Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group suggests that you always keep your car within safety standards and in perfect running condition to have a pleasant drive.

 

Aside from keeping your car in good running condition, you also need to be a responsible driver. Remember how learning to properly brake a car is the first rule in driving a vehicle?

As a driver, you should always be careful and make sure that everyone is safe while you are driving. Being a good driver is not that hard, right?

The company can deliver fast tyre quotation through online transactions to make fitting faster with lesser trouble. When you require help, they can also provide local collect and delivery of your car where you can be sure of a first-rate car maintenance and repair.

 

Does your car need to undergo an MOT test? It’ll be no problem to Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group. Checking the safety of your car and the amount of exhaust emission were included in this examination. The company provides regular reminders to assist you in your annual MOT certificate requirement. And in order to ensure that you will renew your road tax and your car insurance at the right time, the reminders of Tyre&Auto also include the due of your test.

 

Whether it is work-related or personal matters, each of us needs a vehicle to reach our desired destination every day, and a car meets that need. It is really a great convenience in today's busy society. Getting your own car could also be an advantage to you because it provides ease, mobility, and personal comfort, so in return, you must properly take care of it and make sure to have it checked every time.

 

In addition to the comfort and financial returns a car could bring to an individual or a family, this particular tool can also deliver emotional or psychological benefits. Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group believes in the crucial role of cars these days, thus they continue to provide quality service to their customers that can meet or exceed their expectations. Tyre&Auto makes sure that their automobile maintenance and repair is always top-notch.

Online Fraud Detection Security and Risk Online on How to Keep Safe Shopping Online and Avoid Cyber-crime

 

With online shopping growing fast, more of us are turning to the internet to buy stuff. And the run-up to Christmas is one of the busiest times, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday seeing a jump in online sales.

 

Latest figures show that this year it is expected that around out of every £100 spent on retail, £1.70 of that will be online. Last year Black Friday saw two million online transactions, with around one million on Cyber Monday.

 

More than three-quarters of internet users made a purchase online last year, according to research from Twenga Solutions.

 

But many online shoppers are worried about the risk involved of sharing financial details over the internet. Now Devon & Cornwall Police has issued this guidance on how to stay safe when shopping online.

 

How to protect yourself from cyber crime

 

Cyber crime is when criminals exploit the speed, convenience and anonymity that technology offers in order to commit a range of offences. It is becoming increasingly serious and is estimated that it costs the global economy about 445 billion dollars a year, according to the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

 

What is 'cyber crime?'

 

Police often break cyber crime down into two categories:

 

  • Cyber enabled crime – traditional crimes committed using the internet. e.g. theft, harassment, fraud, identity theft, selling stolen goods, drug dealing or people smuggling.
  • Cyber dependant crime - online crimes where a digital system is the target. These include attacks on computer systems to disrupt IT infrastructures, e.g. unauthorised access (hacking), malicious software programming (malware) or denial of service attacks.

 

 

We are all vulnerable to the potential of cyber crime, either individually or as a company. Remember that 80% of all cyber crime is preventable.

 

The Law

 

Cyber crime is against the law under the Computer Misuse Act (CMA) 1990. It may also include abusive or harassing communications under the Malicious Communications Act 1988 or Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

SC Advisors Real Estate Orlando Projects in Singapore Review: Orange Country Recreation Centers

DEVELOPER’S REPRESENTATIVE FOR 5 COMMUNITY CENTERS

 

As the Orange County Board of County Commissioners considered allocating public funds for the construction of Amway Center, members concluded that a tangible community benefit should be part of the Amway Center project. As Owner’s Representative for the Orlando Magic, SC Advisors helped with negotiations that led to the Magic’s agreement to provide five new community recreation centers throughout the County.

 

SC Advisors then served as the Developer's Representative for the five new recreation centers. Strategically located across Orange County, the five recreation centers provide wellness opportunities to families at an affordable cost. Each facility includes a fitness room with cardio equipment, weight room, locker room, two classrooms and a 12,000-square-foot wood floor gymnasium. The recreation centers are building stronger communities by offering exciting programs and activities for preschoolers, youth, adults and seniors.

 

SC Advisors placed the multi-facility development on an accelerated schedule to coincide with the completion of the Amway Center. The SCA team worked closely with Orange County to coordinate the five different site plans and managed each project through to completion. SC Advisors helped the Magic fulfill their promise by delivering all five centers to the County prior to the October 2010 opening of Amway Center.

