The Risks Cyberattacks Now Pose to Human Life

Published on

Cyberattacks have evolved beyond data theft and financial fraud to pose a real risk to human life. 

From power grids to medical devices, many critical infrastructure systems are now connected to the internet, leaving them vulnerable to cyberattacks. Attackers could potentially shut down power grids, disrupt transportation systems, or manipulate medical equipment, causing widespread harm and even death. 

As society becomes increasingly reliant on technology, it is crucial that cybersecurity measures are prioritised to mitigate the risks that cyberattacks pose to human life.
