Cybersecurity is becoming a problem people can't ignore, hackers say

By Chicago Tribune

People often pay more attention to the benefits of modern technology than its problems — in part because so far, the consequences have been tolerable, experts said during a Chicago Ideas Week event Thursday.

“That’s changing,” said Joshua Corman, founder of I Am The Cavalry, a grassroots organization focused on computer security and how it impacts public safety. “Through this overdependence on undependable (information technology), we have created conditions where the actions of any outlier or adversary can have way too much of an impact on our lives.”

The panel “Hacking our Defenses: The Future of Cybersecurity,” held at Venue Six10 in the South Loop, featured Corman and other security experts discussing the vulnerabilities of software and connectivity.
