  1. Often cyber security involves a lot more than a technical solution. It requires taking into account people, cultures an economics at macro and micro levels. Non technical factors can create blind spots that attackers can exploit that can surprise designers. Such as the belief in compliance by users even the malicious one or that a user of a system would inconvenience many for a small perceived benefit. Have a look at the case study of prepaid electricity meters in Ross Andersen's security engineering book that shows how you need to account for cultural, social and economic issues to make a solution work. Legal solutions can drive organisational and market behaviours to improve security; data privacy, cloud and CNI/CI are great examples. \ Cyber problems are fascinating because they are so complex. There is no right answer, just less bad ones.
