Abstract

With today’s advancement in technology, cybersecurity has always been at the forefront of revolutionizing the public in how digital information has been exchanged. Cybersecurity are the protective procedures that an individual and/or company must be responsible for such as data collection in order to prevent hacking, espionage, etc. The purpose of this artwork was to promote the awareness of cybersecurity by showcasing statistics and sentimental, relatable experiences that resonate within our society. While developing in mind a title for the art piece, I thought about my own journey into the art discipline and how many accomplishments plus challenges I had encountered. Making sure to shape the poster design effectively, my goal was to help citizens form strong habits in being attentive when searching the online web network. The inspiration behind this artwork was the moment my iPhone went missing at high school. I had placed my phone inside my shorts while leaving them in a locker and when I came back from my physical education class, I had noticed that my device went missing. Afterwards, I had to ask a friend to borrow his phone to call my parents. My parents utilized Apple’s Find My iPhone application in order to track my phone’s location, but multiple attempts were unsuccessful because the device was powered off. Unfortunately, whoever had the phone ignored my father’s multiple requests to return the phone. Therefore, my father erased all data on my phone through the application in the iCloud. If I had to give advice on this alarming issue, it would be to take advantage of the phone’s manufacturer recommendations for multiple layers of security, including the cloud service in order to prevent the compromising of personal information on an unlocked device. According to a 2018 online survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of Norton LifeLock, they stated that “59% have ever experienced a cybercrime”, which had been “impacting nearly 152 million US consumers”.[1] After learning my lesson from that point forward, I realized how critical personal and private data can be taken away in a blink of an eye.
