October 2017, there was panic in the world of cybersecurity. Media around the world relayed a crucial information for anyone using a wi-fi network. The security of WPA2 keys had been compromised. Researchers had discovered a security breach to recovering the password of your wireless network. Through this and other flaws, hackers have the ability to read the data exchanged between your device and your network but also to divert your connection. Facing this type of threat, we are all concerned. France and Europe decided to make cybersecurity, a major theme of the year 2018 so that on each territory, are made aware of this.
