Demonstrate that we are increasingly surrounded by technology that help us, but we don’t know what the cost of private life is.

Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

The idea is to show that the Internet of Things exists and is useful. It simplifies activities, solves minor problems and automates tasks. The idea is also to show that we need to be aware of how communication between all devices is done and whether these devices perform only the tasks for which we believe their purpose.

What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)

We are increasingly connected, whether through wearable devices or daily objects that have become smart to support us with daily tasks of life and allow us to focus on what really matters. The tendency is for mass use of IoT, however the biggest fear is at what cost of your privacy and what is really behind all the embedded technology.

Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)

My name is Rafael Vieira da Silva, Brazilian, I’ve been working with Information Security Management and Cyber Defense for about six years. What inspired me in this process was a presentation that I have watched, where the speaker used eyes and devil horns to illustrate about cybersecurity. I believe this interpretation is not the most appropriate to address the issue, once it can cause more panic than belief that we can live in a secure and connected world.

Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)

Because I believe that the current visual representations of cybersecurity are not able to clearly reflect to the laity the potential and risks of IoT. They should report without causing panic.

Hello Rafael Silva  Happy to see your contribution to the Cybersecurity challenge. How would you consider pushing this idea further? We've had a large number of very interesting creations, have you had a chance to browse other submissions? There's a very interesting conversation around cybersecurity going on!

Hello, Dima Boulad I imagine for my contribution to the cybersecurity challenge, to demonstrate to people who have contact with this representation that the new age of technology, known as the Internet of Things, connects us to the most diverse devices through an unknown connection. We don't know the data flow, where are they going, what are they? The evolution of this contribution I understand is to generate this question through the connection signal among all devices controlled by the smartwatch.
I had a chance to look at other contributions and I think they had fantastic ideas. I believe the goal of the challenge will be achieved.
