Nowadays, there are hardly any barrier to information access and everything is transmitted in seconds. We can see every day how large volumes of data are handled and how ICTs affects virtually anything we do. Today we can open a bank account from our sofa or use a “cloud” service to share the latest project we have worked on and, at the same time, know that all our data is protected.
