What is Cyber Security?

Hey Geeks, Welcome back,

Today we are going to discuss Cyber Security. Before getting to know about Cyber Security, Let’s explore the term security. Security means protection from potentially harmful sources. It also refers to ensuring complete possession of your resources, that nobody is interrupting you things that affect your statistics and livelihood. There are systems and companies whose purpose is to provide securities, for example, Security Forces, Security Gaurd, and CCTV Monitoring.

What is Cyber Security?

But Security is not limited to the physical It is virtual too. The internet is vast and growing every. It has an immense of information about anything you get answers to by searching related keywords or phrases. Even we are using AI as assistants. Unwanted people use this information to, disturb someone’s life, stole money, and much harmful cause to software or hardware.

Here is a story to give you a better understanding of Internet Security. There was a girl named Reyana, who use to do online shopping has accounts on many e-commerce websites that she uses to purchase different products. They have an email address, phone no, and credit cards detail of Reyana for faster and hassle-free purchases. All this information is on a server. She receives an email embedded with a coupon code she has won. To redeem the coupon, She needs to fill in her e-commerce account credentials.

This email didn’t appear fishy to her at the time, as she thought it was just an account verification step. Later, She realized the danger she would be facing. When she receives her monthly credit card bill with a large amount spent. Who spent? How do you think this happened. The email she received was fake and, the shopping cart calm account witnessed unauthorized access from a third party. This type of attack is known as a cyberattack and, The person who carries it out is called a Hacker. Reyana has prevented this attack with the help of cybersecurity.

Cyber Security involves techniques that help in securing digital components, network data, and computer systems from unauthorized digital access. There are multiple ways used to encounter cyberattacks based on the network and system you are using. So let’s talk about different types of cyberattacks.

Types of Cyber Attacks

1) Malware Attack

Malware is suspicious software that damages files and steals information. Malware is software, written and spread by hackers. Hackers use this data to misguide the community and disturb the peace. There are many different types of malware viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, and many more.

2) Phishing 

In this type of cyber attack, hackers send phishing links through social media, email, and SMS. These links are consist of the information about the original platform or services you daily use that appears genuine to you and willing to click the link. The goal is to get secret information like credit card details, login credentials.

3) SQL Injection

SQL stands for Structured Query Language that is a database language to fetch queries based on tables. When a cybercriminal tries to edit, delete, and update the information of an SQL database table.

4) Man-in-the-middle Attack

Man-in-the-middle attacks occur when A Hacker gains access to the information path between the user and the website server. The hacker takes over an IP Address of your computer and monitors the communication line between the user and the website. This attack commonly happens with unsecured WI-FI networks and also malware.

5) Password Hacking

Password Hacking is an easy way to accessing someone’s system by guessing the password. Cyber Criminal uses different hacking software to guess password based on public information It includes your name, address, Date of Birth and phrases you discuss daily. Hacker also retrieves the password through a cookie or by small password saving systems. 

How to be safe from these Cyber Attacks 

A cyber is not something that comes from outside the world. You got targeted because you fail to apply proper securities, Hackers knew that. There are few cybersecurity practices that you can implement to avoid a cyber attack. They are as follow:

  1. Installing firewall: A firewall, as the name suggests, It is a virtual wall between your computer and the internet. Firewalls filter the incoming and outgoing traffic from your device to safeguard your network, and they can either be software applications or hardware reinforcements.
  2. Implementing Honey Pots: Honey pots are just like how flowers attract bees. Honey pots are dummy Computers that attract attackers. These are systems built to look vulnerable to deceive attackers and safes real systems.
  3. Strong passwords:  Using the name, DOB, address, and any other personal information as a password is like offering hackers at dinner. Never use your details or easy vulnerable passwords. Always use complex passwords that must include alphabets, numeric digits, and special symbols.
  4. Install Antivirus Software:  Installing Antivirus software safeguards your system from suspicious files. There is a lot of paid and free antivirus software are available with different features you can install as per your need. Sometimes antivirus comes with services like Firewall, Password protector, and Transaction protection.
  5. Avoid insecure WiFi: Always avoid doing transactions, logins, or surfing sites on insecure WiFi networks. They can steal your information in the middle of you and the server.
  6. Avoid Doubtful emails: There are plenty of platforms that share your information with another website to improve promotional content. Hackers uses this information to send phishing emails or malware to collect credentials.

