How will we ever be able to stop these criminals from becoming more and more tech savvy?

I recently read a news story about a woman that was shopping at a Walmart when she suddenly got an alert that someone was trying to use her card. But her card was inside her wallet, inside her purse!!!! She thinks it could’ve been a group of suspicious men standing near her as she got out of her car that somehow scanned her card from inside her purse!!!! Now, stores sell RFID wallets that are designed to prevent this!!! So, how long before the criminals even find their way around that?

    Thieves are as smart and as hard working as other people. And, as far a cyber security, bad guys have more time than good guys. They can spend 50 years working on defeating a security system that took 10 years to develop.

    The solution is to address the risk/reward values. Not only by increasing the risk (jail time if caught) to crooks, but my increasing the reward to honest folks. If honest folks' reward (wages) are higher, then the risk/reward for becoming a crook tilts towards honesty.
