Trust, Transparency, Dependence, and You

As the world is increasingly dependent upon digital infrastructure, it is increasingly dependent upon you. Software and hyperconnectivity permeate every aspect of our lives - with mortal consequences - and increasing effects on the critical infrastructure which supports modern society. Over the last 18 months, we've seen successful hacking compromises of: the water we drink, the food we put on our tables, the oil & gas that fuels our cars and our homes, the timely availability of patient care -- during a pandemic , the schools out kids go to, the municipalities who run our town and our cities, and even the federal government... "Stuff" is on fire... "In the end, the trust we place in our digital infrastructure should be proportional to how trustworthy and transparent that infrastructure is, and to the consequences of failure if that trust is misplaced." We're gonna need a bigger boat. Let's confront some harsh truths - and ground ourselves in the work to be done.
