More officers, better technology: Home Team unveils security roadmap

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

SINGAPORE: The Republic faces three main security challenges – terrorism; transnational and cyber crime; and domestic challenges – which will require the right strategy and additional resources to address, said Deputy Prime Minister and Home Affairs Minister Teo Chee Hean on Friday (Mar 6). To counter these threats, the Ministry of Home Affairs’ (MHA) expenditure will increase by 11.7 per cent in the coming fiscal year. Over the next five years, the ministry’s expenditure will increase from 1.1 per cent of nominal GDP in FY2014 to 1.3 per cent, said Mr Teo at the Committee of Supply 2015 debate in Parliament. About 2,000 more officers will be added to its current pool in five years. Much of the expenditure increase will go into an increase in spending on new systems and technology, with development expenditure rising from 8 per cent in the past five years to 20 per cent in the coming five years. THE TERRORISM THREAT The threat of terrorism has been driven home in recent months by the Sydney siege last December, Paris attacks in January and Copenhagen shooting last month, as well as the rise of the Islamic State. “The Home Team will continue to deter and […]

More criminals being caught due to cloud technology

HOUSTON – When Randy Schaefer’s iPad was stolen he never thought he’d see it again. The device, along with $5,000 cash were stolen when his truck was broken into while parked on the street in front of his home in his River Oaks neighborhood. Then, Schaefer found selfies of two men posing with a wad of cash on his iCloud account. “There were several pictures,” Schaefer said. “There were about 15 pictures.” The two even made a video bragging about their crime. The video was uploaded to the Internet and went viral, making national headlines. “Hello America. This is Dorian from the Money Team. This is my brother, Dillan, also Money Team, and this my good people is what we get from a good night’s hustle,” the man who called himself Dorian said as he held up a stack of $100 bills. “We doing ‘Big Face Ben’ over here [in reference to Benjamin Franklin] new, old, we just hustle. Don’t worry about how.” But, there was just one thing they were apparently unaware of when they snapped the selfies and video; the iPad was backed up to Schaefer’s iCloud, and led police straight to them. “I feel relieved they finally […]

 Powered by Max Banner Ads Until now, DNA left at the scene of a crime only proves useful if it is already stored in a database and can be matched to a suspect. But a team of forensic experts have devised a way to recreate the face of a person, including eye and skin colour, using as little as 50 picograms (0.05 nanograms) of extracted DNA. Called DNA phenotyping, the tests also determine the person’s ancestry, if they have freckles and can be used to match with distant relatives. DNA phenotyping is the prediction of physical appearance from DNA and is a technique being pioneered by Virginia-based Parabon Nanolabs. The technology can be used to generate leads in criminal cases where there are no suspects or database hits, or to help identify remains, for example. Samples can be potentially taken from as little as a fingerprint. Parabon’s Snapshot Forensic system is said to be able to accurately predict genetic ancestry, eye colour, hair colour, skin colour, freckling, and face shape in individuals from any ethnic background. Each prediction is presented with a ‘measure of confidence’. As an example, the test can say a person has green eyes with 61 per cent confidence, […]

SINGAPORE-INTERNET-HACKING-ANONYMOUS

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Freelance journalist and activist Barrett Brown was sentenced to 63 months in federal prison Thursday on charges of threatening an FBI agent and obstructing a federal investigation into his reporting on the anarchist hacking collective Anonymous. Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of more than eight years, while his defense had asked for time served. Brown has been in jail for 28 months on charges originally stemming from his posting of a link to credit card information dumped on the Web by Anonymous member Jeremy Hammond. The card data belonged to thousands of customers of the private security firm Stratfor, and Hammond dumped it on an Internet bulletin board along with emails and other confidential data after hacking the company’s website. Brown posted a link to the dump in a chat room — something he said he did to facilitate “crowdsourcing” of research into the documents. Brown pleaded guilty to three charges in the case, down from the dozen initially filed against him. He admitted to transmitting a threat, obstruction and being an accessory after the fact to unauthorized computer access due to his relationship with Hammond, who was convicted of the Stratfor hack in November 2013. The case has […]
