Egos, Arrogance, and Ignorance: The True Cost of Cyber Negligence.

Organizations’ egos and ignorance are endangering millions globally, leading to devastating Cyberattacks, even fatalities.

This is psychological distancing—better known as ass-covering.

Recently, the NHS suffered yet another cyberattack. This time attributed to Synnovis, resulting in delayed and cancelled critical operations. Despite notifying the Chief Medical Officer, the ICO, and the NHS DPO, nothing has changed.

A month later, Synnovis and the NHSBT remain as exposed, vulnerable, and INSECURE as ever. Synnovis, already compromised earlier in Europe, have had insecure Internet Assets and Servers for years.

Let me be candid; People are dying due to continued basic security negligence.

Instead of addressing these flaws, organizations all too often enter self-preservation mode, hiding behind fight-or-flight responses. This rampant ass-covering perpetuates insecurity, leaving systems ripe for the next attack.

Security should NOT be about secrecy and evasion; it’s about transparency, accountability, and proactive measures.

If we truly want to combat Cybercrime, we must abandon this culture of negligence and cover-ups. It’s time to get real, take responsibility, and safeguard lives through genuine security efforts, not excuses.

The current state of Cyber Defence is a perilous farce—one that costs lives. Let’s prioritize true security over self-serving ignorance before more lives are lost.
