BT signs up Symantec to tackle SME cyber threats

BT has teamed up with Symantec to expand its security offering with a new solution for SMEs.

Called BT Device Protection, the service offers firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware and ransomware protection for smartphones and PCs.

It features a range of Symantec capabilities including machine learning and real-time behaviour monitoring, alongside memory exploit mitigation, which protects against vulnerabilities in applications, and file reputation analysis, which determines the level of risk of a file.

The cloud-based service is available through the BT Business app store for £4.99 per month and is bundled free with BT’s premium broadband service.

College students often miss signs of abusive relationships

This article was written for our sponsor, eNOughNC.

A comprehensive poll of college students regarding dating abuse on campus found around 22 percent of college women reported being physically abused in a dating relationship.

This study was performed in 2011 by Knowledge Networks on behalf of women’s fashion company Liz Claiborne, Inc.

The statistics on physical abuse on campus only tell portion of the story, though.

Almost half — 43 percent — of college women reported experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors in general. Of this 43 percent, around half of the abuse involved physical contact, while much of the rest was emotional, verbal, and technological abuse.

Difficulty identifying dating abuse on campus

On campuses, 57 percent of students admit difficulty in identifying abusive dating behaviors. The more subtle nature of emotional abuse can make this identification even more difficult.

Trump signs Cyber Crime Fighting Act to train up local and state law enforcement

President Trump signed the Strengthening State and Local Cyber Crime Fighting Act of 2017 on Thursday.

With a flourish of President Donald Trump’s pen Thursday, state and local law enforcement got the tools and training needed to fight cybercrime as the Strengthening State and Local Cyber Crime Fighting Act of 2017 became law.

Introduced by Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, the legislation authorizes the highly regarded National Computer Forensics Institute (NCFI) in Hoover, Ala., which has trained nearly 7,000 local officials from 50 states and three U.S. territories.

Shortly after Ratcliffe introduced his bill in March, Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, introduced a similar bill in the Senate to expand the NCFI its charter to include training local law enforcement in cybersecurity practices.

 “I’d like to thank President Trump for his strong support of my bill to ensure our state and local law enforcement officials are properly equipped to address

Kaspersky Lab signs threat intelligence sharing agreement with INTERPOL

INTERPOL

In a fight against cyber crime, Kaspersky Lab signed a threat intelligence sharing agreement with INTERPOL.

Kaspersky’s experts have regularly cooperated with INTERPOL to share fresh cyber threat discoveries with police in its member countries.

The antivirus and internet security software company participated in a groundbreaking INTERPOL-led cybercrime operation that identified nearly 9,000 botnet command and control (C2) servers and hundreds of compromised websites, including government portals, across the ASEAN region.

Kaspersky Lab has also previously assisted in a global operation coordinated by the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore to disrupt the Simda criminal botnet – a network of over 770,000 infected PCs around the world.

INTERPOL has helped Kaspersky Lab experts to test and improve a free open-source tool that enables quicker and easier cyber threat research.

Anton Shingarev, vice-president for public affairs of Kaspersky Lab, said: “Sharing intelligence is vital in tackling today’s ever-growing threat landscape
