Most Security Human Error – But Trust Plays Key Role

Date Published: September, 15, 2016

In the world of cybersecurity, there certainly seems to be lots of work to do – each day brings new breaches, attacks and vulnerabilities. While much of security involves human error or negligence, foundational security based on the concepts of trust can provide more and better assurances against many such errors and indeed other security issues.

At Structure Security conference in San Francisco, speakers will address just this issue – and work they’re doing to make security part of hardware. Organizers note, “…which is why it’s so important for hardware companies to do as much as possible to save us from ourselves.”
TCG will be represented at the event by Matthew Garrett, who has spoken for TCG on the topic including at RSA 2016. An example of trusted computing as a foundational security element also will be demonstrated at the event.