This step enhances your network, system and regular update of the operating system installs the latest security patch that works against the newest threads.

Cyber Security and Professionals

Attackers won’t harm only individuals also affects to public and private sectors too. Cyberattack on these sectors are more deadly, cause losses, and collapse the system. The motives of such attacks are many starting from tampering with crucial data to monetary gains.

Let’s have a look at a few of the cyber attacks that companies faces to various public sector organizations and large corporations face the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). In this form of attack, hackers gained access to networks for a prolonged period to continuously gain confidential information. Companies that work with website traffic are targeted by the Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, where networks are flooded with traffic that, in turn, leaves legitimate service requests. DDoS is used to block the complete server by using multiple Dos systems.

Simple Security system fails to satisfy the security levels of big sectors. Companies hire cybersecurity professionals to work on identifying cyber threats and securing a company’s network. There are multiple job roles in the field of cybersecurity. If hacking fascinates you, companies hire Ethical hackers to improve security. Such professionals try to expand network vulnerabilities just like how a hacker would do but only to identify those vulnerabilities and resolve them for protection against an actual cyber attack. But If you are looking to design robust security structures, then the role of a security architect is also hird by the companies. A chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is an enterprise security expert who plays a crucial role in the overall safety of the information in an organization.

How to hunt your dream Job
Computer programmer using a laptop

Finding a job can be one of the most challenging things people experience. It is quite frustrating to look for the first job, making a career change. Don’t lead the rat race and follow steps that work with the current scenario. Some facts and researches show that more than half of employed people are considering getting a new job.

I’ll be discussing some working techniques to get rid of the hassle and land your dream job. There are certain things that you can follow are mentioned below.

The role of your resume

The first step to get a job is representing yourself. A resume is a thing that brings about you to the recruiter. It is the only thing that influences the recruiter to call you for an interview or not. So, a Perfect Resume is an essential thing before applying. If you have the required set of skills that the company is looking for, but you don’t present them chance decreases.

Researches show that the average recruiter will spend about 3.12 minutes reading your resume and make his/her mind about whether to hire you within the first of reading your resume. This means your resume is the only weapon that can make you ace your dream job. Spend more time on your resume. Here some tips that you can follow:

Avoid Spelling Mistakes: Interviewers reject applicants because of poor grammar and spelling mistakes – usually, this indicates the carelessness and lack of attention.

Keep it simple: Recruiters reject candidates because of overusing design elements, fancy fonts, clip art, images, and emoji. Just keep your resume simple and straight forward don’t use jargon that irritates and vague.

Keep Updating your resume: Every time before applying to companies, double-check your resume, update the latest reference check links (social media, projects, and GitHub), include and exclude things according to the company.

The power of Referral

Finding jobs on online job sites is easy. There are some websites like naukari.com and glassdoor.com. These can help to find a perfect job according to you. They notify you about new job vacancies and hiring team information to reach out. But Statistics show that more than 60% of jobs are grabbed through networking and Referral by the existing company employee. The Referral way of reaching out is the most successful way to get a job. Some admirable words for you through a referral can shortlist your name and put you a step forward. The referral way is all profitable for all three The Recruiter, Referrer, and you. Both Recruiter and Referrer get a commission for bringing a value providing employee to the company, and you get your job. There are facts that about 80% of jobs are

not posted online. So never wait for the job openings to be posted online. And hiring teams are heavily inclined towards the referred people of the hiring organization. If you are specific about your dream job and organization, then never wait for the job posting. Ask for a referral to any hiring member of the company.

Recruiters and hiring managers are on your side!

