Re: How do we simplify security?
Yes to your point about new iOS 8 security features. That is, assuming current iphone users can get through the update process, which requires a ton of storage (5.8 GB).  Moral of the story, is anything ever really simple in consumer tech any more?

Re: How do we simplify security?
Maybe they will adopt the Apple model of keeping it simple yet functinoal ... I guess the new iOS security features will be a good test for that.

How do we simplify security?
Hopefully, security can be simplfied. I'm curious whether the project will try to apply security from some new vantage point or simply coordinate the use of more tools.

Re: Hard to argue against the concept...
Ha!  You are so right!  Sometimes it feels like we are stuck in a infinite loop.  Solution to vulnerability -> Solution implemented -> Vulnerability found in solution.  Rinse and repeat.

Re: Hard to argue against the concept...
The interesting point here is that there are some good tools out there for users to secure their stuff. That's good news. But the tools just aren't user-friendly enough, so regular (non-tech security) users give up on them or don't even know they exist. Mainstreaming this stuff would be a big step.

Re: Hard to argue against the concept...
I agree, Google would be one of the mandatory players in this effort. It should be an industry wide effort to succeed.

Re: Hard to argue against the concept...
I know and I agree. The only problem we will face is that the next day somebody will find a vulnerability in it and we are back to square one.

Simple, secure and easy to use
If we can simplify security that puts security concerns out of our minds they would be the ultimate situation I want to be in. Today, we either do not care until we get hit, or get bug down and lock everything down which leaves end users frustrated.

Re: Hard to argue against the concept...
The holy grail of security, ease of use and high certainity of security, I wish them the best of luck.  I have a feeling that at some point in the near future someone will come up with a fool proof product that works well and stays out of the users way and the rest of us will be smacking our foreheads saying "Dang, I should have thought of that".

The Promise and Reality of Cloud Security
Cloud security has been part of the cybersecurity conversation for years but has been on the sidelines for most enterprises. The shift to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic and digital transformation projects have moved cloud infrastructure front-and-center as enterprises address the associated security risks. This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
