Let me start with the best part in case you don’t have time to read on: There is business value in difficulty. If you can add extreme difficulty for an attacker and only minor inconvenience to yourself, that’s a good thing. Utilities should focus on leveraging network architecture to add attacker difficulty while maximizing uptime and controlling costs.
I can practically hear peoples’ eyes rolling when talking about basic cyber hygiene. They tire of the inconveniences they experience throughout any given day: changing passwords too often, two-factor authentication codes, VPNs, screen locks, etc.
I get it. Sometimes it gets to me too, but my perspective reminds me it’s worth it.
