  • we do Not do more than upload data. Free. That is the business. What we do on social networks; with the applications of the mobile phone; and what we’re going to start to do with the so-called wearables, objects and clothes “intelligent”, that are also connected.These wearables and apps on health are doing that every day let us go up to thousands of data. And maybe the information related to our health is the most sensitive of all. Ensures the Panda Security that all of these data, which we ascend when we’re “caring” are critical data in regards to cyber security.Occurs with medical data. “The main problem is that ordinary citizens, we tend to think that anyone would be interested in having that information from us, because ‘we are not anyone.’ But, to think so is a serious mistake,” says Hervé Long, Global Consumer Operations Manager of Panda Security.Without going further, this same year he leaked the personal data of the prime minister of Singapore on the Internet, causing a crisis that was not resolved until the government regained control of the information. Another example, the attack that he received in 2015 the american company, UCLA Health, in which a group of criminals accessed personal and medical data of 4.5 million patients.The risk is real and that should make us wary… even more. So, recommend this company cybersecurity, before you download one of these apps, or purchase one of these devices, it is important to check what make use of our information, how it is stored, and where are your servers physically.The ideal would be that if someone were accessing that information, not be able to relate it to us. For this reason, it is advisable not to give our full name and use an alternate email account. Also, there are security measures in the mobile so that our data can’t be intercepted when traveling to the server that is hosting the application. In this sense, it is advisable to use VPNS, and apps of security that audited our navigation.“But above all, you must have common sense. As we do not put on life offline our personal data at the reach of anyone, neither should we neglect them in the digital world”, warns Lambert. For this reason, we should not connect never to a public wifi when using apps health. With what would have to tell the mobile that these applications are never active if we are not using.This is to avoid those data so sensitive from falling into the hands of criminals. Because by accessing our wearables and our apps of health and exercise might know what is our rate of cholesterol, how many hours we sleep, where we’re going to run, but they may also know of our allergies and intolerances, heart problems, or if our bodies are compatible with those of someone who might need them.
