Nowadays via the Internet we: watch movies (Netflix,Youtube), shop (amazon, ebay, Zalando, Marktplaats), buy the tickets for our holidays or flights.
We also use the Internet to communicate with others (email, Skype, WhatsApp) and even paying is no longer possible without the Internet.
By performing all these activities, we share sensible information, we DO NOT EXPECT that something can go wrong. On the internet, our messages, tickets, money and information in general is given away, it is just bit and bytes sent over a wire and through the air … in between the trillions of other people’s bytes
