The Internet is not automatically a secure or safe place to be. It is important to be clear and distinct when discussing security. Security is not a singular concept, solution, or state. It is a combination of numerous aspects, implementations, and perspectives. In fact, security is usually a relative term with graded levels, rather than an end state that can be successfully achieved. In other words, a system is not secure; it is always in a state of being secured. There are no systems that cannot be compromised. However, if one system's security is more daunting to overcome than another's, then attackers might focus on the system that is easier to compromise.
