2017 Prediction: cyber clouds with chance of pain: threats, invasions, cyber wars and you!

cyber_security_roundup

cyber_security_roundup Unfortunately this edition has to be way beyond 60-seconds. I'm in the second reading of Future Crimes: Everything Is Connected, Everyone Is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It, actually I'm listening to the Audible version, and just ordered the print version. This could possibly be the most important book of the decade and I urge anyone reading this to get a copy and study it.
      Many of you already know that I've been involved in tracking cyber activities since the late 1980s. I have not been digging into the intracies of how it works or the background -- but rather about discovery, tracking and reporting. I've been a highly active Spamcop user/agent, and active participating Knujon user and evangelist. As a reporter for UGNN and Safenetting, I've have closely followed the threats arriving in the mailbox and on the web, as well as tracking and discovering where the threats are coming from, who could be behind them, and the owners/publishers of the sites and internet resources they use. What we've learned over the past decade is that following the money trail is not necessarily the thread to chase. Since the late 1990s, cyber crime and cyber intrusion has taken on another level of divisiveness for religious, political and societal gain.

If you read (or listen to) Future Crimes you will begin to understand what the security community has been preaching about for over three decades. Add these references to your reading list, and you'll see the rest of the iceberg that is the cyber world:

  • Tor and The Dark Net: Remain Anonymous and Evade NSA Spying
  • @War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex Paperback
  • Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know®
  • Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data
  • The Dark Net: Inside the Digital Underworld

Popular Mac developer tool PaintCode 3 now supports Android & JavaScript

I know there are professionals reading who will really appreciate PaintCode 3. This is a new version of a design and development tool for Mac OS -- a vector drawing app that turns drawings into code, acting as a bridge between developers and graphic designers. This is serious stuff. December 6, 2016
