Psychology of security –Humans avoid security on purpose sometimes, essentially a risk gambler. In my upcoming book we will discuss the interesting phenomenon where ‘enough’ people are not paying attention(about 30%) so that everyone now is being attacked more. (with so many machines as an attack surface the criminal hacker has a target rich environment)
We seem to be in a kind of catch 22 in cybersecurity
A lot of people and thus companies do not want to tell others if they need help or have problems (in their cybersecurity). It could just be that it is too complex an issue.
Many managers or owners are not aware the danger that they are in, they think they are not a target(too small to get attacked). Not true, at minimum the computer itself is of use as an attack platform.
These are just some of the reasons about 30% are not doing necessary prevention tasks.No communication of problems here, causes a lot of people not to pay attention.
Ultimately this causes the rest of us problems since their machines are used to attack the rest of us.
