Director General of Israel’s National Cyber Directorate Yigal Unna posted a snapshot of what we are doing around the world in 60 seconds on the internet. There is a certain sadness to know that more people are swiping on Tinder than posting to Facebook or tweeting. Is it because technology is allowing us to become more transactional? There are more people absorbed by YouTube than searching on Google.
In any event there is a clear understanding that with so many online in any given minute, hackers and nefarious actors are working hard to breach defences. The more worrying aspect is less than 1% of people have cyber protection installed on their smartphones where most spend time accessing the data. So as we allow ourselves an invisible shield of emotional vulnerability protection on social media many of us are fish in a barrel unknowingly awaiting to be shot.
