Fernando commented on Trust and wisdom in cybersecurity

Thinking about the problem at hand - how to make the design more immediately understandable - I realized just how deeply the common cybersec-related images (depicting hooded characters, unintelligible numbers and codes, etc) are so deeply rooted in our minds. However, they do efficiently convey an idea: that one should fear those factors that compromise our cybersecurity. I guess the biggest challenge for my design it to make it more relatable to people, in a more concrete way. I need to anchor it to something from real life that most people knows - like the usual images are anchored in graphics based on movies like Matrix and things like that. How can I anchor my idea of collaborating for cybersec on some strong graphic asset? That's the main task I need to carry.

Hello Dima Boulad. Well, the most important to me is making the idea very "easily understandable" to the general audience. From the Challenge Brief, I understood that OpenIDEO is looking for designs that the public can easily grasp and start thinking about cybersecurity in everyday terms. My idea is that cybersecurity depends on an "ecosystem" formed by "tech", "government", "media and rights organizations", and "users", with each of these playing a role. I want to make my design more understandable, with enough information in it to make people think about my idea. How should a user behave to stay secure? What should we demand from our governments, what kind of actions, as to enforce an environment with freedom and security? How can we make clear, to the tech industry, that we must value privacy, freedom and security? I must find a way to convey these, and other ideas, on the final design. About other contributions, I checked some, not all of them. I must confess that many of them seem a bit too abstract to me, maybe because I'm not an artist neither a cybersecurity professional I could not relate to some of them at all. I applauded those that caught my attention, however. Let me know if you need any more input, and thank you for commenting on my idea.

Been thinking about the ideas on the smartphone screen... "Be discreet" is not exactly what I had in mind. It should be something like "use good judgement".
