- The possibility of a power outage analog global is not an illusion.
“The worst thing on the internet is coming” and is no longer an illusion the possibility of a power outage analog global, said the Spanish Antonio Ramos, specialist in digital security alerted at Quito on the vulnerability world before the cyber attacks.
And is that according to Ramos, who describes himself as a hacker in the positive sense of the definition, the internet was created some 35 years ago as a functional tool to provide services, but that in the beginning, despreocupó for the safety, an oversight that now seems to take its toll on all over the world.
The Spanish specialist, author of several books on this subject, offered this Thursday in the ecuadorian capital a keynote address in the context of 32 Latin american Congress of Banking Security, organized by the Association of Banks of Ecuador and by the Federation of Banks Latin american (Felaban).
Ramos, who many call a “hacker of ethics”, recalled that the world has suffered this year two cyberattacks important that, for him, are not the worst, but that “have affected lots of large corporations” and that have come to paralyze ports and office buildings.
But these “there are still a large large-scale attack”, so that repeats the phrase with which he has alerted the world since two years ago: “The worst thing on the internet is coming”.
he Recalled that in the internet network have been “services vital to the human race” as “pensions, energy, logistics centers, airports,” and many others.
If there is the possibility of attacking a system weak as the internet, which even physically has its platform in the geological fault of San Andres (USA), “we would have a great digital switch. This is studied”, and several developed countries have started to develop plans cyber defence to face up to this possibility.
Even “there are governments that may use the internet as a battleground, a weapon against other nations or other countries”, he warned. In the face of these cyber-attacks, citizens “we will be the victims”, which unexpectedly could not withdraw money from the atm or purchasing airline tickets.
“The citizens of can not do much, because we will be the victims of the chain, but governments can make plans cyber defence or cyber security domestically to prevent when this can happen,” said the spaniard.
According to him, the creation of a culture of digital security is basic to humanity at this stage of the development of the technologies and in this, he says, could contribute decisively to the media.
The only way to deal with it “is to instruct the citizenship in the correct use and careful technologies, and only the media can do”, apostilló Ramos.
