On August 2, 2012 Tom McCabe gave a lecture at the Defense Acquisition University located in Fort Belfour, Virginia. At the beginning I found it important to frame the lecture. For those who thought the subject of ‘consciousness’ too unearthly I explained that the techniques can be used for decision-making – – any proposition that should be carefully considered could indeed be looked at in six distinct ways. What's more, I explained that looking at different facets of a proposition opens up insights that are very useful. This let me bridge into DAU’s world of software development and DOD policy.
We worked with the statement "Software apps present a cyber security risk". The result was a radically different way to view apps and a new perspective of apps vis-a-vis risk and new found opportunity.
