There are many reasons to worry about it. This social media is hurting our society in such way that it causing harm to one’s privacy, it disseminates misinformation, and effect on student’s grade. It is clear that social media is hurting our society by putting one’s privacy and security at risk. In the article “Teens Privacy Is Threatened by Social Networking” author Peter Bazalgette said, “Can you truly delete entries from social networking sites with the confidence they no longer exist on a server somewhere? You cannot” (Bazalgette p.1).
Other types of risks that BUGusa, Inc. can potentially face without property protection and poor management are: loss in customer trust, penalties for law violations, compliance risk, availability risk, access risk, and more. (Priviti, 2008) B. Discuss in detail what types(s), if any, of civil liability Steve and/or WIRETIME may face if caught. a. BUGusa is facing the issues of their work being stolen and internet hacking. Not to mention WIRETIME is unethical in their actions.
Because of the fear of privacy invasion, the different federal agency databases were held on individual agency specific computer systems and were not accessible to anyone, but the owner. Having such a compartmentalized system did not give law enforcement nor intelligence the ability to assist each other in putting together potentially complex terror plots, and often the more sophisticated the terror plot, the more potential for mass killing (White, 2006). Communication is key in all parts of life, and especially important when dealing with such dire consequences. The USA PATRIOT Act, in Title VII, granted the expansion of information sharing systems in order to better facilitate communication between all agencies involved in counterterrorism. This called for the implementation of the Regional Information Sharing System (RISS) as a central database for all law enforcement to use (USA PATRIOT Act, 2001).
And accuracy further reduces speed. With up to 7.8% of tested sites being wrongly blocked you begin to wonder if Conroy is trolling. And of course with such dodgy plans for censorship, there is a strong opposition. Also opposing the filter is internet superpower Google. They comment that "moving to a mandatory ISP filtering regime with a scope that goes well beyond such material (child abuse and terrorism) is heavy handed and can raise genuine questions about restrictions on access to information."
Internal attacks can be more difficult to find as attackers have the potential to remove any evidence of the attack more easily as they have more knowledge or access rights on the system as opposed to an outside attack. Attacks can be administrated via removable devices such as a USB that could contain some form of malware on it such as a virus. Most internal attacks are conducted by unhappy employees who want to disrupt the organisation by using the knowledge they obtained in the organisation, against the organisation. Additionally, the employee may want to gain access to important data in order to infiltrate and sell the information onto another competing organisation. The
Companies such as this are required not only legally, but ethically to protect the customers’ private information or be held accountable by law. It is also bad practice to allow this sensitive information to be disseminated and stolen by cyber criminals. Since this kind of data must be protected at all costs, certain regulations were put in place so that standards for information security could be monitored. One of these standards is that all personal information is to be encrypted when being sent over the internet and also on the servers. This will make it much harder for the hacker to access the information easily.
They break into our computer for several reasons but mainly to acquire personal information for financial gain, shut down hardware, steal people’s credit information, and destroy data. To protect ourselves from hackers, we should equip our computer with Firewall. This hardware “prevents unauthorized Internet users from accessing private information” (Williams & Sawyer, 2013, p. 361). Identity theft is a serious crime in which thieves steal your name and identity and use to later to make a purchase under your name. Thieves access your personal information by sending out fake e-mail, mining the trash, and stealing your
This is done to prevent a terrorist from using a student status as a cover-up to allow admittance to this country with the intention to commit acts of terrorism. There are many different surveillance methods that the government uses to spy on terrorist suspects, including email, financial records, and store receipts. But, one of the most common methods of surveillance that the government uses is roving wiretaps. This is tapping into phone calls. “The government says roving wiretaps are needed to deal with technologically sophisticated terrorists.” (Abramson & Godoy) But, one of the negatives of wiretapping is that the government might make an excuse for using it to monitor terrorism with the real intention to spy on foreign
This leaves them openly vulnerable to a large extent of threats varying from sexual predators to identity theft to malicious software (malware). Online victimizations of minors include unwanted exposure to sexual material, online harassment and threats, child grooming, invitations to participate in sexual activities or chat rooms and agitated communications that differs from sexual nature but still results in the causing of stress or the feeling of fear or embarrassment. It is highly unlikely that a child of that age would have neither the skills nor the patience to go through the existing maze of settings to be able to make their Facebook account private
Anonymity One of the factors explaining the rise of cyber bullying is anonymity. Social networking sites provide the bullies with the ability to remain anonymous. However, this allows cyber bullies with the opportunity not only to exploit but also manipulate the vulnerable identities of teenagers. The mask of anonymity on the internet has become common and it has become impossible for victims to deal with their bullies directly face to face. People have the opportunity to construct one’s identity on social networking sites such as Facebook and My space.
