Relative cybersecurity

Demonstrate that there are still countries with a controlling regime that are trying to censor access to certain content.

Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

The idea through this outline is to demonstrate that we are somehow controlled to access what they want, to restrict certain populations' access to certain content. However, not all cybersecurity controls are sufficient to prevent such access. Underneath all that is seen, there are a huge amount of paths that transcend all these controls. It's mitigated to be dangerous because it doesn't have all the cybersecurity controls that censor them, but it's the demonstration that cybersecurity is relative.

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

Cybersecurity is a huge challenge for companies and governments. Everyone wants to control space for a variety of reasons, whether to protect an attack, share information, or restrict access to content. Censorship is still a reality of some governments. It's not easy for all your controls, high-tech software, or all that cybersecurity can be bypassed.

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

Taking part in this challenge is a way of being able to use my vocation (graphic design) to resignify the image that information security has today. Acting directly with the digital market, it is possible to realize that images, montages and photos are created in the wrong way, not expressing for sure what this whole technological world represents.

Hello Victor Medina Vieira  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 envision further developing the idea that there are several cybersecurity controls in the world today that are used to censor some people for accessing certain types of content on the web, which is found on the surface of an iceberg. However, these controls are not sufficient to prevent people from accessing this content via an alternate path that is at the bottom of the iceberg below sea level. With this, the idea is also to demonstrate that the fundamental principle of deep web is to provide security and privacy for individuals.

I had the opportunity to see some publications and I believe that the goal of the challenge will be achieved.
