Technology and Security

Stop or be stopped!

We have probably ever heard: they stole my password (¡¡¡oh!!! God, I think my account was hacked) that sounds terrible, does not it?

It happens we do not get the appropriate information or just the companies which sell products or services cited the phrase “we are real and do not disguise information” it is the problem, in general, all of us should be aware how regrettable given money is and exchange for ” I was hacked, “it does not sound nice.

So far, companies tend to serve a number of products and services, but minimally inform us, putting ourselves in risk “obviously nobody wants to set their business on the ground” however as technology changes every day, we may find out also days of risks intrinsically focus to this phenomenon of internet safety.

We wondered if technology and safety are 100% real… it sounds a bit daunting, but we must be frank, technology is not 100% safe and neither are their security, why? the answer is related to the level of trust and designs an algorithm and its availability to establish a great performance (always hiding but no impossible to find) remember that hackers are ready to go’ in the day to steal and ensure access information and other data. It’s nothing new to mention how different companies (from small, medium to large) got an informative embezzlement, and this creates additional problems as they much loss of confidence, customers, international prestige, etc.

Apparently, large numbers of these companies around the world have been victims of hacking, since companies usually mention “we are by solving the problem and everything will be fine”, for sure in phrases like this “pretty governance” would be less harsh if from the beginning enterprises let us know technology issues in order to reduce or avoid scandal safe and how there exist potential risks of losing data, etc. In most of case, we have learned to adapt to the use of technologies, but we have failed to be honest about caring all users, even though technology market continues believing of customers with not discover systems and 100% confidence; certainly they catch the market under a fallacy, all is different if we are doing business and pointing out weaknesses.

To sample a button, most recently in an article published by The New York Times: Security Researchers Find a Way to Hack Cars, in this article the gravity of the situation explained to cope with the possible drop in sales of smart cars, smartphones, and insecurity, etc. we must not lie, Internet safety is a hot topic from the past, present and will continue in the future.

The so mentioned publication quotes verbatim:

“Their research is likely to be one of the first discoveries in a new chapter of vulnerabilities and attacks directed at the so-called Internet of Things (IoT), the billions of products, machinery and infrastructure expected to come online over the next five years. A report from Verizon found That 14 car manufacturers Accounted for 80 percent of the worldwide auto market, and each one had a connected car strategy “.

The authors of this publication are: Mr. Miller and Mr. Valasek who reported to Fiat Chrysler regarding this investigation.

Mr. Miller Said, was to hack something tangible that could MOST people understand. “I ‘ve been in security for more than 10 years, and I’ve worked on computers and phones. This time, I wanted to do something that my grandmother would understand”. If I tell her, ‘I can hack into your car,’ she understands what that means. This new discovery reveals that vulnerability to draw us still has a lack of 100% real time security.

Countries are heavily investing in IoT to leverage its “benefits”, for example; South Korea have a strong investment plan for the coming years in the development of this ubiquitous technology.

“South Korea to invest $5b by 2020 in IoT and smart cars”

“South Korea has announced plans to foster the growth of IoT and its smart car industry, and will invest a total of 5.6 trillion won by 2020, with 1 trillion won allocated for this year”.

For instance; imagine a world where we are sitting reading a book and “confident” that the sensors and the internet take us to our final destination, but suddenly there is a tremendous hacking, where would we go? probably not to our programmed computer or similar fate, but rather our families could receive bad news …

According to mapsofworld.com a physical Map of World thematics entitled how the tendency to rely on this technology in the automotive sector continues to increase from year to year, and it seems that will not stop, though still far from reality, then we have time to consider whether to continue our manual/ electric car to one dependent on the internet 100% of the time; I personally would decide to stay with the manual as I decide where to take it and not a machine will decide what to do. This is more belong a central point of truth matters of judgment.

To end, this post has been discussed security on the internet and two real examples in the automobile sector; so we can conclude that: you prefer to drive or be driven? comments with us!

  1. An fascinating discussion is value comment. I believe that it’s best to write extra on this matter, it won’t be a taboo topic however typically persons are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  2. “I think other web-site proprietors should take this site as an model, very clean and magnificent user friendly style and design, as well as the content. You’re an expert in this topic!”
