Almost one year has passed to the SamSam ransomware attack at the city of Atlanta which had taken down the multiple municipal systems in the city. Atlanta city had to pay up to $17 million to bring back the situation under control. The city municipality hired Gary Brantley as a new CIO to repair all the malfunctions which caused the cyber attack and to modernize the city against future cyber attacks.

Although Atlanta city has taken some steps to eliminate cyber attacks, a few more cities such as Greenville, Del Rio, and Texas have recently met with cyber attacks. So the question is what is happening with all these municipal governments and why they are so easy to get targeted by cybercriminals?

Alan Shark, the executive director of the city’s Public Technology Institute, said that the municipal governments are more vulnerable to cyber attack than the corporate sector because the corporate sector has been investing largely on cybersecurity since Target Breach attack in 2013 which had exposed the data of 41 million retailers publicly.

The municipal governments are not paying or have failed to pay people with great knowledge about cybersecurity. It is the responsibility of the senior officials of all municipal governments to realize that there is no other option except keeping cybersecurity high. They should take services of companies like Centerpoint IT, which have all the necessary tools and in-depth knowledge to eliminate the chances of the modern cybersecurity breaches.

Alan Shark also said that apart from taking the services of the third party, the municipal government should also provide cyber awareness and training to the municipal workforce. This is possible only if the municipal governments become serious about avoiding future cyber attacks.

The adult entertainment industry is finding this behavior of users helpful to combat piracy and copyright problems.

Once a viewer uses this technology, AI searches for over 50,000 videos and provides the best match for a particular adult actor. AI checks for hair color, biometrics, and other face related measurements. Every adult platform is using face recognition technology to eradicate piracy and provide the legal content to the viewers.

The adult industry is increasing day by day and the internet is playing an important role in it. The adult industry expansion is not accounting for videos and magazines available at store sales.
