Re: Move along, nothing to see here

It is more like driving on snow, you put snow tyres on and you have done an advanced driving course, but some b* shoots your tyres out as you drive around the corner...

Fully patched and "best practices" secure systems can still get caught out - just look at Solar Winds customers or the Exchange zero days last month. You have done everything to ensure your system is secure, but you are still vulnerable.

Yes, there are millions who don't take care of their systems and do the equivalent of driving around on bald tyres and worn out brake pads, but even those that are fully secured can still have accidents.
