The United States is vulnerable to cyber-attacks of every ilk, from theft to all-out war. This was the message delivered Tuesday evening at Claremont McKenna’s Athenaeum by Richard Clarke, CEO of the Good Harbor Security Risk Management company. Mr. Clarke, whose talk was called “Cybersecurity in 2015: from Theft to Destruction,” brings a lot of experience to bear on the subject. Among his accomplishments are a decade as a White House official, during which time he counseled three consecutive presidents on national security in the information age. The ways corporate and governmental security can be breached via computer are myriad, and their execution technical. Mr. Clarke sought to simplify things by breaking down the four main types of digital attacks. They can be remembered via the acronym CHEW, which stands for cyber-crime, cyber-hacktivism, cyber-espionage and cyber-war. Cyber-crime represents basic theft, in which an individual or individuals reach into peoples’ accounts and remove money, and is a pretty well-known problem. Cyber-hacktivism is when a group, unhappy with the actions of another group, hacks into their system in order to embarrass or sabotage them. In a way, the Sony Pictures Entertainment Hack, which took place last November, is a case of cyber-hacktivism, […]

Rural crime forum highlights illegal pig hunting problem

At a rural crime forum in Gunnedah, primary producers voiced their concerns to police. Farmer Peter Middlebrook said he had tried to confront the hunters, who often steal diesel and vandalise fences and tanks. He said not enough was being done to prevent these pig chasers from trespassing. “It virtually happens every week at home. They come from the local villages and they are usually only hobos that don’t have farms themselves,” he said “Two years ago, we lost $45,000 worth of gear out of our sheds, that’s diesel, compressors, welders. They must have had a damn semitrailer to take it all away. We rang the police and they left a card. “A police station in a town Gunnedah’s size that only works from eight till five and no weekends, I think that’s appalling in this day and age. “If we could control the pig hunters and let on who we want to let on, not the bloke who’s going to cut your diesel tank and let it all down the drain, I think we’d be far better off.” Unmanned aircraft could be the future Farmer Kerry Swain said drone technology might eventually be the answer to patrolling property boundaries.

Intel Security warns of six social engineering techniques targeting businesses

The report encourages businesses to address and educate employees on the “six levers of influence” being used in the digital world by hackers. According to the report endorsed by the European Cyber Crime Centre (EC3), all businesses and employees should be aware of the basic persuasion techniques commonly used by cyber criminals. These techniques are used by cyber criminals to manipulate employees to do things they would not usually do, often resulting in the loss of money or valuable data. Many of these social engineering techniques are used in spam and phishing emails to trick employees into revealing login credentials and other key information or clicking on links to malware. The report comes just days after spear phishing attacks were identified as the key initial step in what has been described in the most daring cyber heist to date, believed to have netted up to $1bn. Bank computers and networks were breached by targeted phishing attacks, demonstrating the inherent weakness in the “human firewall” and the need to educate employees about the top persuasion techniques in use in the digital world, the report said. Despite the huge role played by social engineering in cyber attacks, a recent study by Enterprise […]

Family fun during cold weather

Ferrell boys doing arts and craftsThe winter season brings along holidays, a new year, and freezing cold temperatures!  Families across the country are experiencing the effects of a polar blast that is expected to set weather records in many places across the nation. Due to inclement weather changes, many school districts and businesses are closed this week forcing students, and some parents, to stay home.

While the weather may be causing traveling pains, there’s plenty to do inside to keep your family entertained. Here are a few home activities that are sure to help your family bond during bad weather days:

Story telling

Sit down with your children and share some childhood memories of growing up. This is a great way for your child to learn a little more about you and perhaps some history, too!

Arts and Crafts

Bring out the creativity in your family fun time. An arts and crafts project is sure to distract your family from any inclement weather while serving as another great bonding activity.

Talent show

Let your star shine! Hosting a home talent show encourages a talent that you may not know your child possesses. Encourage your child to step outside their comfort zone by showing your talents (or lack thereof). This activity may encourage them to be more confident in other areas of life as well.

Click here for a list of other fun indoor activities to keep your family entertained during the freezing weather.

Cybersecurity: Tackling the threat from within

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

The firewalls, anti-virus software, mail-filters and other digital defences used across the business world are generally looking for external threats. But what if the bad guys are on the inside? What if your own employees are seeking to defraud your company by diverting cash, copying the customer database, or stealing sales leads? More than half of all people seeking to defraud a company are inside the fortress, suggest figures from consultancy PWC’s Global Crime Report. That figure has risen steadily over the past few years, the firm says, adding that it now seems to be younger staff who are spearheading the trend. The same survey also saw a change in the nature of fraud. Now, criminals are as likely to indulge in procurement fraud – making false company purchases, for example – as they are to steal cash or data. Fined billions “Internal fraud is a huge area,” says Laura Hutton of big data specialist SAS, “and it’s one that’s getting increased focus.” This is perhaps because scandals such as the Libor rate fixing have been exposed in recent years. Banks have been fined billions for their part in fixing rates that underpin trillions of pounds worth of loans and […]

HOUSTON A Houston man faces up to 30 years in prison in an identity theft and credit card scam targeting dozens of elderly people nationwide. Michael Irving pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and to aggravated identity theft in the $1.1 million scheme. Prosecutors in Houston say the 33-year-old Irving conspired to defraud Compass Bank and online payment service PayPal. Authorities say Irving and co-defendants in 2013 applied for and obtained credit cards through the use of stolen identities, targeting about 70 people. All of the victims were between the ages of 70 and 95. The credit cards were then used to get cash advances. source: http://www.star-telegram.com/news/state/texas/article10582940.html
