Late night talk-show host James Corden came in second.

Jimmy Fallon, Jackie Chan and Nicki Minaj also made the top ten.

McAfee has put the list out for 13 years now and cautions against clicking on suspicious websites, reported CNN.

Government has said that it would incorporate cybersecurity education into the basic and senior secondary schools in Ghana as part of an agenda to build capacity of citizenry in tackling cybersecurity.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said this in a speech read on his behalf by Mr Ambrose Dery, the Minister of the Interior, at the opening of the National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2019.

The President said, including cybersecurity education in the curriculum of basic and senior secondary education would help in building the capacity of citizens from an early stage and take the efforts made during the awareness month a step further.

The National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2019 is being celebrated on the theme: “Demonstrating Ghana’s Cybersecurity Readiness” and spans from October 21 to 30 in Accra.

He said Ghana would continue to look up to other countries which had made great strides in cybersecurity to ensure regional and international collaboration in her journey towards achieving cybersecurity maturity, as part of the country’s digital strategy.

President Akufo-Addo said his government had undertaken a number of initiative that serve as testament to the fact that Ghana had made notable progress and development in the area of cybersecurity and that “We do not plan to rest in a state of complacency, but rather vow to do more”.

He said the Country had ratified the African Union Convention on Cyber Security and Personal Data Protection also known as the “Malabo Convention”, and the Council of Europe’s Convention on Cybercrime, popularly referred to as the “Budapest Convention”.

He said “these conventions would enhance our cooperation with other countries at the policy, technical and operational levels in dealing with cybercrime.”

The President said to secure the country’s digital journey, the government had tasked the National Cyber Security Centre, through the Ministry of Communications, to ensure the security of Ghana’s digital space.

“I am reliably informed that, Ghana’s National Cybersecurity Policy and Strategy (NCPS) have been reviewed to reflect current cybersecurity developments and are consistent with international best practices,” he said.

Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the Minister of Communications, said the country was no exception to cyber-attacks, especially as government was poised at improving the digital space, adding that, everyone who used any electronic device was a potential victim of cyber attack.

She said digitalization held many opportunities for the nation, especially in the areas of job creation, hence the need for every government agency and the private sector to support the agenda of building a strong digital economy.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful said as the country hosts the secretariat of the African Continental Free Area (AfCFTA) Agreement, there were numerous opportunies that would be presented to businesses and individual citizens.

She, however, said hosting the AfCFTA Secretariat was a wake-up call for all and sundry to support the agenda of securing the digital space to protect everyone from cyber attacks.

The Minister said by 2020, all government payments systems would be done electronically and that also called for securing the cyberspace.

#deepweb | 8 arrested in illicit sex business include OK teacher

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A local school teacher and seven others are behind bars for using massage parlors as a front for illicit sex businesses.

“Operation Velvet Fury” is a state-wide crackdown by multiple agencies for over a year.

The Oklahoma Attorney General’s office along with the Tulsa County DA’s office, Tulsa police, and other local law enforcement have been scouring the dark web, encrypted apps and other online chat rooms working to decode exactly who these people are.

“Over the course of this investigation we have discovered vast networks and infrastructures that has allowed these illicit massage businesses to advertise their practices while giving the johns and those who run them a sense of anonymity….for the johns who have been out there who believe they have operated with anonymity, that their actions will not be discovered and that they somehow have escaped attention from law enforcement I would say–we’re coming for you. “Big Bob”, Ok Jazz”, “Woodsman”, we’re coming for you,” says Assistant District attorney Kenneth Elmore.

Of those people arrested just yesterday– we know they face several counts of racketeering, procuring for prostitution, conspiracy to commit a felony, violating state statutes, among other things.

According to the Oklahoma attorney general’s office, one of the seven arrested, Kacey Williamson as of yesterday was a teacher at Ripley schools. Ripley is a town just west of Cushing.

Her picture has been removed from the school’s website and the school has not returned our calls.

Court documents show Williamson stated online in conversations that she was starting a new life as a teacher but would still keep “select” clients.

It also shows she would not bring the johns to her home because her children were there.

We reached out to the district but have not heard back.

Of course, law enforcement agencies tell us this is not the end of this crackdown and more arrests can be expected.
