Stories of misuse are revealing how ill-prepared healthcare companies are for genetic data storage. Recently, a novel technique for precise gene editing has been introduced leading to a bigger problem in bio cybersecurity, bio-ethics, law and biological interpretations of all probabilities for state-of-the-art enhancement of humans and even to the idea of creating “designer babies”, “super-soldiers”, etc. What is more, genetic data freely available for many of the people that already undergone genetic screening, become a threat for skimpy, misrepresented and misused genetic data. As a result, securing our genetic data, i.e. bio cybersecurity is becoming more imperative than ever.
