Push for Australians' web browsing histories to be stored

Push for Australians' web browsing histories to be stored | The Future Of Cyber Security. | Scoop.it
Northern Territory Police and Victoria Police push for web-browsing histories to be stored as ASIO uses Snowden leaks for metadata collection.
Erick Bosire's insight:

A shift away from traditional telephony services to Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and others meant that data may be included in browser histories and is as important to capture as telephone records.

Everyday cybercrime -- and what you can do about it

Everyday cybercrime -- and what you can do about it | The Future Of Cyber Security. | Scoop.it
How do you pick up a malicious online virus, the kind of malware that snoops on your data and taps your bank account? Often, it's through simple things you do each day without thinking twice. James Lyne reminds us that it's not only the NSA that's watching us, but ever-more-sophisticated cybercriminals, who exploit both weak code and trusting human nature.
Erick Bosire's insight:

As we play with new devices and setting we need to ask ourselves, what does this mean to my privacy and security. We need to peel back and see how technology works under the covers. We need policies to govern the internet since its borderless. Most laws are national and countries fail to agree on policies. The Internet is a great resource therefore education and simple procedures e.g updating security softwares will give us an upper-hand in the fight against cyber security.

Security in the age of BYOD and the Internet of Things | Take on the Future - Enterprise 20/20 blog

Security in the age of BYOD and the Internet of Things | Take on the Future - Enterprise 20/20 blog | The Future Of Cyber Security. | Scoop.it
“The Internet of Things is going to allow us to be more connected and very productive,” says Art Gilliland, senior vice president, Software Enterprise Security Products, HP, in the Security 20/20 ebook chapter. “But it also creates more areas for adversaries to compromise the environment. Any device can be the attack point or the thing that is attacking.”This is also the conclusion of a report written by the European Cybercrime Centre that details how cybercrime of the future will be much like the cybercrime of today, with one key difference: “The increasing incorporation of augmented and virtual reality technologies into daily life has the potential to result in cybercrimes which entail psychological harm to individuals.”This brave new world will affect our IT environments, our consumer lifestyles and the security industry at large. So, what can IT experts do now?
Erick Bosire's insight:

The Internet was something in beta that escaped from the lab. It was never supposed to be used for banking and government secrets.  Better technologies have to be built to authenticate and understand who users are, what users should have access to or not and what data matters or doesn’t matter and put controls directly on the information.There are components of that technology that exist today, but it has to become more sophisticated and more accurate.

Erick Bosire's insight:

Cyber insecurity has been on the growth since the establishment of the first website in 1991. Most governments have a military branch to deal with Cyber Security as the world shifts in technology.Cyber Security is as important for personal info e.g banking details to political intelligence and dynamics and economic espionage. The complexity of technology is also over-whelming policy makers.(Cyber Security and Cyber War by Peter Warren Singer).

The future of cyber security in Australia - YouTube

A panel of distinguished guests talk cyber security at the launch of the ASPI International Cyber Policy Centre, 1 August 2013. Catherine McGrath, Asia Edito...
Erick Bosire's insight:

Understanding vulnerabilities and how to plug those gaps is vital. The evening demonstrated how much work there is to do in this area, but also how much willingness there is from across the public and private sectors to take the issue on and develop preventative and response mechanisms. The next step for the ASPI ICPC is to develop a program for building increased awareness and dialogue around the international aspects of cyber security.

Obama advisor paints picture of cyber-security in 2020

Obama advisor paints picture of cyber-security in 2020 | The Future Of Cyber Security. | Scoop.it
The Internet will look very different in 2020. Internet users will double from the number in 2010 to total of 4 billion
Erick Bosire's insight:

We’ve moved from technology adoption to technology dependence. As the money has moved online so have criminal gangs. The future development of cyber security tools will see programmers working with larger circles, the best in academia and the industry via secure development. This will see products with a security development life-cycle. Information has three major components: availability, confidentiality, and integrity. The first thing that business ever cared about, was continuity, most of the focus organisations had was on disaster recovery. Availability we’ve dealt with, but nobody cared about confidentiality. You couldn’t sell laptops with encryption. But then we had a few major data breaches and we realised losing the data was much worse. Now nobody is addressing integrity. Integrity is where confidentiality was 10 years ago. New security skills will need to emerge, and we’ll need security enabling technologies. We’ll need to focus less on safeguarding our internal infrastructure and more focus on external supply chains.

How Israel is rewriting the future of cybersecurity and creating the next Silicon Valley - Feature - TechRepublic

How Israel is rewriting the future of cybersecurity and creating the next Silicon Valley - Feature - TechRepublic | The Future Of Cyber Security. | Scoop.it
If you're looking for the rise the next Silicon Valley, the place to watch is the Negev region in Israel. Its new cybersecurity juggernaut is breaking new ground in public-private partnership.
Erick Bosire's insight:

Any mobile phone today can be attacked and compromised. These gaps in understanding, these disconnects of policy and reality, mean that we are not only seeing growing tension, but we are also being taken advantage of. It might be at the individual level, being tricked by a hacker to send our bank account information to our mom in Thailand, even though we didn’t realise she was traveling.
