Do We Really Need Information Technology?

Information technology has been an
ever-increasing part of our daily lives, and it’s sure to continue to play an
increasing role in the future as we become more dependent on computers and
smartphones to operate in the modern world. However, even though we interact
with information technology on a regular basis, most of us don’t think about
what would happen if it suddenly disappeared tomorrow. Would society be able to
function? Would it even survive? More importantly, if we can develop and
benefit from these technologies so much that they are no longer optional or
supplementary, then shouldn’t everyone have access to them?

The benefits of modern technologies

In this day and age, we do need
information technology to stay in touch with friends and family. It’s how we
find jobs, news, and entertainment. It’s also a great way to save time by using
online banking or ordering your groceries from the comfort of your home. All
these things can’t be done without some kind of information technology device.
But is it worth it to keep up with all these new technologies? For one thing,
keeping up with new technologies takes up a lot of time that you could use
doing other things that are more important. For example: if you’re not spending
enough time taking care of yourself (e.g., sleeping) because you’re busy
checking Facebook updates on your phone at 3 am then it would be better to take
care of yourself instead. If you want to know what people are saying about your
company but you don’t have access to social media accounts or email anymore,
then it might be time for an upgrade. You may have moved past old tech but not
everyone else has! Older people and kids might struggle using phones for
certain tasks so maybe investing in tablets for them will make their lives
easier. Sometimes it’s just good sense to say no once in a while when our
children beg us for expensive phones, tablets, computers, etc. Sure they’ll
love us now but as soon as something newer comes out they’ll be asking for
those instead! What if we had to buy that product again in two years? Plus
having a smartphone will come in handy during emergencies. Without access to
Wi-Fi, it won’t matter how many smart devices we own. So does anyone really
need information technology? Well…it depends on who you ask and why you ask

The risks of modern technologies

Technology is a double-edged sword: it
has the potential to make our lives easier, but it also has the potential to
make them more difficult. There are a lot of risks that come with having
technology in the first place. For example, by giving information about
ourselves over the internet we risk having that information stolen and used for
malicious purposes. Think about how many passwords you have – if somebody hacked
your account they would have access to all of those accounts and could do
anything they wanted with them. The simple truth is that we need information
technology, but there are risks involved in using it as well. It’s up to us to
decide what risks we’re willing to take when using this type of technology.
That being said, even though the risks exist, we need information technology to
function in today’s society.

How to protect yourself online

Information technology is a powerful tool
but it can also be a dangerous weapon. Think of information technology like a
knife: it’s great for cooking, but in the wrong hands it can be used as a
weapon. The same goes for information technology; it’s great when we use it
wisely to do research, but if our personal data falls into the wrong hands,
then the consequences could be devastating. There are many reasons why we need
information technology in this day and age; here are some examples . 1) Without
information technology, how would we learn about so many amazing things
happening all around the world? 2) Many people now work from home and they rely
on the Internet to do their jobs. 3) How would you communicate with your
friends or family if there was no email or text messaging? 4) Learning online
through MOOCs (massive open online courses), or reading blogs by experts on
topics that interest us help us keep up with what’s new and trending. 5) With
so much happening in our lives all at once, sometimes there just isn’t enough
time in a day to get everything done – from schoolwork to housework – but with
the Internet, I’m able to work smarter rather than harder. 6) And let’s not
forget social media sites! It’s easy to feel cut off from society without these
sites and the connections they provide. What happens when we don’t have access
to the Internet?

A description of one way how a person
might respond if asked why do need information technology?

Maybe someone responds by saying that he
needs it because he uses Twitter, Google Maps, and Skype to stay connected with
his parents who live far away.

Social responsibility and the internet

The internet is one of the most important
and influential inventions in human history. It has changed the way we live,
interact, and do business. It has also created a new world where it is possible
for people to be connected in ways that were previously impossible. This is an
amazing time for humankind; however, this technology comes with its own set of
issues. What are these issues? How can we address them to ensure that this
technology benefits us all? We need information technology so our society can
move forward, but we need to make sure that our technologies don’t cause
problems for future generations. One issue that needs to be addressed is how
much control over their data consumers have over the content they create and
consume. Who owns your data? Companies want access to your personal data
because they want more money. Companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon spend
millions every year on lobbyists trying to keep their access to your data open.
They argue that by using algorithms, they can find you better deals on products
or advertise you relevant products based on your preferences without violating
any laws. These businesses have been pushing back against legislation at both
state and federal levels aimed at regulating consumer privacy. In 2012, the
Senate Commerce Committee approved a bill called The Federal Trade Commission
Act Amendments Act of 2012 which would allow companies to share customer data
only if there was customer consent given. However, lobbying efforts from large
corporations successfully halted this bill from moving forward. In 2013,
Senator Patrick Leahy proposed another bill that would require government
agencies to tell Congress about major breaches within 30 days and require law
enforcement officials to report cyber attacks. But again due to pressure from
big companies including Verizon Communications Inc., Oracle Corp., Comcast
Corp., Yahoo! Inc., Citigroup Inc., AT&T Inc., Microsoft Corp., HP Inc.,
eBay Inc. and Time Warner Cable Inc.; this piece of legislation failed as well.

A word on non-profits

Non-profits are organizations that
usually focus on a specific cause or goal, and they are usually not-for-profit.
These organizations provide services to those who need it most and they often
have a small staff. They are funded by donations, grants, or other sources of
funding in order to keep the organization running. Non-profits need information
technology to connect with their customers and donors. A website is important
for promoting the non-profit’s mission as well as providing information about
what they do so people can get involved. Social media sites such as Facebook,
Twitter, and YouTube are also great ways for non-profits to reach out to their
community of followers and supporters in order to raise awareness of their
cause. Social media can be a powerful tool when used correctly because these
networks allow for instant feedback and access to more potential funders than
any traditional fundraising method. But if the social media strategy isn’t
carefully thought out, it may result in high numbers of likes but few actual
dollars donated!

The use of email listserves has also been
growing steadily since it was first introduced back in 1992. It allows groups
from all over the world to share messages electronically using an internet
mailing list server service. Email listserves are much cheaper than some other
forms of marketing and customer service platforms which is why many nonprofits
still rely on them heavily today.

A word on corporate data breaches

Data breaches, both intentional and
unintentional, can be devastating to a company. A data breach is any
unauthorized access to or theft of sensitive or confidential information such
as personal identifying information (e.g., name, address, phone number) or
intellectual property. The data breach could be the result of an inside job by
a disgruntled employee; an outside hacker accessing sensitive data through the
Internet; or even an accidental loss from a laptop computer stolen from an
employee’s car. The best way to avoid being compromised by these types of
incidents is to have a comprehensive cyber security plan in place that
addresses not only protecting information technology systems, but also
educating employees on how to handle sensitive information. Employees should
know what personal identifying information is, who it should never be shared
with and how to properly dispose of it when no longer needed. When devices are
lost or stolen, employees should use recovery options like Find My iPhone to
locate their device and make sure they set up passcodes and password
protection. Once they find their device they can remotely lock it if possible.
Once they get home, they should change their passwords for all accounts
associated with the device so that thieves cannot steal more data.
