Jack Jones on Risk Management
I really enjoyed watching the podcast version of a talk that Jack Jones gave at Purdue, “Shifting focus: Aligning security with risk management.”
I liked the opener, about what it’s like for executives to talk to security professionals, and the difference between what might happen and what’s likely to happen. The screenshot is from a discussion of how to play Russian Roulette.
I also like the way he critiqued best practices (you’ll have to watch). It’s a little hard for me to assess his risk management methodology from a podcast, but it’s a very worthwhile 45 minutes.
(Now only if he had some Kandinsky in there, I’d have no doubt that the Risk Management Insight
Institute, which Jack heads, is part of what we call the “New School.”)
