Cyber #security a #priority for #area #election #officials

With election season quickly approaching, Grand Island workers are taking steps to secure their data.

Election officials from across the state are taking advantage of training opportunities to stay up-to-date on cyber security measures.

Last fall Secretary of State John Gale hosted a big presentation. Tracy Overstreet, the Hall County Election Commissioner attended.

Overstreet had the opportunity to meet with officials from Homeland Security and the FBI to learn about ways to protect elections from hackers.

She says there are also risk-assessment analysis taking place on the state and local level right now.

“We’ve got the anti-virus software, we’ve got the firewalls up. The election information isn’t even available to any outside site. The only thing that comes out of the election office that goes out to the election site is our election results on election night,” said Hall County Election Commissioner Tracy Overstreet.

Overstreet says Hall County still uses paper ballots for their elections. She feels this provides even more security and also a paper trail to refer back to.

Cybersecurity a #critical area for #closer #cooperation between #Asean and #Australia

Asean and Australia should work closer together on cybersecurity issues, which range from Internet crimes to fake news, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Sunday (March 18).

In a speech to other Asean leaders and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull during a plenary session at the Asean-Australia Special Summit, he noted that cybercrimes are a transboundary problem that is difficult to police.

“It can have a drastic impact on our populations, for example in terms of critical infrastructure; and it can be insidious – undermining the trust which holds our societies together, for example through fake news.”

The world is getting more vulnerable to cybersecurity threats, not less, he added, and so it is essential for governments to develop new rules and norms to cope with the challenge.

There is also potential for this region to play a role in the international discourse on cyber-security, Mr Lee said, noting that a proposed Asean-Australia Cyber Policy Dialogue can be a platform for greater policy exchange and capacity-building.

Another promising area for strategic cooperation is in developing smart cities, he said.

A new Asean-Australia Smart Cities Initiative, announced by Mr Turnbull on Saturday, complements the Asean Smart Cities Network initiative and Asean’s Masterplan on Asean Connectivity 2025, he added.

Police have arrested four men from the Detroit area for credit card fraud in Northeast Wisconsin. The men are facing multiple charges, including Fraud Against a Financial Institution and Credit Card Forgery, according to the Appleton Police Department. On Oct. 26, Appleton Police received a report of suspicious credit card transactions at a local store. An employee told officers a group of men using multiple credit cards came in to buy gift cards.  The employee recognized that as suspicious behavior and took down a description of the suspects and a license plate number. Investigators found out the group had moved to the Green Bay area, where they had purchased more gift cards and a large amount of cigarettes. Green Bay police located the suspects, and Appleton investigators obtained a search warrant for their vehicle. Police say one of the suspects had a large number of gift cards and cigarettes. Another suspect admitted to buying stolen credit card information and a card reader with the intention of shopping the cards in the Fox Cities. Three of the suspects are from Ferndale, Michigan, and one of the suspects is from Detroit. The suspects are due in court at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Area where NAU student was slain is party hotspot

The neighborhoods around Northern Arizona University’s north campus were mostly quiet Thursday night. Pockets of college students chatted in empty doorways and smoked on dimly lit porches on East Franklin Avenue, just down the street from a boarded-up apartment door painted with the words “R.I.P. Colin our brother.”

It was a stark contrast from a week earlier, when a party in an apartment in an area complex was interrupted by the sound of gunshots ripping through the night. The shooting left 20-year-old Colin Brough dead and his Delta Chi fraternity brothers, Nicholas Piring, Nicholas Prato and Kyle Zientek, wounded in an NAU parking lot.
