6 lessons ‘Ghost in the Shell’ can teach you about cybersecurity

The original Ghost in the Shell (GitS) movie was practically compulsory material in the hacker subculture of the late 90s, early 2000s. The original touched on themes that all geeks can appreciate, including robotics, sentient AI, human augmentation, active (“thermal-optic”) camouflage, transferring human consciousness to a machine, and more. The main protagonist was a hacker called the Puppet Master, and the idea of hacking technically augmented humans was ahead its time (the Internet of Things wasn’t even a “thing” then). This is probably why GitS imagery and themes have been iconic in hacker culture (like this GitS-ish t-shirt).

As a fan of the complete Ghost in the Shell franchise (manga, TV shows, sequels), I was excited for

Australia says it will teach world’s first cyber crime university course

Australia said on Friday it will offer the world’s first university course to train intelligence analysts to fight cyber crime, prompted by innovative methods of money transfer among organised crime and militant groups.

The measure expands on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s attempts to ratchet up policing of money transfers amid concerns that organised crime and militant groups are using technology such as the “dark web” and cryptocurrencies to make their payments hard to trace.

What Real-Life Kidnappings Can Teach Us About Dealing With Digital Ones

Kidnappings for ransom have been dramatized on television and in the movies and detailed on the news. Heck, even Julius Caesar was once kidnapped by pirates, held for ransom and even lived to document his tale for the history books.

While the methods are literally as old as ancient history, cyber security experts are now looking to the kidnapping and ransom industry to better understand how to deal with the growing threat of ransomware, which is now a billion dollar a year industry.

“Ransomware is less about technological sophistication and more about exploitation of the human element,” a report from the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology said. “Simply, it is a digital spin on a centuries-old criminal tactic.”
