It is often in the aftermath of a crisis that we begin to realize that we should have been preparing for something in the first place. As human beings, we are not very good at thinking ahead to prevent the bad thing from happening in the first place. However, we may need to think more logically going forward if the predictions from cyber-security expert William Salto are correct about our current state of affairs.
The man points out that technology is everywhere in our daily lives, and that we need to have the mindset that an attack is just about to happen at any moment. We have to at least get ourselves to start thinking in a crisis mode if we want to be able to adapt when a crisis actually does come around.
William Salto thinks about these things because he helps to find investors for small businesses that need them. He works to make sure that the investors can enjoy a healthy return and that the companies are able to obtain the capital that they need to keep on going. He has to think about a lot of big-picture items in the course of doing his job.
Saito has been programming from a very young age. He was like a duck to water when it came to working with computers. He has simply always been interested in how they work and what the greatest potential is that we can get out of them. He doesn’t like to give up on a problem simply because it is technical or requires a certain level of expertise. He just keeps hacking away at it until he has learned something new.
He has written a book about his life story and how he has maintained an entrepreneurial spirit despite the challenges that come with a fully connected world. In that book, you will see that he does not believe that having all of the technology that we do hurts us, quite to the contrary. However, he does feel like people need to take warnings seriously when it comes to how we use technology and how much we have come to rely upon it. He does not believe that enough people are aware of just how vulnerable they may be to attack.
