Dit jaar is de Week van de Veiligheid!

Zologic en CyberPrevent steunen de Week van de veiligheid want cybercrime komt veel meer voor dan je denkt!

Je hoopt dat je er nooit mee te maken krijgt, een diefstal, spookfacturen of erger nog: een cyberoverval . Als het je dan toch overkomt, wil je weten hoe jij en je personeel moeten handelen.

Elke vorm van cybercrime heeft specifieke aandachtspunten. Maar met een aantal algemene stelregels kunt u de kans om slachtoffer te worden van cybercrime al flink verkleinen.

Hoe kan ik voorkomen dat ik slachtoffer word van cybercrime?

  • Wees terughoudend met het geven van persoonsgegevens op het internet. Denk daarbij niet alleen aan uw eigen gegevens, maar ook aan die van klanten, leveranciers en personeel. Eenmaal op internet geplaatste gegevens blijven ‘voor eeuwig’ beschikbaar.
  • Geef nooit uw inlog- of pincode af, ook niet als het verzoek afkomstig lijkt van een betrouwbare afzender.
  • Verwijder verdachte e-mails direct en klik nooit op een link die in de e-mail staat.
  • Zorg voor een goed werkende firewall. Een CyberPrevent houdt al het inkomende en uitgaande dataverkeer in de gaten en beoordeelt of iets doorgelaten kan worden of niet.
  • Houd uw software up-to-date. Sommige softwarefouten worden laat ontdekt en vormen een serieus beveiligingsrisico. Softwareleveranciers brengen regelmatig updates van hun software uit, zorg dat u deze updates automatisch installeert.
  • Ga niet onbezonnen in op aanbiedingen per mail maar verifieer altijd eerst of u met een bonafide instelling te maken heeft.Controleer het webadres, voordat u een betaling doet. Als een site nieuw voor u is, check dan altijd bij wie u inkoopt. Of het nu om een bank, een leverancier of een klant gaat.
    Stelt u zichzelf de volgende vragen:
    – Is het een bestaand bedrijf?
    – Staan alle contactgegevens vermeld?
    – Staan er privacy-, leverings- en betaalvoorwaarden op de site?
  • Blijf alert bij online betalingen. Een veilige betaalomgeving herkent u aan:
    – een beveiligde webpagina begint altijd met https, waarbij de ‘s’ staat voor secure
    – een hangslotje. Hier kunt u op klikken om de details van de site te controleren.
  • Zorg voor een back-up van uw documenten.
  • Doe altijd aangifte bij de politie wanneer je bedrijf te maken heeft gehad met cybercrime.
  • Bespreek bovenstaande zaken ook met uw personeel.

Speciaal om jou hierover te informeren, is er de Week van de Veiligheid. Ben jij voorbereid op criminaliteit? Bekijk de veiligheidsmiddelen die je helpen om je business veiliger te maken .  Download dan de poster en hang deze op in de kantine van jouw onderneming.

Laser Cookies: a YouTube collaboration

Lasers! Cookies! Raspberry Pi! We’re buzzing with excitement about sharing our latest YouTube video with you, which comes directly from the kitchen of maker Estefannie Explains It All!

Laser-guarded cookies feat. Estefannie Explains It All

Estefannie Explains It All + Raspberry Pi

When Estefannie visited Pi Towers earlier this year, we introduced her to the Raspberry Pi Digital Curriculum and the free resources on our website. We’d already chatted to her via email about the idea of creating a collab video for the Raspberry Pi channel. Once she’d met members of the Raspberry Pi Foundation team and listened to them wax lyrical about the work we do here, she was even more keen to collaborate with us.

Estefannie on Twitter

Ahhhh!!! I still can’t believe I got to hang out and make stuff at the @Raspberry_Pi towers!! Thank you thank you!!

Estefannie returned to the US filled with inspiration for a video for our channel, and we’re so pleased with how awesome her final result is. The video is a super addition to our Raspberry Pi YouTube channel, it shows what our resources can help you achieve, and it’s great fun. You might also have noticed that the project fits in perfectly with this season’s Pioneers challenge. A win all around!

So yeah, we’re really chuffed about this video, and we hope you all like it too!

Estefannie’s Laser Cookies guide

For those of you wanting to try your hand at building your own Cookie Jar Laser Surveillance Security System, Estefannie has provided a complete guide to talk you through it. Here she goes:

First off, you’ll need:

  • 10 lasers
  • 10 photoresistors
  • 10 capacitors
  • 1 Raspberry Pi Zero W
  • 1 buzzer
  • 1 Raspberry Pi Camera Module
  • 12 ft PVC pipes + 4 corners
  • 1 acrylic panel
  • 1 battery pack
  • 8 zip ties
  • tons of cookies

I used the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Laser trip wire and the Tweeting Babbage resources to get one laser working and to set up the camera and Twitter API. This took me less than an hour, and it was easy, breezy, beautiful, Raspberry Pi.

I soldered ten lasers in parallel and connected ten photoresistors to their own GPIO pins. I didn’t wire them up in series because of sensitivity reasons and to make debugging easier.

