We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Sean Fuery, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 00/00/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 01:01:54 – 01:02:42

WOW! To much power for one man to wield. If I were to change one thing,and I think all three of us in the course of the last hour, we all alluded to, if I could change one thing, it would be less regulation and more enforcement. If there was one thing that is going to create a safer environment for card holder data and a more standardized way of insuring that data be safe is the enforcement of penalties. I don’t believe it is enough to do this, I think people are going to be called to action when there is a certain amount of pain or discomfort inflicted as we talked earlier about the cavity, there’s going to be that set of the population that says I’m not going to worry about this until it really hurts and unfortunately when it hurts it is generally to late to do anything other than reconstruct something that has been damaged or destroyed. To put it into an enforcement policy that mandates that before their is a problem you will be required to do this, this, and this, and if you fail to do this,this, and this, this will happen to you. It could be loss of privileges to process cards, it could be monetized and perhaps a fine, or fee.

Over in Europe it is very popular to increase the percentage of the processors cut on the transaction, simply as a way to motivate them to action, but certainly enforcement. Enforcement is the key to making a program like the payment card industry data security standards successful, and as we’ve mentioned it we haven’t quite gotten to that point when all five card brands agree on what should be the case, but I believe we are getting closer to it every day.

We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Greg Whisenant, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 00/00/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 59:36 – 01:00:22

Boy, I’ll take that, it works right, it does work, right? [Absolutely] I think it’s getting people to ask their agency to join. That would be what really helps. If you call your police department, and having your law enforcement agency call us, and say we are interested in doing this. It’s going to make this happen more quickly, definitely more affordable, and it’s going to be a better end result. That will help the most to get people encouraging their local law enforcement agency to join, and quickly behind that is to sign up themselves because we will be coming out with some new stuff that will give them more than just some data. It’s going to give them the ability to interact more specifically with their local neighbors.

Thanks Greg for your quote and wisdom, and support of the CyberHood Watch…

We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Denise Pellow, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 00/00/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 01:00:50 – 01:02:50

WOW! That’s an enormous question. We could talk about that for another hour. Really, I guess what I want to say, you know it’s my dream to stand in front of a national audience with thousands of parents and be able to communicate the message. Most people would say, “You’re crazy that frightens me to death”, that’s something I just love. I could stand in front of five-thousand parents and give a speech and I would be perfectly happy.

So, you know, there isn’t any one thing, I just want the message to be understood to parents that this doesn’t have to be a bummer, and this doesn’t have to be a drag, and this doesn’t have to be a fight with their kids. If we take that outlook of, can work on this together. I am a parent, I do have parental responsibilities. These are the rules of our house, and I do tell parents that the child using the computer is a privilege not a right. The parent bought the computer, the parent typically buys the cell phone, the parent pays for the internet connection, so this is a privilege not a right.

And so, hopefully, their kids can open up enough to be able to help their parents understand, and part of what I teach parents is how to use the social media. Like, I like my parents to get on Facebook. I want people to understand how to tweet and how to use all those great things, because our parents are business people too.

And so, my encouragement to them is to sign up for Facebook, find out what kids are doing, and use it for yourself. You’d be amazed of the advantages, you know Dave and Bill what great social media can do for our businesses.

So, my final message to parents is to be pro-active, pay attention, put those safeguards in place, educate themselves, and know their resources. And I think with that they should be pretty good to go.

We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Gregory Evans, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 00/00/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 01:22:38 – 01:26:57

Well, I appreciate that and appreciate those comments, I mean that was very nice of you, but I have been blessed. Yes. I started on the other side, that’s why I know so much on this side. And my dad use to tell me, when I first did my first hack in high school; big one that I got caught at, let me just say that well, not the first one. And he said, “Son, if there was a way, you could take what you do, and change it around and make it legal, you could be very successful one day, but I just never saw it…At all.

It wasn’t until, God, spoke to me and put me into a situation and said, “Greg, you’re going to have to change your life” and I did that now I’m able to do interviews with Dave and Bill and tell people how Greg use to do it. Yes, you can make a lot of money when doing it the other way, you can make way more, but you have way more risks, but you can still be successful doing it the way I’m doing it.

What I’m doing is no different than DeCaprio in the movie, “Catch Me if You Can”. He did it for years and when the FBI couldn’t figure out a case they went to him, and he showed them, and he still consults with them. But these are the types of people; it’s a new era out there. And these are the types of people, people like me, people like who were portrayed in the movie. These are the ones who are going to end up protecting you because of the new breed of criminals out there.

And so, my encouragement to them is to sign up for Facebook, find out what kids are doing, and use it for yourself. You’d be amazed of the advantages, you know Dave and Bill what great social media can do for our businesses.

Now, I call them high-tech hustlers. So, we’ve come up with these tools at LIGATT Security, and every tool that we come up with is based off of my ideas.

How did I…How was I able to pull off some of the biggest hacks? I was trying to be modest and didn’t want to talk about it, but for some of your users, who say well, that he is not a real hacker or he may not know what he is doing. I made…I was hacking and we were grossing over a million dollars a week as a computer hacker.

