When you distil an idea too much, all meaning is lost.
Scrolling through LinkedIn, I came across a new piece of security advice.
“Don't reset your password until your password manager says”. 🤦♂️🤬😱🤯
Time to add it to the list.
I can just about find coherence in these statements with a pedantic mind, a stiff drink, and an obsessive approach to context. Is it any wonder people are confused?
The problem... security can't be explained in soundbites.
Context is essential. There isn't a one-size-fits for all situations.
When everyone is going short. It's time to go long.
Time for a new project - 6,000 words in 6 months: The Definitive Guide to Passwords and Authentication. Not for sales, but to explain conflicting security soundbites.
