Local lawmakers introduce bill for child sexual abuse task force

Sen. John Grabinger, D-Jamestown, and Rep. Bernie Satrom, R-Jamestown, are sponsoring a bill that would create a task force on preventing sexual abuse of children and reporting recommendations for legislation.

Senate Bill 2342 was introduced by Grabinger and had a hearing in the Human Services Committee on Jan. 30. No vote or other action has been taken since.

The task force would gather information concerning child sexual abuse throughout the state, receive testimony and reports from individuals, state and local agencies and organizations, and create goals for state policy that would prevent child sexual abuse during the 2017-2018 interim period. The task force would submit a final report with recommendations to the governor and legislative management, which is a group of legislators who determine interim studies and committee memberships.

U.S. Air Force project threatened by cybersecurity cost overruns

The U.S. Air Force is learning a tough lesson when it comes to hardening its systems against cyberintrusions, primarily that the cybersecurity threat landscape changes faster than the military’s budgeting process. The Air Force’s Operational Control Segment (OCX) program, which oversees GPS systems, being developed by Raytheon over the last eight years has run far […]

Martial Arts of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Part One)

Now that the furor has subsided, I thought it would be a good time to talk about Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and the martial arts it contains. Before I begin, however, allow me to share the fact that I’ve been an avid fan of the franchise since it debuted in 1977. Read More….

‘White-hat’ hackers key force in cybersecurity

Amateur expertsare helping to spot potential loopholes, as Cao Yin reports.A very small office near the Sixth Ring Road in Beijing houses a very big dream, one that’sshared by thousands of Internet security enthusiasts across China. The office is the home of Wooyun, the country’s largest online community of “white-hat”hackers-private individuals who deliberately hack corporate and government computersystems to detect and expose security loopholes and help prevent cyber-attacks. Their dream is to build the ultimate, impregnable cyber-fortress. Fang Xiaodun, one of the community’s co-founders, said that unlike regular hackers, whodiscover security risks or potential sites of attack in the hope of financial gain, “our aim is touse the advantage our computing or online skills give us to do good deeds in cyberspace”. As far back as 2010, Fang frequently spent his weekends at a cafe with employees ofChinese Internet giants, such as Baidu, a Chinese search engine, discussing online securityproblems and how to solve them. “We shared the discoveries we had made at our own companies, and often found that someof the problems were similar. But lack of communication and the fact that we worked fordifferent businesses meant that all of us had solved them ourselves,” Fang, 28, said. At […]

Wireless Hacking In Flight: Air Force Demos Cyber EC-130

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

NATIONAL HARBOR: Matthew Broderick in his basement, playing Wargames over a landline, is still the pop culture archetype of a hacker. But as wireless networks became the norm, new-age cyber warfare and traditional electronic warfare are starting to merge. Hackers can move out of the basement to the sky. In a series of experiments, the US Air Force has successfully modified its EC-130 Compass Call aircraft, built to jam enemy transmissions, to attack enemy networks instead. “We’ve conducted a series of demonstrations,” said Maj. Gen. Burke Wilson, commander of the 24th Air Force, the service’s cyber operators. “Lo and behold! Yes, we’re able to touch a target and manipulate a target, [i.e.] a network, from an air[craft].” What’s more, Wilson told reporters at the Air Force Association conference here, this flying wireless attack can “touch a network that in most cases might be closed” to traditional means. While he didn’t give details, many military networks around the world are deliberately disconnected from the Internet (“air-gapped”) for better security. You can try to get an agent or dupe to bring a virus-infected thumb drive to work, as reportedly happened with Stuxnet’s penetration of the Iranian nuclear program, but that takes time and […]

You’ve Probably Never Heard of America’s Worst Police Force

Puerto Rico University Strike

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

On the evening of August 11, 2007, several members of the Punta Santiago Scooter Club volunteered to serve as escorts for a 15-year-old girl celebrating her quinceañera. The yellow-shirted club members’ parked scooters partially blocked traffic on Highway 3, a two-lane road outside the eastern Puerto Rican town of Humacao. Miguel Cáceres Cruz, a 43-year-old member of the club and a father of three, was helping to direct traffic when a police car tried to pass. According to witnesses and police, the cops exchanged rude words with Cáceres, after which three officers got out of the car. In a shaky hand-held video, Cáceres can be seen backing away from the officers as they quickly approach him. He walks backward onto a sidewalk, where he backs into a wall. One of the officers, Javier Pagán Cruz, lunges toward Cáceres. The two tussle and Cáceres falls to the ground. The video briefly pans away, but when it comes back to the scene, Cáceres is beneath Pagán, holding on to the officer’s leg, possibly trying to keep him from pulling his gun out of the holster. As the two men struggle, shouts from a large crowd of onlookers can be heard. Then a […]

Portland police chief wants to add 9 analysts, tech support jobs to help with body camera program, use of force audits

 Powered by Max Banner Ads An outside consultant has found that the Portland Police Bureau’s 930-member force is understaffed by at least 24 people, including officers, detectives and sergeants. Officers’ average response time to emergency calls is slowing, expected to exceed the bureau’s five-minute goal by 50 seconds by the end of the current fiscal year. And the bureau’s rate of clearing violent crimes and property crimes is low: 40 percent for crimes against people and 14 percent for property crimes. Portland’s new police chief cited all those factors in his proposed $181 million budget, seeking nine new full-time positions costing $835,570 for the new fiscal year that begins in July. But the positions aren’t for uniformed officers. They’re for crime analysts and civilian technical support hires. The budget proposal requests money for six crime analysts to examine and compile reports on traffic stop data and do audits of police use of force required to comply with the city’s settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice. The settlement followed a 2012 federal investigation that found police engaged in a pattern of excessive force against people with mental illness. The bureau is seeking another three technical support positions – a digital media […]
