Task 4: Option 3

As technology progresses at the rate it currently is, so to will the rate of ‘hacking’. When looking at this question I immediately thought of the current health system and how our health data is stored, and how well protected this information is. Understandably, hospitals and health professionals have strong malware protection, however what would happen if this were to fail and all health information could be shared freely. As we turn towards saving personal information onto digital devices, we are more at risk of exposing ourselves to the outside world. Nowadays, we even store our addresses on our phones, bank details (e.g. apple pay) and some medical requirements. All of this information is easily accessed by simply misplacing a mobile device. Food for thought!
