“Fraud protection needs to be improved – it needs to be real-time” – Tech Consultant Chris Green
A new report claims it’s “frighteningly easy" for cybercriminals to get security details for a Visa debit or credit card. According to research published by Newcastle University, fraudsters used a form of "guesswork", called a Distributed Guessing Attack, to work out expiry dates and security code numbers by making multiple invalid attempts. Share Radio’s Matt Cox spoke to tech consultant Chris Green to understand the research better.

Why is the number of agency workers set to reach one million by 2020 and what are the disadvantages they face?

This is according to a report by the Resolution Foundation entitled "Secret Agents: agency workers in the new world of work". The think tank estimates a full-time agency worker gets £430 less than an employee in the same role. To discuss the findings in more detail, Simon spoke to Dan Tomlinson, a researcher at the Resolution Foundation.
