    La connectivité inégalée de l'ère numérique a créé des énormes avantages socioéconomiques. Quatre sur chaque cinq maisons au Royaume-Uni ont accès à l'internet ; les deux cinquièmes des adultes sont des utilisateurs de smartphone et, en moyenne, chaque ménage a trois types d'appareil compatible internet. Mais l'omniprésence de la technologie a apporté avec elle des défis nouveaux pour la sécurité en ligne. Une forte augmentation des menaces du cyberespace a mis à rude épreuve la capacité des organismes à maintenir une vulnérabilité des systèmes de gestion mis à jour. Clairement, l'avance sur cyberhazards de plus en plus sophistiqués et complexes est un défi pour les décideurs qui cherchent à préserver notre bien-être économique. Il y a des signes que le gouvernement est conscient du problème croissant de la cybercriminalité, quand il a récemment annoncé qu'une unité nationale sur la cybercriminalité devait être établi au sein de l'Agence nationale de la criminalité. Lors du lancement de l'appareil, le ministre de la sécurité, James Brokenshire, dit que ce serait un seul plomb UK pour lutter contre la cybercriminalité ; fournir une réponse d'enquête spécialisée et rapide-temps afin d'éliminer les possibilités de la cybercriminalité, notamment grâce à une collaboration étroite avec des partenaires tels que les agences de renseignement.

  • Are cyber cops ready to click in the state? http://www.getjealous.com/luwwamatha/journal/2757828/an-abney-associates-cyber-breach-warning.html AHMEDABAD: The ball has started rolling finally for the ambitious cyber security programmeof the state home department with a budgetary allocation of Rs 25 crore and commitment of deploying 300-plus personnel on the job in all districts of the state. The senior police officials are hopeful of the new venture's success in light of rising cyber crimes across the world. Rajnikant Patel, the minister of state for home, had mentioned in the state assembly recently that the home department plans to establish cyber security cells in all districts of the state. For this purpose, the department has earmarked a budget of Rs 25 crore.

    When contacted, the senior state police officials said that the extensive plan includes establishment of a separate department at state level headed by a superintendent of police rank officer along with a staff of 16 officers and personnel at Gandhinagar. The department will function on lines of economic offences wing (EOW) that investigates the cases routed through district and city police units and will be put under CID (crime) hierarchy. The office will also work as coordination unit between various units established at district levels. Manoj Agarwal, inspector general of police, State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB), stated that the step of establishing cyber security cells has been taken to ensure better reach...

  • http://www.zdnet.com/is-cybercrime-more-of-a-threat-than-terrorism-7000012526/ Is cybercrime more of a threat than terrorism? Cyberattacks are rising, and we are currently witnessing a mad governmental scrabble to gather enough resources to keep infrastructure and businesses safe from such threats. However, considering the apparent ease which many hackers can infiltrate systems -- whether taking down a bank with a DDoS attack or tampering with an emergency broadcast system to declare to viewers live that the dead have risen and are attacking the living -- it may be too little, too late. Security firms and experts have been screaming into the wind for long enough that unless more security staff are trained and more investment is placed in combating cybercrime, core services and business systems are at risk -- and as yesterday's events show, this appears to be the case On Tuesday, as reported by Reuters, intelligence chiefs ousted terrorism as the "top threat" facing the United States, and instead replaced it with cybercrime. The report notes that digitalassaults on governmental targets have risen, and more importantly, as technology is evolving at such a rapid pace, it is difficult to keep up.

  • http://www.indianexpress.com/news/pnb-told-to-pay-largest-cyber-crime-compensation-of-rs-45-lakh/1083776/ In the largest compensation awarded in legal adjudication of a cyber crime dispute, Maharashtra's IT secretary Rajesh Aggarwal has ordered Punjab National Bank to pay Rs 45 lakh to Manmohan Singh Matharu, MD of Pune-based firm Poona Auto Ancillaries. A fraudster had transferred Rs 80.10 lakh from Matharu's account in PNB, Pune after Matharu responded to a phishing email. The amount was allegedly moved to two PNB accounts in Gujarat and one in Mumbai after being parked temporarily in the PNB account of Sutlej Textiles in Kathua, Jammu & Kashmir.
    The fraudster had apparently "tested" a Rs 1,000 transaction before going for bigger transfers. Matharu has been asked to share the liability since he responded to the phishing mail. Matharu's is one of 13 e-fraud cases, all originating in Maharashtra and with an imprint across six states, in which the state's IT secretary, serving as an adjudicating officer under the IT Act 2000, last month passed critical orders against nine banks, four telcom firms and two mobile recharge portals. http://www.wattpad.com/12260034-abney-and-associates-hong-kong-shares-trim-strong http://www.quora.com/Clausen-Holmberg/Abney-Associates

    ABNEY ASSOCIATES - Google vs Kina: det är på http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Google-vs-China-Its-On-191854281.html Banker, militären, tryck, tech företag, även läsk - anklagelserna har aldrig varit vassare: USA är i cyberkrig mot Kina. Senaste påståendet kommer från Googles VD Eric Schmidt, som ropar Kina som cyber fiende nr 1 i en kommande bok, "Den nya digitala tidsåldern." Men han är inte ensam. Amerikanska underrättelsetjänsten tjänstemän säger att de kan spåra de senaste cyberattacker till den kinesiska armén själv. En berättelse i New York Times publicerat tisdag Detaljer hur en kinesiska armén enhet tros ha hackat USA. Dessa attacker är att skulden för att störa allt från New York Times att Coca Cola, som anklagar hacka för att störa en planerad affär att köpa en kinesisk dryck företag. Kina förnekar naturligtvis bedriver någon typ av cyber-spionage. I ett uttalande sade senatorn Diane Feinstein: "flera amerikanska källor har tagit upp frågan om IT-attacker med kinesiska samtalspartner — allt till ingen nytta. I själva verket har man fullständigt förnekande bland kineserna som detta sker. Jag har personligen tagit upp it-attacker med kinesiska tjänstemän så sent som förra veckan. Igen, fullständigt förnekande." Google, som säger det spåras en 2010 cyber attack mot sig själv till kinesiska hackare, säger att det har varit upptagna med att arbeta att hålla sin plats (och därför sina användare) säkert.

  • In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had signed an executive order (EO) on cybersecurity. The order uses a standard-setting approach to improve cybersecurity. However, such a model will only impose costs, encourage compliance over security, keep the U.S. tied to past threats, and threaten innovation. While the EO does take some positive steps in the area of information sharing, these steps are hamstrung by the EO’s inability to provide critical incentives such as liability protection. As a result, this order could result in few modest changes, or it could result in substantial negative effects.

    The Scope of the Order The EO uses a very broad definition of critical infrastructure, defining it as “systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.” Such a broad definition could be understood to include systems normally considered outside the cybersecurity conversation, such as agriculture. While there is no way of knowing how far implementation will actually go, this broad definition is certainly concerning. Inhibited Information Sharing In Section 4, the EO attempts to expand information sharing in several noteworthy ways. It calls for the federal government to quickly move unclassified information to the privat...
