If you think of cybersecurity as a bit like 'skin', you will not go too far wrong. "Keeping bugs and beetles out, and all the organs in", as the song has it.

 

My skin does that most of the time, but I did eat some food today, and I caught the odd cold (and recovered from it), and I've got 3 children; also I fully expect that in 100 years' time, the bugs and beetles will have won. So I don't expect the skin to succeed in its nominal job all of the time. I'm just after 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' along the way.

 

The cybersecurity 'problem' is that different people and businesses have different agendas, sometimes mutually-incompatible ones. And it's the same in any competitive situation. And the capitalist way, the public interest in the Western world (China too), demands that businesses shall compete.

 

I'll read the story. Make it a good one. is it fact, or fiction ?
