Most places that get hacked by 16yr olds, either don't have the staff to implement best practices or blatantly ignore them. When I say staff that means, Networking, Security or Management. If the managers don't appropriate funds to either provide the necessary equipment/software or are just plain ******* idiots, that ignore the advise of the professionals, that is when the companies get hacked. More and more managers are starting to get it into their thick dull ass skulls to start listening to the professionals, as the managers are being held more accountable for their inactions, both financially and legally.
Regardless anything deployed can get compromised, but the level of skill to compromise a well laid out security network won't be done by most of "16y/o" script kiddies. Just look at the latest fiasco Sony had with every PS3 account becoming compromised, which I guarantee was not following best practices "or was with outdated standards". I bet you it was more of a case appropriate updates to the network or accounts was not put in place to further mitigate the risks that are constantly changing. The end result the hacker compromised an administrative account or the back end database, most likely due to outdated passwords. I don't care who you are if you implement two-factor authentication injunction with biometrics, that would have helped to mitigate that risk. Now you show me the average "16y/o" script kiddy that will circumvent that.
