From my independent research into this area, I believe this to be true.
Enjoy, the moment as tomorrow is promised to no one.
Unfortunately this is all too real and its time for the government and or private contractors to make this priority number one in protecting our countries sovereignty.
As one of President Trump’s major priorities is building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, it will all be for naught if this issue doesn’t become our nations priority number one.
Remember the recent hack on the Marriott Hotel Chain (Source)
Five Hundred Million customers were effected.
This is far from new, it’s been happening for years, most of us have been completely unaware of it and the depth of destruction that lies in the hands of foreign hackers desiring to bring down the entire U.S.A.
Why hasn’t it happened yet?
To do so would bring down the economies of all the major powers in the world.
So goes the U.S. economy, so goes theirs.
Continue reading and you will see how future wars can be fought without using military’s of today as we know them.
I’ve included a Ted Talk below, from the author, Mr. Goodman for those who are auditory learners and may not know it.
Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flip side: our technology can be turned against us.
Hackers can activate baby monitors to spy on families, thieves are analyzing social media posts to plot home invasions, and stalkers are exploiting the GPS on smart phones to track their victims’ every move.
We all know today’s criminals can steal identities, drain online bank accounts, and wipe out computer servers, but that’s just the beginning.
To date, no computer has been created that could not be hacked – a sobering fact given our radical dependence on these machines for everything from our nation’s power grid to air traffic control to financial services.
Yet, as ubiquitous as technology seems today, just over the horizon is a tidal wave of scientific progress that will leave our heads spinning.
If today’s Internet is the size of a golf ball, tomorrow’s will be the size of the sun.
Welcome to the Internet of Things, a living, breathing, global information grid where every physical object will be online.
But with greater connections come greater risks. Implantable medical devices such as pacemakers can be hacked to deliver a lethal jolt of electricity and a car’s brakes can be disabled at high-speed from miles away.
Meanwhile, 3-D printers can produce AK-47s, bio-terrorists can download the recipe for Spanish flu, and cartels are using fleets of drones to ferry drugs across borders.
With explosive insights based upon a career in law enforcement and counter-terrorism, Marc Goodman takes readers on a vivid journey through the darkest recesses of the Internet.
Reading like science fiction, but based in science fact, Future Crimes explores how bad actors are primed to hijack the technologies of tomorrow, including robotics, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence.
These fields hold the power to create a world of unprecedented abundance and prosperity. But the technological bedrock upon which we are building our common future is deeply unstable and, like a house of cards, can come crashing down at any moment.
Future Crimes provides a mind-blowing glimpse into the dark side of technological innovation and the unintended consequences of our connected world.
Goodman offers a way out with clear steps we must take to survive the progress unfolding before us.
Provocative, thrilling, and ultimately empowering, Future Crimes will serve as an urgent call to action that shows how we can take back control over our own devices and harness technology’s tremendous power for the betterment of humanity – before it’s too late.
