How small businesses can improve their cybersecurity

    It’s not only large companies that face cyberattacks – there are affordable steps small companies can take to protect their business data and IT systems. You can’t assume that your small business is not a target for hackers. As many as three-quarters of smaller businesses are at risk, according to the latest Government Security Breaches Survey, with the worst breaches costing up to £300,000. Small companies face attack from multiple angles. “Like [larger] enterprises, they face targeted attackers who are interested in intellectual property and other confidential data, as well as using smaller organisations as a way into larger ones,” says David Emm, principal security researcher at Kaspersky Lab. And like consumers, they face random, speculative attacks that make up the bu...

Why Women Are More Likely To Look Through Their Partner’s Phone

    When you're in a relationship, even one built on high levels of trust, checking your partner's can phone be a constant temptation. However, a new survey has found that women in the UK are more likely to do so than men. Overall, 27% of women who participated in a YouGov survey said they check their partner's phone, compared to 21% of men. The phone-checking rate is highest among women aged between 30 and 44, with 36% of participants in this group saying they look through through their partner's mobile. It's surely no coincidence, though, that the survey also found men are more likely to have something on their phone that they don't want their partner to see. Overall, 11% of men said they have something to hide on their phone, compared to just 2% of women. This rate rises pr...

A documentary made about radical Islam in Pakistan

    We are so oblivious of what is happening in Pakistan that we are just reacting to the simple impulse of hatred, says Indian filmmaker Hemal Trivedi. Among the Believers is a powerful new documentary that sheds light on Pakistan’s global image problem. The story of its making begins with raw emotion — the hatred some Indians felt toward Pakistan after November 26, 2008—“26/11.” The coordinated shooting and bombing attacks carried out in Mumbai by 10 members of a Pakistan-based terrorist organization, Lashkar-e-Taiba, left 164 victims dead and more than 300 wounded at the landmark Taj Mahal hotel and in or near other strategically chosen locations in the city a hospital, a college, a cinema, a historic Jewish enclave. Hemal Trivedi, the co-producer, director and editor of th...

PM May vows to protect troops from legal witch hunt

    British soldiers will never again face a legal witch hunt, Theresa May will pledge as she says that European human rights laws will no longer apply on the battlefield. In a joint announcement with Sir Michael Fallon, the Defence Secretary, the Prime Minister will say that UK troops will be protected from the “industry of vexatious claims that has pursued those who served in previous conflicts”. Mrs May and Sir Michael will say that in future conflicts Britain will opt out of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), protecting our frontline forces from “spurious” legal claims. Their intervention is a major victory for soldiers, MPs and senior military figures who have fought against the hounding of troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan over allegations that date ...

Thousands protest in Poland rally against anti-abortion bill

    Thousands of people joined a rally in Warsaw, Poland, on Sunday to protest a proposed bill that would institute a complete ban on pregnancy terminations, in line with the position of the Catholic church in the country. The leader of the governing conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party announced earlier last week that he supported the call from Catholic bishops to tighten the regulations, which are already some of the most restrictive in Europe. At the rally, organized by the leftwing Together party, protesters shouted such slogans as keep your hands off the uterus and my body, my business, while some waved coat-hangers as a symbol for the kind of underground abortions that are widespread in the country according to pro-choice activists. Even Iran’s abortion laws are more...
