After reading the article on data breach at Target and what NSA said about the Internet security I felt that Internet security is a critical issue. As the technology is getting more and more advanced and user friendly it is also becoming unsafe at the same time. The way hacker access the private information, it could be used to destroy the company and also to harm the consumers. It also does results in the business failure of the companies and a huge loss. The data breach at Target is a terrible thing that could happen with and organization. It affected their personal and financial information. It is not the first time that an incident of data breach took place. There are other companies also who became victim of data breach.
In my view I believe that Individuals or organizations do owe the responsibility to the public to report any digital security failures because letting the public aware about such failure issues might help the company or organization to improve the security of the software or any program that uses digital software. It is necessary to report any digital security failures because individuals and organizations would be able to address the issue faster and without any skepticism or doubt. It will be a great help or the company and also to the people who are attached to it in any way like consumers or customers.
I as a customer of any company definitely have the right to know that who has accessed or copied the information that I shared with the company. It might affect me or I might be suffer from frauds. If i know that what information of mine is leaked or shared I could safe myself from the theft. After knowing that Internet security is been breached in different ways I will be less likely to shop online. I will be more careful when ever I buy something online. At first I will choose not to shop online, but in today’s world it is a bit difficult to do that. I will recommend to use the site which are secure. To change my opinion about online shopping from less likely to more likely seems a bit difficult. It is only possible if a security system is introduced where I authorize my transaction verbally, by finger print or by a actual signature. In addition to this I am also sure that my account information is not shared or saved by the company.
