Doom and Gloom: The Real and Present Danger of Cyber-Terrorism
In the past 25 years, our lives have been transformed.
Not only have we come to rely on selfie-sticks, Facebook posts, and twitter feeds, we have come to rely almost completely upon technology for our everyday lives.
From grocery stores (automatic ordering of foods by smart technology) to electronic transfer of funds (ATMs, smartphone apps, paypal), to smart meters monitoring our electricity, our complex web of gadgets and gizmos are extremely vulnerable.
Tonight, watch PBS at 9pm eastern time (Wednesday, October 14, 2015).
What you will see will be uncomfortable.
We cannot deny or reliance upon sophisticated technology for EVERYTHING.
When the attack comes (not ‘if’), will you be prepared?
Watch the episode, come back here, read some articles, do some research.
Now is the time to get ready, not later!
