Prieur Leary’s current concern over the security of IT systems mirrors the current state of information technology all over the world. If information technology is to have a future, the hacking problem must be addressed successfully. If that doesn’t happen to a sufficient degree, the attendant risks could make the current openness of the online world a relic of the past. Of course, because of his experience, Prieur Leary understands that the greatest security problems are not necessarily due to the machines and devices used, but the people who are involved in these systems at every level. Training and sufficient safeguards should always be in place to cover that problem.
