Common sense???
Wow, I'm not really sure where to start on this. While I agree that system security should be better, we're also living in reality here. And, I'm going to be recommending a password manager, not holding my breath for the industry to get their act together.

But, I guess I've also got a few bits of advice for you:

1) Pay more attention to the real world (ie: science) instead of The Science.™

2) Don't pay much attention to comparative religion profs. (whether they are writing about religion or gluten)

3) Starting with a clever angle or story doesn't help much if you don't know how to tie it together. Your article should have been about a paragraph long, and probably best to stick to things you know something about.

Re: Gartner study
Thanks Joe!

 

I do not know the study, but I absolutely dispute the claim.  Go for example to www.privacyrights.org/  data-breach  slash new, select 2013 and unselect gov/edu/non-profit and medical (those seem less likely to go out of businesses.  (DR blocks all URLs in comments, sorry!)

 

I see Aaron brothers (still around), etrade (still around), the The Shelburne Country Store (still around), nomorerack.com (now Choxi.com), "Various taxi cab companies in chicago" (Don't know how to reasonably evaluate that, especially in light of Uber), Sears (still around), Zevin Asset Management (still around.)  I am now bored, because out of 7, I have one I don't know and 6 "still around."

Gartner study
Re: "Attacks rarely actually sink a business."

Adam, what of the oft-quoted stat from Gartner a couple years back indicating that the majority of businesses to suffer a data loss went out of business within two years?  Has there been an update?  Or do you dispute the methodology of the study?
