Varun Kapoor *

As cyber crime explodes globally, new and challenging types of crime terms and names are emerging almost daily in public space. If being safe and secure in the virtual space was not a problem enough, citizens today have to deal with this increasingly vexatious terminology and trying to decipher.

First of all they have to figure out what all this cyber-computer related jargon really means and then they have to undertake the onerous task of safeguarding themselves from its evil tentacles. This

sometimes proves to be an almost impossible task and before the poor citizens can get an idea what the crime connected to the name is, they have already become victims of it.

Another challenging feature is that each day a new cyber crime with a new techno-challenging-logic-defying name hits the society. How many and how often will

Battling and controlling all types of crime – be it traditional crime or actual crime, in best of times is a challenging task. Elimination of crime in society of any hue and color is a utopian situation, one which all security agencies and communities aspire to achieve. But in reality this state is “rarely” if ever achievable.

The situation in relation to cyber crime is no different. Add to this that this a technology based crime and the nitty-gritty of this technology is difficult for most citizens to understand, it becomes clear that tackling cyber crime is an even greater challenge than real world crime.

ORONO, Maine (WABI) – Spreading kindness across the UMaine Campus, it’s been the goal of one group for a few years now.

From US Air Force to cybersecurity – there’s no challenge she wouldn’t take – Luxemburger Wort

Raised on a ship on the Mediterranean sea, the CEO of Stratus Digital Systems comes from a family of itinerants and right from the outset states that her personality is one that embraces change and continues to push boundaries.

She talks about how dreams come true, but not in the exact way or at the exact time one would wish. “You can be anything you want to be, but you cannot get there the way you plan,”she jokes. 

Greta Geankoplis is a former US Air Force captain and a former Fighter Aircraft Maintenance officer. Before entering the world of blockchain technology and attending conferences about cybersecurity as the CEO of a promising start-up, she was afraid of working with software.

Forget Blue Whale Challenge, cyber bullying is more common danger for your kid

Tanya grew up in a Mumbai suburb, like any normal teenager. Unknown to her, a classmate from a previous school had started collecting information and pictures of her since they were 12. The information was then used to make a fake Facebook page, and was shown as if Tanya had posted them herself. Tanya had read about cyber bullying, but had never expected herself to be a victim. She found out about the fake page only through her friends.

Even though the bullying seemed benign in the beginning, soon schoolmates started sending her crude messages and she became isolated from her friends circle. She withdrew to herself, rarely going out, and became depressed. The bullying then got so bad that she had to go for counseling and change schools to start afresh.
