Yellow Pages Goes Green: Opting Out of Phone Book Delivery is Vital For Consumers and Environment

Companies which print paper books are burning 3.2 kilowatt of electricity per hour and wasting over 7,200,000 barrels of fossil fuel.

We believe that you shouldn't have to bear the cost of recycling something you didn't ask for in the first place. If we want a phone book, we'll ask for one.”

— Michael Keegan

NORTHPORT, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — YellowPagesGoesGreen.org ("YPGG"), a telephone directory at the forefront of the environmentally-conscious "Green" movement, is announcing the greater-than-ever need to participate in the national "out-out" movement regarding unwanted home delivery of print telephone directories. With a vast array of digital and internet-based alternatives available to consumers to consult to get the information they need, the very concept of the traditional phone book is a relic best consigned to history's garbage heap, and opting out of its delivery is not only a great way to reduce clutter in your life, but to also safeguard the environment as well.

An innovator in digital business and telephone directory listings and an advocate for staunch environmentalism, YellowPagesGoesGreen.org is a cutting-edge website that delivers over 28.5 million up-to-the-minute Yellow Page listings and over 200 million White page listings throughout the United States. In addition, YPGG is a pioneer in the national phone book "opt-out" movement that seeks to abolish obsolete print telephone directories that are not only out-of-date by the time they land on doorsteps, but find themselves clogging landfills by the millions shortly thereafter.

Every year, thousands upon thousands of phone books land upon the stoops of people who almost never even crack them open once, as their needs in that regard are already fulfilled by any number of digital alternatives, such as YPGG, easily and instantly accessible via devices such as smartphones, tablet computers, and laptops, just to name a few.

However, despite the uselessness of phone books in this day and age, much of the populace is unaware of the option to opt-out of their delivery; they instead simply accept these clumsy and out-of-date tomes as a part of everyday life that they've always known. But if they took a moment to see how destructive they are – in addition to how unnecessary – they would likely be far more inclined to take the simple step of opting out of their delivery once and for all by visiting YPGG's website: https://www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org/opt-out.php. Once there, it's just a matter of clicking the "opt-out" button and following a few easy steps to forever sever yourself from print phone directory delivery, stopping the unsolicited delivery of 540 million books per year.

Opting out of phone book delivery can help the Earth in many ways. First, it helps conserve energy, as the companies that print them are burning up 3.2 kilowatt of electricity per hour and wasting over 7,200,000 barrels of fossil fuel, in addition to many other finite natural resources. Secondly, opting out also helps to save trees, as already over 19,000,000 of them have been gobbled up to serve the publishing needs of phone book companies. Thirdly, phone books are expensive and difficult to recycle – on the rare occasions that the average person even bothers to do so – due to the specific nature of the paper fiber used. And finally, opting out saves the consumer time, as using online alternatives such as YPGG makes it far easier for them to find up-to date-listings for people and businesses, doing in mere moments what would take far, far longer with an actual physical book.

"YellowPagesGoesGreen.org isn't against the telephone books themselves, but the unwanted delivery of five pounds of paper to people's doorsteps," said YPGG CEO and President, Michael Keegan. "We believe that you shouldn't have to bear the cost of recycling something you didn't ask for in the first place. If we want a phone book, we'll ask for one."

As you can see, opting-out of home delivery of print telephone directories makes sense in every conceivable way that you could look at it. It saves time, it's more efficient, and it's best for the planet. Opt out today and do your part to make the Earth a cleaner, greener place for us all to live.

Yellow Pages Directory Inc., owner of both YellowPagesGoesGreen.org and PaperlessPetition.org, offers an environmentally-friendly Web-based alternative to paper telephone directories while providing a simple and convenient mechanism for customers to opt out from the receipt of printed yellow books. Both web sites have been instrumental in promoting opt-out awareness across the United States over the past several years, and allowing users to reduce their own environmental footprints in the process. Yellow Pages Directory Inc. has also taken steps to reduce its own impact on the environment through the use of the most up-to-date and energy-efficient web-hosting services available.

Can Start-Up Device Makers Tap Into IoT?

Tatu Karvinen , Managing Director, Convergentia

They can with simulation aided design solutions says Tatu Karvinen, Managing Director of Finnish Insight Engineering firm Convergentia

Designing a connected product requires specialist expertise in antenna, EMC, mechanics and thermal design, and calls for time-consuming prototyping and testing”

— Tatu Karvinen , Managing Director, Convergentia

OULU, FINLAND, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to all technology forecasters, tens of billions of devices will be connected through wireless networks globally in the not too distant future. Digitalization has ignited a proliferation of connected devices in all sectors of life and business and this will translate into growing revenues for device makers.

