..and I should resist commenting, yet..
This is what gets me.
People will say things like: "This is the number one threat..".
However, in a situation where these isn't much of a threat, there still may exist a list of these "threats", and the top item is "The number one threat", which only sounds bad. These type of arguments scare people because they are gullible and mislead.
What is also side-stepped is the idea that a flimsy defense is largely the fault of the defender (in a situation of abundance resources). If a better defense against cyber threats is needed, then improve existing systems with a better use of technology. It is possible to create network entry points that don't fall apart and spill their beans.
There always is a number one threat. No big deal.
