Sad tale of the Chief Cop who's stuck in medieval and colonial policing...policing ONLY with the POLICE without common sensical policing and strategic thinking! At best, Ehigiator does his policing by burying his head in the SEA! Before going to Louis Edet House, SEA had left his head in Sapele, his birth place, hence criminals in Nigeria are sucking him like a ripe mango in Oredo Local Government Area, because they well know SEA and his equally very uncoordinated and headless team are merely flapping their wings before the invading hawks like a group of headless chickens in SAPELE.

Whilst criminals know how to apply the 'Federal Character Principles' in their criminalities, the good-for-nothing Prof SHUAIBU OBA ABDULRAHEEM and his not-good value-for-money team at the Federal Character Commision which has now outlived its used by date, so MUST be binned are sleeping and snoring 'defrauding' the toiling masses of the nation's tax payers, collecting salaries for DO-NOTHINGNESS, and giving Buhammadu Muhari the free hand to discolour the nation's polity through his legendary, unparalleled neopotism and Arabism! In this special SPOTLIGHT for Vigilance, DON OKEREKE in his usual witticism thinks even criminals in Nigeria , especially kidnappers do apply 'Federal Character' in their criminal activities, courtesy of their current operational geographical spread!

On 2nd December, the Rt Hon John Hayes MP, UK Security Minister at the Home Office, will be officially opening this year’s Transport Security Expo at Olympia London.

IA15: Robert Hannigan's keynote speech as delivered

Robert Hannigan, Director GCHQ, shares his strategy for supporting UK IA and Cyber Security. He outlines how the organisation is changing fundamentally to meet the evolving cyber threat and support fully the Digital Transformation programme.

Hosted by GCHQ, IA15 is HM Government’s primary platform for briefing the UK’s information security leaders. This is a full transcript of Robert's speech as delivered at the event on 10 Nov 2015.

Good morning - it’s my pleasure to welcome you here to the second day of IA15.


LONDON, UK: Varonis Systems, Inc. has detailed how its DatAdvantage for Windows and DatAdvantage for SharePoint solutions help Rabobank, a Dutch multinational banking and financial services company headquartered in Utrecht, the Netherlands, control its data access and permissions and enable regulatory compliance.

Fred Touchette, Manager of Security Research at AppRiver has shared the following insight in response to the recent news that a new kind of ransomware, called Power Worm, contains coding mistakes that means anyone hit by it will be unable to recover their files, even if they pay the ransom. The coding errors mean that the worm destroys the keys that could help recover any data that the worm did scramble.

New ESET research shows that users of Ammyy Admin, a popular free remote desktop software, have been unwittingly downloading malware along with the Ammyy product. The malware is used by the buhtrap gang to spy on and control their victims’ computers.

While Ammyy Admin is legitimate software, it has a long history of being used by fraudsters. However, it is still widely used and clients include TOP500 Fortune companies as well as Russian banks.

Researchers from Proofpoint are today announcing their discovery of Abaddon, a new Point of Sale malware which is being downloaded in the process of a Vawtrak infection. This use of additional payloads to enhance attack capabilities offers another example of efforts by threat actors to expand their target surfaces through the delivery of multiple payloads in a single campaign, in this case by including potential PoS terminals.
