Technology infrastructures hacking

Posted in: Archives, Top Headlines, Business

The infrastructures of today are increasingly being challenged with the ability of hackers to alter or entirely stop the product from performing its function.  Wind turbines that use wind for transfer of power to homes and multi-electrical uses are vulnerable.  Increasing the number of wind power throughout the world has caused concern to the technicians.  The question continues on how to keep ahead of the hacker so that the grid doesn’t get locked down.


Also, as the future of automotive cars becomes increasingly prevalent for the public to operate hackers are causing continual challenges for the industry to block the invasion in order protect the public.  Elimination of the vulnerability as the world becomes more autonomous is keeping many technical people up at night on how do they keep ahead of the potential attack. The public needs to be aware of what to do if the “what if” occurs.
