The Security Threat
Nanotechnology is going to present a lot of problems for security systems, and well, security overall. New forms of encryption and data storage will be made using nanotech, which is kind of part of the problem here. This could result in the creation of more sophisticated cyber attacks as well as violate the privacy of billions. On top of this, there is a likelihood we’ll use nanotech for new forms of sensors and monitoring systems. Yet again, this presents a problem as such technology could be used to violate people’s privacy. Basically, if nanotech became sentient one day…this type of connection to security systems would give them all they need to end humanity without much effort being needed.
