Task 4, Option 3

  1. Share your thoughts on what you imagine to be the future of cyber attacks. Consider the types of information we store and share online today. What information will hackers try to get in the future? What approaches do you think they will use?

In future, due to the COVID crisis, lots of people are turning to online shopping to avoid contact with people. When online shopping, a number of personal details are entered when making purchases. I believe that hackers will target bank details in order to hack people’s bank accounts. I think they will do this by sending ‘phishing’ emails from the ‘sites’ where purchases have been made. By accessing these emails, hackers could ask for bank details to be restated in this area. From this, hackers can use this information to access bank accounts where money can be stolen.
