The author pretty much answers his own question in "1. Decide how secure you
want to be. " That about covers it all. Those more concerned with security
will obviously do more research than those who don't and will implement
(either off the shelf solutions or their own design) protections based on
that research. Those more concerned will also make sure their protections
are working and keep up with potential threats.
I disagree with the analogy of the "Holy Grail" which would imply an
all-in-one solution. As the threads here show, there are as many solutions
as there are users and each can justify their actions or views. I guess the
point of the article was there will unfortunately be so many controlling
views there will have to be compromises to the solutions/protections.
