Lifecycle Of Cybercrime Cultural Cyber Security Brian Hay Data Report Launched

Cybercrime expert Brian Hay has launched a new report focusing on the best way to combat cybercrime, through truly understanding it. It offers insights into the prominence of the dark web and how to stop exfiltration of sensitive data.

Cleveland, Australia - December 7, 2017 /PressCable/ —

A new cybercrime report has been launched by Brian Hay, the cyber threat specialist, detailing how to combat cyber threats in today’s climate. Brian explains that it all has to do with understanding the lifecycle of cybercrime, and applying cultural cyber security for protection.

Brian Hay is the executive director of Cultural Cyber Security, which was created to help clients migrate their technology reactive security posture towards one that is proactive, intelligence led and drives business outcomes, reduces risk and grows people.  

Whilst Cultural Cyber Security provides technical security support through key strategic partners it advocates organisations need to transition towards becoming a business enabler, a driver of profit and outcomes and when that has been defined, then look at the technology best placed to deliver. It also offers CCS strategic consulting, and cultural transformation, helping to improve security throughout a client’s business.

His new report links to Sun Tzu’s “The Complete Art of War”, in which the author emphasises the need to “know the enemy.” From there, it is easy to deduce that the more information someone has on their enemy, the greater their chances are of defeating them.

However, that knowledge needs to be based on information and intelligence. This allows people to make smarter, business based decisions that can improve their business. 

The report goes on to detail that, through applying the logic of “Art of War”, readers can deduce that the attack technologies so often guarded against when it comes to cybercrime are just the tools of the enemy. They are the means to the end, and it’s the purpose of that end that is more worthy of debate.

Cybercrime encapsulates three primary sectors: nation sponsored attacks, organised crime, and hacktivism. Further delving into these sectors reveals that organised crime arguably represents 90% of all attacks instigated, the motivation of which is to make criminal profits

The report dives into the popularity of the dark web for trading information, because ultimately this information equates to money. By effectively monitoring the dark web, it’s possible to massively reduce the exfiltration exposure of information.

Full details on the report can be found on the URL above. Readers can get more information on how to combat cyber threats by checking out other articles on the site here: https://culturalcybersecurity.com/blog.

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — A group of United Nations human rights experts says Sri Lanka has yet to respect individual rights, with people kept in custody for excessive periods pending investigations, and reliance on confessions that are often extracted under torture or duress. A three-member delegation of the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention concluded a 10-day visit to the island nation on Friday. They told reporters that individuals are being deprived of their rights in a range of facilities such as police stations, prisons, open work camps, centers for juveniles, mental health institutions and rehabilitation camps for former combatants...

Zimbabwe ruling party meets to seal Mugabe's fall from grace

Dec 15, 2017

HARARE, Zimbabwe — In an open space that Zimbabwe's ruling party has called Robert Mugabe Square, delegates gathered Friday to seal the fate of a man they had revered for decades but removed from power in dramatic scenes last month. Emmerson Mnangagwa has already been inaugurated as the new president and party leader, replacing Mugabe, who had led the party since 1975 and the country since independence from white minority rule in 1980. Friday's ZANU-PF party meeting is the final step in Mugabe's fall from grace after the military put him under house arrest, hundreds of thousands rallied in the...

Ex-Russian minister jailed for 8 years over $2 million bribe

Dec 15, 2017

MOSCOW — Russia's former economics minister was handed an eight-year prison sentence Friday after being convicted of accepting a $2 million bribe from President Vladimir Putin's top associate. The case against Alexei Ulyukayev has been widely seen as part of infighting between Kremlin clans. Ulyukayev was a prominent member of a group of liberal-minded Cabinet members, while his nemesis Igor Sechin is the most prominent representative of the hard-line flank of the Russian elite. Sechin heads Russia's largest oil producer, Rosneft, and his clout seconds only that of Putin. Ulyukayev was detained a year ago at Rosneft's headquarters following a...

Brexit steals some of Britain's Christmas cheer

Dec 15, 2017

VILLEVENARD, France — Frederic Berthelot has eight hectares (20 acres) of vines on the slopes above this tiny village in France's Champagne region, his vineyard distinguishable from others in the area by the tiny rose bushes planted at the base of each vine. The roses are a bellwether for parasites. But as Britain and the European Union crawl through a protracted divorce, Berthelot has more to worry about than bugs. His century-old business decided to start exporting to Britain for the first time just as the country voted to leave the EU. The pound immediately plunged, making imported wine more...
