Lesson 5 - Your Computing Devices
Your computing devices do not just store your data. Now these devices have become the portal to your data and generate information about you.
Unless you have chosen to receive paper statements for all of your accounts, you use your computing devices to access the data. If you want a digital copy of the most recent credit card statement, you use your computing devices to access the website of the credit card issuer. If you want to pay your credit card bill online, you access the website of your bank to transfer the funds using your computing devices. Besides allowing you to access your information, the computing devices can also generate information about you.
With all this information about you available online, your personal data has become profitable to hackers.
