What has Shakespeare got to do with cyber security?

I’ve heard people compare all of the current warnings about cyber attacks to the warnings in the late ‘90s about the Y2K bug.

From their perspective, they believe concerns about cyber attacks are Much Ado about Nothing.

So what?

If you are one of these skeptics, are you sure you want to stake your reputation on this one belief?

Why not reduce the stakes by taking reasonable steps to ensure you are not an easy target?

Otherwise, if your belief turns out to be incorrect and people ask why you did nothing to try to reduce the likelihood or impact of the attack..

It may be your future career prospects that will be Much Ado about Nothing.
