INFORMATION SECURITY

Computer security began immediately after first mainframes were developed. Successful organisation has multiple layers of security in place: i.e. Physical, Personal, Operations, Communications, network & information. Security is a balance between protection and availability. Sec SDLC [General System Development Life Cycle] is a methodology for the design and implementation of an information system in an organisation.

Information is considered to be the Backbone of the Modern world. So the need for protection is also important. Ethical hackers use the same methods to test and bypass a systems defence, but rather than taking advantage of any vulnerabilities found, they document them & provide actionable advice how to fix them so that the organisation can improve its overall security.

Let’s go a little back, and get introduced to art and science of writing hidden message in such a way that none other than sender and the recipient suspects the existence of the message. It can be also called information smuggling. It is called Steganography! It has a Greek origins and means “concealed writing”. Steganos means “Covered or Protected”. Graphei meaning “Writing”. So it is the practice of concealing message or information within other non-secret text or data.

For Detailed we recommend this DEFCON video to make it more clear!

While we are looking at YouTube videos, i strongly recommend the following video by Mr. Pavan Duggal taking about Cyber-law and Indian I.T. acts 👨‍⚖️⚖

Some mental notes you can make by watching above video:

India’s technology act 2000. Chapter 11 not only specify cyber-crime in India & their respective punishment in India, but also this particular legislation has amended the Indian penal code in such a manner to meet various offences under the Indian penal code, in sync with the requirement of the digital platforms. Now if in case u want to steal any computer source code or computer source documents then Be alerted because this activity is itself a cyber crime under sec 65 of the IT Act 2000. The same is punishable with 3 years imprisonment and ₹ 5 Lakh. Earlier the IT act 2000 made only Hacking a crime, but later 2008 amends came with much broader umbrella of computer offences. Like unauthorised task on any computers come within the ambit of these offences. Also 2008 amends says that if you actually publish or transmit content which is sexually explicit then you are further inviting an exposed to section 67-A , which is further an offence punishable with 5 years of imprisonment and fine. Earlier India was not concerned about child pornography as it thought it would be covered under the offense of pornography, But 2008 amends made it an offense. Not only publishing or transmitting but visiting a website that relates to child pornography it’s a serious offence punishable with 5 years of imprisonment and ₹ 5 lakh fine.

Also if you try to exploit the privacy of a person by capturing the images of private parts of a person without his/her knowledge, it’s an offense and is punishable with 3 years of imprisonment & ₹ 5 lakh fine. Also 2008 ammneds has added some new offence or example if you if you transmit any information using a computer which is offensive or has menace character it is a different offence under 66-A. If you try to misuse digital signature for fraudlent purpose then also its an offence under section 72 of the IT Act.

Identity theft offense is punishable with 3 years of imprisonment and fine under section 66-C. Also if u indulge in any activity the relates to cyber terrorism, it is a serious offense made punishable with life imprisonment and fine.

Hope this video was informative and might add something to you knowledge bank!!!
