Password strength and security
The other serious issue in computing security is that it's not usually the computers.
It's the people who fail to follow the rules, click on darn near anything, choose passwords that are easily guessed, or just give away critical data to anybody that calls and sounds legitimate.
We won't get into the organizations that don't think security is even necessary and is too 'inconvenient'. They are the ones that fail to spend the money to do it right, then discover just how much it costs when a breach occurs.
Sadly, all of this silliness is predictable early on, and the folks in charge often fail to comprehend what their data is worth. I had a manager looking at my security update budget of a few hundred thousand dollars once, and he actually asked the right question:
"How much is our data really worth?"
My reply, "How much have we spent on our entire project to date?"
When he realized that number was in the billions, he got real pale, real quiet, and signed off on the budget real quick!
I guess money does talk real loud at times...
