The False Binary of Cyber

Episode Summary

We’re in an impermanent phase with technology where circumstances and cyberattacks are not always black or white. Here’s what we’re contending with: would you prefer a medical diagnosis from a human or machine? In another scenario, would a cyberattack on a state’s power grid be an act of war? Officially, it’s not considered so, yet. Or, perhaps a scenario less extreme where you buy a video and then 5 years later, it disappears from your library bc the company where you bought your video from loses the distribution rights. Data ownership is an important part of data security and privacy, but there are no hard and fast rules.