In the past, only a handful of established device makers were able to create blockbuster gadgets for world markets. But that’s changing. With the advent of IoT, hundreds of small start-ups are trying to cash-in and mimic the big manufacturers and bring new devices to global markets at a fraction of the price. Crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter are flooded by these projects.

But, competition is tough and making a connected consumer product for global distribution is not easy. So, how can device makers speed up time to market without jeopardizing the quality and user-experience of their products?

Designing a connected product requires specialist expertise in antenna, EMC, mechanics and thermal design, and calls for time-consuming prototyping and testing. Let’s delve deeper.

Antenna: Nowadays, many devices feature metal casings, which is a very challenging operating environment for an antenna. Antennas are found in increasingly smaller devices and in devices held near or inside human body. Hearing aids, smart watches sensors, smart rings are typical examples.

The small size of the device and the proximity of the human body put special high demands on the concept of an antenna. Antennas require high efficiency and design for high-frequency 5G devices is really challenging. Propagation, range and carrying capabilities at high frequency are lower and that poses a profound demand on manufacturers. In antenna design, requirements vary by country and region and compliance with official requirements requires special expertise in design.

EMC: the operating environment for smart devices is becoming more demanding as the volume (quantities) is growing. Devices should not interfere with signals from other devices or interfere with others. Such reliability is particularly important in health and military environments, but also in standard mobile devices for the consumer. A touch screen often causes interference with the receiver.

Designing effective EMC solutions has traditionally been hit and miss and rely on hope that it will somehow work. Through simulations, the design process can be undertaken in a precise and controlled way. Typically, a device maker understands its EMC design needs only after the build phase when the problem is detected. With simulations and lab measurements, the problem can be analyzed early and accurately.

Thermal: more and more power is required from devices, leading to more powerful batteries and processors. LED displays tend to heat up especially in handheld devices, and this often causes problems with user safety and comfort. There is also a set of specifications for the warming of the equipment that manufacturers have to conform to in order to get a product on the market. Of course, it is far more effective to design a device according to a specification from the beginning than to hope that an already made design conforms to a specification.

Simulations can be used to find at an early stage what solution will work and what will not. In most cases, simulations are applied for corrections to the existing design to match the specification. Also, the power consumption of 5G base stations is really high, which also requires accurate thermal design to prevent cooling problems.

Mechanics: Equipment transported can carry more than before, meaning they have to endure a wide variety of applications in environments. For example, the wearable sector's growth is reflected in this trend. Various devices must withstand body moisture, under water use and other challenging conditions. For example, simulation of drop, vibration and seal tests can be used to avoid large and costly prototype cycles that are often needed to make durable products. Assembly simulations such be used to avoid assembly problems.

Abstracts
Start-up equipment manufacturers often take a reverse approach to device design. It’s not unusual for them to take a cheap Chinese bulk antenna only to discover after extensive and costly prototype rounds and testing that it does not work at all.

This “instant” engineering approach often proves more expensive than if the antenna was custom designed to fit the device right from the start. The same can be said for every other design area. Early phase engineering should be taken into account first in the product development process. It will save both time and money. Simulations and virtual prototypes can also be used to effectively compare different concepts such as component changes.

Convergentia is showcasing its simulation aided design solutions at the Mobile World Congress Americas in Los Angeles in September 12-14th at the Finland Pavilion (Stand 1360). Other telecom, video, cybersecurity and IoT companies showcasing at the Finland Pavilion are Bcaster, Cloudstreet, Creanord, Exomi, F-Secure, Kaitotek, Sitowise and Tosibox.

Finland Pavilion is organized and funded by Business Finland’s Connectivity from Finland business acceleration program. Business Finland is fully-owned by the Finnish Government.

his report provides test results and reviews of security products for smartphones running Google’s Android operating system.

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This Andrdoid Mobile Security Review and Test performed by AV-Comparatives provides test results and reviews of security products for smartphones running Google’s Android operating system. Amongst other things, this report aims to help readers decide whether they would benefit from the more comprehensive and sophisticated security features provided by a third-party security app.

Please finde the report here:
https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/mobile-security-review-2018/#avc-undroid-analyzer

Besides the reviews, which cover the user experience of the apps, the results of comprehensive tests on malware protection rates and battery consumption are provided as well. Additionally, a short table at the end of each product report gives an overview of any anti-theft functions included in that product. Many of the reviewed and tested apps have components which are not security-related, such as power and memory optimizers and data backup tools.

