Teen sexters, cyber bullies may have to face victims

CHILDREN charged with sexting and cyber bullying offences may soon be referred to counselling programs where they will be forced to face their victims.

The educational program, which will today be announced by Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath, is being developed by the State Government as an option in restorative justice.

Restorative justice generally focuses on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with victims, allowing both parties to be heard.

It is expected to be implemented with the help of Bond University’s Psychology Clinic and will target sexting and cyber bullying by juveniles.

The program will allow courts or police to refer youth who have been involved in sexting to cyber bullying incidents to provisionally registered psychologists at Bond.

It is designed to bring offenders and victims together to help them understand the consequences of their offending behaviour.

“This program is about educating young people who engage in this behaviour that it can have

Ransomware Criminals Screwed Victims Out Of $25 Million In Less Than Two Years

Ransomware is one of the nastiest threats lurking on the Internet these days. There’s no sign that the situation will improve anytime soon, either. Not when ransomware is earning the criminals behind it millions of dollars each month.

Somewhere in excess of $2.5 million, according to a study put together by Google and Chainalysis with help from UC San Diego and NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering. Arriving at that figure involved a heck of a lot of work.

It’s not like cyber criminals are reporting the income, after all. What the research team had to do was to sift through Google’s massive cache of ransomware samples. That cache included a whopping 301,588 files at the time, and it represented 34 distinct families of ransomware.

They then turned their attention to the Blockchain to identify transactions from ransomware victims. One particularly interesting finding from the study: 94% of all payouts were processed by

THE CSI AWARENESS TEAM EDUCATES THE PUBLIC ON STALKING : Ignorance on part of victims- Greatest tool of …

17 July, 2017 – Humans are bound to interact with each other, for the smooth running of daily activities either commercial or non-productive.

There are several reasons why the significance of communication can never be overlooked, kudos to the great heroes that gave their all to enhancing available communication medium for the use of today’s generation.

As the day goes by, we are bound to have differences; some may be intentionally inclined while some occur due to our perspective concerning a particular issue or topic. Maturity and the mind to let go is crucial in living in peace and harmony.

In the process of fueling differences and misunderstanding, we tend to take revenge, discipline, harass or even bully the minor party.

This idea has taken different shapes with regards to civilization and availability of advanced technology. Wherefore cyber stalking comes in. Technology has given room for stalking without even the victim getting to know

AIB roasted over recent post, What about us? Ask Cyber crime victims

It is ironical how Indian police works, at least going by how the Cyber Crime Wing of Mumbai Police turned Tarzan, swinging into action and registering a defamation case against comedy group, All India Bakchod (AIB) on Friday. And all it took them was less than 24 hours. According to reports, the cops are calling it an “obscene” picture of Prime Minister Modi. The Mumbai Police took a suo motu cognisance of a tweet to its official handle objecting to the PM being ‘mocked’, and promptly booked stand-up comedian Tanmay Bhat of the AIB for “defamation and publishing transmitting obscene material in electronic form”. Mirror spoke to Amdavadis, who are either struggling to get the police to attend or act on their complaints. Hope we Amdavadis are also witness to such swift action.

Almost £650000 is secured to help victims

Domestic and sexual-abuse victims in Northumberland and other parts of the North East are set to benefit from a cash boost to local support services.

Almost £650,000 from the Home Office Violence Against Women and Girls transformation fund has been secured by Dame Vera Baird, Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner.

Projects and initiatives to be launched or built upon will include developing the Northumbria Domestic Abuse Practitioner Standard to provide training for local professionals, such as family support workers, who may not technically be domestic abuse specialists but who deal on a day-to-day basis with domestic abuse victims.

There will be a piloting of three witness advocate posts – intended to ensure that the needs of rape and sexual-abuse victims are fully met at every step in the criminal justice process – and a cyber stalking and harassment initiative to tackle more strongly the growing numbers of victims who are
