Will rope in experts to deal with cyber crime, says Bengaluru top cop

BENGALURU: New police chief T Suneel Kumar conceded on Monday that the force is ill-equipped to deal with increasing cybercrimes, but said the problem was not unique to the country’s IT capital.

“Cybercrime is increasing across the world and in the country too. The police department is establishing a separate cyber cell in each police station across the state to tackle these cases. There needs to be renewed focus on training,” Kumar said soon after taking charge.

He said: “Special attention will be given to cyber security and we”ll train our personnel. We’ll rope in experts from various fields to help us.”

Stating that he had no clue about being named the commissioner, Kumar said he’ll work closely with all additional commissioners in-charge of the city to maintain law and order.

Stalkers are turning to the internet in a digital age, leading cyber experts warn

Cyber stalkers have access to information at their fingertips in a digital age, security experts have said, as they urge people to share the burden and not struggle alone.

Tony Neate, chief executive of Get Safe Online, said it is easier with the advance of technology for stalkers to gather information about an individual and use it against them. But, he said, the key thing for victims to remember is that they aren’t alone, and to seek the help of family and friends as well as protecting themselves online.

“It’s never the victim that’s to blame – stalkers are vicious, nasty bullies,” he said. “We’ve got to make them realise they will be reported, that there’s no hiding place for these online trolls. We’ve got new technologies, and that makes it easier for the stalkers. They wouldn’t dream of doing it in real life – they wouldn’t do

What Makes a Hacker? Two Cyber Experts Explain

Companies are under constant assault from hackers but, for many people, the threat feels abstract and far away. That’s why Fortune produced the video above: It explains who the hackers are, and what they want.

Experts warn cyber crime is reaching epidemic levels

Cyber crime is rapidly rising and experts warn it is reaching epidemic levels as criminals use the internet as a tool for a multitude of fraudulent activities.

ActionFraud, the UK’s national fraud and cyber crime reporting centre, says around 70 per cent of fraud is cyber enabled – but says the number of reported cyber crimes are only the tip of the iceberg.

Cyber crime is any criminal act dealing with computers and networks through hacking. Cyber crime also includes traditional crimes conducted through the Internet.

Detective Chief Inspector Andrew Fyfe, head of crime at the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau which sits alongside Action Fraud within the City of London Police, the national policing lead for fraud and the cyber crime reporting centre, said: “We are the central reporting point for all fraud and cyber crime for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

“But what we see are reports to law enforcement

Computer experts dive into cyber-crime dangers that can befall businesses that are not proactive

THE question is not, “Will my information be accessed or stolen?” It’s, “When will it be accessed or stolen?”

In their presentation, “Easiest Catch: Don’t Be Another Fish in the Dark ‘Net,” Brian Hill and Mark Lanterman of Computer Forensic Services (CFS) provided realistic advice for cyber protection as they discussed recent high-profile cyber-crime events, including website breaches impacting retailers, banks, and government agencies.

Hill, VP of corporate investigative services at CFS, said that when it comes to the Internet of Things—the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data—it all starts with the user.

“Everything we do today is connected to the Internet,” he said. “While we gain convenience, we give up a lot of security. It’s trying to find that balance. Hey, you’ve got this product that allows you to do your job much easier, but now you have to look