People usually get nervous while facing the interview. This way, they failed to answer with 100% potential that somehow impacts your overall performance and brings changes to disqualify. Recruiters and hiring teams are not devils they also want you to hire, but they check you different abilities and perspective to verify what you have written in your resume. The blunder candidate makes, they use incorrect references and sources in their resume.

The other way, You can take the help of hiring a person by reaching out to them through their LinkedIn or social media(where he/she stays active). You can drop a message to them, asking about the recruitment process. or by sending your resume and asking for a referral. This way, Either you get success or learn how about the process of that specific company. People who are most willing to respond to cold messages are those who say “we’re hiring!” in their LinkedIn job header. These people also keep on posting about the jobs and company be active there. The same kind of people will start engaging with you to get enough space to explore other recruiting processes. This way, Your network grows.

Consistent Networking

Always maintain a network even if you’re not searching for new opportunities. Around 77% of Recruiters are dependent on LinkedIn. While LinkedIn is a job searching platform, It has pros and cons too. Reading articles related to your job type, interact with others, stay active, and share information that can help others, you optimize your profile and your online Presence. You never know which article or post influences the hiring team, and you got placed where you want.

There are ways to reach out to organization people through LinkedIn, asking for a referral or help to reach out to their HRs. They might not give a referral, but the information provided by them can help you while giving an interview.

If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile yet, then for sure, You are missing a large number of opportunities that you might crack easily.

We willing to Dig Deep

Sometimes companies don’t advertise their roles on bigger platforms like GlassDoor or LinkedIn jobs. Often you will have to go to their website and apply directly or even find out through word of mouth. These jobs easy to crack because you see a reduced number of candidates since they are harder to come by.

LinkedIn Networking can help to know about such companies. Their process can be old ways to reach out through emails and visit the company branch in events.

Maintain your Portfolio

If your job application contains s portfolio items such as a GitHub account, LinkedIn profile, or personal website, be sure to maintain these. Portfolios are a great way to distinguish a candidate and show a genuine passion for work. Conversely, pointing hiring managers to outdated and broken projects linked could have the opposite effect.

Create a website about your abilities and qualities. This thing gives an extra edge to the hiring team. A website including all your projects and experience embedded shows how your dedication to your work.

Some Quick Tips

  • Sometimes your social media profile can affect the whole recruiting process. Don’t post on Political issues, Religion, and Debatable.
  • At last, if you get a chance to ask questions, Ask. Question create a difference, Hiring team may remember you by this gesture.

Best ways to improve your programming skills

how to improve programming skills
how to improve programming skills

Either you are a newbie or a professional in programming. You are always in quest of new ways to enhancing your skills. That’s why in this article we have shared the best ways to improve your programming skills which will surely help you to do so.

1.Coding,Coding and Coding

I have chosen this to be the first way to improve your programming skills because it is the most difficult and central piece of it. By practicing code daily you realize your mistakes in designing, error handling, and threading. Do not stop just after solving the problem, it’s not always better to stick to your first solution, which is just found by using brute force, your next solution should be more optimized and well structured. Participate in coding challenges that are regularly taking place on various platforms like code forces, CodeChef and Geeksforgeeks, etc.

2.Go and Read books

Almost every newbie coder ignores books in favor of online tutorials. But the fundamentals hardly ever change, the coding books will help you to learn into a level of detail where online tutorials can be only a dream of. Here is the list of some of the best coding books which will help you to improve your programming skills.

  • Clean code
  • Code complete
  • A beginner guide to C
  • a smarter way to learn JavaScript

3.Listen to a podcast

Learning through listening can be an effective and enjoyable process. Listening to a coding related podcast can be helpful for you to get updated by the trends and will also help you learn new techniques. Podcasts will also help you to learn through the mistakes of various experienced programmers. Here is the list of some podcast which you should listen to as a programmer.

