The Great Hack and the Government Want to Spy on Us More.

Today’s Episode:

It’s happened again. Another company hacked. A hack or hacking is a  factor in business. No business is immune to it. However, Acer was the worst. A tech company not aware their system was compromised is pretty bad. A whole year! The hackers also got a lot of data too. Businesses have a duty to protect customer data. If they want to be in business. Businesses need to take these acts seriously and beef up their security. Another shameful act is from the government. They always want to spy on us more. They claim its for our safety, but, they have never made us safe. In fact, they were powerless to stop someone from killing 49 Americans. The government is never going to stop either. They know little about technology and still do. It’s time they cared about the 4th amendment. It’s time they start acting like they care about too.
