LONDON, UK: A new study from ESET has revealed that 54 percent of UK parents would have no idea if their child was being cyber bullied, highlighting that most parents are completely ill-equipped and under-educated in knowing how to recognise and deal with this growing threat to children.

LONDON, UK: MWR InfoSecurity has released a CPNI and CERT-UK supported study entitled Threat Intelligence: Collecting, Analysing, Evaluating, that aims to remove the confusion around threat intelligence and gives vendor neutral advice that can be scaled to different sectors, sizes of organisation, and organisational goals. Whilst high on organisations' RADARs, little consensus exists as to what threat intelligence is, and many companies risk investing huge sums of money with little effect on security. The in-depth report, authored by MWR senior security researcher Dr David Chismon, breaks down the wide range of things marketed as  threat intelligence into distinct types, and advises how to build and evaluate a successful threat intelligence programme - and crucially, how not to build one - as well as detailed advice on collecting, analysing, acting on and sharing the information obtained.

United Kingdom – The Queen’s Gallantry Medal has been the United Kingdom’s third level award for bravery, after the George Cross and the George Medal, since 1974. ‘For Exemplary Bravery’ is the only study of the Queen’s Gallantry Medal to have been published. At the heart of this unique book are the stories of extraordinary bravery that earned the Queen’s Gallantry Medal on 1,044 occasions. All of its recipients are listed and all of the published citations are included, with explanatory notes, personal recollections from many of the recipients, and the details of their other awards and medals. Also included are citations never before published. Thirteen appendices provide first-hand accounts of the events behind some of the acts of bravery—bomb disposal, rescuing others from the sea and from fire, and even repelling pirates in the Indian Ocean.
