While there are many things that can be done to reduce the risk — the “100% safe” scenario is a myth — we certainly cannot expect (at this time) that someone or something is going to take those steps for us.

Times have changed quite a bit since cybersecurity wasn’t even a word. Now it is most definitely a thing, a problem, a cost, and also a value.
