#infosec | US to Give Ukraine $8m for Cybersecurity

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The United States has pledged $8m to support a Ukrainian cybersecurity project. 

The generous commitment was announced by the State Department on Tuesday as part of a “cyber-dialogue” that took place between the two countries in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv. 

A new cybersecurity project sponsored by USAID (the US Agency for International Development) will be the beneficiary of the promised injection of American dollars. Over the next four years, it is anticipated that the project will raise a total of $38m, all of which will be spent on improving Ukraine’s cybersecurity. 

Among other things, the money will be used to expand and develop the country’s cyber-workforce and to support legal and regulatory reform. 

The $8m pledge comes just three years after the US gave Ukraine $10m of cybersecurity assistance. America’s first cash injection was agreed upon in 2017 as part of the first ever cyber-dialogue held between the two countries. 

A review of the cybersecurity projects in operation between Ukraine and the US followed in 2018.

According to the State Department, the third cyber-dialogue held on March 3 and its accompanying financial pledge served to reaffirm “our shared commitment to ensure an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure cyberspace in which all states behave responsibly.”

Issues discussed at the meeting included how to respond to a serious cyber-incident, how to strengthen critical infrastructure against cyber-attackers, and how to secure the security of the 5G network.

On the agenda also were cyber-capacity building and international cyber-policy issues, including engagements in multilateral fora and policies around public attribution.  

Attending the dialogue were America’s acting deputy chief of mission at the US embassy in Kyiv, Joseph Pennington, various officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and representatives from the US Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, and Treasury departments.

Ruslan Nimchynskyi, Ministry of Foreign Affairs director general for international security, led Ukraine’s interagency delegation.

America’s pledge to offer further financial support to Ukraine follows a request by Ukrainian authorities for support from the United States to investigate a cyber-attack. Ukraine asked for assistance from the FBI to examine an attack on Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which it believes was engineered by Russian military hackers.

How to #give your #parents the #cyber-security #talk over the #holidays

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Times have changed. Talk around the Thanksgiving table is a lot different in this tech age than it used to be.

I can picture kids gathered with their electronic devices and adults talking about the latest technology at work or their latest game console. All of this is going on while parents and grandparents are trying to keep up and learn this new language and terminology.

While kids are used to parents talking to them about things in their best interest, the tide has turned. It’s now time for us to have that security talk with mom and dad about protecting them in the cyber world.

The talk

You might not want to bring it up while mom or dad takes a bite of turkey and mashed potatoes, but at some point during Thanksgiving Day, you should talk to them about keeping their personal information safe online.

Unfortunately, we’ve seen too many high-profile hacks over the last year. With just the Equifax breach alone, half of Americans were impacted.

So, look at Thanksgiving as a chance to provide security tips to all of your family members. But you might have to explain it in a way they understand. Many don’t know that a virus also infects a computer and you might get a cold stare when you mention the word “phishing.”

Ransomware and varying types of encryption are also words you might want to stay away from, at least in the beginning.

Phishing

Explain to them that phishing is when someone pretends to be someone else in order to steal information such as a credit card number, password or anything else that could be used in another attack. This is usually done through email and often contains a link to a website designed to trick you. Verizon’s data breach investigations report says 91 percent of data breaches happen this way. It’s also the most common way to get hit with viruses.

In simple terms, let your loved ones know that by avoiding phishing emails now they won’t have to deal with a stolen credit card months or even a year down the road.

There are three main ways to spot a phishing email: bad grammar, a thinly-veiled email disguise such as facebookk.com instead of facebook.com and weird links. You can hover your mouse over photos and links to see where they’ll lead you before clicking on them. If an email claiming to be from a legitimate site is actually going to a suspicious website, that’s a good sign it’s a scam.

Password managers

Let your parents know there are password managers that can help you in remembering different passwords for all of your accounts. It’s not necessary for them to keep track of all of them.

You only have to remember one password when you use a password manager. You just simply log onto that and it’ll sync your browsers and devices, creating security and convenience.

Other misc advice

Some of this might be a little complicated to those who are in the beginning stages of learning technology. Instead of going into too much detail, here are simple ways to explain these terms.

HTTPS and SSL: If you see a green lock next to the URL on a website (that means you’re on an HTTPS page), that means you’re on a website that has a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Ransomware: This is a virus that locks up your files and sometimes your entire computer unless you pay the ransom. The best solution is to back up your files regularly.

Patching: If you get sent an update from a company like Microsoft and Apple, go ahead and update your device. This can prevent hackers from accessing your computer.

Two-factor authentication: Think of this as the equivalent of having two locks on your door. It’s an extra layer of security on top of your computer password. The most common version is a code texted to your phone after entering your password. This makes it tougher for hackers to gain access to your accounts.

The best way of explaining computer security to your loved ones is to compare it to things they’d do at home like locking windows and doors. Showing them statistics of all the millions who’ve been impacted by these security breaches is another good method. Statistically, you’re more likely to be robbed online than you are in person.

Abuse victim forced to give her baby up for adoption was let down by police, says watchdog

A domestic abuse victim whose baby was subsequently put up for adoption was failed by South Wales Police, the police watchdog has concluded.

The teenage mum was initially not treated as a victim of abuse despite eyewitness evidence of an assault, of which he has now been convicted, and evidence of abusive messages.

Her local authority, the Vale of Glamorgan, is also now being investigated over its handling of her case, which saw it enrol her on joint counselling sessions with her abusive partner.

The father of the 18-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, believes the public bodies’ handling of the allegations led to her child, now two, being taken away from her against her will.

Teacher Threatens Give Me A Raise Or ‘Burn Alive’

A Dallas ISD teacher was arrested after police say he sent emails warning staff that they would “burn alive,” if they didn’t give him a raise.

Omar Alanis, 29, admitted to district police that he sent the emails from his district-issued email account to school staff demanding a raise and back pay from August 2016, according to his arrest warrant affidavit.

The arrest warrant says those emails included a threat that the administrators would be “put down” if he didn’t get what he wanted and they should meet his demands if they didn’t want to “burn alive”.

School staff contacted authorities, and security measures were increased at the campus until Alanis was located and brought in for questioning by police.

7 illogical reasons cheaters give to justify themselves

There is nothing ethical about cheating. You might have your excuses and explanations which may be right for you, but your significant other feels cheated and that is wrong. Cheaters paly it smartly until they are caught. And once they are, they come up with extremely lame excuses to justify themselves. Here are some of those: It happened in a different place: Cheaters usually justify by saying that they slipped because they were away from you, travelling and they couldn’t resist the temptation.

Should You Give Your Kid Snapchat or Instagram?

Parents are constantly asking me about their kids and their social media participation. Among other things, they want to know what app or site they should start their child on.  I could recommend some that are specifically designed for young eyes and ears, but those aren’t as popular as the ones that the mass of humanity have embraced.  If your child has a phone, it’s likely that they really want to be on Snapchat or Instagram. Those are by far the most popular right now, with Facebook and Twitter losing traction at least among adolescents. And if you had the choice to give your child access to one or the other – perhaps to get their proverbial feet wet with the whole “social media” experience – I strongly believe it should be….