4.Follow coders on social media

If you like someone’s site or app and you know the responsible person for it then you should follow them on social media. Because it will help you to join the solid networks of coding professionals which will be useful for you when you need help. Like on Instagram there are various accounts that regularly post related to programming and also on LinkedIn there are so many experienced programmers who share their learnings.

5.Contribute to Open-source /GitHub

It doesn’t matter how experienced you are when you contribute to an open-source. Every time you gonna be learning something new through this process. Whether that’s from observing someone else’s code or getting feedback on your own. It will be a brilliant learning source and a huge confidence builder for you.

6. Work on real projects

The next way of improving your programming skill is to work on real projects but here the question arises that where you will get the real-time projects. So for landing some real-time projects you will have to start pitching to various local businesses and companies. Or start sending cold emails and freelancing proposals to local agencies. You can also get work through posting gigs on freelancing platforms as we have mentioned above.

7.Practicing Data Structure, Algorithms, and Design related problems

This is the most critical of things to do for becoming a good programmer in my opinion. Because most of the good programmers that I have met or I know till now are well versed in the data structure, algorithms, and Computer science. There are various advantages of learning data structures and algorithms. Because the data structure is a key piece of any programming language it makes you good at problem-solving.

If you want to learn Data structure and Algorithms you can use Geeksforgeeks and Javatpoint.


8.Talking to a fellow programmer

Discussing your problems or new learnings with your fellow programmers can be the best way to improve your skills in programming. Like if you are solving a problem in a group with your fellow programmers then it will improve your thought process because everyone in the group will come with a unique perspective of solving that problem.


9.Reading Code

If reading blogs can help you improve your programming skills then obviously reading code will help you more than that. But the thing is that reading blog is easy as compared to code. Still, you should start reading the code of open source projects, Fellow programmers, and there is a various website where you can read the code and you should also read your own code in order to improve your programming skills.


10.Playing Coding Games

I have included this way of improving programming skills because if you follow these ways like reading, listening, and watching tutorials soon you will start losing interest in that. That’s why adding some fun into this process here is the last and most interesting way which will help to improve your programming skill is playing coding games.

Here are some of my favourite coding games:


11. Share what you learn or create

It can be a very helpful way for beginner programmers to improve their programming skills and learn new things. Sharing your learning or work with others will help you improve and correct the mistakes that you will be doing in the code.

Here are some ideas for sharing what you do:

  • Start your own blog
  • Join a community on Discord
  • Ask for feedback on StackOverflow
  •  Tweet your progress every day with the #100DaysOfCode hashtag

The power of Reading Books.

How to read books faster
The power of Reading books

Reading a book is like a journey that is directed by the author. In non-fiction books, we do sort of reading where we are reading things from inside another person’s head. Here we go outside our brain and explore different possibilities and perspectives that our mind failed to think or either we never tried that thing. Some figures show the vocabulary of the average person is limited to something around 20000 words. While on the other hand, books reader s or active listeners have more than 35000. So the reading increases vocabulary at certain levels and makes you calmer. The imagination we do while reading books bring us outside our head and tends to use parts of that brain that we usually don’t use. There are some scientific researches talks about the same.

What is the problem with reading?

The difference between speaking and reading because they are very different speaking is something that is in our genes. We already have those pathways for speaking. If we put a baby around people, who are talking, They’ll start to do it too because It’s natural, but reading is not. You could put a baby in a library surrounded by books from the day it’s born. It would never start spontaneously reading. He has to learn. This is the reason speech has been with us for at least 100,000 years, quite long time for natural selection to get it into our brains.

But reading probably only started about 5,000 years ago and until about a hundred years ago. Most people didn’t do it at all. So, rather than using those pre-wired intuitive if You like pathways. Every time a person who learns to read has to do it afresh. That means making new pathways, individual pathways the sort that individuals do make all through their life. Every time they have an experience, or they do memory or a new habit. They create individual pathways on top of the basic blueprint. And that’s what we have to do when we read quickly. when you look at a brain that’s speaking. It is straight forward information.

