Cybersecurity Should Be Miami’s Biggest Concern Of 2017

Cars, homes, cities and even Miami business owners are being connected in the world of technology. As technology becomes integrated into our Miami business culture, we become over-dependent on it. If technology fails, this dependency can make us miserable. Imagine being on the road and your phone runs out of the battery. What will be your reaction? It may increase your heartbeat.
