BT hires cyber-security

For Good or Evil?

'Cyber' Security can mean protection of customers/businesses, snooping on customers/businesses, or both.

Sorry to be so cynical, but I remember the Phorm days - while I applaud most attempts to make the tech world safer, I don't trust BT to stop at the point where the privacy of individuals is respected. I expect anything that is useful will be monetized, to the detriment of said individuals.

Phorm was why I started to use a VPN for all of my online meanderings, and the HomeHub was dumped in favour of a more secure router within ten minutes of the BT engineer walking out of my house after installing "Infinity."

I have probably totally missed the thrust of this snippet of information, but I just do not trust them now.