As a hacker for hire, for companies, my cut was over six-hundred thousand a week doing it. When we ended up, the whole empire got caught, and things were coming crashing down, I was the only one that ended up standing tall and taking the blame for everyone, but I had to personally pay back ten million dollars to the government for the hacks. AT&T wanted twenty-four million dollars from me. Sprint, MCI, some of the other companies we hacked into, they wanted even more money.

So, when I’m talking to you about computer hacking and how hackers can make NBA figures, I’m talking from experience. I’m talking about I know what the market is for hackers. I know firms looking for hackers, I know who hackers are targeting, that is why it is so easy for me to predict when someone is going to get hacked into before they get hacked into.

So, because I was hacking these people for years. Now, other hackers are just getting on to it, and they’re doing the exact same thing.

Remember this, I’ve been doing this since I was thirteen – fourteen years old, I’m age forty now, and this is all that I’ve ever wanted to do. Didn’t know I was going to make it legal, but this is all I ever wanted to do.

So, if you are going to listen to anybody about it, listen to the person who made a living, a great living doing this, not someone who read a book, and went and got a certification and tell you how to protect yourself. That’s it.

Thanks Gregory for your quote and wisdom, and especially your support of the CyberHood Watch…

We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Ken Knapton, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 11/03/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 01:10:55 – 01:12:21

Well, you know for me I would kind of go back in history just a little bit, I’d go just a little bit back to a technology that’s first coming out and you know I wish, I really wish, if I could change one thing it would be that technology wasn’t adopted by the technologists first. I think that has been really detrimental to keeping families safe, because parents are worried that they are going to hit the wrong button and the computer is going to melt or their going to lose all their data or their going to hit the wrong thing and their computer is not going to work anymore.

And so, when technology comes out and the technologists, and the techies are the first ones to kind of latch on to it and start using it, it makes it a fearful environment for everyone else, everyone who doesn’t understand technology becomes very afraid to touch it or to try to mess around with it. So, that was really why I spent the time to put this book together. It was to try to help demystify technology, to demistify the Internet and the technology that our kids are using. And to just try to help some of these digital immigrants understand the world their digital native children already understand.

Thanks Ken for your quote and wisdom, and support of the CyberHood Watch…

We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Anne Collier, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 11/03/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 45:40 – 46:55

I think, probably the most important thing, this is what I tell parents who ask me, and reporters who ask me about parenting and online kids. The most important thing you can do is talk with your kid about how he or she is using the Internet. Because what you read in the media, what you hear from child safety advocates, is not, it’s a generalization, it’s not the way your child is experiencing the Internet.

And so, the only way, (it’s so individual); the only way you can fully understand that is to talk with your kid. Ask questions about the Internet, very similar to the questions that we always ask them, you know… whose house is the party at, how you getting home, whose on your friends list, do I know them, do you know them all, you know that type of thing.

And just simply being a good parent and your child is going to be just fine. It’s the children who don’t have engaged loving parents who we worry about more. Those are the ones who are at risk offline, and the research shows that those are the ones who are most at risk online, the kinds of risks that scare us the most.

Thanks Anne for your quote and wisdom, and support of the CyberHood Watch…

We recently bestowed the “CyberHood Watch Magic Wand” to Sonya Smith-Valentine, and here is the exact quote:

Recorded live on 11/03/2009 and the Quote Timestamp is: 01:15:03 – 01:17:22

There would be a couple of things I would do. One would be to find a way to educate the police a lot more on identity theft. There is a lot of resistance still when people go in and to try to file (just even a police report), a lot of places where police are like, oh, we don’t take those reports, and that’s a big deal. That’s a big hurdle sometimes in dealing with some of the credit card companies when you are a victim.

So, number one is I would make it mandatory that all police departments have to take identity theft reports, and they’ve got to put a system in place to take them.

The second thing, I would probably want to do if I had that magic wand is to make it easier for the police to get information about identity thieves from a lot of the Internet companies. Because sometimes there are hoops and hurdles they got to go through to try to get, you know, information on the IP address of where the computer was or things of that nature. So, I would put some laws in place to make it easier for them to get information.

And then the third thing that I would do is put some laws in place to make it a little easier on Identity Theft victims. Right now it’s kind of more of a, you are guilty until proven innocent. And I’d like to see it be, you are innocent until proven guilty, and have some of the laws changed so it makes it a little easier for the identity theft victims to be able to say and fight back to a company that wants to hold them liable for something that they didn’t do. And have some teeth and legs in it to be able to say hey, “You guys didn’t go and do any investigation”.

Just to give you an example, I’ve got a client who was a victim. She told the company, and she gave them the list of charges. And they said, “Well, somebody used your pin number, so it had to either be you or you gave your pin number to somebody, so we are holding you liable”.

Well, if they had actually done just a little bit of homework, they would have realized that, for one, there were some charges that were at a restaurant or whatever, and if they had gotten a hold of the charge slip, which we got real easy, the signature isn’t my clients. You know just some simple steps that they could have taken, but they wanted to put in on my client.

So, I would put some laws in place that make it easier for Identity Theft victims to say, “Hey it’s not me and you guys need to do some homework”. But that’s in my wonderful magical wand world.

Thanks Sonya for your quote and wisdom, and support of the CyberHood Watch…
