Negligence is very closely connected with human conduct. It is therefore very probable that while protecting the computer system there might be any negligence, which in turn provides a cyber criminal to gain access and control over the computer system. This negligence is usually a property of under resourced IT security provisions and the improvement of security barriers within software packages and network structures could lead to improved security.

The next line of defense many times is your antivirus software, which monitors all online activities such as email messages and Web browsing and protects an individual from viruses, worms, Trojan horse and other type’s malicious programs. More recent versions of antivirus programs, such as Norton Antivirus, also protect from spyware and potentially unwanted programs such as adware.

A Study on Cyber Crimes, Cyber Criminals and Major Security Breaches

Cyber security is the top concern for today’s business owner and technology executives. It can be rightfully said that today’s generation lives on the internet. We are living in a digital era where we are constantly using the internet and constantly generating data. This data is stored on the cloud which is basically a huge data server or data center that we can access online. Now for hackers, it is a golden age. Cyber threats are not only increased by the years, but they also are becoming harder to recognize and also evolving with time so they can easily bypass normal antivirus. The Internet is not a safe place as we might think it is. There had been multiple cyber breaches in the past that has compromised privacy and confidentiality of data. Even big companies like eBay, AOL have gone through major cyber breaches even though they have a lot of security measures taken to protect the data. So it’s not only that small individuals are targeted by the hackers, but even bigger organizations are constantly being targeted.

Preventing Cyber Crimes by Using Data Mining Techniques

Preventing Cyber Crimes by Using Data Mining Techniques

ABSTRACT :-Globally the internet has been accessed by enormous people within their restricted domains. When the client and server exchange messages among each other, there is an activity that can be observed in log files. Log files give a detailed description of the activities that occur in a network that shows the IP address, login and logout durations, the users behaviour etc. There are several types of attacks occurring from the internet. Our focus of research in this paper is Denial of Service (DoS) attacks with the help of pattern recognition techniques in data mining. Through which the Denial of Service attack is identified. Denial of service is a very dangerous attack that jeopardizes the IT resources of an organization by overloading with imitation messages or multiple requests from unauthorized users. The survey of the various technologies used for this purpose is done in this paper. The technology will help in careful investigation of the crime and group them in the form of a cluster.

CYBER CRIMES & SECURITY

CYBER CRIMES & SECURITY

Most of the cyber crime prevention models concentrate on the technical aspects of cybercrime, such as the technical implementations that can be used to deter cybercrime, the manner in which cyber crime should be investigated. While the main stream traditional crime prevention models focus on the human element in crime, cyber crime prevention models focus on the technology. It appears that the current thinking in cyber crime prevention appears to put the technology first, and forget that the main difference between cyber crime and 'traditional' crime is that the means of the crimes have changed, but not the motivation or the human element. Both traditional and cyber crimes are in the end committed by human beings, and victimize other human beings. The field of criminology is also yet to catch up with the explosion of the Internet and coincident explosion of cyber crimes. Until such a time when technology is sufficiently developed to be able to eradicate cyber crime, it must be considered that cyber crime will continue to increase unless effective measures to stem it are put in place. It is very important to have a solid theoretical basis in the form of crime prevention models, for efforts to tackle cyber crime to be effective. There needs to be more understanding about computer users, the demographics, and specific characteristics of computer users that have an impact on their vulnerability to crime. The current research therefore concentrates on the development of a crime reduction and/or prevention model with a specific focus on identifying different classes of users and tailoring the responses according to the type of computer user. According to the facts listed beyond, the researcher proposes a new cyber crime reduction and / or prevention model, which can be used within the most of cyber crime types existing.

Thus, the issue of Cyber crime in Nigeria is one that the youths are embarking on as a means of survival or a way of meeting up with the posh life-standard set for them by the corrupt public servants who block up all the legitimate means of achieving a poverty free-life. The Nigerian cyber criminal may be likened to a soldier under conditions of warfare gunning for dear life. In Nigeria, cyber crime is more or less a function of a denied rights or needs and values. Hence, cyber fraud, for instance, becomes necessary and supportive for many Nigerian youths left unemployed or unemployable by the social order (Smalleger, 1999:367). The role of Misgovernance, in blocking the people’s access to legitimate means to upward mobility in Nigeria, is not in doubt. So many graduates have been so frustrated by the age discrepancy in job recruitment process that they now have no other choice than to achieve their dream “any how”. No preacher many convince them to quit cyber fraud when they know that up to $400bn has been cornered into private pockets since independence. No! at least, not when they continue to live among the corrupt public servants who live like gods among men, while the masses stand so small (Sagay, 2010).
