Well, they will save lives. So much fear of anything new here. Last time i checked the 'terrorists' were not computer hackers. They have gained some
video production value recently ill admit but only when being sponsored by other entities for some good ole fear based propoganda. And speaking of
self driving cars being hacked to kill you, for one, nobody here is important enough for that. Secondly, if your car has onstar, lowjack, well it
could already be hacked and remotely controlled to an extent.
Dont get me wrong, hacking is a danger. Mostly by people seeking nothing but stolen identities, etc ie for financial value though, on a public note at
least. Anything beyond that is likely state or corporation (state) sponsored.
That is why, ffs, more people need to be getting into the IT field. The world needs multiples more of the amount of people in cyber security and
dozens other tech services as it already has and those pursuing it as a career. Digital is the future whether anyone likes it or not. Study STEM those
in college! Lets get the ball rolling smoother here.
