'Security fatigue' can cause computer users to feel hopeless and act recklessly

(National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)) A new study from National Institute of Standards and Technology researchers found that a majority of the typical computer users they interviewed experienced security fatigue -- weariness or reluctance to deal with computer security -- that often leads users to risky computing behavior at work and in their personal lives.
