Cyber warfare fine but stick to the rules, Australia urges world

The Australian government has said there will be consequences for
states breaking international norms in cyberspace, and is
prepared to take “military measures” in response to malicious
cyber attacks.

Launching Australia’s first International Cyber Engagement
Strategy this morning, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said a
number of states were testing the limits of what is permissible.

“Cyberspace is not an ungoverned space. Just like in the physical
domains, states have rights but they also have obligations.
Existing international law applies to states’ conduct in
cyberspace, complemented by agreed norms of responsible state
behavior,” she said.

“Increasingly, states are testing the boundaries of what is and
isn’t acceptable in cyberspace. Australia will cooperate with its
international partners to deter, mitigate and attribute malicious
cyber activity by criminals, state actors and their proxies,
including those that seek to interfere in the internal democratic
processes of states,” she added.

Bishop will seek “high-level reaffirmations” from heads of stateRead more at: https://www.networksasia.net/article/cyber-warfare-fine-stick-rules-australia-urges-world.1507260954

What role does China play in the world’s fight against cyber crime?

A shelter mentality to cyber security

The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, on November 7th, 2016, formally passed China’s first comprehensive, all-inclusive security regulation for cyberspace.

The Booz Allen Cyber Power Index 2014 placed China in 13th place in terms of its 2015 global cyber power ranking, whereas the US ranked second. The disparity in the ranking is because of the different cyber philosophies at play — for the West, a keen focus on risk-based, consumer protective approaches through securing cyber security measures by establishing stiff regulations in place to punish breaches and facilitate standard setting.

China’s approach, however, of using the law as a cyber regulatory tool is attached to its using the internet to build up a domestic information economy and secure network infrastructure that directly benefits national economic development and political stability.

By applying tight controls over

The Changing World of Cyber Liability Insurance

In May, a piece of ransomware known as “WannaCry” paralyzed businesses, government entities and Great Britain’s National Health Service in one of the largest global cyberattacks to date.

The following month, it was “Petya,” another massive cyberattack that crisscrossed the globe, bringing Russian oil companies, Ukrainian banks and a mass of multi-national corporations to their collective knees.

Australians are world’s biggest cyberattack ransom payers: Malwarebytes survey

Michael Bailey

by

Michael Bailey

Australian small-to-medium enterprises are nearly twice as likely to pay a ransom demanded by cyber criminals as are their counterparts offshore, even though only 40 per cent of those who didn’t pay actually lost any files.

The level of corporate alarm at so-called “ransomware” has increased in the wake of 2017’s “WannaCry” and “Petya” attacks, where thousands of businesses and government organisations worldwide had their files locked up (or “encrypted”) pending payment

Five of the worst cases of cyber crime the world has ever seen – from data theft of one BILLION Yahoo users to …

CYBER crime can affect anyone at any time.

Our sharing of personal information and reliance on online services make us all potential targets of internet crime.

Cyber crime is on the rise and can affect billions worldwide

Cyber crime is on the rise and can affect billions worldwide

And while we hope that the institutions we trust our information with have the strongest measures in place protect it, unfortunately that isn’t always possible.

Midway through 2017, the UK fell victim to one of the most crippling cyber attacks it had ever experienced.

The WannaCry virus infiltrated the NHS computer system and left it completely disabled for most of the week.

Forcing hospitals and medical practitioners to operate entirely offline, it exposed a major hole in the cyber security of the UK’s healthcare system.

But this was just one of a number of incidences that have affected

Cyber world

Amna Ejaz Rafi
IN 1969, ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network) was created by connecting few computers. In 1972, the codes for exchanging data were created and an internet capable of exchanging packets of digital information was formed. The World Wide Web began in 1989. Later, developments led to the creation of research engine Google and the ICANN-Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers in 1998. The open source encyclopedia, Wikipedia began in 2001. These digital advancements had an impact on research. Students through technological exchange can access the research of other countries. In 1992, there were only a million internet users; within fifteen years that had grown to a billion. In 1993, there were about 50 websites in the world; by the end of the decade, that number had surpassed 5 million, and in 2010, China alone had nearly 400
