Unit 4

Future of cyber attacks:

The future of cyber attacks is more about the leaking and theft of small peices of information. These include: name, DOB, interests, location and search history.

This is something which is already being collected by online sites, but it is also something that isn’t a focus. People having this information isn’t something that leads into identity theft, but manipulation through advertising.

To attack this issue, we need to focus on building young peoples understanding of how advertising and posts are targeted based on their interests. This means that they need to understand how their beliefs are reinforced by what they read online and how think critically about what they see.
