Recent, events involving cyberhacking has shown that the new stage for warfare will be in cyberspace. The news is full of stories such as this where one nation launches a cyber attack on another nation’s system.
The United States and China are just one example (of course an exchange between the world’s two largest economies is going to garner the most attention). But how many other cyber attack exchanges occur between other countries? Russia? Iran? Japan? Israel? India? Pakistan?
The list can go on and on. The world wide web is truly the New Wild West.
Technology is constantly evolving which will lead to different types of cyber attacks and viruses. If there is one thing that Edward Snowden did bring to light is that nations are always looking for new ways to take out their competition.
Sadly, it is We, the People who are caught in the crossfire most of the time. But, that is topic for another time.
Just remember folks to practice safe cyber viewing and update your antivirus software regularly.
