How Splitting a Computer Into Multiple Realities Can Protect You From Hackers | CyberSecurity

How Splitting a Computer Into Multiple Realities Can Protect You From Hackers | CyberSecurity | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

 

Eight years ago, Polish hacker Joanna Rutkowska was experimenting with rootkits—tough-to-detect spyware that infects the deepest level of a computer’s operating system—when she came up with a devious notion: What if, instead of putting spyware inside a victim’s computer, you put the victim’s computer inside the spyware? At the time, a technology known…

 

So Rutkowska flipped the game, this time in favor of the defenders. Four years ago her Warsaw-based firm, Invisible Things Lab, started developing its own operating system known as Qubes. The free open source OS lets users set up a collection of virtual machines on their PC, with a simple central interface to manage each quarantined system. Careful users can keep their personal online activities isolated in one virtual machine, for instance, while they do their work in another, and their banking in a third. (Rutkowska typically runs about 15.) Open a malicious email attachment or click on an infected website and the malware can’t break out of that one contaminated container.

 

If it works as promised, even NSA-level exploits would be contained to a single compartment in Qubes’ architecture, one that could be evaporated and re-created at will. Recovering from even the nastiest hacker attack, in other words, could soon be as easy as waking from a bad dream.

What Americans should fear in cyberspace

What Americans should fear in cyberspace | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
A recent Pew poll found that Americans are more afraid of a cyber attack than they are of Iranian nuclear weapons, the rise of China or climate change.

 

In treating cyber security as a matter only for IT experts, computer users often neglect the most basic precautions that go a long way toward protecting both the Internet's users and the network itself. Indeed, one study found that as much as 94% of attacks could be stopped with basic "cyber hygiene." Perhaps the best example is that the most popular password in use today is "123456," with "password" No. 2.

 

The 19th century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson never could have conceived of the Internet. But it is what allowed me recently to look up a quote by him that is perhaps the best guide for our age of cyber insecurity:

 

===> "Knowledge is the antidote to fear." <===

 

GM: SO, learn about the basics of Cyber-Security!

Why (And How) Teachers and Education Should Start Learning and Teaching Cyber-Security | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

Why (And How) Teachers Should Start Learning and Teaching Cyber-Security . What should get be taught and learned more in the 21st Century while using ICT?

 

In the 21st Century, Education has a BIG responsibility to adapt to the very quick change in the world and to teach the students the knowledge they need and which are required to fulfill the market’s needs!

 

The market’s needs are ALSO to employ people with the basics of Cyber-Security knowledge as a modern company needs to protect its online reputation and a data loss could be lethal to them, their ruin eventually! SO, the new employees is the students coming out of school, College, High school, Universities; ALL of them need to have the basic knowledge of  Cyber-Security to be competitive in a working market where there is more and more unemployment worldwide…

 

===> A company would take advantage of a new employee who as already the necessary knowledge of Cyber-Security as the company doesn’t need to train him, which saves it a lot of money! <===

Just a reminder...
Chris Carter's curator insight, September 10, 2016 6:32 AM
Oh, yes indeed. And there is no better way I've found than to combine classroom cypher lessons with PBS's Nova Labs Cybersecurity Lab simulation (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/labs/lab/cyber/). It is an engrossing game that teaches both the how and, critically, the why of cybersecurity. Kids will learn to make robust passwords while they also learn to spot phising attacks, DDoS attacks, and many other cyber risks.

6 Tips for Becoming a Successful Blogger

Being a Blogger is easy, all your need to do is start a new Blog and start writing. Simple is int it? But have you ever thought what it takes to become a successful Blogger? How Bloggers make thousands of dollars every month? Well, answer is dedication, passion and most important they are serious about Blogging.

Lots of people try to earn money online but very few gets success. One of the best ways of earning online is blogging. Blogging is one of the best career opportunity these days. Blogging needs lots of hard work, research and long working hours. But one thing came into my mind can everyone get success in Blogging? If yes, why still many bloggers fail and give up their Blogging. Why many blogs get into parked page after a year and many people, don’t even bother renewing their Blog? The answer is the lack of passion and motivation.
WHAT IS TAKES TO BECOME A SUCCESS FUL BLOGGER?

1. You have writing skills:-

If you have great writing skills, you can become a successful blogger. Writing is the basic skill for becoming a blogger. Your blog readership will depend on how good your writing skills are. When I’m talking about writing, it doesn’t mean writing like an expert, but write like an individual. You are not writing for a book or a newspaper, as they are different. See the editorial page of a newspaper or a magazine, and that’s the exact kind of writing which I’m talking about.

Ten tip to improve your writing skills
2. You are disciplined:-

Although every work or profession needs to be disciplined but a blogger should be more disciplined. A blogger should work according to a time-table. It should divide into writing posts, commenting on other blogs and social networking promotion. If you want loyal readers, then you have to post regularly on your blog. If you do not blog regularly, then you will lose your readers.

Top productive tips for Bloggers
3. You are willing to learn:-

A blogger should always be ready to learn. I m still a learner. I read a lot of other blogs to gain more knowledge. Mostly bloggers share their experiences so that others can learn from them. So do spend some time to read other blogs so that you can increase your knowledge. I’m sure you are one of those who are willing to learn, and that’s why you are here. But even you achieve few goals and get initial success, don’t quit reading. Reading is an essential requirement which will help you to stay updated with the latest information.
4. You are good communicator:-

You can become a successful blogger if you are a good communicator. Some people think that a blogger’s work is over after writing the article. But they are wrong. The main work starts after the completion of the article. A blogger needs to promote that article on social networking sites and then he should also reply to all the comments he got on his article. You need a good communication skills for this. So improve your communication skills if you want to become a successful blogger.
5. You are willing to work hard:-

We have discussed earlier that hard work is the basis for becoming the successful blogger. A blogger has to work day and night to find new ideas and then he has to active on all the social networking sites to promote his blog. You don’t have to stress yourself with too much of work, rather use your time smartly and delegate time-consuming work to your virtual staff.
6. You are a creative person:-

It’s not necessary that every blogger should be a creative person, but it’s certainly an advantage for you. Creativity is one the most important part of writing. Creative articles always attract the attention of readers. It helps you to stand out from the rest.
Bonus: 7) You don’t make stupid mistakes:

Excuse me for my word, but I know as a newbie Blogger, we all make mistakes, and we learn from it. But the real deal is instead of making mistakes, learn from mistakes made by others which will help you to avoid those silly mistakes. Here are few articles, which will guide you few of the stupid mistakes a newBie blogger makes:

Top 21 Blogging mistake that can ruin your Blog
Five mistakes to avoid to become a successful Blogger
Eight things I wish I knew before I started Blogging

These are the qualities you should have if you want to become a blogger. As I said earlier anyone can become a blogger if he have these qualities. Please do add your thoughts in the comments section.
