Cyber security – the best weapon remains good information security hygiene

Cyber security – the best weapon remains good information security hygiene | Computer Ethics and Information Security | Scoop.it
By understanding the threats they face, organisations can mobilise IT systems and staff to defeat all but the most expert and determined adversary

 

Cyber security is about humans, not just IT

Computers do not make mistakes by themselves, so employees remain your biggest potential vulnerability. But they are also your strongest defence, if briefed properly.

The Scrap Value of a Hacked PC, Revisited — Krebs on Security

The Scrap Value of a Hacked PC, Revisited — Krebs on Security | Computer Ethics and Information Security | Scoop.it
Brian Krebs at "Krebs on Security" ..."put together a chart listing the various ways that miscreants can monetize hacked PCs. The project was designed to explain simply and visually to the sort of computer user who can’t begin to fathom why miscreants would want to hack into his PC. “I don’t bank online, I don’t store sensitive information on my machine! I only use it to check email. What could hackers possibly want with this hunk of junk?,” are all common refrains from this type of user.I recently updated the graphic (below) to include some of the increasingly prevalent malicious uses for hacked PCs, including hostage attacks — such as ransomware — and reputation hijacking on social networking forums.
