Most parents and educators who are aware of Minecraft as a way to teach programming, critical thinking, design thinking and other skills, and that it is something many students love to use. I came across a presentation by Jarred White that he has delivered at security conferences on "Threat Modeling the Minecraft Way." He talks about this unusual application of Minecraft as a tool for threat modeling and the parallels between information security and Minecraft's game mechanics, for example, asset protection. There is a video online and at about 14 minutes he compares Minecraft's "threat agents" to real-world security attacks: creeper monsters are very similar to denial-of-service attacks; skeletons shooting arrows are similar to remote code execution; zombies are similar to viruses. That means that players can also design passive security measures, such as architectural feature that can block spiders from climbing up walls. Not only is this approach an interesting one for younger students to examine, and perhaps will be an introduction to the next generation of security workers. It can be also used at higher levels and ages to model the basics of cybersecurity, work in 3D spaces in a real-time simulator.
As maritime users increase their data consumption with the 21st century connect anywhere at any time culture, vessel network security is becoming ever more important as ships face a wider threat of cyber-attack and viruses.
Some helpful advice from the Better Business Bureau during Cyber Security Awareness Month, which happens to be October. The BBB is urging businesses and individuals to take precautions when backing up their computer systems.
You should plan for what to do when it happens, but work as hard as you can to prevent it. This has been the failing of a number of high-profile breaches. The example given was the Ashley Madison hack; in this case, the highly sensitive information was not stored safely, was inadequately protected, and too many people had access to the backend of the system.
When the hack happened, they were caught completely flat-footed and unable to respond quickly. Their practice of never deleting stale personal information—including that of users who had left the system—compounded the problem.
There are low-cost, low-impact measures that could have been taken that would have prevented the data from getting leaked.
