Gurgaon: Women SHOs hone their skills in tackling cyber crime

During the lunch break in one-day training on cybercrime, President medal awardee inspector Luxmi Devi from Bhiwani approached head of the Digital investigation training and analysis centre (DITAC) and asked for help.

“Kindly brief us on collection of evidence and collating it in a proper manner in cyber crime cases,” she requested Jitender Gahlawat, deputy superintendent of police who is heading the DITAC.

Gahlawat said there would be a separate session on the topic and all queries of the participants would be cleared in the training module.

The one-day training — ‘Technical aspects in investigation of crime against children and women’ — was the first of its kind for station house officers of women’s police station across the state. A total of 22 SHOs participated in the training and they were enthusiastic about learning new facts in handling cybercrime.

Sextortion: How a New Breed of Predator Exploits Victims Through Their Own Computers

Heather knew there were adults on the Internet who preyed on kids, and she regularly warned her own four children about the dangers of talking to strangers online. Yet the 37-year-old married mom from Phoenix never thought she would ever fall victim to a growing Internet crime known as sextortion.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies sextortion as a form of online blackmail in which explicit images are used to extort additional photos, sexual favors, and sometimes money from victims. It can involve hacking into a victim’s computer or “catfishing” — where predators lure unsuspecting victims into online relationships and coerce them into sharing nude photos or videos. A 2016 report from the Brookings Institute found that sextortion is on

These Ads Confront Swedish Parents With the Cyber Bullying Their Kids Experience

Swedish anti-bullying charity Make a Change is confronting parents with the kinds of shocking words their children are faced with via cyber bullying in a print and outdoor campaign.

The ads, by DDB Stockholm, use smartphone icons to spell out shocking phrases like “ugly slut” and “kill your self,” all messages that some teens have to deal with in their digital life. According to Make a Change, 20% of the children experiencing cyber bullying are considering taking their own lives and every third girl in Sweden has been subject to sexual harassment online.

The campaign features online, print and DOOH — presumably, particularly targeting those parents who aren’t necessarily digitally savvy themselves. Dennis Phang, Art Director at DDB Stockholm, says in a statement: “The purpose of the campaign is to increase knowledge of cyberbullying, give parents the tools they need to communicate with their children about the web as well as to

Hackers have self-managed super funds in their sights

International cyber criminals have Australian nest eggs in their sights, with at least $600 billion in cash reserves held by self-managed super funds, financial planning and stockbroking-related accounts particularly at risk, experts have warned.

Alex Tilley, researcher with cybercrime fighter SecureWorks, told The New Daily that Australian investment accounts “are becoming more of a target for international criminals because the banking sector has been very successful at protecting itself”.

Because the banks have become difficult to crack, cyber criminals have turned their attention to piles of cash outside the banking system and  “while the numbers [of successful cyber raids] are hard to quantify, we know they are trying. If they keep coming back it probably means they are being successful sometimes”.

There are four areas particularly at risk from cyber-targeting because they have large amounts of cash on deposit.

The 1.08 million Australians who have $647 billion in SMSFs have 19 per cent of

Teenage hackers sent to rehab to put their skills to good use in fight …

“Cyber crime has become easier to commit with the proliferation of easy-to-access tools, tutorials and online forums to share idea,” said Richard Jones, Prevent manager at the NCA.

“Even the most basic forms of cyber crime can have huge impacts and the NCA and police will arrest and prosecute offenders, which can be devastating to their future.

“That means there is great value in reaching young people before they become involved in cyber crime, and even those already on the fringes of criminality – when their skills can still be a force for good.”

The idea for the scheme came from research that looked at the abilities of illegal hackers in comparison with those who worked in cyber security. It found that those on the right side of the law were very similar to the other group, but at some point a parent, guardian or teacher had intervened to put them on
