I recently mentioned how many new cars use a very convenient keyless entry system, and how wrapping these keyless devices in tin foil or placing them in a metal container can stop criminals from stealing the vehicle.

Apparently, some people have put the keys in their microwave, as it is a very effective blocker.

Unfortunately, many of them have forgotten that they did this when they used the microwave the next morning.

They only made this mistake once.

What has this got to do with cyber security?

When considering a new security measure, we must also consider its impact on our workflow, so our reduction of one risk does not introduce another.
