So far, users have uploaded an enormous amount of 350 billion photos, and nearly 35 million people update their status every day on Facebook platform. With such numbers, it is very difficult to verify the content posted on the platform, which in a considerable number of cases violates community standards. In order to stop this dangerous process, the company had to undertake more technologically demanding solutions, so that it operates in accordance with legal and ethical standards.
Facebook Community Standards
The aforementioned Community Standards are the key for fighting with abuses on the platform. They are simply guidelines developed by Facebook’s employees, which list what is allowed and what is forbidden. They are based on user feedback and expert advice in areas such as technology, public safety and human rights. They apply to all users, are valid worldwide, and apply to all types of content. They have been divided into categories concerning: violence and illegal behaviour, security, objectionable content, integrity and authenticity, and even protection of intellectual property. Each of them describes specific behaviours/content that are strictly prohibited, and the catalogue itself grows with emerging socials problems. The most significant and widespread problem with violations of these standards is hate speech.
Along with the development of technology, which gives us more and more opportunities, the risk of cyber-attacks on our personal data is also growing. Hackers are using more and more sophisticated methods of compromising security to achieve their goal. One of the forms of cybercrime is spoofing, i.e. a group of attacks on ICT systems consisting in impersonating another element of the IT system, the effect of which is achieved by placing prepared data packets on the network or incorrect use of protocols.
The term “spoof” dates back over a century and refers to any form of trickery. However, today it is mostly used when talking about cybercrime. Spoofing is the act of disguising a communication from an unknown source as being from a known, trusted source, which can apply to emails, phone calls, and websites, or can be more technical, such as a computer spoofing an IP address, Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), or Domain Name System (DNS) server. It can be used to gain access to a target’s personal information, spread malware through infected links or attachments, bypass network access controls, or redistribute traffic to conduct a denial-of-service attack. Also it is a good way to gains access to someone’s device in order to execute a larger cyber-attack. Successful attacks can lead to infected computer systems and networks, data breaches, and loss of revenue – all liable to affect the organization’s public reputation. In addition, spoofing that leads to the rerouting of internet traffic can overwhelm networks or lead customers to malicious sites aimed at stealing information or distributing malware.

The Polish Ministry of Finance on 20 October 2021 issued a specification for the National e-Invoicing System (NeIS), providing tips for software developers wishing to integrate their programs with NeIS (API). This specification is not a source of law, but is only a set of guidelines for developers. The NeIS test environment website (https://ksef-test.mf.gov.pl/) does not contain a graphical user interface for uploading or downloading invoices. It contains material intended for IT departments working on integration with NeIS. This address is also used by the published API. The logical structures used by the API, the OpenApi (formerly Swagger) documentation and editor, and the test environment public key have been made available. For the time being, no descriptive interface specification has been published, as was the case for e-Declaration or the Single Control File. It has been indicated that the test version will use self-generated signatures and seals for authorisation in NeIS, the test version does not offer authorisation via the Trusted Profile and token at this point. Invoices will be submitted using the API provided in batch or interactive mode. An Official Delivery Certificate will be available with a list of invoices sent in a batch packet or during an interactive session. The provided service will verify the correctness of the sent invoices with the working version of the XSD schema. The API introduces permissions that can be assigned to a system user. A privilege management facility is provided that will allow to view, grant and revoke privileges. The types of roles available in the process are also indicated. It is worth noting that the message states that it is planned to make the use of e-Invoice mandatory for entrepreneurs in Poland from 2023.
