 Neutralize attackers once they’re inside networks rather than fixating on trying to keep them out. In South Korea, where government agencies and businesses have come under repeated attacks from hackers traced by Seoul to North Korea, several security firms have jumped on the growing global trend to develop systems that analyze activity to detect potentially suspicious patterns rather than scanning for known threats. Kwon said it has been tough to convince executives that it’s more effective to catch bad guys after they’ve infiltrated a network instead of trying to keep them out, which he believes is impossible anyway. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Ever since the Internet blossomed in the 1990s, cybersecurity was built on the idea that computers could be protected by a digital quarantine. Now, as hackers routinely overwhelm such defenses, experts say cybersecurity is beyond due an overhaul.

(Reuters) - A California educator who resigned after a woman accused her in a YouTube video of abusing her when she was a 12-year-old student was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday, prosecutors said. The former teacher, Andrea Michelle Cardosa, pleaded guilty last month to three counts of lewd acts with a child in a deal that spared her from a possible life sentence, said Riverside County District Attorney's Office spokesman John Hall. The case grew out of a video posted on YouTube last February in which a woman confronted Cardosa, accused her of abuse, and said she had ruined her childhood. In the video, Cardosa expresses regret and says the abuse was not anything she had intended.
