNYC (www.nyc.gov/ecycle) project, a collaboration between ERI and the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY). The first-of-its-kind ecycleNYC program is the most innovative electronics recycling program in the country, designed to meet the unique infrastructure of NYC, where it can serve those residents who have no access to vehicles. Through the ecycleNYC program, residential highrise buildings in NYC can enroll at no cost for collection of electronics directly in their building. ERI takes advantage of NYC’s dense infrastructure to run efficient routes throughout NYC before bringing the material back to its facilities where ERI destroys all data and responsibly recycles the equipment. The program has seen exponential growth since its launch. Currently 2.3 million New York City residents have access to the program, which has collected and recycled more than 11 million pounds of e-waste to date. The program is free to the City of New York and residents and is fully supported by electronics manufacturers. ERI and DSNY were recognized for the award because ecycleNYC was considered by Environmental Leader’s assembled panel of judges to be an exemplary project. One judge said of ecycleNYC: “This is a great initiative that has shown clear benefits to the residents of the city and the environment. With this being funded by electronics manufacturers and no cost to residents or the tax base, this is a slam dunk.” Another judge referred to the program as, “…a smart approach to collecting e-waste, solving an important set of issues for NYC. The project is very successful and has the opportunity to be scaled, especially to metro locations. The impact they had in a short time period was great. It also has an incredible opportunity for expansion.” The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line. Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges headed by Peter Bussey of LNS Research and also including judges from Advanced Micro Devices, ATT, Best Buy, C&A, Caesars, Cox Enterprises, Fetzer Vineyards, General Motors, Harbec, Kellogg, LNS Research, Marriott, MillerCoors, Newell Brands, Novartis, Oldcastle Inc., Panasonic, Parker Hannifin, Paul Leavoy/Consultant, Safeway, Sears Holdings Corporation, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Strategic Sustainable Consulting, Tyco Global Products, Wellborn Cabinet, and Zee Company/Member of the Vincit Group. With rapid advancements and a continuous rate of change in the field, sustainability and energy professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy, environmental, and sustainability performance. The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards give companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose, as well as a variety of successful projects to illustrate how sustainability and energy management is helping companies improve. "With a highly respected (and critical) judging panel and a strict set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar for the level of product or project to qualify for an award," said Tim Hermes, publisher of Environmental Leader parent company, Business Sector Media. "Those who entered needed to bring their A-game to get even a sniff of award-nirvana. And they delivered." “We are humbled to have been singled out for this Environmental Leader Award by such an esteemed panel of judges,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of ERI. “It has been an honor and privilege to have co-created this constructive collaboration and forged a historic and successful partnership with the great city of New York and forward-thinking manufacturers. That we have now recycled more than 11 million pounds of electronic waste from New York City residents for responsible, effective recycling is a huge accomplishment. Plus, the program now serves more than a quarter of the New York City population. It is tremendously rewarding to be able to help so many do the right thing and responsibly recycle their e-waste – the fastest growing waste stream in the world today – and keep millions of pounds of toxic electronics out of landfills!” Buildings, management companies or residents that want to learn more about electronics recycling in NYC, can visit www.nyc.gov/ecycle.

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and the Smart City World Labs, a Danish consortium, are collaborating to develop technologies to improve the sustainability and liveability of cities. This includes the test-bedding of various technologies ranging from water and energy saving innovations, to green building systems and electric vehicles for tropical megacities such as Singapore. The tests will be conducted on NTU's 200-hectare campus, which is already a living lab for many environment-friendly research projects such as the 5-megawatts peak rooftop solar farms installed on buildings around campus. Leading NTU's efforts will be the Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N), who together with the Danish consortium experts, will explore five broad areas of research - green building technologies, electromobility, environmental sustainability, liveability, and sustainable energy solutions. Smart City World Labs, funded by the Danish Industry Foundation, will also support internationalisation efforts of Singapore and Danish small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) and start-ups and help them go global by tapping on an international network of living labs. NTU Chief of Staff and Vice President (Research), Professor Lam Khin Yong said, "We are living in a world that needs sustainable development so as to address the challenges brought about by rapid urbanization. NTU's partnership with Smart City World Labs will develop innovations to improve the liveability of cities such as Singapore as we embrace green technologies for a more sustainable future." Based in Denmark, the Smart City World Labs Consortium comprises of the Royal Danish Embassy in Singapore, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the City of Copenhagen, Gate 21 and Quercus Group, a consultancy firm that specialises in sustainable development. Her Excellency, Mrs Dorte Bech Vizard, Ambassador of Denmark to Singapore, said, "Denmark and Singapore - both small countries - are important drivers of the green transition through smart tenders and new ways of doing public-private collaboration. Connecting Danish and Singaporean living labs will make it easier for especially our small and medium-sized companies to test and adapt their innovative products in a real life scenario and to show-case the benefits to a broad range of stakeholders in our markets. I expect this will accelerate the uptake of new green solutions and create export successes in both countries." NTU and the consortium will form a gateway that allows local SMEs to tap into a global network of living labs where they can test their ideas, products and innovations overseas. This will allow them to customise their products and services to meet the needs of a specific market. Apart from providing Singapore companies with a launch pad to expand their businesses overseas, the new partnership will also facilitate access into Asian markets and government agencies for Danish companies. This removes some key barriers to internationalisation, as companies can easily tailor their technologies and business models for other markets. Dr Sanjay Chittarajan Kuttan, Senior Scientist at NTU's Energy Research Institute, said, "Start-ups and SMEs are often the source of the most innovative solutions for solving urgent issues facing cities around the world, but lack of "proof of performance" in real world deployment and market access limits their option to scale and extract more value from innovation. By creating a platform for international living lab collaboration, this partnership helps to break down such barriers for companies to go beyond their home markets." A research-intensive public university, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has 33,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students in the colleges of Engineering, Business, Science, Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences, and its Interdisciplinary Graduate School. It also has a medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, set up jointly with Imperial College London. NTU is also home to world-class autonomous institutes - the National Institute of Education, S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Earth Observatory of Singapore, and Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering - and various leading research centres such as the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI), Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N) and the Institute on Asian Consumer Insight (ACI). Ranked 13th in the world, NTU has also been ranked the world's top young university for the last three years running. The University's main campus has been named one of the Top 15 Most Beautiful in the World. NTU also has a campus in Novena, Singapore's medical district. The Smart City World Labs Consortium has been established with the purpose of creating an international platform for strategic living lab collaboration, by building a platform connecting cities and living labs globally - starting with Singapore and Denmark as frontrunners. Funded by The Danish Industry Foundation, the project is facilitated by Gate 21 (lead), the Technical University of Denmark, the City of Copenhagen, Quercus Group, and the Royal Danish Embassy in Singapore. The project will run over 2 years as a pilot project and then be scaled to other cities, mainly in Asia. More than 40 Danish companies, organisations, universities and municipalities have already declared their interest in taking part in the project. Alongside NTU, a number of Singaporean partners are also exploring opportunities for collaboration with the consortium.

