Re: Paradox
It is true that users often see things from the surface since that is the platform that we all engage with regularly. However, if we were to be required to tackle an issue, it should be from the root of the problem. Disruptions that are prevented from the top might still be processing at the base which becomes dangerous.

Re: Paradox
it's interesting to think about just how much thought and planning goes into a little application on your computer isn't it! I really wouldn't think so much every time I open up a Chrome or Firefox window that there's so much coding and communication behind it actually! That said, I reckon that we need to slow down and think very carefully about that impact on our lives like you've said and see just how important it is to secure that application properly too!

Paradox
Interesting points, but, alas, a fundamental paradox exists in the enterprise on this subject:

- Secure browsing

- Ban on Tor usage

Pick one.
