TED talk on everyday cybercrime

Posted on 2013/09/17


The following talk by James Lyne is an interesting wake-up call. It’s a video that technology enthusiasts could share with anyone even if they’re not familiar with computer science.
James executes, in real time, two practical examples of hacking, and also shows what data and statistics can be collected by scanning a room full of people with smartphones such as during a TED conference.
This is an age where we need to be careful about our public information and our immaterial possessions, like we have always needed to be careful about our health and the safety of our homes. This video gives a good explanation of why it is so.