MCLEAN, VA and SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - February 09, 2017) - Smart technologies, such as sensors to improve workplace safety and artificial intelligence to aid courtrooms, could emerge from a new research partnership between Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and The MITRE Corporation from the United States. MITRE is a not-for-profit organization that operates federally funded research and development centers in the U.S., providing the US government with engineering, technical and scientific expertise in areas of defence, aviation, homeland security, U.S. courts, healthcare and cybersecurity. NTU and MITRE signed two research agreements today at MITRE's McLean campus in Virginia, U.S., signed by NTU Provost Professor Freddy Boey and MITRE's Senior Vice President Lillian Zarrelli Ryals. The joint research partnership aims to develop innovative technologies to support Singapore's Smart Nation ambitions and improve safety in workplaces, and in Judicial Engineering, which aims to improve productivity and processes for the Singapore courts. Prof Boey said the tie-up brings Singapore a step closer to achieving its Smart Nation vision as the country develops new technologies to tackle critical challenges such as labour shortfall and a rapidly aging workforce. "This new partnership brings together MITRE's strengths in smart technologies and judiciary engineering with NTU's expertise in systems engineering as well as our track record in sustainable and intelligent technologies," said Prof Boey. "Partnering with the best global players like MITRE for interdisciplinary research is important as NTU continues to develop innovative solutions relevant for Singapore and Asia." MITRE's Senior Vice President Ms Ryals said, "MITRE looks forward to strengthening its relationship with NTU by entering into new research partnerships focused on judicial systems and personnel/workplace safety. NTU's extremely strong technical expertise, combined with MITRE's systems engineering acumen, will aid both organizations in tackling the most difficult global problems in these domains." The partnership between NTU and MITRE will look into area of Judicial Engineering, where NTU researchers will work with Singapore's courts to study how technology can help to improve court operations and to increase the productivity of the courts. New technologies to be explored include artificial intelligence and machine learning, court analytics and decision support systems as well as cybersecurity. The second thrust of the tie-up will be a focus on secure smart technologies such as sensors, diverse data sources, analytic technologies, and decision support tools. These smart technologies aim to improve workplace and personnel safety through providing critical safety information gathered through sensors, analytics and other data sources. For example, smart sensors could gather data on the number of employees in an office building and large installations like the airport and seaport, so as to generate the ideal work environment in terms of oxygen levels, brightness of lighting and ambient temperature based on demand in an area. In the event of an incident such as a fire, the information picked up by the smart sensors could also help fire safety officers ensure the safe evacuation of everyone.

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and leading cyber security company FireEye are inking a partnership to explore new areas in cyber security research, and to develop courses to meet the rising demand for cyber security professionals needed to help defend critical networks. Besides carrying out joint research projects and developing new curriculum in cybersecurity, the partnership will offer scholarships, and provide internship opportunities to NTU students. The collaboration was signed today at one of the world's largest gathering of information security professionals, the RSA Conference in California, the United States, by NTU's Dean of the College of Science, Professor Ling San, and Kevin Mandia, Chief Executive Officer at FireEye. NTU Provost, Professor Freddy Boey said, "Today, the world is more connected than ever before, from internet banking to critical infrastructure, and this creates new vulnerabilities. NTU's new partnership with FireEye will not only find better ways to address the rising cyber threats, but also groom the next generation of future-ready cybersecurity professionals." The collaboration will focus on efforts to automatically classify malicious software (malware) and to study new methods that attackers use to infiltrate computer systems. This includes developing solutions to identify hidden malware behaviour that could evade regular detection methods. Eric Hoh, President of Asia Pacific Japan at FireEye said, "In the wake of the U.S. presidential election, it is clear that cyber security is the next domain in which national sovereignty will be challenged. This is cause for concern in the Asia Pacific region, where attackers spend a median of 520 days inside organizations before they are discovered. To improve, organizations must apply a combination of technology, threat intelligence, and -- most crucially -- expertise. Southeast Asia faces a shortage of cyber security expertise, and this collaboration will help bolster the ranks of those that defend Singapore networks." Mr David Koh, Chief Executive of the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore said, "This NTU-FireEye partnership brings together the strengths of both academia and industry to offer cutting-edge cybersecurity research as well as robust training to develop cybersecurity talent.
