    How much is too much for kids?

    After all my research and questioning, I have come to the conclusion that there is something of a Catch-22 in the answer to my concern. For every benefit, like improved hand-eye coordination and reaction times there is a drawback, memory problems associated with scanning larger volumes of information, the overload I wondered at earlier on and the increased reliance on a process or device to do tasks that were once performed by the individual, who trades a measure of independence for the convenience and speed of performance.

    What have I learned from all of this? My gut reaction was the correct one, and my plan of action is on course. I will allow my child to use my iPad but on a more limited basis, with attentive feedback and guidance from me to see to it that the pace and information are in line with his ability to manage, comprehend and place it in a healthy context. We will continue to encourage his imaginative play and reading to him as an equally valuable tool in his development. Or, as with most things, it’s about moderation, balance and applying ourselves seriously as parents, instead of letting technology babysit our children, become their role models and shapers in any meaningful way.

    From a cybercrime perspective, the opportunities are boundless: Seemingly everything has a computer in it, cars and pacemakers included. It’s almost certain that the sophistication of exploits and attacks will increase, and that new exploit modes will surface with the ongoing computing and mobility revolution.

    You might think it is a safe bet that the cost of cybercrime will grow year-over-year. When the Ponemon Institute predicted in 2012 that the cost of cybercrime would decline, we were surprised - after all, every indicator pointed toward the opposite. Then just recently, Ponemon released their 2013 “Cost of Cybercrime Study,” which shows that they now project that the cost trends are indeed increasing- 26% up in 2013 from the 2012 reported figures.

    Certainly the landscape of cybercrime is broad, and as expected cybercrime has become much more sophisticated. Techniques you might only consider in the realm of espionage have become part of the tradecraft of cybercrime. Over the past few decades as the world economy globalized, so too has cybercrime...
