Security is About Passwords and Credit Cards

Security is About Passwords and Credit Cards. That's what a very nice lady told me a few months ago. At first I shrugged it off. Of course security is so much more than that. As I started to process it though I realized that is exactly what it is about to end-users. They don't care about the LMCompatibilityLevel, renaming admin accounts, UAC, SafeDllSearchMode, restricted tokens, or IDM. All they care about is to keep their credit cards safe, and the way they do that is by using a password. In the end, I started writing an article on it. When I was done, it was a three-installment piece. The first one just hit the web in the July issue of TechNet Magazine. Let me know what you think.
