When was the first known hacking? According to Internet sources, the first bona fide case of someone subverting information technology for malicious purposes occurred in 1903. It happened when Magician and Inventor Nevil Maskelyne gained unauthorized access to a supposedly secure system to thwart John Ambrose Fleming's public demonstration of Guglielmo Marconi's secure wireless telegraphy technology. After successfully negotiating Guglielmo’s security he proceeded to send insulting Morse Code messages through the auditorium's projector.
While this incident could hardly be viewed as a harbinger of things to come, it does point out that for every secure system there’s a maliciously intentioned individual or organization determined to gain access to your data and infrastructure.
In the world of the “Internet of Everything” security is paramount. Whether it’s covering your credit card at a gas kiosk, updating your computer’s anti-virus or resisting the urge to click on a tempting link in an innocent looking email, your attitude and approach to web-security is all-important.