Coalition Against Insurance Fraud - Lemonade: smart business or soft fraud target

Crooks likely to probe the P2P insurer with bogus claims

 

This is a blog about a blog. It’s also a predictor of things to come.

 

The new insurer Lemonade thinks it has a winning formula. Get rid of agents and most other personnel. Just digitize policy sales and claims. It’s part of the bigger trend of peer-to-peer firms rapidly sprouting in various consumer sectors.

 

Dennis Jay wrote about Lemonade last week. I’m so fascinated by the upstart startup’s P2P business model that I had to weigh in with my two cents worth.

 

Lemonade thinks its formula will lower fraud, blogs board member Peter Diamandis.

 

Policyholders can have underwriting profits donated to nonprofits they choose. Insurance becomes “a social good, rather than a necessary evil.”

 

People are less likely to try and bilk Lemonade, Diamandis contends. Why would they defraud the insurer and thus reduce the charity donations?

 

Many policyholders likely will be kind-hearted, as I see it. They’ll keep applications, renewals and claims sparkling clean for the good of the cause.

 

Two other classes of insured’s may be less charitable. First are the desperate ones. They’re average, everyday people whose finances are sagging. Maybe their home or SUV is near foreclosure, their bank account nearing empty.

 

They’ll worry more about saving their own skins than what money Lemonade sends to charity. If they can rifle Lemonade to bail themselves out with false claims, their adrenalin-addled brains will impel them to pounce. They could, for instance, trash their car and claim it was stolen or wrecked in a hit-and-run.

 

Then there’s another class: the greedy.

 

Some of the greedy are everyday people. They’re not desperate. Many are just opportunists. Maybe they just want to trade up to a bigger diamond engagement ring, and tell Lemonade that, sorrow of sorrows, it slipped off the wife’s finger at the beach. Or double the cost of a sound system lost in a home fire.

 

Organized rings are another kind of greedy, often led by dangerous sociopaths. Fraud is their business, a science. They’ll study Lemonade and probe for weaknesses in the application and claims system. Just like many crime rings test brick-and-mortar insurers when plotting staged crashes with mass injury claims.

 

Professional and amateur criminals look for weaklings to exploit, just like wolf packs stalking elk herds. My bet is they’ll try to infiltrate Lemonade to see how much juice is for the taking.

 

Lemonade’s elysian P2P concept will appeal to tech-savvy millennials — and provide another choice in the marketplace. Maybe Lemonade will inspire traditional insurers to tighten their own operations if they lose large numbers of customers to its community-minded model.

 

Meanwhile, this trusting P2P business model likely will be tested to the max on the mean streets. Here’s hoping Lemonade’s leadership grasp this truth, and develops new innovative firewalls to protect the company from some very smart street criminals.

Online Security on Anonymous Internet Vigilantes Are Taking Peer Review into Their Own Hands

Online Security on Anonymous Internet Vigilantes Are Taking Peer Review into Their Own Hands

Since 2012, the message board PubPeer has served as a sort of 4chan for science, allowing anyone to post anonymous comments on scientific studies. Originally intended as a forum for the discussion of methods and results, PubPeer has perhaps become best known as a clearinghouse for accusations of scientific error, fraud, and misconduct—forcing journals to issue corrections and retractions, damaging careers, and eventually embroiling the site in a court case in which it’s advised by Edward Snowden’s legal team at the American Civil Liberties Union.

 

In the view of its critics, PubPeer enables an unchecked stream of accusations with no accountability. But to its supporters, PubPeer is maybe the only consistently effective way to expose fraud and error in the current scientific system. It exists at a time of quiet crisis for science and science journals, when the community is concerned about an inability to replicate past results—the so-called “reproducibility crisis”—and the number of papers retracted is on the rise. The traditional system of peer review seems unable to address these problems.

 

“We started it because we wanted more detailed arguments about science, and we were really shocked at how many fundamental problems there are with papers, involving very questionable research practices and rather obvious misconduct,” said Brandon Stell, a neuroscientist at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris and the creator of PubPeer.

 

There’s certainly no denying its effect. According to Retraction Watch, a blog that monitors scientific corrections, errors, and fraud, at least three high-profile scientists in the past few months have had their studies retracted by journals after their data was questioned by anonymous commenters on PubPeer.
