Trust permeates most aspects of our lives and allows us to function on a daily basis. We trust the food we order has not been tampered with. We trust a vet to care for our sick pet. We trust our house to keep us warm, safe, and dry. Security contexts are no exception. Trust offers a mental shortcut that allows us to make immediate (and at times automatic) decisions. In some cases, this is useful as it frees up thinking space to focus on other tasks. In other cases, trust-as-a-heuristic, can be problematic.
