Cyber Security

"Another of my hobbies, also discovered at an early age, was practical magic (tricks). Learning how this or that trick works, I practiced it many times until I reached perfection. To some extent, it was through the tricks that I discovered the pleasure of obtaining secret knowledge."

Kevin David Mitnick


The first hacker attack in the world occurred long before the invention of the Internet. Way back in 1903, in London, at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, the Italian inventor Guglielmo Marchese Marconi was preparing to demonstrate the advantages of wireless (radio) communications. According to the inventor, it was impossible to intercept communications with this form of communication. Marconi himself was 300 kilometers from London, and in the hall of the institute the equipment was tuned by his comrade-in-arms John Ambrose Fleming. Literally a minute before the demonstration, the device in the audience began to emit the characteristic sounds of the Morse code, which formed the words: "Nonsense", "One Italian guy heavily swindled the audience." The messages stopped a moment before the start of Marconi's broadcasts. Demonstration was conducted, but the reputation of Marconi and Fleming was spoiled. Who was playing a trick on the radio pioneers? The fact is that the telegraph company, working with wire communication, rightly suspected that the invention of Marconi could bring her enormous losses. And, in order to discredit the new know-how, they hired a British illusionist and a large wireless enthusiast John Nevil Maskelyne. Maskelyne was pissed at Marconi for patented technology that the magician had successfully used three years before.

Since then, information technology has come a long way. And the relevance of data protection transferred through these technologies has grown with their development. With the invention of the Internet, which for a couple of decades from the World Wide Web has become a world information ocean, the need to protect information has become an indispensable condition for survival in this ocean. Because predators living in its depths, use any vulnerability in your defence to get to your information and your money, which, in the end is the same.

One of the fundamental factors for ensuring cyber security is information literacy and awareness of the need to ensure this security. A person who lightly clicks a link that came to an email from an unfamiliar address is similar to someone who enters a dark gateway in a bad area, blindfolded and with purse in his hand. Most of the cybercrime is made possible by the human factor, rather than by gaps and vulnerabilities in the computer defense systems of a commercial company or by a bad antivirus on a home PC. Unlocked computer of the employee who went to lunch, personal flash drives, downloading unlicensed software from the first sites caught ... The list can be replenished for a long time.

In case if you attend International Forum of Modern Security Technologies SAY FUTURE: Security you will find out about main aspects of cyber security, on cyber crimes and criminals (one of them is cited in the epigraph).
