Future Crimes by Marc Goodman (43)

This is an eye-opening book about cyber safety.  After reading Goodman’s book I have come to believe that there isn’t any safety. I believed that before, but now I actually having a world’s leading authority telling me about this which gives me the foundation and credibility that I need to make my conclusion.

What a world we live in!  For all the good that technology has given us, there is so much danger that lurks between the lights and beeps, dangers that were not present even ten years ago.

Technological advances have benefitted the world immensely. But our technology as it is created now has turned against us, betraying us at every turn and making our life an open book for thieves and fraudsters which seem to be multiplying like the wild fires in the west in the summer.

Hackers can devise monitors that can spy on everything that you do with your family. Thieves are analyzing social media posts to plot home invasions, and stalkers are exploiting the GPS on smart phones to track their victim’s every move.

Today’s criminals can steal everything, from our identity, drain online bank accounts, and wipe our computer servers, but that’s just the beginning. These thieves can do so much more damage to us. Goodman has discussed all of this in his monumental book.

What happened to our world?!!  What happened to something that could be considered good with all its many benefits to be damaging to us?

This book is an eye-opening one, and a book that everyone should read. Then maybe we could at least know the fact so that we can govern ourselves accordingly.

This book is the scariest book that I read. But the factual base of this book is even scarier. None of us are safe from cybercrimes.
