Suggested Paradigms and
Needed Cyber initiatives.
By Gerald; Internet Anthropologist Think Tank.
#1) Awards for cyber security. A cyber DARPA.
Like Government contracts for fighter Jets.
The black hats are eating our lunch.
$100 million award for a secure fire wall, anti-virus,
anti-trojan and Rootkit program. Open competition.
There is a lack of funding needed to get even
one step ahead of bad guys on the Internet.
#2) Change in Laws for customer monitoring credit.
allowing ID hacking. Currently the Big three only allow customers 90 day
monitoring of of their accounts, IF THEY HAVE A THREAT PENDING.
The big three credit bureaus do not allow 365 day, email notice of
credit changes and usages. The big three have it in their power
to almost eliminate ID theft, and do virtually nothing to protect customers.
There is virtually no risk to attacking American networks.
Create a cyber force with the ability to take attacking PC and
networks OFF LINE, best defense is a good offense. Establish "rules of engagement"
#4) Defense structure for Internet Nodes.
#5) International Cyber Police.
A force to pursue cyber crooks anywhere in the world.
AND RECOVER VICTIMS MONEY.
This will involve treaty's.
#6) Change in MS security policy:
illegal OS. And law allowing them to shut down
illegal OS's.Thru Cyber Police.
MS current policys block security updates for
illegal OS giving BOT farms a place to grow.
#7) ISP check and enforce minimal security on
customers or cut off www access.
Again a favorite home of bots, unprotected
#8) Valadation system for for security vendors and programs.
The number of fake Security Programs/sites is huge, 300 to 400,
the public can't tell which are safe.
#9 method to change Social Security Number
once the cyber criminals get it. To protect ID
theft victims from continual theft over the rest of their
lives. Once they have the SS# they have the keys to
the victims credit.
These would be a very good start to securing
Looking only to protect American networks is short
sighted. The entire WWW needs protection.
If the WWW comes down the protected American
networks are useless.
