I like Jonas Bjerg’s YouTube video of “How Abundance Will Change The World”
Elon Musk predicts 100 Gigafactories in the world(of which he will build 4)
Peter Diamandis and Elon were at the World Government Summit 2017.
Cost per Genome is going down and has gone down exponentially.
Quick review of video: ‘So robots will take over, the world will have abundance and people will lose meaning (having lost their jobs)’.
So what will happen to friction of all this? When have you known people to actively agree 100% with how technology has gone along? As usual there is no thought to security.
What about crime?
I know, I am in Cybersecurity field, and to me it is simple to see, when “some” people lose their jobs to robots, they may become hackers and either create new crime syndicates, or work for an already successful syndicate.
Maybe I want to make more money than from the Universal Basic Income that some are proposing once many of the drivers and doctors are out of a job. How will I make more money? by figuring out a way to get a piece of the cyber slice$ that is around “in abundance”
Then we have a Dark Reading post ‘Back to Basics’ Might be your best Security weapon
Here Lee Waskevich’ commentary points out what I have said for many blogposts: We must focus on the basics first then we can point out the more advanced issues.
So let’s train our employees to find the scams in our mailbox (email and mail) SCMagazine points out a survey that found 32% of Britons would become a money mule for criminals. The issue is that unemployed people talk themselves into many things, especially if they have no previous arrest records.
In this Blog we know that people do illegal things and companies and people must defend themselves appropriately. Even as technologies become increasingly complex with more robotics and electrification of everything. (I always wonder why we focus on Cybersecurity AFTER a breach has occurred).
Ok, that’s good, but what about the Crypto Currency craze? There will and are thefts here – Hot for Security has a story on how $400k was stolen in BlackWallet application using DNS, and as you can see right now 1/16/2018 13:30 the site is down.
