All of these hugely popular sites have suffered significant hacks in recent years, exposing hundreds of millions of innocent users' details to criminals.

In light of these attacks, it has specifically highlighted the real threat facing companies, even those that live and breathe tech.

Speaking at the inaugural WIRED Security event in London, Sadie Creese, head of cyber security at the University of Oxford, explained how businesses and their employees can become resilient to such insider threats.

For longer than we know, people have been trying to hack into our systems, Creese told the audience.

Over the years, we ve invested resources and money to ensure it s hard for people to break into our systems - but the problem is that you could be hacked by someone from the inside, with valid access to some part of your system that gives you access to your digital infrastructure.

I now no longer have to hack 50 organisations, I hack one cloud and I get every single employee using that cloud.

The significant and successful cyber events of 2014 might well prove to be the cyber tipping point, where businesses and governments together finally acknowledge the fragility of their enterprises, the grave threat to national and economic security, and the need for executive-level oversight.

The LogRhythm Security Intelligence Maturity Model offers a compelling framework to help organizations advance in their journey to combat advanced cyber-attacks while simultaneously restoring confidence in the Internet.

Another alarming statistic has been revealed about the number of businesses that have suffered a cyber-attack, along with a warning that companies are becoming increasingly complacent when it comes to their defences against such threats.

A survey by Lloyd's of London, which quizzed CEOs and other senior management at around 350 European companies, found that no less than nine out of 10 big businesses with a turnover of €250 million plus – that's around £215 million or $280 million had been hit by a 'significant' cyber-attack in the last five years.

Despite that fact, the research discovered that less than half of those organisations are worried about getting blasted by a breach in the future.

Lloyd's CEO Inga Beale declared that European businesses are 'complacent' – and that it's a reality that a company will be "hacked or attacked in some way", at some point.

Which is definitely a fair point.

Beale warned: "There's been an element of complacency in the past, but it's going to become more prevalent."

A 16-year-old from Plymouth with mad computer skills has been handed a surprisingly lenient sentence of a two-year rehabilitation order, despite causing chaos with a string of online threats and cyberattacks.

After all, you can now get 10 years behind bars for piracy.

The boy, who can t be named for legal reasons, sent a tweet to American Airlines on February 13th last year reading, One of those lovely Boeing airplanes has a tick, tick, ticking in it.

Hurry gentlemen, the clock is ticking.

A similar message was sent by the boy to Delta Air Lines on the same day.

He was also involved in a cyberattack on SeaWorld, which reportedly cost the ever-honourable company around $465,000 £353,000 , as well as ones against the Professional Hunters Association of South Africa, Iraq's foreign ministry and the Chinese government.

IT systems at Scottish Parliament suffers similar cyber-attack to recent Westminster assault

The Scottish Parliament has been hit in a ‘brute force’ cyber attack from ‘external sources’, officials have confirmed to Silicon UK.

It seems that the attack focused on MSPs and staff with parliamentary email addresses, and officials warned of potential account lockouts and failed log-ins.

The attack was similar to the assault on the British Parliament in Westminster in late June.

That cyber attack had targetted MP’s email accounts and caused havoc with government communications.

“The Parliament’s monitoring systems have identified that we are currently the subject of a brute force cyber-attack from external sources,” Paul Grice, the Clerk/ Chief Executive said in a statement.

CBR looks into this certain type of cyber attack.

Spear Phishing is a type of phishing attack, which is a method of attack used by hackers in order to steal information like usernames, passwords and bank details.

Classed as a type of fraud, Spear Phishing targets organisations and companies in order to obtain confidential information.

It can also take the form of installing malware onto a victim s computer.

Malicious intentions are normally the reason for such actions, with this type of cyber attack one of the most successful in the wild today.

Information such as credit card details, usernames or passwords are the most common aspects which criminals seek to access.

Much of the Internet was brought to a screeching halt Friday as a cyberattack on a company many had previously never heard of brought down many of the most popular online services, including Twitter and Spotify.

As of Friday afternoon, much of the drama was still playing out, though more details are slowly emerging.

Sometimes described as the "phonebook" or "GPS" of the internet, DNS enables browsers to connect with websites.

When you enter a URL, like twitter.com, into your browser, you understand that you are trying to access Twitter, but your computer can only point you to the correct website when the URL is translated into a specific numerical code called an IP address.

Much of its data is duplicated and stored on servers in several regions so, say, users in New York can access the site as quickly as those in Hong Kong.

Thanks to DNS and DNS service companies, your browser knows which data is the best to access, and they also keep the data current.

But unlike other home-based computer whizzes trawling the internet for amusing Twitter memes and the latest hacking strategies, the 22-year old known only as Malware Tech this weekend stopped a potentially devastating international cyber-attack in its tracks.

He wants to remain anonymous, not least because he may have got in the way of some serious international criminals, but is believed to be a malware expert working for a US company but living close to his beloved coastline in south-west England.

Since the ransomware attack started affecting UK hospitals on Friday afternoon, he did not sleep for 48 hours as, together with a handful of friends online, he was instrumental in the fightback, identifying the “kill switch” which stopped the attack in many cases.

“I’m not a graduate,” he told one reporter.

“I had planned to go to university but ended up getting offered a job in security a year prior, so I took it.

MONS, Belgium AP — NATO officials, representatives from member states and private industry are meeting to discuss how to better defend against cyberattacks, which alliance leaders have called a security challenge that could cause as much harm as conventional military attacks.

Ian West, chief of cybersecurity for NATO's Communications and Information Agency, told the conference in the Belgian city of Mons on Thursday that "all of us are facing the same ever-increasing number of incidents, types of incidents and sophistication of incidents."

In July, U.S. President Barack Obama and other NATO leaders agreed to add cyberspace as a domain for alliance operations, along with land, sea and air.

They also committed NATO's 28 member countries to enhancing their national cyber defenses "as a matter of priority."
