With the advent of science, technology, and extending cyberspace, the world faces a relatively new threat to the security of every individual who uses the internet. Science and technology despite their benefits come with a few unique problems. Stealing intellectual property, using illegal methods to download e-books, movies, songs, and other media, infringing copyrights, using pirated software are all different forms of cyber risks that prevent the rightful owners from earning the revenues that were originally theirs. Ransomware, phishing, data leakage, cyber-bullying, hacking, and threats are a few examples that prevent an economy from developing and harm society by enabling crimes that affect individuals psychologically. Cyber-risks can even threaten the defense and national security of a country or spark a war between different countries.

My proposed study of cyber-security aims to provide a solution to these problems by creating processes and measures to tackle every one of these issues. The only viable solution to cyber-crime is cyber-security. Different ethical implications of privacy can be embodied by different technological designs, creating a need for experts who are aware of these implications. Due to the lack of such resources, nations worldwide will have to deal with complex social problems.
