"As a consumer, I hate that. As a business, I realize the value of that data. It's a tough one."


I always find it interesting how our perception changes depending on our position as a consumer or as a business. Sometimes I wonder why can't we find an equilibrium in this matter.

It's not just a click
Barbara Jorgensen   9/16/2011 8:28:15 AM

I like that! Good input, readers.

To the point about the Internet being used than otherwise intended--absolutely. That's another topic discussed this week. All of the data that can be mined once a user clicks or logs on to a link is intended for a purpose is widely abused. As a consumer, I hate that. As a business, I realize the value of that data. It's a tough one.

Barbara, you are right. Cyber security is a people problem. Its merely depends up on how we are using the data and whether we need to look for someone else data. If we respect others privacy and personality, there should not be any data threat and no need of cyber security. The over enthusiasm to overlook for other’s personal matter is the major concern and it’s purely an attitude issue.

Cyber security being a people problem is definitely true. No matter what software is in place, if the user clicks on the wrong things, it's their fault not the software. Ultimately if companies are going to allow individuals to access these sites at work they are going to have to educate them about these areas and possibly have punishments in place if they violate them. Sometimes having the negative impacts is the only way to get through to some people.

The tools created for fun being used for business
prabhakar_deosthali   9/16/2011 2:24:34 AM

In my opinion , many of the things that evolved on the internet were originally not intended for serious business . They were intended for fun & entertainment. The social networking sites have evolved like that.

Nowadays everything on line is being used for some commercial purpose. The faceless organizations sell products, services to faceless customers. And when money is involved how can the crime be left behind?

We need a new internet which is strictly designed ground up with security as its prime concern and not openness as it is now.

That's why education is the key. I feel like you must sit through a day-long seminar about the pitfalls of the net prior to ever signing on. But then agian, we get Internet on our phones now, so who's going to foot that bill.

It is NOT just a click

"A lot of [the problems] around social networking are people and culture issues" well expressed.It must be mentioned that Internet hides a lot of traps and it is not a game, its a living world. Every action we do it is recorded and every click we do may cause us problems. With the same way of thinking we act in daily life we must act also when we are on the net. I think "It is NOT just a click" may works.........
