Good Practices
These are good practices that need to be followed much more than they currently are especially when it comes to password complexity. However, this is only small faction of things to consider when fighting cyber attacks. I'm completely for Occam's Razor but sometimes it is difficult to simplify such a granular topic.

Login and passwords for websites you will never visit again.
In my opinion too many websites want the user to have an account.   Yes they can resell the information the gather and have a revenue stream.   Im my case if the site is one that I do not think I will every visit gain then I do one of two thrings.  1.  Use fictious information ([email protected])  .   2.  Use somestandard login and passwords so I can remember it.    The latter practice is what causes problems.   If you only had a half dozen accounts then remembering would not be a chose but with literally hundres of accounts then the human mind demands simplification. 

 

I want websites to allow me to do business withotu an account,   I am willing enter my name, address and phonenumber each time in trade for the mercahnt not storing anything.

Finanlly as far a two factor authenification it may be technically secure but I do not need another device or application that I need to protect.    If I lose my cell phone that I would have to spend days reconstructing accounts.   That is too high a price.   The cheaper price is not having accounts,

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats.

This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
