Users Disabling Security
It's an old story: users disable a security measure because it's annoying, allowing an attacker to bypass the measure.
A rape defendant accused in a deadly courthouse rampage was able to enter the chambers of the judge slain in the attack and hold the occupants hostage because the door was unlocked and a buzzer entry system was not activated, a sheriff's report says.
Security doesn't work unless the users want it to work. This is true on the personal and national scale, with or without technology.
