GeekSpeak – Hackers – are we better off with them or without them? Join the discussion Feb 24th at 12pm SLT

Hacking is a battle between good and evil always raging below the surface of the internet.  On the one hand, white hat hackers find faults in the system, in order to improve it.  Black hat hackers just hack for their own benefit.  And then there are grey hat hackers who find faults but also sometimes make what they can for themselves.  Can white hat hackers be trusted not to turn grey, or even black?

What damage can hackers do to you, your city, your world? How much damage could a single hacker do?  Could our world end because of hackers?
But if our systems are ever so hardened that no one can get in through a back door will there come a time when we beg hackers to come and save us from the system?

Are you prepared?  Or are you yourself in the el33t?

Everyone is welcome at GeekSpeak.  And everyone is welcome to suggest new subjects for us to discuss.  If there is something you would like to discuss please IM Vulcan Viper.  We are always ready to receive new ideas.

PAICE NEWS- CyberCrime: A Pandoric Pandemic... Baeric Constantine Reporting...

Cyber-Security has been of the essence, and too few people understand the necessity for protecting our data, and our machines from the ever escalating cyber-threat.

CyberSecurity... just how secure are we, as a nation and as individuals? This is a question that is discussion with the top ranks of those in security.  The Internet is a hotbed for transnational crime, and according to Iain Lobban of GCHQ, the Government’s listening centre, "a significant change has taken place in the modern world where our adversaries employ similar technologies as used by the citizens going about their daily business, so reassuring people that they are being appropriately defended against threats without encroachments on their privacy is very important."

Lobban went on to give some context, "that there are deliberate (malicious) attacks and accidental, cyber techniques have been used to bring pressure on other states, there is theft of intellectual property (such as the theft of Japanese Military Secrets), Cyberspace lowers the bar for entry to the espionage game, both for states and for criminal actors, and that the risks are growing with the Internet, about 60% a year."
