Let’s talk about cyberstalking

As the recent incident of a woman being stalked and chased around the roads of Chandigarh by two men show, crimes against women are on the rise. Danger lurks in crowded city spaces, dingy bylanes, homes and desolate places. Even the cyber spaces are not safe for women. Many who venture into virtual world face cyberstalking and harassment. It’s common for women to receive unsolicited mails, photos with graphic sexual images or links to porn sites. They are even subjected to continuous messages on social media platforms and calls on phones.

Most of the time, out of fear, many would delete the initial messages ot call records. “Mistake number one,” says Dhanya Menon — India’s first woman cyber crime investigator. “Relatively, cyberstalking has a lot more evidence than physical stalking. But once the messages and call records are deleted, it becomes difficult to register a complaint and nab the culprit. The first rule

Rumors About Me in the Secular Community

____________________________________________________________________________

 

As I wrote earlier, rumors abound in the secular community, ranging from true to half-true to mostly false to completely false, and I have been the target of some myself.

 

The situation is so problematic that in 2013, the Secular Coalition for America published an Open Letter signed by a host of major leaders of national secular leaders about “improving the tone and substance of online discussions.” The letter read, in part: “We refuse to allow the deplorable conduct of a few to debase the reasonable, appropriate, and respectful conduct of the overwhelming majority of our community,” going on to say “we can resolve to avoid mischaracterizing the positions of others, relying on

Cyber crime a big threat, say conveyancers (but they haven’t done much about it)

Almost six in ten property law firms say that cyber crime poses a big threat when handling property transactions – but only a minority have done much about it.

A total of 58% ‘strongly agree’ that cyber security is a concern at their own organisation, but just 13% have spent much time and money making their communications safer.

The ‘Friday afternoon’ fraud in which people moving house are tricked into transferring their deposit to the bank accounts of fraudsters, has become one of the most significant of all cyber crimes.

One buyer, Howard Mollett, had £67,000 stolen after cyber criminals intercepted emails between him and his conveyancing solicitor.

Mollett claims that his solicitor had not warned him about the risk.

In January, the High Court ruled that law firm Mishcon de Reya should hand over more than £1m after a client was conned into ‘buying’ a property from a tenant pretending to be the owner.

What you need to know about the Petya and WannaCry cyber attacks

Financial losses, data breaches and reputational damage are just some of the ways a cyber-attack can hit an organisation hard.

The Petya and WannaCry cyber-attacks in May and June are two of the biggest in history and impacted the finances of companies throughout the globe. A recent report by the insurers Lloyd’s of London said a major cyber-attack has the potential to cost as much as a natural disaster. 

WannaCry, which affected numerous organisations, including the NHS, spread to 150 countries and is estimated to have cost the global economy £6bn. 

Petya caused problems with shipping and invoicing for Neurofen manufacturers Reckitt Benckiser, who are expecting to make losses of about £100m as a result of the attack. Some of the world’s largest organisations including Cadburys and Oreo cookies manufacturer Mondelez were also affected by Petya.

A cyber-attack can also lead to a fine for a data breach – a prospect that will become
