We now live in an age where anything is possible. In Chapter 2, you’ll see real-world examples demonstrating some interesting and enlightening examples. For those who understand technology, we live in an extremely interesting time. We’re reminded on an almost daily basis of the struggles of corporations by headlines alerting us to the latest breach. Major parts of the American infrastructure have been called “indefensible” by those tasked with ensuring its security, and nation-states have started to not only see the value in waging cyber-attacks against each other, but have begun to do so by amassing large cyber-armies.

So how can a user be expected to understand the actual impact of malicious e-mails when the effects are so far removed from the cause? This makes it virtually impossible for the average person to appreciate the effects of their bad techno-security decisions.
