What’s behind ever more insecure cyberspace?

“Why are we here and what to do about it?”

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-we-here-dr-vladas-leonas-gaicd-facs-fieaust/

In this article Dr Vladas Leonas talks about 11 major causes of cyber insecurity.

I would like to add another element — There are quite a few security professionals and tech media who have been spreading misguided and misguiding information about security of digital identity.

My specific concern is about the security-destroying effects of ‘password-dependent password-less authentication’ and ‘password-dependent password-killer biometrics’.

Unfortunately, those guys are very loud, influential and well heard.
