 OSHA Suspends Rule to Report Injury Data Electronically

The Labor Department suspended an Obama-era rule requiring companies to electronically report their injury and illness records last Wednesday. This effectively keeps these records from being publicly disclosed for the immediate future.

Several business groups, including the Associated Builders & Contractors, Associated General Contractors of America and the National Association of Home Builders, challenged the 2016 Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule in court and lobbied the administration to abandon it on the grounds that it could unfairly damage the reputation of some of their members.
Between 1995 and 2012, OSHA required about 180,000 establishments in high-hazard industries to submit the summary data by mail. But the program cost $2 million a year to run, and officials decided to expand the requirement and transition it to an electronic system instead. Read more

3 Ways Hackers Get Into Your System

Cyber crime is going low-tech. Turns out it's easier to trick a human than hack through a network's firewall. That's why cyber thieves are changing their tactics. They're using scams traditional criminals have relied on for years.


Pretexting means the criminal pretends to have an existing relationship with the victim or someone the victim knows. The traditional version sounds something like this: "I saw Bob this morning and he wanted me to drop off these boxes. Could you let me into the warehouse?"

Phishing (pronounced "fishing")
In phishing scams, the criminal tricks victims into divulging personal information by pretending to be from a trusted organization. Traditional con artists use the same tactic in fraud schemes: "This is Michael from the IRS. There is an error with your tax return, and we need to verify your ID. Please tell me your DOB and social security number."

Dancing Pigs
The idea is based on a statement by digital security expert Edward Felten: "Given a choice between dancing pigs and security, users will pick dancing pigs every time." In other words, if we want to see a funny video, most of us click "Ignore" on the security warning. Read more.