The review mainly focuses on the security features – anti-malware, anti-theft, and privacy – and only mentions further functionalities briefly. The structure of each product report is identical, allowing readers to compare products easily.

The main purpose of a mobile security product is to protect users and their devices from potential harm inflicted by malicious apps, fraudulent mails, or phishing URLs. Readers should note that recent Android versions incorporate some basic anti-malware features. For example, Google’s built-in malware scanner Play Protect checks apps during installation from the Google Play store or a third-party source and scans the device continuously for any threats. Google’s Safe Browsing API protects against malware and phishing links when the user is surfing the Internet using the Chrome browser.

Furthermore, an anti-theft component in a security app could be used to find a lost or stolen phone, and/or prevent access to any personal data stored on the device. Basic anti-theft features (lock, locate, alarm, and wipe) are already provided by recent versions of Android via Google’s Find My Device function.

On the following pages, we provide a brief overview of the risks facing smartphone users from malware and the loss or theft of their device, and discuss the benefits of security apps. We start by recapping Android Oreo’s new features and security behaviour changes. Furthermore, we will argue why it is not advisable to rely only on built-in malware protection features (all latest and newer Android devices are already equipped with such functions), but instead install a third-party anti-virus app to be better protected against security threats. After that, we give a short summary of security features and their main sub-components commonly implemented in typical security apps for Android.

At the end of the introduction, we list the participating security products, and present the results of the malware and battery drain tests. Detailed reviews of the individual products follow, in which we will shed light on the layout and usage of the features. In the table representing a product’s anti-theft features, we comment on each function briefly and use the following symbols to indicate how well it worked in our tests.

Google Play Protect

In May 2017, Google announced its new built-in malware protection for Android, Play Protect, which checks apps and APK files when they are downloaded using the Google Play store app or third-party sources. Since August 2017, it has been available on all Android devices with Google Play Services 11 or later, and is preinstalled on devices with Android 8.0 and later. Play Protect constantly monitors the device and all the user’s data, and notifies the user of any security risks found. It also scans the Google Play store and all installed apps for any signs of malware, and includes the three functions malware scanner, device loss (Find My Device), and safe browsing.

One might think that third-party anti-virus apps are no longer necessary for Android devices, due to Google’s built-in malware and protection features. This might be true for Android devices with Play Protect integrated into the preinstalled Google Play store app. However, some Android devices (e.g., Amazon’s Fire line) do not benefit from the built-in malware protection of Play Protect as they do not run Google apps by default.

Please finde the report here:
https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/mobile-security-review-2018/#avc-undroid-analyzer

Free Security Service Available:

At this point, we would like to recommend AVC UnDroid, our Android app analysis tool, which is available free to all users. It is a static analysis system for detecting suspected Android malware and adware and providing statistics about it. Users can upload APK files and see the results in various analysis mechanisms.

The global Regtech market is expected to grow to the CAGR of 48% by 2018-2020

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is used in modeling, scenario analysis and forecasting, and particularly for “stress test” in regtech sector

HYDERABAD, TELANGANA, INDIA, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Regtech is application of cloud computing through software as a service (SaaS). Regtech is a software technology to address regulatory and compliance challenges in different sectors such as finance, healthcare and cyber security. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is used in modeling, scenario analysis and forecasting, and particularly for “stress test” in regtech sector.

Finance Regtech industry is accepting the AI technology with open arms across the globe. But the process of adopting regtech is not easy, as some challenges are popping out frequently. The biggest challenge is people are still reluctant to accept the change because of fear of replacement by machine. Furthermore management buy-in, cultural change and traditional method are some other barriers in adoption of AI in regtech. Lack of structured data and transparency in process makes it less appealing for regtech sector.

In order to deal with these challenges regtech providers should ensure that their offerings must specify risk typologies and taxonomies. They should ensure that data flow and architectural design, as well as metrics, reporting and dashboard modules are robust and uses more analytical approaches to address underlying risk and operational issues. Some of regtech startups are gaining popularity in 2018 such as encompass, Onfido, Qualtrax and Suade.

You Are The Biggest IoT Security Threat!

Kimmo Aura, Program Director, Business Finland

Security is overlooked. Kimmo Aura, Program Director, Business Finland, Connectivity from Finland’s telecom acceleration program reviews IoT security today.

