Dealing with cyber crime
As if it came from nowhere. You are not aware of it. But in a slow and cruel way it creeps through our privacy. Cyber crime is what we call it. Another complication of modern technology. Our children are bullied. Sometimes they hide it from us. It leads to further complication. Things even end in suicide sometimes.
Cybercrime, as the most devastating and easiest way to commit a crime, has an adverse impact on the individual and society in general. And with its wide variety it has appeared like a Frankenstein in front of us. Sometimes he uses the computer as a mother instrument with the aim of attacking an individual. Or sometimes these mere instruments themselves become victims of the genius of technology.
Yes! Genie you have to tell him. Because the experience knowledge you need to attack a computer is very critical. Surprisingly, children between 14 and 25 years old are the ones who cover the most offenders in this field. The question is why was it so easy?
The great advantage of the computer is the ability to store data in a small space, it becomes a curse as a result of cybercrime. Easy accessibility is the curse. Through complicated codes, the cybercriminal seeks an escape from human guilt. Sometimes they use a sophisticated but brilliantly done logical program and attack.
And see the wide variety of the way. Email bombing, logic bomb, Salami attack, denial service attack, virus attack, data theft, web hijacking, and the latest in hacking. Crimes are evolving in increasing numbers. In no time it is destroying the financial information of banks and other institutions that deal with money. Harassment through emails is a common phenomenon and women are the main victims of this crime. While children are helpless victims of cyberbullying. Dissemination of obscene material, pornographic element entangled them like a spider web. Unauthorized access through the computer system causes indecent exposure.
Not only the individual or financial institutions, even the state, face danger. And when we speak of its threat to the state mechanism, it is not enough to qualify it as a mere crime. It becomes cyberterrorism, collapsing state security, threatening official functionality, violating government structures established by law. Terrorism against humanity, social harmony is disrupted by spreading religious, racial, linguistic and regional hatred of groups or castes. The total social balance falls into a tremendous crisis.
Since the beginning of its evolution, cybercrime has overshadowed the field of innovation and intellect. Intellectual property law becomes something of an extinct species. Software piracy, copyright infringement, trademark and service mark infringement, theft of computer source code and so on.
Laws have been introduced and applied in reaction. The government of different states takes action, even adopting a synchronized method to protect cybercrime, but at the end of the day, greater social awareness is the only way to end it. Keeping information that belongs to yourself is the first thing to do to avoid cyberbullying. Making your kids aware of cybercrime is a priority. Particularly for strangers and chat buddies, as these photographs are used as an obscene smear tool. We need to alert them not to submit any photos online. We must monitor the sites our children access to avoid any type of harassment or deprivation of children. The latest antivirus software updates are something to depend on. Technology is the only option to protect yourself from technological threats. Backup maintenance should never be forgotten to avoid data loss in case of virus contamination. We must be careful when submitting the credit card number to any site that is not protected against fraud. It is better to use a security program that gives control over cookies to other functionalities. And, above all, remembering the old proverb: “Prevention is better than cure”.
