Murders, rapists, paedophiles and international drug smugglers were among the criminals jailed across Merseyside this year.

Officers have spent months and in some cases years working tirelessly to bring these callous criminals to justice for their horrific crimes. Below are all the details about 500 of the men and women put behind bars in 2018.

When a data breach occurs, the effects outweigh the financial sphere, the reputation and breach of the privacy of a company’s customers. A breach can also significantly affect the careers of those employed in that company. According to a new Kaspersky Lab and B2B International report, in the case of 31 percent of last year’s data breaches, there were people who lost their jobs. Of these, 29 percent of SMEs and 27 percent of large companies were experienced employees in areas not related to IT.

The purge came too late for Heather Heyer. Last August, amid the fallout from the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, the major technology platforms on which the “alt-right” had arisen, recruited members and organized its violent event decided to clean house. Facebook and the video game chat application Discord moved to delete the groups and chatrooms affiliated with the violent white supremacist groups present at Charlottesville, where 32-year-old Heyer was killed and dozens were injured when a car plowed into anti-racist counter-protesters. The neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer was forced to move to the dark web after it lost its domain name registration and ability to fend off DDOS attacks. The horse may have bolted, but the stables were looking decidedly more clean. But a year later, as the remnants of the alt-right prepare for an anniversary rally in Washington DC and, pending a court case, Charlottesville, many of the players involved in the first … [Read more...] about A year after Charlottesville, why can’t big tech delete white supremacists?
This week’s cyber attack on blogger Manuel Delia’s blog was not an isolated incident but rather the latest link in a long chain of events. The malicious DDoS attack, intended to cripple the website of a government critic, is concerning because it shows what lengths some individuals will go to, and how much money they are willing to spend in order to silence an uncomfortable voice. Delia has accused the government of commissioning the attack which, he says, is being carried out by Ukrainian individuals. The government has naturally denied all involvement, and there is so far no information to back up Delia’s claims. But one must ask the question: who would have an interest in crippling the website of a government critic? Daphne Caruana Galizia’s blog had come under a similar attack in March of last year. Back then it was also suspected that the government was behind the attack. (For those wanting to lay the blame on Adrian Delia, the PN leader was not even in … [Read more...] about TMID Editorial: Cyber attacks and other forms of bullying
