    Combating Cybercrime On A SMBs Budget

    in Technology

    What happens on Main Street stays on Main Street... When hackers breach the security of corporations it makes headlines, yet there is rarely a mention when cybercrime hits small to medium sized businesses (SMBs). Very few people are even aware that today’s cybercriminals are targeting SMBs, not just super-sized global businesses"


    According to Verizon’s 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report, 71% of the data breaches investigated by the company’s forensic analysis unit targeted small businesses with fewer than 100 employees. Of that group, businesses with less than 10 employees were the most frequently attacked.


    Tune in to listen to hightly sought after speaker Manuel W. Lloyd discusses why cybercriminals are zeroing in on Small Businesss that thinkk they are too small to worry about. You'll be surprised at which SMBs are at greater risk even compared to larger companies like Sony, Home Depot, Target, and others.

    Beware: Malware Crossing! Organized Cybercrime Comes to Town

    in Technology

    One of the most dominant trends observed in the cybercrime during 2015 was the spread of organized crime groups to new territories.


    Using banking Trojans to attack banks in new geographies is a significant step because it is considered to be part of the malware’s evolution. Before they can venture into countries they never targeted before, crime groups have to invest in an adequate preparatory stage that includes reconnaissance of the banking systems in that geography. They also have to build or pay for the major components of amassing a botnet in that area: spam campaigns in the corresponding language using suitable social engineering ploys, web injections to match language and transaction authentication requirements, and local money mules they can rely on for moving the stolen money to the hands of the attackers.


    In this podcast we will examine some of the most impactful crossings made by malware in 2015, and unsurprisingly learn that all of them were made by major organized cybercrime groups.

    AfterSchool App: FBI, FBI CyberCrime, ICE, & USAG Should Parents Be Concerned?

    in Family

    Is the "AfterSchool" App a new Craiglist or BackPage?  What is the FBI, ICE, Homeland Security & USAG doing to make sure that this program is properly monitored and does not become a source for Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking, and Sexual Child Expoliation. 


    It could be the most innocent app on the market, however, in light of the abuses sustained by children acorss this country, to include allegations of cyberbullying and other threats against children, we need to make sure that this app does not become a funnel for trafficking, abuse and threats against children.

    The Trouble With Texts

    in Technology

    Until recently, a virus was something you contracted by clicking on a link or an ad that then had you download a piece of malicious code otherwise known as malware.  If you were lucky, your sytem's anti-malware programs picked it up and eliminated it before it could do any real harm.  If you were not, then your harddrive was corrupted to the point where it either slowed to a crawl or froze up completely.  So news of a new virus would seem to be no news at all.  Except that in this case, Android phones in Europe have been infected via text messaging with a new virus called Mazar.  Once installed, this malware redirects all web traffic on the infected smartphone through a proxy that allows cybercriminals to harvest personal and financial information from victims.  While the virus has not yet spread across the Atlantic, it is only a matter of time.  If you want to have safe text, tune into this episode of Working the Web to Win.

    Taking a Byte out of Cybercrime

    in Internet

    The economy may still be down, but cybercrime is most certainly doing boom business if the latest FBI statistics are correct.  Not only does the average web surfer have to worry about spam and phishing, but they have to keep a weather eye out for organized criminals online who buy and sell everything from bank accounts to credit card numbers and social security numbers. Recently the FBI helped bring down a gang in Estonia that literally hijacked more than a half million computers and racked up $14 million for the effort.  So if you want to find out how to protect yourself online, tune in.

    New Cybercrime Crackdown Could Backfire And Criminalize Security Professionals

    in Technology

    Good hackers--aka security researchers--are worried about the possible legal and professional ramifications of President Obama's new proposed crackdown on cyber criminals. Their concern:  the administration's legislative proposals to tighten the screws on black hats could backfire and instead criminalize the good guys fighting the good fight to identify cybercrime activity and root out security weaknesses before the bad guys do.


    Jeremiah Grossman, founder and CTO of WhiteHat Security, and Harley Geiger, advocacy director and senior counsel at the Center for Democracy & Technology, will join Dark Reading Radio to explore whether the administration's legislative proposals can actually stop the bad guys and protect victim organizations as intended, and how they could inadvertently render penetration testing, vulnerability reporting, and other key security research activity illegal.
