Unit 4 – Task 3

  1. Share your thoughts on what you imagine to be the future of cyberattacks. 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?

Technology is constantly changing becoming more advanced with greater security features and software. With the Covid pandemic though, many people are using the internet far more often to buy and send things online. We are spending more time on technology than ever before. With this in mind, I do not think that the current cyber-attacks will change all that much. In essence “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. I do think that a lot of these attacks will be aimed at children with the hope that children who do not understand or know any better will share their parent’s bank accounts or card information online. This can be done by using fake websites or hack tutorials that convince children that they do not have to pay money for a game as long as they download a special file. This is a very common one and it has been used on many children that I know.
