An Introduction to Cyber Intelligence - The State of Security

An Introduction to Cyber Intelligence - The State of Security | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
This is the beginning of a short blog series on the topic of cyber intelligence, its sub-disciplines, and its uses. As an Adjunct Lecturer at Utica College, I teach graduate students in the M.S.

 

The first is the definition of intelligence:

The product resulting from the collection, processing, integration, evaluation, analysis, and interpretation of available information concerning foreign nations, hostile or potentially hostile forces or elements, or areas of actual or potential operations.The activities that result in the product.The organizations engaged in such activities.

Webmasters help for hacked sites – Google | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Unfortunately, it’s likely your site was hacked.Every day, cybercriminals compromise thousands of websites. Hacks are often invisible to users, yet remain harmful to anyone viewing the page — including the site owner. For example, unbeknownst to the site owner, the hacker may have infected their site with harmful code which in turn can record keystrokes on visitors’ computers, stealing login credentials for online banking or financial transactions. 

In this first step, we explain how and why hacks happen, and review options for recovery.

As with e-Learning, m-Learning and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) every one is visiting websites, so this should be of interest to anyone! Especially Education, Teachers, Educators, Instructors, Professors SHOULD be aware of this and accept the fact that Learning and Teaching basics of Cyber-Security in 21st Century is a MUST!

Observations on the Evolution of Cyber Tactics in 2013

Observations on the Evolution of Cyber Tactics in 2013 | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Tom Kellermann discusses the changes we can expect to see in 2013

 

The world has reached a point of inflection in cybercrime. As cyberspace abounds with cyber privateers, and many nations of the world become havens for these modern-day pirates, it appears that 2013 is the year of hacking for criminal gain.

 

In our recently released predictions for 2013, our CTO Raimund Genes illustrated his strategic vision per the future of cybercrime. The predictions highlight improvements in threats we will encounter in 2013, more specifically on the attack vectors used by cybercriminals. Raimund predicts that attackers will shift their strategy from developing sophisticated malware to focusing on the means to infiltrate networks and evade detection.

Melf's curator insight, April 18, 2014 9:13 AM

Here you see some facts about how companies lack in security.

Some points like file sharing and getting worms are a really big issue. If there is no protection against that the company may be in danger. If all people have about 3 devices and they arent protected, you cant stop this.

Melf's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:02 AM

I think that people should pay more attention to this because there are more victims every day. Not only persons but also companies could get trouble with not paying attention to your data.

Melf's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:07 AM

Im very afraid of losing data myself. I saw a commercial once that someone took over the identity of another person. I hope that people pay more attention and try to be more safe in the future.