Our reading phase begins at school. There is a reward system for reading books either in the form of marks or appreciation from the teachers. This habit gets drilled, and every time mind requires some external reward to release enough dopamine. While comparing to other sources of being pleasure are pretty comfortable with visuals in them. Everyone prefers watching things instead of reading. Let’s say, there’s news about the Republic Day Celebration People watch it on TV or mobile than reading the Report of the Program. The video format of everything has changed the way of reading. Biographies, novels, and historical events get filmed, So most of the reading audience moves towards the visual part for living that story.

But research shows that the memory of any book stays more in the brain than a movie. Usually, movies are 2-2.5 hours long, while a book is 10-15 hours to read, and it does not take any extra effort to watch a movie. So, the brain always chooses the lazy part, we procrastinate, and this becomes a ritual.

How daily reading can impact your life

There is a famous quote by American Entrepreneur Jim Rohn that

You’re the average of the five people you spend most of your time with.”

There is a lot of truth to this. Chances are the five people closest to you all like to go out partying. They do not take care of themselves. You probably don’t either. If they all enjoy playing video games all night and have terrible grades, your grades are probably not something you’re proud of too. But if your friends love hitting the gym daily. And they watch what they eat. There’s a high chance you’re healthier than the average.

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
Thought by Helen Keller

There are exceptions, But the consensus is that there’s some truth to this idea. We as human beings learn from our surroundings. We are sophisticated animals that excel at copying each other. This is large, where things like culture, slang, accents, and even traditions come from people learn each other’s habits and adopt each other’s mindsets after spending large amounts of time with each other.

It can get better social life from being handicapped to someone who can understand the value of relationships and can go further in your imaginations to figure out things than an average person.

There is a perfect example by a deaf and blind author, Helen Keller. She faced a very big medical issue at the age of 19 months and, the hearing and listening doors get closed for her. Some of you have heard about the story of Helen Keller. A girl without the ability to listen and hearing change the world for her and give us an example that everything is possible until you are willing for it. In her initial days, she has learned to read from special schooling and degrees at Universities. With her Teacher Anne Sullivan she took lectures on many big platforms. She opens her imaginations with books and started understanding human behaviour without seeing and listening to them.

How book helps your physical health

There is a lot of truth about the mental health of reading books. Reading can not only affect mental health but physical too. It helps in getting a better night’s sleep. Doctors suggest reading for a better sleep routine. A physical book before bedtime can heal asleep trouble and can set a good morning mood.

Researches show that – people who read fiction stories explore the life of characters internally. Their ability to understand emotions and feelings is better than an average person. Psychologist call this skill the Theory of Mind  This enhances the social relationship and public representation. A single reading session can’t spark this feeling. It requires extended fiction reading to develop a theory of mind. Daily reading eventually reduces stress and depression. Readers choose books to get rid of current troubles in life and live fictional characters, while people choose alcohol to get free from the stress. This all combines to make you live longer and calmer.

How to make reading Habit?

How you can read 6720 pages per to get?

Initially, Reading a book can irritate, eventually left with 10-20 pages per week. So, How people complete books in one go or 2-3 books per week? Here, my suggestion to read at least one book a week. You can set a reminder to read five pages in the morning, five before lunch, five at evening snack, and five before bedtime. This sums up a total of 20 pages a day. And 140 pages per week.

What is Investing? Types, Where you should invest.

What is investing?
What is investing? How to earn without any loss.

The investing sector started booming after some web series and social trends introduced about the Stock market industry, profits, and past scams in India. Every one out of three wants to invest but don’t know much about it. So let’s talk about investing and how you can start investing side by side with your career. So, the first question that comes to mind is what is Investing?

Investing

Investing is putting your money away for a long time to get a profit. Banking, Real State, Mutual Funds are regions where people put their money based on risks and profits. Some of these give you a fixed interest(less risky), while others vary according to the market (riskier)

Why investing is Important ?

