Re: Great article, it covers some great points
Unfortunately hackers are everywhere they easily hack accounts, even game account. I heard a lot of bad news about some websties, that hack gamers account and they also take gamers money.

for example some website claims to sell stuffs for gamers and they take the gamer's id and password then they sell the account to another people. I work for a good website about fifa coins but I see another doing such a bad thing to accounts.

Great article, it covers some great points
Bringing security skills and thinking into societal systems could even help balance the scales a bit. "What I like about this is that it's a way to bring diverse voices in," Schneier says.

I think he brought up good points but the problem is that individuals of power are not willing to listen to people of color or individuals who have a difference of opinion. Racist tendies are still embedded in the very fabric of our society, so it is hard for someone who is vibrant, intelligent and willing to do whatever get an opportunity to provide valuable insight into areas of technology, this could prove to be beneficial to the entire organization.


 

In addition, I do think the answers are there, but there is something else in the way - fear. Individuals who have been doing something for a period of time, they have a problem with change, they don't want to see something that is innovative and possible game-changing to get in their way (greed and unwillingness to grow).


 

So we have to address the psychological and philosophical elements of our society before making advancements because we are the ones who are holding each other back, technology has not been the problem, it is the other outside factors that cause individuals to revert back to their old way of doing things.
