Why can’t we make the right decision all the time? Our sense of trust is broken. Lies, deceit, fraud, and insinuations make up a large part of crime for a reason. We are bad at trust. It’s in our biology. It’s why we sometimes make the wrong friends, date the wrong people, buy the wrong car, and do things that in retrospect were really really dumb. Now consider the fact that trust makes up the majority of security decisions from who you let in to what you connect to and you see we have a very big problem. This talk shows you how we are broken, how to analyze and test trusts, how the ISECOM trust metrics work, how they are used to replace risk assessments in many organizations, and how they can help you make better overall decisions.
