    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.

    Are You Prepared for the Onslaught of Cyber Attacks?

    in Technology

    It is said that the only sure things in life are death and taxes.  While this pearl of wisdom has stood the test of time, in the not too distant future there could be an addition to that list: Cyber Attack.  That's because cyber attacks on small businesses and individuals are up nearly 50% in the past year alone.  Where cybercriminals used to exclusively target companies with deep pockets, now that ransomware has become so prolific, small businesses and even the man and woman on the street are finding their online assets and machines being hijacked.  And why not, since most individuals and small businesses offer little in the way of cyber security.  Tune into this episode to find out how cybercriminals are planning to put the byte on you.

    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.

    Ask MomRN Show: Sarah Michelle Gellar on Pertussis, Diabetes, Cybersecurity Tips

    in Family

    Today we are continuing our 7th Anniversary Celebration with new guests and one of our all-time favorite interviews!

    Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and about six million people use life-saving insulin to manage their diabetes. The disease is complex and often overwhelming, creating barriers that may prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities as everyone else. Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietician, Tami Ross joins us to talk about things people with diabetes can do to simplify their lives.

    While being held hostage through your phone or computer by a cyber attacker sounds like the plot of a movie, the reality is it’s happening every day to unsuspecting victims. People are being locked out of their devices—losing access to family photos, financial information and other files—by cybercriminals who are threatening to delete their data forever unless they pay a ransom. Cybercriminals are preying on people with these attacks in the places most of us spend the majority of our time: online and on our smartphones. Joining us to share details of the newly released Internet Security Threat Report is Kevin Haley is director of Symantec Security Response.

    In June 2013, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) shared why it's important to her as a mom to protect kids against pertussis by asking family members & friends to be vaccinated. Her interview ranks as our most downloaded interview ever! Today we are replaying this interview as we continue to celebrate 7 years on BTR!

    We'll also be announcing the winner of the Barbie Bubble-Tastic Mermaid Doll giveaway and a NEW GIVEAWAY!! Tune in!

    WHEN dozens of countries refused to sign a new global treaty on internet governance in late 2012, a wide range of activists rejoiced. They saw the treaty, crafted under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), as giving governments pernicious powers to meddle with and censor the internet. For months groups with names like Access Now and Fight for the Future had campaigned against the treaty. Their lobbying was sometimes hyperbolic. But it was also part of the reason the treaty was rejected by many countries, including America, and thus in effect rendered void.

    The success at the ITU conference in Dubai capped a big year for online activists. In January they helped defeat Hollywood-sponsored anti-piracy legislation, best known by the acronym SOPA, in America’s Congress. A month later, in Europe, they took on ACTA, an obscure international treaty which, in seeking to enforce intellectual-property rights, paid little heed to free speech and privacy. In Brazil they got closer than many would have believed possible to securing a ground-breaking internet bill of rights, the “Marco Civil da Internet”. In Pakistan they helped to delay, perhaps permanently, plans for a national firewall, and in the Philippines they campaigned against a cybercrime law the Supreme Court later put on hold.


    Debate and dissent over the issues raised by the spread of information technology are not new. In the 1990s civil-liberties groups, including the pioneering Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), campaigned against the Communications Decency Act, part of which was eventually overturned by America’s Supreme Court.
