Design and cybersecurity

I thought this was a fantastic podcast – great storytelling in the world of cybersecurity.

Dennis Fisher talks with Peter Baker, the founding brand designer at Duo and the man behind the Decipher brand, about his design philosophy, the earliest days of Scio/Duo, why design matters in security, and the influence that positivity and usability has had on the industry.

Some fantastic insights, especially around design when it comes to security products.

  • Security and usability always being opposed to each other
  • The more usable you make security the more insecure it is … that is what everyone thought
  • The more usable we can make it the more secure it is gonna be cos people are gonna be more willing to apply it to more areas of their business
