Not only security researchers

Any abusive partner (regardless of gender), or not even a partner (roommate, relative, stranger, etc) may be tempted to invade the digital live of another person - one doesn't have to be a security researcher for this. There are so-called RATs, key loggers, etc., that don't seem to require sophisticated skills to attack an average computer user - especially if the attacker has physical access to their device. The key is 1) making security the default (disk encryption, screen locking, etc), 2) make it easy to use and, most importantly, 3) educate people about the digital hygiene.
