Force will be with us
One thing I learned that there are lots of things to learn. It is an exponentially evolving phenomena, expect to be hacked.

Re: Growing Awareness
"not to mention the growing popularity of "the cloud","

Agree. Arguable the cloud is more secure than most of SMBs but the edge of the cloud could be anything anymore, so IoT security is critical.

Trust Apple but verify?
I agree with the article, when you have a closed system it is easier to put controls around it than an open system, that is the only advantage of iOS, other than that not having an open system is not our best interest obviously.

Re: what have we learned
I would agree, simply because nobody is being hold responsible on the attack they executed. Unless we increase rate of catching bad guys things will not get slow down.

Growing Awareness
Great article! The bit about Flash withstanding the apocalypse elicited a chuckle. However, with all the high-profile hacks this year, not to mention the growing popularity of "the cloud", I think that overall, users are becoming more aware of the importance of cybersecurity. Several studies have indicated that businesses plan to spend more on IT in the next year than they have in the past, which hopefully demonstrates that we ARE learning from our mistakes--if only a little bit.

what have we learned
what have we learned ?

well -- nothing : our situation is the same as it was at this time last year : we all have to risk our cash and our reputations in an assortment of un-secured computer systems because the cost of the losses is still less than the anticipated cost of corrections.

i did get my first EMV card though -- so, perhaps there is a little hope for us
