Here is the thing with the cyber security experts. They talk too much. When you ask them to give you a couple of life saving tips, this is what you get as a result. The very first thing you are going to hear is that you should always walk on the safe side of the cyber cliff. What is that supposed to mean?
Use only legitimate software. Avoid suspicious websites. Do not do anything foolish while being online. Seriously? It is just like they are referring to the regular users of the notorious Silk Road. What else do these brainiacs have to share with us that can improve our security?
We are supposed to forget about all those ridiculous passwords, which include among other hard to believe “crown jewels” of pure ingenuity, such as password, 123456, 123456789, iloveyou, and similar. Do you feel safer already? What is the moral of this story about the top cyber security secrets?
Well, either these experts were in the bad mood mode, or we, the users, are helplessly naive and reckless. Maybe, we can really strengthen our cyber security position, with a few simple steps, we fail to apply over and over again. Maybe, the image in our cyber security mirror is too scary to look at.
