IBM distances itself from RT content

In the wake of the Ukraine war, global tech companies took steps to deplatform RT, the Russian-state controlled news operation that's widely considered a propaganda arm for Moscow. But Rumble, a video streaming platform that's become popular with conservatives for its free speech absolutism, stepped into the breach and gave RT a new home. IBM, through its IBM Cloud platform, was indirectly involved in the effort as part of Rumble's technical back end. The company tells CyberScoop it was not aware of this and, once notified, took "steps" to prevent RT content from being distributed via its products. AJ Vicens has the scoop.

FTC warns over misuse of sensitive data

The Federal Trade Commission issued a statement Monday affirming it will "vigorously enforce the law if we uncover illegal conduct that exploits Americans’ location, health, or other sensitive data." The announcement follows an executive order from President Joe Biden tasking the agency with protecting consumer reproductive health data. The FTC pointed to its recent settlement with period tracker Flo Health as the kind of enforcement companies could see if they expose sensitive user information. The agency says it will also be on the watch for firms making deceptive claims about anonymized data, which research shows can often easily be re-identified and aggregated with other data. Read the statement.


DHS seeks automated SBOM tools for enhanced supply chain visibility

The Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate wants to encourage tech companies to develop automated software bill of materials tools offering more visibility into supply chains. The DHS S&T Silicon Valley Innovation Program issued a five-year other transaction solicitation call for foundational open-source software libraries and other tools increasing the availability of trustworthy software bills of materials (SBOMs), machine-readable inventories of components and how they relate. Many federal contractors hope SBOMs become the standard for proving government-mandated compliance with the Secure Software Development Framework. But multiple data formats exist, prompting the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to seek translation tools and automated SBOM generators that plug into build systems. Dave Nyczepir has the story at FedScoop.
