Learn to use ( e.g. PGP ) Electronic Signatures to authenticate transmittals

Transmittals include e/mail, EFTs, Credit Cards, online shopping/banking/tax reports, and most particularly software .- if you are using a computer for commercial purposes the old garage computer concept of "run anything you find" -- has to go,.... back to the garage computer. not the commercial one.

re: Time To Dump Antivirus As Endpoint Protection?
Antivirus is a poor infosec control that should have been commonly replaced by alternate control(s) long ago, such as compartmenting. A low-risk-tolerance web-browsing compartment could be further controlled by something like whitetrash.sf.net. Discussion of isolation and containers just sounds like "cardboard" layers of boundary scoping that don't actually prevent or protect -- they simply require an adversary with more persistence.

We know for fact that adding a layer of controls like EMET or ChromeFrame will do a lot more than upgrading/fully-patching IE and installing X AV from vendor Y. Additionally, Enterprise management agents (e.g. ePO, AirWatch, et al) open up the surface attack area with new concepts of trust that adversaries can utilize for exploitation/pivoting.
