Abstract: While users are responsible for initiating 90%+ of losses, it is not their fault. The entire system is what enables the losses, and the entire system must be designed to prevent them. Drawing lessons from safety science, counterterrorism, and accounting, this presentation details how to expect and stop user initiated loss.
