"The Security Mindset and the World Beyond Security"
The security mindset is a perspective and a set of skills that teaches us to spot how systems might fail --or be made to fail. This mindset can be applied to all sorts of systems. In this talk, I will share what I have learnedfrom applying my security training to a range of problems not traditionally considered security problems, such asalgorithmic fairness and dark patterns (i.e. manipulative user interfaces). My thesis is that security researchers'skills are applicable to — and sorely needed in — a range of domains, but doing this successfully requires letting go ofsome of the dogmas in the security community.
