Nowadays security and privacy comes primarily from the human side of things. This is a big change. Until recently, online security and privacy were primarily technical (virus checkers, firewalls etc)
Most successful attacks are now through PEOPLE rather than technology.
Attacks on your online security and privacy come primarily through getting people to do things that then enable security and privacy to be compromised.
For example, a local financial professional was hacked through him opening what looked like a real phone bill. A week later he found his computer had been encrypted by ransomware.
Times have changed. Once, a virus checker or an Apple computer would keep you safe and private. Those days have gone. Now there are many different kinds of hacking, Apple computers get malware, and people's behaviour in the office and travelling are the main weaknesses .
