22 Nov Cyber security, what is it and why is it important?
You probably recently read about the guy who hacked into the home security cameras of 4000+ people in the USA & Europe!
If not, here is a brief excerpt from the story –
Steven Hankers from Johnstown, Wrexham isolated himself for 10 years from society and spent most of his time in his bedroom, online. He was arrested, charged and sent to jail for six years for hacking into people’s security cameras and selling the video clips online.
Not only did he hack into 4000+ home cameras to watch people having sex and undressing but he also pulled innocent children into his perverted online world and encouraged them to have sex with each other. Do we dare to ask the question of how this behaviour went undetected for 10 years?
Imagine this, you’re undressing or sharing an intimate moment with your loved one in the privacy of your own home and unknowingly you are being watched and recorded, clips later being sold to online adult sites. It’s frightening and humiliating at the same time. Your privacy and safe sanctuary has been exploited and now will never feel the same.
Even more frightening is the thought that this man could have had access to your children. Recordings of children, whom he had lied to about his age, were found in his possession. He would engage them in a game online and reward them points for taking part in sex acts.
At the time of his arrest, Hankers was found to have access to sixteen, active cameras and also four thousand saved videos.
