    Hello, i want to start a discussion about, what are the biggest cybersecurity threats for you? For me, i think one of the biggest threats are hardware trojans like dark vishnya or bash bunnys or something like that. Another big threat i think is when big IT companys have backdoors in their systems and hackers find them, or stuff like the hafnium problem from windows exchange. When microsoft need a half month to make an update for their servers.

    I think humans are the biggest cyber security threat, like most of the disastrous cybersecurity incidents start with some kind of social engineering attack, the most recent one was 'EA' source code getting stolen last June (https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-57431987), (https://www.wired.com/story/ea-hack-fifa-frostbite-source-code/)
