Reed-Matthews, Inc. is interested in the matter of Trust as it
applies to interactions between people, machines, and organizations. We
view Security as the management of Trust
- Who do you Trust?
- Why do you Trust them?
- What do you Trust them to do?
- How will you know if you should no longer Trust them?
Those questions create the framework for understanding how the industry
views Security. But it also provides the basis for relating the
kinds of security we're talking about to the practice of risk management
in the "real world".
Risk and Trust are inter-related concepts. Risk is a measure
of whether Trust is well placed.
Generally, when we say we trust something, we mean that its behavior
is predictable, that it does what is expected, that it doesn't do what
it's not supposed to do, and it will do what it does when its supposed
to do it. These are common-sense measures - do we "trust" our
friend? Our car? Your web server? Some vendor?
This web site will provide a collection point for resources in the areas
of security, and as a place to publish our thoughts on particular problems
and potential solutions.
Reed-Matthews, Inc. works with a number of partners to provide access
to world-class talent in the Security arena, including InfoCore,
