Hacking is the new form of spying. If someone was stood outside your front door with a zoom lens taking pictures without your permission – you would be rather alarmed! Steps would be taken to stop them and prevent it from happening again.
People do not realise the impact of hacking – perhaps because one cannot see anyone doing any actual damage we do not perceive the threat to be real. Unfortunately, hackers are becoming rather sophisticated in their ‘spying’ activities. It is becoming even more important to be vigilant when choosing passwords and keeping them secure. Although annoying and frustrating to come up with ever increasing complex combinations of letters and numbers, it really is worth taking some time to think up something that means a lot to you – but not to anyone else.
