Current cyber security approaches are fundamentally broken.? Vulnerabilities in current implementations are virtually limitless, and threats are exploiting these vulnerabilities faster than we can detect and counter them.? This talk presents a qualitative survey of the current state of affairs in cyber security.? We show how current cyber security implementations compound the problem by creating the illusion of security.? The result is a primitive cyber society in which trust and confidence are absent or, worse yet, deceptive.? This examination of cyber security is intended as a reality check with the hope of provoking the thoughtful discussion about solutions that address the core problems.? We will examine this situation and present several approaches that attempt to develop a basis from which we can foster transformation in digital security.
