Another important warning I have gotten from this course is being careful with internet security. I am much more careful with my purchases online, because I understand that more and more hackers are penetrating the computers of numerous corporations. Identity theft is widespread and there are little that we can do. Utensils that hackers use include spoofing, trojans, denial of service attacks, and phishing. Making matters worse, our textbook has identified many corporations who has not aligned their strategic goals with IT security. I feel paranoid whenever I make purchases online now. I believe consumers should not make purchases online unless corporations can protect us from these security breaches.
