Should cyber-security be more chameleon, less rhino?

I thought this was going to be about cyber deception (disclosure: I sell and support deception from Cymmetria), instead it’s some interesting ideas in this ramble through some cyber security issues, but no ‘silver bullet’…:

[…] But while such approaches show promise, Check Point‘s Neatsun Ziv concludes that: “There is no such thing as an unhackable computer, the only thing that exists is the gap between what you build and what people know how to hack today.”

There is always a trade-off between usability and security. The more secure and hack-proof a computer is, the less practical it is in a networked world.

“Yes, we can build an unhackable computer …but it would be like a tank with so many shields that it wouldn‘t move anywhere,” says Morphisec‘s Mr Danieli.

The concern for the cyber-security industry is that as the nascent “internet of things” develops, powered by 5G mobile connectivity, the risk of cyber-attack will only increase.
