Imagine being able to scroll through your memories like an Instagram feed, reliving with vivid details your favourite life moments and backing up the dearest ones.

Now imagine a dystopian version of the same future in which hackers hijack these memories and threaten to erase them if you don’t pay a ransom.

2) Should every business student have a more than rudimentary understanding of steps to take around cybersecurity?
