    There’s a beautiful irony in half the comments on this video being spambots already 😅yes cyber security is going to get way more complicated. Imagine deepfaking blackmail photo’s and videos. Voice synthesis. Deep learning peoples speech and typing patterns. It will be near impossible to distinguish between a real online person and a fake in just a matter of 1 or 2 years.

    Anything can cost millions if you don’t specify millions of what.

    millions of what? electrons?

    VERY important topic, but rather poor presentation. Hard to follow for the uninitiated; adds nothing for the people already in the know.

    I remember getting a call thinking it was from the real bank. Then they asked for the code that they sent to me. I just remembered banks saying “don’t share the code even if we ask”. I felt so flustered because I felt they were genuine. So I made an excuse that I had to go, and they started to sound like my issue needed urgency, again I’m feeling more flustered now. Then I said I’d call them back on the official number. They hung up on me immediately.
