Technology over the past few decades is becoming more and more prevalent in society and we become more dependent, when it fails it wreaks havoc on our lives. The world is very dependent on tech and when it fails, even our homes are at risk, with our security systems and even our appliances relying on it. People’s homes aren’t the only ones at risk – businesses and companies are at high risk too with all of their online infrastructure.
But even with technology’s many advantages, including being better at our own things than we are, it still has flaws. These flaws can be buried deep and not be found for years but eventually they are found. And when others find those flaws and exploit them for their own gain, it can destroy our lives, business and world as we know it.
Hackers, when they breach our security systems, they can take our money, and can even take our faces with software that can mold faces onto other faces and use them against us to make false statements or steal personal information. So protecting against hackers should be a large chunk of the money we spend to protect ourselves and should be as important as having a lock on your front door. But most of the time, protecting around the clock is too expensive for most individuals and for most small companies that either don’t have the time to devote to watching for hackers or don’t have the money for it either.
