"Hazardware" is insecure-by-design technology products and applications. Today, typically users have granted full and complete authority for apps and devices to access data about them, their environment and their personal and professional networks. Specific permissions granted and their assumed results are far out of sync. The true cost of this gap is borne by us all in the form of data that is poorly safeguarded, enabling cyber-crime while further eroding privacy. Solutions include altering the responsibility for security away from the individual — the so-called weakest link — and defending forward.
