Each day we blindly throw ourselves into the digital ether, naively trusting that encryption, hardened servers, secured websites and databases, good cybersecurity practices, and good intentions from website owners and infrastructure vendors globally will keep us and our private information safe.
We see only calm waters and blue skies, not the icebergs lurking beneath the surface.
The online world is so easy to use that we often forget both how fragile it is and how dangerous.
We happily type in our credit card details on some website somewhere in the world without stopping to ask just how well coded that website is and whether they might have left a database exposed somewhere along the way.
Our doctors upload our medical records to “secure” websites run by third-party contractors that look like a third grader wrote them.
Our city governments store their records in software systems that were obsolete 15 years ago and haven’t had a security patch in 20.
All of this is hidden from the casual observer.
We just see a friendly website beckoning us inside, not the frightening security nightmare behind it.
Few of the world’s netizens understand basic digital security and so beyond the basics of looking for a little lock icon in the URL bar of their browser, are little aware of all the digital dangers awaiting them.
Even the programmer class that write those websites are all-too-often unfamiliar with even the most basic of security practices.
Making matters worse, Silicon Valley works tirelessly to retrain society at large that sharing is good.
Whether it’s a photograph of your breakfast or the address and security procedures of a top-secret SCIF, we are taught to just put it all out there for the world to see.
Privacy is for the past they tell us.
