People are becoming more and more reliant on the Internet and smart devices. Everything is now, essentially, connected and a potential target for hackers. In a discussion on Fox News, Joe Loomis states that people are becoming obsessed with convenience and not paying attention to the security, or lack thereof, in their smart devices. Having the new smart phone or device is now more important to consumers than having a safe, secure one. Security is getting thrown to the back burner in the personal technologies world.
Everyone needs to be more aware of these cyber security issues and less into their up-to-date devices. Having the new smart device is nice, but when your safety and security are at stake, security should be priority number one.
