Episode 42: Security Layering and Usability Trade-offs

Digital Shadows

Simon Hall and Richard Gold join Rafael Amado to focus on the trade-offs between security and usability, as well as the practice of security layering that can often make us more insecure. The team look over security measures such as regular complex password expiry policies that create headaches for organizations and end users, why it’s not easy to make security usable, whether certain security measures such as anti-virus software actually make us more insecure, and what alternative system defences can bridge the gap between security and usability.
