Introduction

Computers are an integrated part of our lives – at home, work, and on the go for just about everything. They serve as digital tools keeping us informed and connected, they move industry and innovation and create opportunities and imaginations.

To say computers have impacted us in a positive way is an understatement. However, for every good thing, a dozen bad things evolve from it. It’s built into the hardware, designed in the software, and created from our fingertips.

Every day is an opportunity for one of those bad things to occur. It’s not if, but when.

Hardware

A computer is a computer is a computer. It does not matter if it runs Apple, Windows, or something else. They can be big or small and have all kinds of crazy shapes. For the most part, they all have the same types of components inside (processor, memory, hard drive). Each computer component is built and assembled from different places around the world at an economical price. With every improvement, new ones replace the old ones resulting inĀ countless possible combinations to make a computer. Of these, only a handful work perfectly together. That said, not all computers are the same – as it depends on the quality and engineering of what is inside.

Software

Computers require software to function. Software is a set of instructions for what to do when to do it, and how. These instructions, or code, are written by programmers. Programmers come from all kinds of backgrounds, influences, and perspectives.

Like authors of books, programmers write instructions according to the interpreted perspective. As with books, they can contain syntax issues, misdirection, and misconstrued statements.

The result stimulates new future versions and additions of computer software, patches, and security updates to address found bugs and errors hackers take advantage of.

Data

Computer data is information created by users. Data is everything that makes up or created on the computer (documents, pictures, email, favorite). These include everything a user does (searches, websites visited, forms filled out, times, dates). Data tells a story.

Collected personal data provides opportunities to track people or objects. Enough data collected can create an overview of individuals’ habits and personality traits. Once discovered, people are manipulated and taken advantage of.

Stealing, selling, and influencing people using personal data is big business, tens of billions of dollars. Cybercriminals, hackers, governments, and corporations are taking advantage of this industry.
