Cyber security and the Millennials

It is up to us how we choose to use technology. We can spend an hour using the internet for a good cause like for reading or research. At the same time, one could be using it to cyber bully another. But it would not be right to blame the millennials alone for using technology in an improper way. People of all ages have been getting killed taking selfies at dangerous spots unmindfully.

Similar is the case of fake news. If one tracks down those responsible for fabricating and spreading fake news, chances are they won’t find millenials. These are probably people who have been abruptly introduced to technology.

So the risks are different for people of every generation and awareness needs to be created.
