To secure or not secure, that is the question.

This thread seems to have evolved into to camps: People who lock it all down, and people who think it's too hard to lock it all down.

I am in camp 3: Lock everything down according to its value. I leave rakes and shovels in my yard, I don't leave my wallet on the window sill, and I always lock my doors.

Some of my stuff is LOCKED, some is not that locked, and it's all behind a firewall.

Final points:

  1. If someone wants in, they'll find a way,
  2. You don't have to leave the door open.
  3. As a home user, you are 1 in a Zillion

Finding an appropriate security policy is the hard part.

Find balance.
