India joins cyber security mission

Cyber security in India has been in a muddle for a decade. Recently, the Ministry of Electronics and Technology launched a programme called, “Cyber Swachhta Kendra,” to curb cyber crimes.

Nobody can forget the problems caused by Wannacry and its post version 2.0. Some months back,  this ransomware infected millions of personal computers across the world using the SMB v1 fl aw. It has infected computers run by police departments and temple endowment boards in south India.

However, systems that ran Linux were safe. This does not mean that Linux platform is completely safe. Though it has fl aws, the levels of severity are   much lower than other operating systems.

The timely action of NMR (No More Ransomware) project, launched by Europol in association with National Cyber Crime Unit of Netherlands’ police and a few cyber security agencies, including Kaspersky and McAfee, was fruitful.

Preventing cyber crime is central to GCHQ’s mission, says chief

The head of the UK’s spy agency GCHQ has said that protecting Britain from cyber crime must be as central to its mission as defending the country from terrorism.

Jeremy Fleming spelt out his vision for the future direction of the agency in the opinion pages of the Sunday Telegraph [8 October] after the National Cyber Security Centre, which was set up a year ago within GCHQ, issued its first report last week [3 October].

The NCSC is the centrepiece of a five-year National Security Strategy that was launched by the British government in 2016, under which it pledged to invest £1.9 billion in cyber security by 2020.

“In my view, the Government was right to house the NCSC in GCHQ,” Fleming said in the article. “Over the past year, it has responded to nearly 600 significant incidents requiring a national, coordinated response.”

From cyber-bullying victim to Miss Kentucky, EKU senior’s mission is personal

Stephanie Ramos

Stephanie Ramos

RICHMOND, Ky. – Stephanie Ramos became a victim of extreme cyber-bullying when she was 17. Her self-esteem was shattered, and she dreaded going to school each day. In a final attempt to renew her happiness and confidence, Ramos entered her first pageant. She would later declare the decision “saved my life.” Today, the Eastern Kentucky University senior proudly stands as Miss Kentucky United States.

Ramos was crowned in Bowling Green on Feb. 26, which also coincided with her 24th birthday. She will go on to compete for Miss United States on July 8 in Orlando, Fla.

Surprisingly, Miss Kentucky had little to no interest in pageants before her senior year of high school, when the cyber-bullying peaked.

“It got to the point where I didn’t want to leave my house. I had no self-confidence.”

One afternoon, Ramos received a letter stating that she had
