Appropriate Security

In these days of impossible to use systems (because of too much security with two factor and even more now) competing with the issues of zero hour risks (immediate risks that impact your computer’s security before the security vendors can find a way of protecting you) the idea of appropriate security seems appealing.

A great guy I used to work with was interviewed recently by Risk Management magazine on the topic of appropriate security for banking (do you really need to be able to drawn down on your mortgage at the casino ATM?).

The interview was in a banking security context for a leading international bank but I think it raises some potential issues to consider for all businesses as well as in a social context.
