Common sense is rare with cybersecurity, and it will be for a long time

We apply common sense to a lot of things we do in life. Apparently not cybersecurity.

Look both ways before you cross the street. Wash your hands before leaving the bathroom. Put a seat belt on when you get in the car. Don’t eat the yellow snow.

These are all common sense tips for safety that people have learned, whether from parents or one really embarrassing moment in the winter. But when it comes to cybersecurity, common sense is rare.
