In one case that occurred in 2003, cyber extortionist made use of the nature of digital evidence and threatened office employees that they would delete important files and plant incriminating pornographic pictures on their computers unless a ransom was paid. As a result, many employees actually ended up paying the ransoms because the easily alterable nature of digital evidence could have destroyed their reputations (Brenner, Brian and Henninger 2004). The digital nature of cybercrime can also make locating cyber criminals very difficult. Cyber-attacks are often carried out use different IP addresses which makes locating the cyber criminals an awfully challenging task. While GPS software
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act allows U.S. intelligence agencies to acquire foreign intelligence information by monitoring foreign persons in the USA and abroad. This act ensures that intelligence agencies can respond in time to terminate a security threat. The most important part of this act, the Section 702 forbids deliberate monitoring of US citizens and their communication. Technically NSA has been violating this act ever since it has been enacted in 2008 because, as we know, they have been monitoring all US citizenry. NSA hides the fact that they are monitoring on US citizens without the warrant as they find some connection between the person monitored and some illegal activity to justify their monitoring.
The attacker can sometimes never be identified and a problem without an identity breeds panic and hysteria. 1. According to Richard Clarke, a former White House staffer in charge of counter-terrorism and cyber-security, a cyber-attack can cause a catastrophic breakdown within 15 minutes only. 2. According to Mike McConnell, a former spy chief, the Cyberwar has already started and the world is losing it.
When Edward Snowden exposed the NSA spying on everyone there was not a known amount of terrorist attacks, which lead to the general statement of “Online surveillance has been effective and is an important tool in the fight against terrorism”(Francis, 2013). Years later, and once the NSA was a huge topic for the media the NSA bragged about how they stopped 54 terrorist attacks. Even this is misleading because of those 54 only 13 were in the USA. They also used the term “terrorist attacks” very loosely, because as John Oliver stated, “the bulk cell phone data collection has stopped one terror plot… a San Diego cabdriver who… provided $8500 to… al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia” (Snowden Interview, 2015). He then stated that this terrorist group had no connections or plans to the USA, so even if he had funded them, it wouldn’t have made a difference.
Department of Veterans Affairs database containing sensitive PHI of 26.5 million military veterans, including their social security numbers and health problems was stolen by an employee who took the data home without authorization. They usually assume the use of a single trusted authority (TA) in the system. This not only may create a load bottleneck, but also suffers from the key escrow problem since the TA can access all the encrypted files, opening the door for potential privacy exposure. In addition, it is not practical to delegate all attribute management tasks to one TA, including certifying all users’ attributes or roles and generating secret
Introduction The actions undertaken of Edward Snowden, the well-known former NSA fugitive who had leak tons of sensitive information from National Security Agency, NSA since 2013 had left a catastrophic impact towards the citizens across the globe as people had been aware that personal privacy conducted on today’s technology communication channels are not truly encrypted, which it leads to the actions where citizens are “losing confidence and trust upon the local and international government especially NSA”(Schneier, 2013) towards monitoring and intercepting the day-to-day communications that invades the citizen’s privacy space. As today’s world is entering a new state of global hyper-surveillance, personal privacy is a truly subjective area
They know what they are searching for and somehow know how to retrieves and circumvent intrusion detection systems. Different for external attackers, they can be hackers/crackers, saboteurs and thieves. If the network is compromised, intruders can attack or misuse the system. One common technique used by intruders to gain unauthorized access to the system is password theft. That is why, the users should be aware of information security which by not simply sharing their password with others and not leave their computer unprotected.
Guns are very dangerous weapons because of its danger it should not be legalized in public places. These weapons are the curse in our society, as they puts our world in danger because of its harmful uses. Many incidents took place in past years due to legalization of these weapons. These weapons put the lives of public in danger because of ease of access of these weapons. In past years when these weapons were legalized in public places then their misuse began to increase as students also started bringing such weapons in schools and this thing result in great violence even at schools and colleges.
Harris suggests that physical security is on most occasions an afterthought (97- 98), and often overlooked because most entities concentrate on counter measures that are technological in nature. Many organizations lose information through hacking by malware into their systems, and then the same information is used against an organization. Because of this scenario, proper implementation of physical security should be enacted so that would be attackers do not gain physical access to facilities and take information they want. What is physical security? This is a statutory system that was created to have a central control over financial transactions so as to avoid crisis in monetary systems.
In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government. Eventually, Nixon handed over the tapes as commanded by the US Supreme Court. Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice.
All of the patches in the system that are have not been re-patched which leaves the system with vulnerabilities. This risk leaves the business system open for hackers to break in and access all of the companies’ personal information The businesses should make sure that all of the patches are re-patched to reduce risk of business Physical Security 7. Most of the companies and schools use cipher lock to restrict the access to the certain area of companies or school. The individuals who are not authorized can do shoulder surfing to gain access to the restricted areas. To reduce the risk, companies or schools should use multi authentication.
You should rather install a reputable password manager to remember your passwords. 4. Don’t use the same password for all your online accounts. It is risky. Online criminals and hackers could potentially gain access to all your accounts if they figure out such password.

Due to Target 's negligence, millions of pieces of personally identifiable information were exfiltrated from its network. Reportedly, the beginning of the breach relied on the compromise of contractor credentials who worked on target HVAC systems. These HVAC systems apparently were connected to targets secure private network without restriction, which clearly violates basic defense in depth and principle of least privilege components of any rudimentary security architecture. For the layman, the question is: Why would anyone in
In this leaflets I will be talking about how the network can be attacked, One way the network can be attacked is DOS and what this stands for is Denial of service, this attacks the network by overflowing the network with useless traffic, the result of this overflowing cause the network to slow down significantly, and even can crash the network if it overflows too much. The damage that is can do to a business is huge they can lose a lot of money to fix the issue. The weird thing is that the hacker does not even benefit from this attack. The second way the network can be attacked is backdoor this attack is basically when you can access a computer program that side-steps security, the hackers use backdoors that they made or backdoors they found,
