Just flicking through the news when I came across an opinion article you can find below:
It’s a tongue in cheek, humorous discussion of the technical mishaps that have recently been occurring, such as the jeep hack and the Ashley Madison escapade. But it also raises an important questions:
- Are we rushing ahead to develop new tech that’s bigger and better, before we have managed to safeguard the tech that we already have and use on a regular basis?
- Should we as a society halt the inevitable march towards new tech and try and put time, resources and effort into solving existing problems in software coding and programming?
- Will hackers always be a threat to the technology we rely on, in other words, will code always be susceptible to hacking?
- Is it impossible to detect where the potential technological threats will come from?
- Can we really lay the blame on the “scrappiness of software development”?
I disagree with most parts of this article, but the questions are definitely worth reflecting on…
What do you guys think?
