Executive Insights: 2017 Threat Trends – Looking at Our Threat Reports

The expanding attack surface

2017 was the year of digital transformation. Traditional network environments were upended by the rapid adoption of things like cloud infrastructure and cloud-based applications and services, the virtualization of data centers, the integration of billions of new, connected IoT devices, and the continued expansion of mobility, BYOD, and related applications.

Because this change has happened so rapidly, many organizations have had to scramble to find ways to extend security to new network ecosystems, devices, and applications. For example, organizations today use an average of about 200 different applications, ranging from productivity tools used internally, to consumer-facing applications that provide quick access to data and enable tap-of-the-screen transactions. These applications span from remote devices to cloud services, and mine deep into the data center for real-time information. The number of high-profile data breaches and the resulting theft of hundreds of millions of data

Here’s more from The Verge:

She claims the security cameras in the area where she worked were turned off because it was the same place that Faraday Future tested the prototypes of its car, the

SAFFORD, AZ – Parents in Safford are outraged after being notified of escalating reports of cyberbullying at Safford Unified School District.

Cyber-bully attacks increase, watchdog reports

There is practically no difference between cyber-bullying among children and adults.

Thirty-five percent of Israeli children and 32% of Israeli adults have experienced cyber-bullying in the past two years.

The annual survey conducted by the Sarid Institute measuring the trends of cyber-bullying and exposure to online pornography was released by the Israel Internet Association on Tuesday.

According to Orna Heilinger, head of the association’s Internet Safety Center, “Grownups are also suffering from cyber-bullying, exactly like children.”

The survey defined cyber-bullying as: harassment, shaming, or using online applications such as WhatsApp groups which can be used to share embarrassing and/or pornographic photographs or videos.

Heilinger has been working at the association for the past seven years and has seen that the number of cyber-bullying cases has remained the same in all areas for the past three years.

“When I started [at the association] in 2010, the percentage of reported experiences of cyber-bullying was only 18%; the following

How the National Crime Records Bureau under-reports crime against women

The Chandigarh stalking case has returned the focus on crime against women. For assessing the crime situation in India, most people rely on the database maintained by the National Crime Records Bureau. But is this database relevant when assessing crime against woman?

Human right activists, researchers, lawyers and even senior police officials express concern over the methodology used by the bureau.

For one, it is a fact that, for a wide range of reasons, many women do not even get to a police station to record the crime against them. Reporting is the first step in recording crime. Once the complainant reports the crime, the police are required to file a First Information Report on the basis of her statement. The FIR is then analysed and details entered into police’s crime database. This data is periodically submitted to the National Crime Records Bureau.
