Contrary to some of the negative views about technology, many new innovations are actually making the world a safer place. Everything from smart phones, smart home devices, security camera systems and electronic doors and locks are invaluable in a business setting.
Here are some ways on how technology keeps us safe:
Fingerprints and Face Recognition To Replace Passwords
Traditional passwords are easy to crack nowadays, due to the proliferation of keyloggers, viruses and hacking techniques. Today, unlocking devices may require the input of a fingerprint, which makes it harder for malicious attackers to get inside and steal trade secrets, business assets and customer data. Scientists are even working on password-protected systems that unlock by gait or by using your eyes.
CCTV Systems To Make Home and Businesses Safe and Secure
Protecting our homes and living spaces is of the utmost importance. Business security camera systems can be installed in a day, providing 24/7 real-time and video surveillance that deters potential break-ins, thieves and criminals. You can use CCTV to monitor pets, young children and those who need to keep an eye on their elderly parents.
Apps To Stop Distracted Driving and Create Better Drivers
Distracted driving, i.e., texting, using an app or watching videos while driving is something that no one should ever do. Technology, when used incorrectly can present danger. Traffic accidents due to distracted driving can be minimized by installing apps that prevent you from doing anything to help you focus on the road.
Software To Track Down and Locate Your Lost Device
Apps and software can now locate missing, lost or stolen devices like laptops and can even lock it down, preventing further use by malicious entities. What’s more, your mobile phone can now act as an additional security measure for more secure access in order to protect your personal information, usage data and files from prying eyes.
