The overly connected world
Updated: Jun 22, 2018
Are we over connected through #information and #technology? We always wanted a smaller, flat and unified world where each country could be part of a large community.
And yes, it has a lot of advantages. But in doing so, have we exposed our personal information beyond what we bargained? (#privacy concerns)
While #Cambridge gate (more here) is a reason for us to know the evils of overexposure, it is not new, isn't?
We store millions of #data in the form of our personalised information using software products (mobile app or websites). But what if this information gets shared with a government agency or an institute or even with an individual, it can lead to a significant breach in our #private space.
While every software product promises that they will not cross-sell or share this information, but what if the data is shared intentionally or unintentionally?
We end up storing most sensitive and analytically precious information, which when accessed by others without our #permission is a significant #threat.
