With the recent trend in internet of things (IoT) many homeowners and industries integrate, appliances and sensors to by managed by web and cloud. Some of these systems are not highly secure and increases the risk of being hacked. Again, the user information may not be the target, it could be other assets that are target of the crime. 3) Digital media breach results in loss of revenue, by criminal sharing information illegally.
Cyber security is gaining tremendous attention nowadays due to the increasing use of internet, computers by the media and various public and private institutions. They recognize the terrible impacts with the cyber attacks. At present, cyber attacks has resulted in computer based criminal activities which are generating worldwide threat, destruction and disruption. There is no cross border for cyber activities and the increase in the use of internet by the world wide users and lack of international cyber legal regime resulting the increase of the international cyber attacks. Cyber security involves preventative methods which are used to protect information from being stolen or attacked.
It also helps in performing forensic analysis on networks and computer systems and make recommendations for remediation. Implementation involves application, maintaining and analyzing results from intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention system, network mapping software and other tools that can be used to protect, detect and correct information security-related vulnerabilities and laws. Implementation can also be said to provide audit data to appropriate law enforcement or other investigation agencies to include corporate security elements. The implementation also involves coordinate dissemination of forensic analysis findings to appropriate
Terrorists have become increasingly sophisticated at exploiting communications technologies for anonymous communication related to the planning of terrorist acts. A simple online e-mail account may be used by terrorists for electronic, or virtual, “dead dropping” of communications. This refers to the creation of a draft message, which remains unsent, and therefore leaves minimal electronic traces, but which may be accessed from any Internet terminal worldwide by multiple individuals with the relevant password III Organizations and individuals often publish extensive amounts of information
Epsilon also launched restrictions on access through its IP certification requirements that would allow only white-listed IP addresses access to Epsilon 's email platform. An anti-phishing solution that could find a way to differentiate between legitimate and fraudulent messages and monitor frauds across email domains. The IT protection feature combines intelligence from Verizon 's global-IP network, Internet traffic data, and breach statistics data. The service will run on a custom cloud.
Confidential information can include an individual 's personal information, classified materials with national security implications and commercial intellectual property (Kim & Solomon, 2016). In the US, there are laws that protect confidential information and IT systems. These legislations require businesses and organizations to have security control mechanisms that protect the confidentiality of sensitive information. Safeguarding data confidentiality is not always easy as technological advances also provide means of easily accessing information from remote locations and making it accessible to many people (Dhillon & Backhouse, 2000). This is despite the numerous technologies that have been designed to protect sensitive data.
2.2 Password Reuse The password reuse is unsecured as this might caused other people that same password with you accidentally access to your account and it might caused your personal information being stolen by someone else. 2.3 Security Issues The security issues are to notice that is it enough to secure your personal information by only using username and password to access into your account as it might causes hackers easily retrieve your id and password by hack into the system as only got 1 barrier that protect your information.
The loss of PII not only affects individuals but also companies responsible for the safekeeping of PII. To understand how one can protect their personally identifiable information, one must first understand the threats and the consequences that come from that data being compromised. The main threat one’s personally identifiable information is by hackers . Hackers utilize a number of vulnerabilities to gain access to a computer system for the sole purpose of gaining information. The system is not limited to a person’s own personal computer, but also includes the systems that businesses use to store customer information.
This might be a wide range of information from personnel files and intellectual property to market analytics and details intended to top secret. However, some of this information not planned to leave the system. The unauthorized admission of the data will cause to several problems for
These difficulties, combined with the efforts necessary to recover user data, can take a lot of time. 2. DEFINITION Federal Trade Commission Staff Report in USA defines spyware as: "Software that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without their knowledge and that may send such information to another entity without the consumer's consent, or that asserts control over a computer without the consumer's knowledge". 3.
A virus can be in form of an email from an known source, clicking on such emails or attachment can lead a breach of data security. Thus, a computer should be protected by anti-virus and anti spyware software to reduce vulnerability. Company computers should be checked for out of date anti- virus and anti spyware software as they may fail to detect viruses.
In regard to cybersecurity, evaluating the trade-off of being a valid tool in counterterrorism is to; establish a framework both state and local that will meet the government responsibilities. However, one of the key counterterrorism tools used was done under the USA PATRIOT ACT. The Patriot Act allows investigators to use tools that they had readily available to investigate organized crime and drug dealers. This outlines the national and domestic intelligence framework. The counterterrorism tools are used to gravity the terrorist networks by social media; mobile money transfers, Apple-FBI and they use online criminal activities such as unlawful access to a computer system such as hacking.
Internal: Are accidents/attacks happening in the organisation. There are many internal threats when you are using computer system as mostly people don’t know how to use it safely or they may misuse it such as for example, an employee may copy information from a database table into an email for troubleshooting resolutions and accidentally include external email addresses in the recipient list. Also, internal threat is harmful to the computers or operating system via using main logging. If you download files from infected emails or sites then the network will be infected; there will be viruses in the computer. Use of scanners: is when scanners are used to scan addresses to identify users IP address.
