Police Scotland shouldn’t deal with trivial incidents, cyber crime or steward public events says Kenny MacAskill

Police should no longer respond to some minor crimes or steward major public events, former SNP justice secretary Kenny MacAskill has said.

The veteran politician, in government from 2007 to 2014, said officers on the national force he helped set up are now “run ragged” dealing with minor matters others could take care of.

MacAskill’s suggestions were blanked by the Scottish Government last night and opposition parties said he should have fixed problems when he was in charge.

The former MSP also risked a backlash from NHS workers when he said it’s time for the health service to “step up to the plate” on mental health issues which “drain” police resources.

BlackBerry recommendations for connected car security; cyber-crime target

BlackBerry recommendations for connected car security; cyber-crime target

As our cars become more connected and our society moves closer to wide spread autonomous driving, researchers and companies alike are calling for national standards to help secure connected vehicles.

BlackBerry recently released a whitepaper highlighting what it calls a Seven-Pillar Recommendation or list of seven recommendations to help reduce vulnerabilities in vehicles thereby lessening the chances of a threat actor exploiting them for mischievous purposes.  

The seven recommendations include securing the supply chain, using trusted components, isolating critical systems, the use of in-field health checks, rapid incident response networks, lifecycle management systems, and building safety and security into the culture. BlackBerry argued these principles could also be adopted by other IoT devices as well to ensure safer products in other industries.

The recommendations were also offered as guidelines for legislators to adopt a minimum set of requirements similar to the NHTSA (National Highway and Traffic

It’s the golden age of cyber crime — here’s how the US must prepare for it

Sad to say, but this is a good time to be in the business of cyber crime.

We have put almost everything out there in cyberspace — personal data, intellectual property, even access to the controls of critical infrastructure. And we have been woefully deficient in defending it.

Commercial and government networks share a problem: bad cyber hygiene. We put off patching applications and operating systems even when their authors tell us there is a vulnerability. We click on malware-infested emails because they look harmless. And we keep connecting cars, cameras, TVs and toasters to the Internet, every one of them giving attackers another way to infiltrate.

The government in particular, recognizing cyber crime as a direct threat to our nation, wants new ways to protect its networks and a holistic approach to cybersecurity. There are no easy answers in cybersecurity, but there are some very clear ways to get better at it.
