Organizations implement IA security controls based on the perception and identification of risk. Christ teaches a lot about what influences our perceptions and the appropriate ways to apply “control”. This presentation will explore New Testament wisdom and instruction about human perception and Christian concepts of control, and associate that knowledge to proper establishment of IT security controls.
