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

How Pakistani parents can protect their children from cyber bullying


Recently, I met the parents of a teenage boy who was a victim of cyber bullying. The parents were clueless. They had no idea what to do or how to handle the situation, thus they prohibited their son from using the Internet.

As a result, the son became withdrawn. He dreaded going to school, lost interest in social activities with friends and his academic performance dropped. Most of his time now was spent locked in a room. What was worse was that his Internet privileges — not of those who were bullying him — were taken away.

Bullying is not a new notion. It has always existed, yet research on it only began a few decades ago. The bully repeatedly and intentionally inflicts injury to the victim. This creates an imbalance of power, either physical or psychological. We, psychologists, had only just begun to grasp

Entrepreneurs warned to protect their businesses following spike in cyber crime

<!–

Small business are being warned to increase their cyber security as record numbers of scammers target Australian companies. The competition watchdog says small businesses with fewer than 20 staff are particularly vulnerable. Businesses are fast becoming victims of computer hacking, fake investment schemes, and buying and selling scams.
