Keith and read to her children by the amazing Hedy Lamarr, actress, inventor, big thinker. “The Paradoxical Commandments” People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centred. Love them anyway.

What do we have to worry about in 2018? I would focus on Data Theft and Cyber-Physical Attacks. It is not a random choice. Cyber-attacks are for a reason. Analyzing them to understand these reasons helps us to predict the nature of the attacks. The international situation, technological trends or the fight for power based on religious, ethnic or cultural grounds are amongst the main causes.
