As more and more people go online, there is an ever-growing threat called cyberterrorism. The attacks use hacking, malware, and identity theft to try to damage, disrupt, or obtain unauthorized access to a computer system or electronic communications network.

There are more than three billion online users and according to the U.S. Department of Homeland security, which manages cyber security, online attacks have increased dramatically over the last decade. At this year’s Blouin Creative Leadership Summit, Blouin News’ Vanessa Yurkevich spoke to experts in the field to find out how to protect ourselves online.
