TK Keanini, CTO of Lancope, had the following reaction to the new CompTIA security readiness study.

Regarding human error, there is a big difference between making mistakes and being tricked by the threat into taking some action which ultimately leads to you being comprimised.  Most individuals face the latter and as our lives become more and more publicly visible in social networks, these phishing tactics grow more and more sophisticated

Attackers continue to innovate around effective defensive measures and I don’t think there will be a day where the threat just tosses in the towel and claims the defender the winner so year after year, we should see this co-evolution between attackers and defenders.”
