QOTD - EU's Neelie Kroes on Internet Security

We are all here because we recognise the Internet is important: for our economy, for our values, and for our human rights. We all recognise that insecure systems could harm those benefits. [...] 
We rely on the internet for ever more services – from shopping and socialising, to healthcare, education, and smart transport. 
But the more we depend on it – the more we depend on it to be secure. Staying open and free is essential to online innovation. And there is no true freedom without security – not when you're walking down the street, and not when you're online.
-- Neelie Kroes, VP of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda
