Good evening. Cyber crime is Premier League

:00:00.:00:09.

Good evening. Cyber crime is estimated to cost businesses in the

:00:10.:00:13.

UK ?1,000 a second and is now ranked as one of the top four threats to

:00:14.:00:18.

national security. In Coventry, police and computer experts have

:00:19.:00:21.

gathered to discuss ways of tackling the problem described as "evolving

:00:22.:00:26.

at a rapid pace". It comes after eBay became the latest high`profile

:00:27.:00:30.

victim of hackers. Audrey Dias reports. Wendy Moore knows all too

:00:31.:00:36.

well about cyber crime. Her company has been a victim of identity theft

:00:37.:00:46.

on several occasions. we buckled in terms of fraud, invoice fraud when

:00:47.:00:51.

someone steals identity of our company and tries to place orders on

:00:52.:00:54.

our behalf. Here at Coventry University she joined others

:00:55.:00:56.

affected by cybercrime to find out how they can make their systems

:00:57.:00:59.

safe.With eBay the latest victim, it's clearly a problem and is on the

:01:00.:01:07.

rise. Thereof 30 million people today that will use the Internet in

:01:08.:01:12.

the UK and are 10 billion processors that you can perform within the

:01:13.:01:17.

Internet. Obviously, criminals are exploiting opportunities within

:01:18.:01:21.

that. One of the biggest problems with cyber security is to find the

:01:22.:01:23.

right people to make online systems safe. That's where 19`year`old Dale

:01:24.:01:26.

comes in. He's what's described as an "ethical hacker". I am more

:01:27.:01:34.

focused on the ethics. So to know how to defend against hackers, you

:01:35.:01:37.

need to know what they do. Companies are employing people like Dale to

:01:38.:01:40.

spot vulnerabilities in their online systems. He showed me just how easy

:01:41.:01:47.

it can be for hackers. I'm going to provide a minnow News Coventry as a

:01:48.:01:51.

password. I'm going to login, here you see it. It is that simple.

:01:52.:01:55.

Cybercrime is growing fast. And with more of us getting online, learning

:01:56.:01:59.

how to protect ourselves is becoming increasingly important. The family

:02:00.:02:06.

of a man who was murdered in Wolverhampton in March have appealed

:02:07.:02:09.

for information to help catch his killer. 54`year`old Stephen Philips

:02:10.:02:12.

was found with head injuries at his home on Dudley Road in Blakenhall.

:02:13.:02:17.

Police believe he was attacked and robbed before walking home where he

:02:18.:02:23.

collapsed and died. Aston Villa have sacked assistant manager Ian

:02:24.:02:25.

Culverhouse following an internal investigation. The 49`year`old was

:02:26.:02:28.

suspended in April, although the club didn't make their reasons

:02:29.:02:33.

public. Head of Football Operations Gary Karsa has also been sacked

:02:34.:02:37.

after he too was suspended last month pending an investigation.

:02:38.:02:43.

Despite heavy rain, thousands of people braved the elements for

:02:44.:02:45.

Birmingham's annual Pride festival. It's become the biggest event of its

:02:46.:02:49.

kind in this country. We sent our reporter Karen Kenworthy to soak up

:02:50.:02:55.

the atmosphere. Umbrellas and ponchos were the must`have

:02:56.:02:57.

accessories at Birmingham's 18th annual Pride festival. But, with

:02:58.:03:02.

around 20, 000 tickets already sold for the event, partygoers weren't

:03:03.:03:04.

about to let rain spoil their parade. Weekdays know how to party,

:03:05.:03:13.

whether they wet or dry we should have a good time! I bought some

:03:14.:03:19.

special wellies. It is going to be a great stay! Organisers say Pride

:03:20.:03:22.

brings in around ?20 million to the city's economy and that the bad

:03:23.:03:28.

weather won't keep people away. we have a huge main stage, a Dan Sparky

:03:29.:03:34.

and a cabaret marquee. They are big enclosed areas. So rain or shine, it

:03:35.:03:42.

will be an amazing weekend. The theme of this year's festival is

:03:43.:03:45.

Equality and Freedom across the World. We are here to show

:03:46.:03:50.

solidarity with LGBT poll who are at risk of imprisonment or even murder.

:03:51.:03:54.

And equality is a theme close to the hearts of the crowd enjoying the

:03:55.:04:00.

parade. It is still unacceptable in some places, so it is a thing to get

:04:01.:04:07.

across. If you're happy, you happy. You can go out just in what you want

:04:08.:04:11.

here, I can! Well, the rain's still coming down but it's not affecting

:04:12.:04:14.

the party spirit here at Birmingham Pride. Celebrations will continue

:04:15.:04:17.

all weekend with events going on until midnight on Sunday. Thunder

:04:18.:04:24.

despite the weather. Now after monsoon`like conditions today, let's

:04:25.:04:27.

get the forecast for the rest of Bank Holiday from Mel Coles. After

:04:28.:04:32.

the rain, come the showers. Some showers will be heavy tonight and

:04:33.:04:37.

potentially thundery. They are less intact `` intent of the night goes

:04:38.:04:42.

on and below is around nine or 10 Celsius. So a cloudy, shower it

:04:43.:04:46.

starts to Sunday on some of the showers could once again be heavy

:04:47.:04:49.

and thundery. More in the way brightness in the way of tomorrow

:04:50.:04:52.

afternoon. Temperatures will fare better with highs of around 17

:04:53.:04:57.

degrees. Still some uncertainty about Bank Holiday Monday, we should

:04:58.:04:59.

get to see some dry, bright spells, but there is the potential for

:05:00.:05:05.

showers. That is all from us, no tomorrow night just before 7pm.

:05:06.:05:17.

The heavens opened for some of us today. As
