(elated music) (garbled radio static) - Today we use the Internet all the time (phone ringing) from the time we wake up in the morning, and we check the weather on our phones to when we go to bed at night, and we ask Alexa to turn off our lights. Today there are 5.2 billion Google searches per day, and over 22 billion (logos popping) text messages across the globe between people every single day. That's a lotta data. To give you a frame of reference 90 percent of the content on the Internet has been created in just the past two years.
- Hmm? - You think about the world's population there's 7 billion of us. Did you know that 3.8 billion of those people are Internet users today? That's over half of the world's population. So why is security important? Data flows every day whether you're at home, doing personal learning or shopping, whether you go into work, and you're an employee with an organization, or whether you're actually in information security. Security permeates what we do, and it's very important that we understand what data we're providing, where it's traveling, and how we want people to use it.
