Cyber security. File photo dated 06/08/13 of a person using a laptop, as the chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee has called for improved cyber security after it was revealed there have been 90 million suspicious events on the National Crime Agency website since October 2013. Issue date: Saturday December 19, 2015. There were also 178 significant DDoS (distributed denial-of-service attacks) on the website over that period, which means an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users.
