I am a digital object exposed to the world
My family life, my friends, my job, my colleagues, my company, everything in my life is embodied in digital data, information which are to be shared, but not with anyone!
Everything I am or do, everywhere I go, everyone I meet, everything I share generates digital data which are stored on my smartphone, in my apps, my computers, my many accounts and subscriptions to services and tools.
I am the center of all these actions, and therefore I am responsible for my own protection, although I cannot visualize the volume of my data or how vulnerable they are, how they can be used against me, a relative, a colleague, the company or organization I work for, my biker’s or my scrabble club!
We are all targeted by cyberattacks
The distance situation created by COVID-19 has seen the number of computer hacking cases soar. Every day we hear that another large company, or a public service like the Health system, has been attacked and our confidential data has been posted in the world’s public domain, our working tools, our photos, our important documents have been destroyed, our money accounts misappropriated.
It is not for want of our using secured services. There is an invisible war being waged, and in this war only well-trained computer technicians know how to fight. However, we can do something to help them, and thus to protect ourselves.
Let's become stakeholders and let's act!
