Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

IT professionals would rather manage external threats than worry about insiders, a recent survey by Soha finds. But singular focus when it comes to security can end up being a costly mistake. Data breaches have become so common that it’s easy to overlook them. There were 781 known data breaches in 2015, according to the […]

No end in sight: More drama to come in the phone-hacking scandal

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Like the Wars of the Roses, Frank Sinatra’s much-postponed retirement and the proceedings of the Chilcot inquiry, the newspaper phone-hacking scandal seems to go on for ever. With the conclusion of the Leveson investigation into the British press, and the jailing of some journalists, many in the industry may have hoped that, using a contemporary phrase, a “line might be drawn” under this unrelenting media nightmare. It seems not. Rebekah Brooks appears set to return to the chief executive role at News UK, formerly News International – one she vacated when she had to face serious legal charges. She was judged innocent and cleared; nonetheless, many were shocked at what they learnt about journalistic methods at the News of the World and The Sun, and the behaviour of senior people at the titles, legal or not. Whatever lessons have been learnt and qualities Ms Brooks brings to the Murdoch organisation, even the most skilled public-relations exercise could not convince anyone that this was a “fresh start”. Rupert Murdoch has once again signalled a sort of rugged defiance towards the rest of the world, and displayed a remarkable sense of loyalty, even chivalry, to one of those closest to him. It […]

Zimbabwe ICT Policy, cyber-crime bill are nowhere in sight

Nelson-Chamisa1

It’s been 9 years since the Zimbabwean government made a pledge to come up with legislation to curb cyber crime. Of course, there’s no point in holding on to political pledges really. It’s just that it helps give a clear indication of how long we’ve been kicking an issue around. Now that we are in 2015, what has been done to make this a reality? Today we attended a round table discussion on the crafting of the cybercrime bill. The event (hosted by Media Centre) was meant as a discussion point for the potential impacts of the cybersecurity bill on freedom of expression, access to information and the right to privacy to general citizens and the Civil society. It was opened up to different stakeholders in ICT and cyber legislation like POTRAZ, media practitioners, Internet Service Providers and bloggers. Unfortunately, the ISPs and POTRAZ didn’t show up, however, there was representation from legislature. The main delivery was made by Nelson Chamisa, the former Minister of ICT and current chairman of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services. Besides running through the basic aspects of the proposed bill and emphasizing how the bill had to come after a new Zimbabwe […]
