Security is no something that can be solved for us, or something that can be bought. We constantly need to make security decisions. As technology becomes more important in our lives, the consequences of making the wrong decisions are becoming more severe. We need to explore the risks that surround us and how we can navigate them safely.
While one may be correct in saying "There is no such thing as 100% secure!", one is not necessarily being helpful.
I emphasise the practical aspects of security. I make good use of labs, typically employing a variety of virtual machines. I also encourage the development of programming skills to automate simple tasks and explore systems in greater detail than normally possible.
Practicing attacks is an illustrative exercise in preparing suitable defences (not to mention how much fun hacking can be!)
