gmazurat April 20,2015 Ted talks are fantastic. This might be the exception. The speaker covered a lot of the same subjects covered in some of the previous videos. No harm in learning things through repetition. Cyber criminals are out there, they are just as smart as the white hats, and will continue to figure out how to exploit technology for criminal purposes. The speaker acknowledges now that we are becoming more tech saavy globally, there are still a lot of basic concepts that people do not do to protect themselves from criminals on the Internet. The final point worth mentioning, there is no international agreement on what cyber crime is and how it should be enforced across international borders....and the criminals know that and take full advantage of it.
Ahmedat April 23,2015 very interesting speech and very informative, i guess we need to show this video to our friends, families and colleagues. everybody should the know the amount of risk they get in to when they use the internet, the wireless network and USB devices.
kcn278at April 26,2015 One of the better videos by far. He mentions how 99% of the malware and cyberattacks work because people fail to do the very basic. Part of the reason why they fail to do the basics is because they think it would not happen to them. Since it has not happen to them, they do not worry about it. Until it happens, then it gets real for them. Either that or people simply just do not have security awareness for it.
mariawhit8at May 03,2015 That's crazy they have a website to test the strength and validity of their virus?? How can you trust emailing a criminal to see how to fix your hack? Is there really an ethic standard to this? This was truly entertaining.
