In further testing, we created a policy that instructed the Email and WebSecurity Appliance to block, for example, customer account numbers from leaving or entering our network. The McAfee appliance applied this policy correctly, even when called on to scan the interior of attachments for the offending data. Again, Barracuda lacks this capability. Barracuda, unfortunately, does not perform content inspection.
We have analyzed the advancing part of e-business on the operations of makers, retailers, and administration suppliers. A system for portraying EC segments and their part in operations is put forward. For organizations that completely abuse its potential, EC offers the likelihood of leap forward changes: changes that so drastically modify client desires that they reclassify the business sector or make totally new markets. To profit from EC, firms must comprehend its potential, its segments, their own particular organizations, and the organizations of exchanging accomplices. Organizations must concentrate on solid associations and the center items and structure that make EC conceivable. They should characterize, create, and utilize the EC foundation that will enable their business to exploit new business open doors. Improvement of powerful methodologies for accomplishing upper hand through EC will be fundamental for achievement in the 21st century. EC requires generous foundation arranging. Seeking after EC objectives with underpowered equipment furnished with lacking transfer speed, badly considered programming, and no cognizant information administration system is a formula for catastrophe. Base arranging is basic to achievement. A severely outlined framework performs ineffectively, best case scenario and even from a pessimistic standpoint welcomes security issues.
Technologies have created a new service environment in every sphere of activities and have pushed conventional boundaries of all the organisations especially in libraries and information centres much farther with the risk and opportunities. This technology in combination with communication tools and information procedures facilitated in generation, acquisition, storage, organisation, searching, retrieval and transformation of information using electronic means. These electronic information sources, used initially to transport textual information, today transports other form of information such as images, videos, and audios. These electronic sources, initially served for specialised clients, now accessed by a wide range of users, ranging from computer specialists, discipline experts, laymen including the novice computer users and students at all levels. This trend has created an emerging important environment namely web environment. The web environment comprises of awareness on browsers, domains, internetsecurity, internet threat, internet usage, resource identifiers and search engines.
Abstract: Recently, with the increasing availability of Internet, E-commerce has captured the interest of individual consumers and companies of all sizes and interests. Moreover, with the advanced technologies now available, it is more and more spoken about the Digital Economy (DE - Digital Economy). The basic idea is that through e- commerce one can achieve the exchange of ideas, goods, knowledge, beyond simply buying / selling of products and services. E-commerce technologies can be used to run a business using the Internet for communication, Intranet or other computer networks. The concept of virtual value is very important because it offers the possibility of digital information in the usual processes occurring in conducting business activities. One of the main goals of e-commerce strategies is to identify and encourage users of information via the Internet, giving them the necessary support. Electronic commerce offers the ability to run a business in a flexible manner that can benefit from the various opportunities as they arise.
AntiVirus consists of a scanning engine that guards all files, the system areas of the computer, and removable media (flash disk etc.) and scans for known viruses. Any detected virus will be blocked from taking any action, and will then be cleaned or quarantined in the Virus Vault. You do not even notice the process, as this so called resident protection runs "in the background". AntiVirus also uses heuristic scanning, where files are scanned for typical virus characteristics. This means that the AntiVirus can detect a new, unknown virus, if the new virus contains some typical characteristics of existing viruses. AVG InternetSecurity is also able to analyze and detect executable applications or DLL libraries that could be potentially unwanted within the system (various k inds of spyware, adware etc.). Furthermore, AntiVirus scans your system registry for suspicious entries, temporary Internet files, and allows you to treat all potentially unwanted items in the same way as any other infection. Data Safe enables you to create secure virtual vaults to store valuable or sensitive data in. The contents of a Data Safe are encrypted and protected with a password of your choice so that nobody can access it without authorization.
• In computer security, authentication is the process of attempting to verify the digital identity of the sender of a communication such as a request to log in. The sender being authenticated may be a person using a computer, a computer itself or a computer program.
The purpose of this paper is to conduct a literature review regarding the security regulations and the services offered by banks via internet. We perform this work on the banks working in Pakistan. Also, the aim is to analyze the existing regulations on the security of the banks and to give them recommendations on how they can improve their security. The regulations are made by State Bank of Pakistan.
• Work/Medium Risk Zone - suitable for when your computer is connected to a wider public network, including direct connections to the internet. This is the default setting, and if selected, the firewall will allow communication in and out only if allowed by the “Application Rules”. If no rule has been created, you will be asked to confirm whether or not communication with a particular application should be allowed.
The secure IOT with respect to e smart home system is. A micro-controller is used to obtain values of physical conditions through sensors connected to it . These integrated sensors such as the temperature sensor read temperature values, the gas sensor detects smoke and cooking gas to avoid fire outbreak. The automatic switching on and off of the light is controlled by the Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) which determines the day light intensity. Also to incorporate security in our design, a motion detector is integrated using Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) to detect movement in the home when the security system is turned on. A relay switch is used to send control signals from the micro-controller to the
Computer security attacks cost as much as $10 billion a year. An attack can damage data integrity, confidentiality or availability. Organizations must understand the potential costs: How would incorrect data affect decision making? What will happen if confidential information is made public? What is the cost (in lost time and credibility) of interrupted service? To understand threats, organizations should ask themselves: Does the information have a dollar value? While more security equals more cost, the cost is slight compared to a single breakdown of services.
» If the risks and consequences can be assigned monetary value, organizations will have greater ability and incentive to address cybersecurity. In particular, the private sector often seeks a business case to justify the resource expenditures needed for integrating information and communications system security into corporate risk management and for engaging partnerships to mitigate collective risk. Government can assist by considering incentive- based legislative or regulatory tools to enhance the value proposition and fostering an environment that encourages partnership.” --- President’s Cyber
Consider an example where a user visits a website and browses to the page: www.victimsite.xyz/myhomepage. Since, this is a user’s home page and it cannot be viewed before signing in so the website redirects the user to the page with URL: www.victimsite.xyz/signin?from=myhomepage. Once the user enters login credentials the website reads from the URL parameter and redirects to ‘myhomepage’ which is user’s account welcome page. Until here everything seems fine. But suppose of a situation where an attacker sends a mail to this user (this technique in terms of security is referred to as Social Engineering) containing the hyperlink with the URL: www.victimsite.xyz/signin?from=www.attackersite.abc. The user enters login details from where he/she is redirected to the attacker’s website. And the trick is that even when the user is redirected to the attacker’s page he/she has no idea about it because the malicious page looks exactly the same as his/her account’s homepage because of the phishing technique used by the hacker. The flaw here in terms of logic implementation is that the actual web application did not validate the URL parameter that is used to redirect the user. 
Since the invention of the Internet in 1994, the corporate world has changed significantly. It is noteworthy that the virtual environment created through the Internet has been adopted across communities to ease interactions. Technology allows users to easily communicate, share ideas, and relay information that is relevant to business functions. Therefore, companies have a duty to facilitate the use of active online systems to enhance the realization of the set objectives. The development of electronic computing and communication technology in the recent past has contributed to increased threats propagated through computer systems – both online and offline. The new class of threats has great potential to jeopardize the capacity of society in promoting internal and external order at local as well as international levels. It is noteworthy that nations are different stages in the networked society although the nature of threats and perpetrators is sometimes hard to reveal. Government players, especially within the security circles, have also been accused of using computer technology to realize socio-political goals. The social media networks have provided a variety of platforms for perpetrators to engage in information warfare and deception in a manner that brings disharmony in society. Therefore, there is a great need for society to appreciate that cyber-threats require utilization of stiffer and stringent mitigation mechanism backed by uniform laws at the international level.