In IoT, whether consumer or industrial, humans are the biggest and hardest security problem to fix. ”

— Kimmo Aura, Program Director, Business Finland

HELSINKI, FINLAND, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lack of security is present in the consumer IoT market, personal and home devices and services as well as in the industrial IoT (IIoT) sector. Based on different research sources, the underlying reasons for security threats in the consumer and industrial markets are different, but the risks and damages to both can be irreparable and immeasurable in economic terms.

Consumer IoT Security

Over the next two years, the number of IoT devices entering households is predicted to climb steeply from nine devices per household currently to 500 by 2022 according to Gartner with IoT connectivity being bundled into products whether people want it or not.

According to a research funded by F-Secure, the leading cyber-security technology house, many IoT devices would go unprotected because consumers do not know how to change the manufacturers’ default security settings.

The drive to be the first to market has meant that many manufacturers have not even considered the security implications of their devices. They have either not built appropriate security measures, use inadequate measures or, in some cases, provide no settings at all.

Of even greater concern is the potential for IoT devices to be turned into eavesdropping mechanisms that can hear and see what is going on wherever they have been deployed. Online criminals could even access and control biometric data such as fingerprints, voices and facial images stored as digital data.

Long, deliberately unwieldy and confusing terms and conditions associated with the use of devices that users are practically forced to sign up, gives manufacturers the right to collect private data and control how its device is being used. Consumers largely remain oblivious to potential implications.

Lack of awareness will also result in significant security risks to individuals since IoT devices with limited security will easily connect to home Wi-Fi networks and other radio protocols such as Bluetooth, Zigbee and Z-Wave and use those networks to link to other devices such as computers, handheld appliances and mobile phones.

Industrial IoT Security

According to the 2018 SANS Industrial IoT Security Survey Report, most organisations globally are looking at a 10 to 25 per cent growth in the number of their connected devices. This will lead to the systems that are connected to IIoT devices to double in size every three to seven years.

Consequently, enterprises see network complexity as the single biggest reason for IoT security threats. Data, firmware, embedded systems and general endpoints are identified as the most vulnerable parts of IoT systems. Systems are scattered across numerous sites hosting autonomous end-points, which make configurations difficult to manage. The SANS poll also discovered that complex systems will open a responsibility issue. IoT professionals define IIoT endpoints differently and this in turn will become the basis for confusion surrounding responsibility for IIoT security.

In IIoT, the security issue is not in the software and hardware security features. According to Tosibox, the pioneering IoT company founded to make security easy, the only way to overcome the security threats due to complexity is to minimize the amount of manual configuration work. Its solutions are unique due to highly simplified and automated network and device configuration. This minimizes manual work, and thereby reduces the likelihood of human errors.

Abstract

In IoT, whether consumer or industrial, humans are the biggest and hardest security problem to fix. End users often lack adequate tech skills, or do not care about the simplest security measures such as changing the default password. Sometimes it is product managers of device manufacturers who decide to trade security for faster time to market and higher bottom line. Sometimes it is IT managers or experts who get blown away by the gigantic complexity that this exponentially growing IoT system causes.

Organisations still feel vulnerable to attack despite implementing cybersecurity standards

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to IT Governance’s ISO 27001 Global Report, there was a 25% increase in data breaches in 2017, making cybersecurity a top concern for organisations worldwide. The report found that 60% of organisations that have implemented cybersecurity standards believe it is likely that they are still a target for an attack.

Key findings from the report:

• ISO 27001 and the GDPR: Nearly half (43%) will be implementing an ISO 27001- compliant ISMS (information security management system) to enable them to maintain compliance with the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
• ISO 27001 and competitive advantage: more than half (57%) the respondents implemented this standard specifically to gain a competitive advantage
• The overwhelming majority (89%) of organisations believe the single greatest benefit of implementing ISO 27001 will improve their information security
• ISO 27001 and benefits: Two thirds of organisations believe implementing ISO 27001 improves their security posture – 3% jump from the 2015 report and 2016 report.
• ISO 27001 supply chain security: Nearly half (41%) said customers inquired about their ISO 27001 status, a 4% increase from 2016

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Unfortunately, as long as cybercrime remains a lucrative trade, risks will continue to escalate, and attackers will continue to proliferate. To counter this, organisations need to be fully prepared. ISO 27001, an information security standard designed to minimize risks and mitigate damage, offers the preparedness organisations need.”

About the Report

Conducted online, the survey polled 128 people worldwide. Sixty four percent of respondents were from Europe, 20% from Asia, 9% from North America, 5% from Africa and 2% from South America. Respondents work within the technology and media, professional services, finance and manufacturing, supply and construction business sectors. To view the report in full please click here.
