Don't be fooled by the name: cyber security is about people, not technology

Don't be fooled by the name: cyber security is about people, not technology | social networks | Scoop.it
When you hear the phrase 'cyber security', what springs to mind?

 

Human error

In cyber security we often say 'there is no such thing as a malicious machine'. Trace a cyber attack or information breach back to its source and you won't find code, you'll find a person.

 

In fact, most information breaches are the result of human error and a lack of awareness, and the 'human problem' appears to be increasing.

Tumblr security lapse - iPhone and iPad users update your passwords now! | social networks | Scoop.it

Tumblr has released a "very important" update for their iPad and iPhone apps following what they describe as a "security lapse".

 

It appears that passwords were being sent over the internet unencrypted, making it easy for anyone with bad intentions and a little technical knowledge to harvest Tumblr users' login details.

It is always a good idea to update passwords: too many people out there with nothing better to do than mess with other peoples' lives!

This article contains information about the  security of the iphone and ipad users. This is very useful, because users wil be secured from any harm that could be done with their gadets. passwords were being sent over the internet unencrypted this could cause alot of problems because hackers would easily be able to access your password.
