Do you use Google? Do you have a social network profile? Do you share photos by phone? Do you watch Netflix? Do you listen to Spotify? Then you are a “digital person”.
We talk to autonomous cars. They process data with a laser scanner, detection radars, video cameras, GPS navigation, and more. And they drive by themselves. Maybe you have not bought one yet but your current vehicle works with a key that emits signals to open and incorporates Bluetooth to link up with your phone.
You probably use WhatsApp in your work too, you have an email account, you surf the Internet, and everyone uploads and downloads files in the cloud, and you don’t always lock your computer.
The soul of the Internet
The Internet has democratized information in the service of society. Behind every digital success, there are people who were dreaming of a better world. But the Internet also hides cybercriminals, resulting in 12 criminal complaints per hour, in Spain alone.
The question is not why you “sail” the Internet “sea” without a lifeguard, but when will you be attacked? Protect your login information, review it periodically and hire cyber insurance. When you are attacked, it will protect you from phishing scams, identity and data thefts, negligence… and above all, damages you may cause to third parties.
