Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Cybersecurity is a continuous effort, virtual reality is just another countermeasure that can reduce the chances of cyber attacks unless the bad guys find out the hidden secret behind. You always have to rely on human cyber skills in any case.

    I don't think it will be a full stop but it will slow them down. As we get smarter in protecting our systems they also get smarter and it may be our own fault. We tout a new breakthrough in security and publish an article on it to let people know but we also tipped the bad guys of and gave them the info of what was done to stop them. Now they focus their efforts on getting around our new roadblock.

    What Michael and SSangi said. there is no magic pill solution to security. That would be like saying virtual reality can fix all of our health problems... It's a lot of little things spread across the business, the people, and the network that make it all happen. That said, if you know of a vendor who is touting this, I would like to know who it is. Might need to invest in their stock! :-) In reality, as good as the marketers think they are, no one vendor is going to fix your security problems.

    Another thought on this, security is nothing more than practicing some IT management basics and doing them well over time - continually getting better. Here are a few pieces I've written that talk about this:

    As I always like to say, we don't have a security skills shortage but rather a discipline shortage. It doesn't take advanced security skills to address the basics.
