There has been a lot in the news lately about privacy and hacking. Everyone has read about whether Apple should help the FBI gain access to a locked iPhone that was used by terrorists. We also learned about the ransomware attack on a Hollywood hospital that paid $17000 to get back control of their computer systems.
Regardless of whether Apple provides a backdoor to gain access to an iPhone or if another company’s network gets hacked, one thing is certain: technology is evolving at a rapid pace, and with it so do the tactics by cyber criminals. Ransom attacks are still relatively uncommon, whereas cyberattacks are more prevalent, as the desire is to tap into personal information for use in fraud. No solution is perfect, and we all need to be informed and vigilant as we appreciate the benefits of amazing technological transformations in our time.
