A new report from Juniper Research found that the cost of data breaches will rise from $3 trillion each year to over $5 trillion in 2024, an average annual growth of 11%. This will primarily be driven by increasing fines for data breaches as regulation tightens, as well as a greater proportion of business lost as enterprises become more dependent on the digital realm.

This Week's News
Key-copying kiosks pose new threats to buildings that use electronic access cards, according to security experts. KeyMe, founded in 2012, has self-service kiosks located in retailers across the U.S. - including 7-Eleven, Bed Bath & Beyond, Safeway, Sears, Rite Aid and more. The company rolled out its machines as a cheap and easy way to copy brass keys.
Now, the company is expanding its machines capable of duplicating electronic keys - like RFID cards and fobs to offices, residential buildings and vehicles. It can also code the RFID key into a sticker. It cost a CBS News journalist just $25 to copy an apartment building key fob.Full Story
As one of the most recognised lock brands in the domestic and commercial market, Fullex was pleased to unveil its latest development - an electronic locking system, at this year's MLA Expo at The International Centre, Telford (4-6th October).
The exhibition presented a valuable opportunity to gauge the market's response to the prototype electronic lock, before its launch in January 2020. Aimed at standard multi-point locks requiring a lifting motion to lock the door, it is designed for new doors and retro-fitting into existing ones.
The ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware & Access Control Group is pleased to announce the launch of a new intumescent kit range, which ensures the integrity of a fire doorset is not compromised by morticed ironmongery. These new kits will be available for some of the brand's most popular CE marked locks, hinges and latches.
Morticing can cause hinges, locks, latches and concealed door closers to no longer meet the requirements for fire door safety.
Packed with a long list of new features designed to improve the user experience, interoperability and cyber security, Wisenet WAVE 4.0 has an enhanced system architecture which ensures high availability and supports scalable deployments by allowing up to 100 servers to be merged into a single system.
