Some of the world’s best-known brands have invested millions of dollars in information security. So have their adversaries. But malicious actors are counting on the fact that your defenses are operated mostly by humans and tend to be the same across the board.
When you moved into your neighborhood, did you change your locks or do you have the exact same ones as all your neighbors? Think about what could happen if a thief compromised just one of those shared locks? For some reason, the world of information security has a same-lock mentality. And some “customers” are malicious actors working hard to do harm to the rest. Given this situation, we should not be surprised that even with the massive amount of money being spent, defenses still fail.
