Survey Hacker LINK
Many survey respondents have also reported that this price has been increasing lately. Inflation is one possibility. Another is that demand for paid links has caused more site owners to raise their prices.
Guest Posting is the most popular link building tactic, according to 64.9% of the 755 link builders we surveyed. When we broke this down, 71.3% of link builders who pay for links said they use the tactic. Whereas only 46.4% of link builders who do not pay for links still use Guest Posting.
To stay ahead of a hacker, you need to think like one. In groundbreaking new research, SANS and Bishop Fox surveyed more than 300 ethical hackers to gain insight into how attackers think, the tools they use, their speed, specialization, and favorite targets.
For the study, 100 IT and security executives were surveyed to understand recent changes made to cybersecurity infrastructures, their ability to handle cyberattacks and the role played by politics. The majority of the respondents (73%) were from organizations with more than 10,000 employees.
The majority (71%) of respondents were located in the Americas, another 17% from Asia, and 13% from EMEA. Of these participants 49% influence the decision-making process while 39% run the process itself. The survey examined organizations from a variety of industries, such as telecommunications (25%), finance (22%), and government (9%).

A recent study on the cost of cybercrime to organizations delved into growing concerns about the gray hat hacker -- a security professional who participates in black hat activities. Researchers found that 12% of the security professionals surveyed have considered black hat activities, and 22% have been approached about taking part in them. In some cases, legitimate security professionals have shifted completely to the "dark side" and become black hat hackers.
Osterman Research Inc. surveyed 900 security professionals in five countries -- the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and Singapore -- during May and June of this year. The security professionals surveyed worked for organizations in a range of industries, including financial services/insurance, 10%; manufacturing, 10%; retail, 9%; technology, 9%; and healthcare, 9%. The perceived percentage of gray hat hackers increased with the size of the organization, from 2.8% of IT security professionals at small businesses to 4.2% for midsize companies and 5.7% at large entities. "Midsize organizations (500 to 999 employees) are getting squeezed the hardest, and this is where the skills shortage, and the allure of becoming a gray hat, may be greatest," according to researchers. Survey data indicated that midmarket companies faced roughly the same level of major security events in 2017 as larger enterprises, 0.9 and 1.0, but lacked the security infrastructure found at big organizations.
Unfortunately, the research showed that black hat activity among security professionals is not uncommon. According to the survey, 41% of security professionals either know or have known a legitimate security practitioner who is a gray hat hacker or who has participated in black hat activities. About half of the survey respondents in the United States (51%) admitted some awareness of a colleague who was a gray hat hacker, compared to 26% in Germany. The top reason for this shift: Black hats are perceived to earn more money than security professionals, according to 63% of those surveyed.
However, financial gain is not the only reason, the researchers noted. While 47% of survey respondents agreed that "it's easy to get into cybercrime without getting caught," half believed that gray hat hackers are drawn to black hat activities based on "the challenges that it offers." Moreover, 11% of organizations globally have hired a black hat hacker for consulting purposes.

Only 2 percent of the small-business owners surveyed in the CNBC/SurveyMonkey Small Business Survey said they view the threat of a cyberattack as the most critical issue they face. The survey, conducted in April, gathered the findings from more than 2,000 small-business owners across the country in a variety of industries.
A hacker's goal at a small business can vary. Retail-facing companies are often targeted for the personal and credit card information of customers. Many companies in all industries are hit with a malware attack that initially does nothing, but it can transform a company's systems into "zombie computers," which can be used unwittingly in a larger attack. Some hackers use security lapses in small businesses as backdoor entries into larger partner companies. And, more recently, hackers will hold data for ransom and force the business owner to pay to retrieve it.
The biggest security risks for small businesses can be born from boredom. Small-business owners who check their personal email or Facebook or favorite websites from their work machine put their company's data at extra risk. And with storage space costing less, companies that keep their data local (vs. with a cloud-based service) often have a lot more information for hackers to mine.
We almost excluded the Edison Arduino kit since the Intel Atom-based Edison itself is not an SBC, but a computer-on-module (COM) much like the Raspberry Pi Compute Module. However, we realized there has been wide adoption of the Edison when sold with the Arduino breakout, which makes it much like any other Linux hacker SBC.
All told, the x86 based boards did a bit better than last year. These also include the Atom-based MinnowBoard Max and Quark-based Galileo, as well as the AMD G-Series driven Gizmo 2. x86 SBCs get hacker love, too! Left to right: MinnowBoard Max, Galileo Gen 2, and Gizmo 2(see spec summaries of all 53 hacker SBCs)
Consumer demands for onboard WiFi and Bluetooth, combined with lower cost wireless chips, have helped make onboard wireless more prevalent this year. The networking category also reflects a growing demand for wired networking, which is fairly standard on commercial x86-based SBCs, but is far from a given on ARM hacker boards. The comments section associated with this question were full of calls for gigabit Ethernet, dual Ethernet ports, and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support.
The Open Community Survey project creates transparent reports supported by a direct collection of personal perspectives from LA residents to help The LA Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (empowerla.org) and the Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils (NCs) to understand how constituents are interacting with, and what they need from, their websites. Current project: NC website survey; Most NCs do not have access or resources to hire technical experts necessary to create a citywide survey so that they can use the data to create inclusive websites targeted towards the needs of their specific communities. Working with EmpowerLA and NCs, Hack for LA is providing the workforce and expertise to design and implement this survey that will give NCs a tool to understand the overall needs of their community -- beyond the people already involved in NCs.

Scammers earn huge by conducting fake surveys on YouTube and other social media platforms. These scammers trick users into taking up the survey by claiming to offer exciting prizes and target their personal informaiton. However, these scammers lack technical skills in order to protect their infrastructure.
Scammers on YouTube take advantage of this to trick users with their fake profiles. They add legitimacy to their profile by creating fake profile with username and avatar of popular YouTubers. These scammers also promise exciting prizes thereby tempting users to click on their survey links.
By collecting users personal information, these scammers can sell the collected information and make money. These scammers can even start another phishing campaign with the collected personal information. However, researchers noted that by running such fake survey campaigns, these scammers earn a huge amount.