Building the frame took a few tries: I actually started with a wood frame, then tried a clear case, and finally realized the best and cleaner solution would be pipes. All the wires go inside the pipes and come out in a small window on the top to wire up to the Zero W.

Using pipes also made the build cheaper, since they were about $3 for 12 ft. Wiring inside the pipes was tricky, and to finish the circuit, I soldered some of the wires after they were already in the pipes.

I tried glueing the lasers to the frame, but the lasers melted the glue and became decalibrated. Next I tried tape, and then I found picture mounting putty. The putty worked perfectly — it was easy to mold a putty base for the lasers and to calibrate and re-calibrate them if needed. Moreover, the lasers stayed in place no matter how hot they got.

Estefannie Explains It All Raspberry Pi Cookie Jar

Although the lasers were not very strong, I still strained my eyes after long hours of calibrating — hence the sunglasses! Working indoors with lasers, sunglasses, and code was weird. But now I can say I’ve done that…in my kitchen.

Using all the knowledge I have shared, this project should take a couple of hours. The code you need lives on my GitHub!

Astro Pi upgrades on the International Space Station

In 2015, The Raspberry Pi Foundation built two space-hardened Raspberry Pi units, or Astro Pis, to run student code on board the International Space Station (ISS).

Astro Pi upgrades

Each school year we run an Astro Pi challenge to find the next generation of space scientists to program them. After the students have their code run in space, any output files are downloaded to ground and returned to them for analysis.

That download process was originally accomplished by an astronaut shutting down the Astro Pi, moving its micro SD card to a crew laptop and copying over the files manually. This used about 20 minutes of precious crew time.

Last year, we passed the qualification to allow the Astro Pi computers to be connected to the Local Area Network (LAN) on board the ISS. This allows us to remotely access them from the ground, upload student code and download the results without having to involve the crew.

This year, we have been preparing a new payload to upgrade the operational capabilities of the Astro Pi units.

The payload consists of the following items:

  • 2 × USB WiFi dongles
  • 5 × optical filters
  • 4 × 32GB micro SD cards

Before anyone asks – no, we’re not going outside into the vacuum of space!

USB WiFi dongle

Currently both Astro Pi units are located in the European Columbus module. They’re even visible on Google Street View (pan down and right)! You can see that we’ve created a bit of a bird’s nest of wires behind them.

The D-Link DWA-171

The decision to add WiFi capability is partly to clean up the cabling situation, but mainly so that the Astro Pi units can be deployed in ISS locations other than the Columbus module, where we won’t have access to an Ethernet switch.

The Raspberry Pi used in the Astro Pi flight units is the B+ (released in 2014), which does not have any built in wireless connectivity, so we need to use a USB dongle. This particular D-Link dongle was recommended by the European Space Agency (ESA) because a number of other payloads are already using it.

Plans have been made for one of the Astro Pi units to be deployed on an Earth-facing window, to allow Earth-observation student experiments. This is where WiFi connectivity will be required to maintain LAN access for ground control.

Optical filters

With Earth-observation experiments in mind, we are also sending some flexible film optical filters. These are made from the same material as the blue square which is shipped with the Pi NoIR camera module, as noted in this post from when the product was launched. You can find the data sheet here.

To permit the filter to be easily attached to the Astro Pi unit, the film is laser-cut to friction-fit onto the 12 inner heatsink pins on the base, so that the camera aperture is covered.

The laser-cutting work was done right here in Cambridge at Makespace by our own Alex Bate, and local artist Diana Probst.

32GB micro SD cards

A consequence of running Earth observation experiments is a dramatic increase in the amount of disk space needed. To avoid a high frequency of commanding windows to download imagery to ground, we’re also flying some larger 32GB micro SD cards to replace the current 8GB cards.

The Samsung Evo MB-MP32DA/EU

This particular type of micro SD card is X-ray proof, waterproof, and resistant to magnetism and heat. Operationally speaking there is no difference, other than the additional available disk space.

Astro Pi

The micro SD cards will be flown with a security-hardened version of Raspbian pre-installed.

Crew activities

We have several crew activities planned for when this payload arrives on the ISS. These include the installation of the upgrade items on both Astro Pi units; moving one of the units from Columbus to an earth-facing window (possibly in Node 2); and then moving it back a few weeks later.

Currently it is expected that these activities will be carried out by German ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst who launches to the ISS in November (and will also be the ISS commander for Expedition 57).

Payload launch

We are targeting a January 2018 launch date for the payload. The exact launch vehicle is yet to be determined, but it could be SpaceX CRS 14. We will update you closer to the time.


If you have any questions about this payload, how an item works, or why that specific model was chosen, please post them in the comments below, and we’ll try to answer them.

Cybersecurity – Tackling non-cash payment fraud

The fraud and counterfeiting of non-cash means of payment pose a serious threat to the EU’s security – they provide important income for organised crime and enable other criminal activities such as terrorism, drug trafficking and trafficking in human beings. In addition, non-cash payment fraud affects the trust of consumers
in the security of the digital single market, reduces economic online activity and causes important economic losses.
