Trust, or the placing of it, is one of the key activities at the core of our human endeavours. The process of placing trust is simpler when the process is physical and proximal - that is when you can see, feel and touch that which you are about to trust.  We have as human beings developed a number of risk management skills that we often cannot explain in concrete or scientific terms;  “They looked shifty”, or “The bridge looked rickity”.  These skills help us to decide whether or not to place trust.   The emergence of electronic networks that distance us from that which we want to trust introduce a number of new difficulties.   Simply put, we have not developed the appropriate mechanisms to place trust virtually, the requirements for which are clearly stated in the two Jericho Forum Commandments JF#6 and JF#7 which come under the heading: The need for trust.
