The newly enacted Cybersecurity Law, with its ‘ideological control’ guidelines, is worrying locals and foreign companies alike.

Parents voice safety concerns after large fight at East Allegheny HS

Parents filled the room to voice their concern for their children’s safety after a large fight broke out last Friday at East Allegheny High School in North Versailles.

Several parents told the school board that how they handled the fight was not acceptable and said the school isn’t safe.

“I shouldn’t be hearing from teachers that they are afraid to come to school. I shouldn’t be hearing from students that they are petrified to come to school,” one parent told Channel 11’s Catherine Varnum.

Parents were not notified about the fight until Monday. Parents were about threats on social media saying that there would be a shooting at the school.

Additional sex charges raise new concerns of possible trafficking ring

Police forwarded new information to prosecutors that they believe could result with a human trafficking charge being filed against a former Muskogee firefighter who already faces several sex crimes.

Muskogee Police Officer Lincoln Anderson said during a news conference Tuesday the investigative findings have prompted concerns about a possible child pornographic, trafficking ring. Anderson said investigators have identified a second child who is believed to be a victim an another adult co-conspirator.

Zackery Blaine Perry, 30, was charged Jan. 19 with four felonies that included possessing and distributing child pornography, sexual exploitation of a child and crimes against nature. He was charged Monday along with Melissa Skelton, 26, for conspiracy and sexual abuse of a child younger 12 years old — both are being held without bond.

Despite security concerns, mobile banking here to stay

It’s 2016 and it seems that online banking is here to stay. After all, the majority of adults in the United States own mobile phones, and more than three-quarters of those are internet-enabled smartphones. Since 2011 when the Federal Reserve System board of governors began tracking such things, the use of mobile banking tools has […]

F-35 cyber security testing delay prompts vulnerability concerns

F-35 cyber security testing delay prompts vulnerability concerns

The F-35 fighter jet could allegedly be vulnerable to cyber attacks, according to concerns raised in recent reports focusing on the potential vulnerability of the F-35 computer. US political website, Politico first reported in September that “military officials delayed key cyber-security testing of the F-35 fighter jet out of concerns the drills could damage the sophisticated software that serves as the backbone of the next-generation aircraft’s operations.” The Politico report said the delays had not previously reported and were confirmed by the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO). The breaking Politico report from November 9 said: “Those pushing for the drills to be conducted as planned said there was irony in the program office’s concerns that cyber tests could damage the fighter program and disrupt real-world F35 operations”. The report continued that “…Those concerns which delayed the testing are exactly why the tests are necessary for the Lockheed-Martin built plane, and for the testing to ensure the Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps can maintain air dominance for decades to come.” The tests are needed to determine the strength of the F-35 cyber security system or whether the computer system is vulnerable to hackers.

The Capability: Government’s national facial recognition plan raises privacy concerns

The Capability: Government’s national facial recognition plan raises privacy concerns

The Government is planning to spend $18.5 million setting up the National Facial Biometric Matching Capability, known as The Capability. A Government-commissioned assessment has warned it could collect more information than necessary and there is a risk it will not do enough to protect data. The Capability will give law enforcement and security agencies quick access to up to 100 million facial images from databases around Australia, including drivers’ licences, passport photos, and perhaps even Facebook photos. The photos will be coordinated through a system called The Hub that will help agencies quickly identify people and tackle cross-border crime. Privacy activists, such as Australian Privacy Foundation vice-chair David Vaile, are concerned. “Biometrics, unlike any other form of identification, is tied to your biological existence, which has some benefits for its use as an identifier but it has the great downside that if something goes wrong, if it’s breached, if it’s hacked, it can’t be revoked,” Mr Vaile said. “It’s not like cutting up a credit card or getting a new phone number or something. “Basically if anybody manages to get this, they breach the security, potentially you’re compromised for life.” Source: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-12-17/government’s-facial-recognition-system-sparks-privacy-concerns/7035980

Kremlin’s ties to Russian cyber gangs sow US concerns

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The relationship between Moscow and Russian cyber gangs may be tightening, spurred by international sanctions and disputes with the United States over military action in Ukraine and Syria, experts and federal lawmakers warn. Moscow has long been known to source its technology, world-class hacking talent and even some intelligence information from local cyber crime rings, or “the Silicon Valley of Eastern Europe,” said Tom Kellermann, chief cybersecurity officer at security research firm Trend Micro. In exchange, officials turn a blind eye to the rampant underground economy these cyber crime syndicates have constructed, fueled largely by mammoth data breaches at major U.S. retailers and banks. “That symbiotic relationship has been going on for at least 10 years, if not longer,” said Jonathan Wrolstad, a cyber threat analyst with FireEye, a security firm that follows two of Russia’s more prominent intelligence hacking groups. Lawmakers tracking hacking threats agreed. In Russia, “there are private actors, there are government actors, and there are some that have almost a contractual relationship with the government,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. The quid pro quo has been mutually beneficial. Often times, “when someone is identified as being technically proficient […]