Consider you earn 50K per year and your spending is 30K then you’ll save 20K per month. And inflation and income are increasing at a rate of 8% and 10% respectively. then in 25 years, your total saving will be 1.7 Crores sounds amazing. But it will only take around 7-8 years to spend all of these if inflation is also increasing. But on the other hand, If you invest your savings and get 12%/year, Then in 25 years your saving will be 4.76 crores.

Interest Rate of different Schemes
Interest Rate of different schemes

Only 4% of Indians invest while 50% of the USA.

Types of Investing

Debt – The Debt market is giving a loan to a company or a government scheme at a fixed rate of interest in intervals. The debt market has bonds like the Equity market has stock. Usually, there is no risk, but if the company(it happens when the company is running at a loss and have no money to pay back the loan in time) fails to pay the interest. When that happens, A bondholder can sell any asset left with the company to recover their money before the owners claim anything.

Equity-  The Equity simply owning a part of the company. The return is dependent on the company’s profit and loss. Whatever the profit and loss the company will make, it will get divided among all the shareholders. An Equity Mutual fund owns many company’s shares. Equity is riskier as compared to Debt because it depends on the company’s profit and loss. But the return is high in Equity.

Government Schemes –  This is the safest way to invest and earn without any risks. Basically, We kind of invest in the Government, and they use that money to improve the infrastructure of the country and new schemes to help people. The Government schemes give a fixed amount of interest for a long time. There is no chance of a fault in returning the money. The Government offers a tax deduction on investments and increases the rate of return.

There is a lot of other ways of investing without doing anything. You can put your savings in FDs, ULIP, and portfolio managers to get a specific amount of interest. Schemes have a low return with zero risks.

Risks Distribution

The biggest mistake people make is they never calculate risk before investing. There are three types of Investment options available based on the risks associated with them:

  1. High-Risk Investment
  2. Low-Risk Investment
  3. Safe Investment

Risk is the simple possibility of losing money. It is essential to calculate the risk based on the expense of that money in the future. Most people initially invest without calculating the risk, then after facing heavy loss, they withdraw from the market and compare it with gambling. Now let’s make a risk portfolio that makes you comfortable after retirement. That helps you in a medical emergency and protect you from losing all the money savings during the market crash.

Let’s take an example to understand the importance of risk distribution. Let’s consider Shyam has an amount to invest. He has some big expenses, like his sister’s wedding and his father’s medical surgery.

lined up for the next two years. He also wants to make sure that he has enough to handle any big medical or family emergency. So These are some of the necessary events that he can not skip. This event means he has to invest an amount to something safe that grows at least at the rate of inflation. Next, Shyam thinks about other expenses, for his kid’s education, opening his shop, and his dream to travel across India. These images are not specific in amount and not coming for the next 5-6 years. So, here Shayam can take a risk. If he faces any loss, he can compromise with 30-40% of investments. This way, he can choose 40% in high-risk investments, 40% in less risky investments, and 20% in a safe investment. Finally, Shyam can invest in his better retirement life and old-age. After all, He should end with more than he has contributed and a proper risk portfolio. Here is a chart of investment divisions he can do based on the expenses.

Where should you invest?

This is a very common question. People ask for tips on where he should invest. In this era, inflation is increasing at a high rate, so investing becomes necessary for comfort in the future.

If you are a beginner and do not know about the stock market, then you should go for the mutual fund. In mutual funds, you invest the money along with a stock market expert. Basically, he uses his calculations and knowledge to choose the stocks. He charges a small brokerage commission, but there are companies and apps are available with a 0% brokerage charge.

For bigger investments, you can follow these steps:

  1. Find your net worth according to the current values of the assets. 
  2. Decide the target distribution 
    1. Based on risks, 80-20 debt-equity or 20-80.
    2. Use SIP for large amounts.
  3. Choose schemes to invest in
    1. Always choose tax saving schemes(NSC, NPS, ELSS).
    2. Keep a total 3-5 schemes in every category.
  4. Invest, Record, and Remind
    1. Use online methods: Coin, MF website to invest.
    2. Always record what you have invested in a central place.
