5 Key Points:

Most illicit hacking is socially based not technology based. Anything that relies heavily upon computer software or hardware (from an airplane to a pacemaker) is, ultimately, hackable. Simply banning new or potentially dangerous technologies is counterproductive. Manufactured biology is potentially the biggest risk facing the future of mankind. The good guys are always going to be playing catch-up when it comes to broadly adopting new tech.
