Cyber attacks and breaches are becoming a daily occurrence. Targeted attacks by skilled and persistent cyber criminals are now a business reality.

A cyber attack is deliberate exploitation of computer systems, technology-dependent enterprises and networks. Cyber attacks use malicious code to alter computer code, logic or data, resulting in disruptive consequences that can compromise data and lead to cyber crimes, such as information and identity theft.

Cyber attack is also known as a computer network attack (CNA).

Cyber attacks have become more sophisticated and attackers use a variety of tactics:

  • Social engineering: manipulation through phishing, vishing, smishing, etc.
  • Malware: malicious software that damages your computer network or information.
  • Ransomware, including Petya, WannaCry and NotPetya.

NASA chiefs going back 30 years have come together to mark the space agency’s 60th anniversary.

Five former NASA administrators joined current boss Jim Bridenstine in Orlando on Monday. It was the largest gathering ever of NASA heads and included every administrator since 1989. The conference was arranged by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

The longest-serving administrator, Daniel Goldin of the 1990s, told Bridenstine there’s more to the company than human spaceflight and that the science and technology programs can help draw more public support.

Richard Truly of the post-Challenger shuttle era agreed, but noted humans need to explore.
