Guest opinion: Getting serious about cyberstalking

The internet and social media has done everything from giving a voice to the oppressed and inspiring democratic change in totalitarian states, to connecting old friends.

However, these mediums can be used — and abused — by those pursuing more nefarious purposes. In the 21st century, these platforms have digitized crimes from robbery to stalking, forcing lawmakers and law enforcement to open a new front against criminals untethered to geographic locations and hidden behind virtual screens.

Such is true of cyber-stalking — including cases right here in our community.

For the Zezzo family, it was their teenaged daughter who, at the age of just 13, was cyber-stalked by a friend’s father through social media. Despite the stalking being sexual in nature, the then-51-year-old stalker pleaded guilty only to a misdemeanor stalking charge and was sentenced to probation and counseling.

Three years later, in 2016, the same

Guest view: After Equifax breach, be vigilant

Equifax recently announced a data breach that exposed names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, addresses and even driver’s license numbers for 143 million Americans. The same security breach led to over 209,000 credit card numbers being stolen.

Equifax, along with TransUnion and Experian, are our three main U.S. credit reporting agencies. They are in the business of collecting the data that is computed into our credit score. This data includes open and closed credit cards, balances, payment data, mortgages, utilities and much more.

Over a month ago, some cyber-criminal group managed to hack into the Equifax corporate database and steal this information. We may eventually find out who the culprits were, but according to several cyber experts, the data stolen may be sold through dark channels and be worth over $30 million. The most valuable information is complete names/addresses/dates of birth/Social Security numbers with a credit card. And over 200,000 of

Guest post: Beware of cyber crime!

As statistics show, the cyber security threat landscape has continued to grow and become ever more complex, businesses of all types should make 2017 the year when they leave behind the “it won’t happen to us” school of thought and resolve to take action to protect themselves against the cybercriminal.

High profile breaches and hacking attacks such as those suffered by TalkTalk, Mumsnet and Tesco Bank make the headlines, however, too many small businesses in the south west have fallen victim to various cyber threats – losing data, losing money and suffering disruption.

Why will my business be a target?

Forget the Hollywood image of the 15-year old hacker sitting in his bedroom writing malicious code for kicks. Cyber crime pays and cyber criminals are a clever, market aware and fast growing community.

It takes great effort and skill to carry out attacks on the ‘big names’ and yes, a successful attack can bring
