In supply-chain and operational resilience discussions we focus on areas within our span of control, whilst ripple impacts are felt from further. How we understand effects and engage those in our ecosystem shapes response to things not in our control.
In decisions, we choose to keep the steady state/ status quo as it is the tenable option. Until it's not.
There are three core questions underlying intelligence reports. Answering these questions creates concise, direct communication whilst retaining the relevance to the original observation and audience.
A brief treatise on the thoughts behind the types of jewelry made in the ways I make them.
Public sector concepts of how organisations help mitigate systemic risk - in this example, cyber defence for their sector - are difficult to convey. Since organisational interpretations of the concept vary, complementary implementation challenges abound; usually ending with highly glossed fanfare masking minimal results. Here is the first set of considerations for organisations to become part of the solution.
Not only are cyber criminals becoming bolder in their power projection, they are also diversifying into non-monetary causes. Whilst only a pebble risk for now, the potential for criminal-turned-hacktivist lends a rather disturbing picture for anyone considering the threat.
In the shadow of Ukraine/Russia, a greater threat to our digital world unfolds in Costa Rica. Looking at prior shifts in the cyber threat landscape helps clearly define the current pebble and why the avalanche it creates will cause greater issues to the global ecosystem.
First Rule and Past Tense are basic mental frameworks to help us understand life via two sides of the same coin – mortality. On the one hand is a biological imperative to perpetuate life as we know it. The other holds recognition of needs beyond the self, when we are taken out of the equation. Together these two offer useful perspective on decision-making. Past Tense is a periodic exercise uncovering existing connections sans us.

Organisations entering or exiting a market/ region have a number of constraints and obstacles to navigate. Often overlooked are ones related to cyber - both from legal and dependency perspectives. Here is what to consider.
