Today marks the 30th anniversary of a life-changing innovation: the first international connection of the World Wide Web.
In the 1980s, Tim Berners-Lee—a British computer scientist—succeeded in sending documents via an information system that was accessible from any node on the network, thus creating the World Wide Web. And, while things have changed quite significantly in the past 30 years, without that first success, the world would be a very different place today.
The Web has had an enormous impact on communication, culture and business. Most of us rely on it to communicate, whether that is by email, instant message or video call. The Web has certainly enabled a global community, making it possible for everyone to stay connected no matter where they are in the world.
Along with the personal uses, the Web has impacted the way we do business. Whether that’s as an online store or because the storage of data has moved to an electronic format, processes have been improved; transactions that once took weeks now take just hours and business is a truly global place.
However, despite this modern way of doing business having many positive points, it also has remove many negatives – in the form of cybercrime. From hacking into a company’s networks to stealing data, to convincing an employee to transfer funds out of the company, organisations are becoming more and more vulnerable to increasingly sophisticated attacks. It’s therefore unsurprising that Berners-Lee is disappointed to see the darker uses of the Web – exploitation by people breaking the system and publication of fake news being just two examples.
