I find error making and error reduction to be very interesting. People may not always realize that it is very easy to make an error. Care must be taken to prevent errors. I have been making the effort to reduce errors since I was about 8 years old when my teacher reported that I made careless mistakes in mathematics. My father told me to check and double check my paper before turning it in to reduce careless mistakes.
I know reducing errors is important for (and falls under) data quality. Data quality was one of my areas/topics. Years ago, I wrote an article on data quality, user interface design, and software requirements.

I found it interesting that the paper looked at how to avoid medical errors in the first place. There is also a different definition of threat. A threat is defined as, "any external influence or effect that increases the likelihood for an error to occur." Here is the article:
