The future of cyber security | FT

Around the world, cyber crime is on the rise. By 2050, smart cities and homes will be the norm. Your fridge will tell a drone to pick up fresh milk when you run out and lampposts will change the intensity of streetlights when your smartphone is nearby. In this hyper-connected world, the threat cyber-criminals pose will only grow. Read more at

    Privacy security is more important than use privacy as for security.

    I think this video is chronically misinformed. It is very easy to make these devices secure if you are not stupid and employ stupid people who can’t think logically. You just have to think the system through properly. For example, you be careful that you do not trust other people’s code. You take the time to read through it and check it.

    Unfortunately in our computer industry we have ignorant managers who manage on hype, not logic. They weigh up security based on how much promotion the product has and do not have any clear ideas of their own. You can tell all of this by reading the job ads. Any risk is your own fault. One thing to avoid is do not overcomplicate the system. Don’t use the proverbial sledgehammer to crack a nut. My IOT does not even use an operating system, because it does not need to. That means the operating system can’t screw it up because it is not there!

    reminds me of a cybersecurity inspired board game I just saw on Kickstarter. Think this is something important kids should learn as they are growing up in a digital world.

    Most of authentication will move to Bitcoin in future which is practically unhackable
