Insurers Must Collaborate on Cyber

We are living in the accumulated aftermath of the countless cyber breaches that, since the turn of the century, have cost the global economy over $2 trillion. We are in the untenable situation where insurers find it nearly impossible to provide security for their insureds while safeguarding their own profitability. However, the destruction and loss […]

Surveying Wreckage of Cybersecurity

On Jan. 1, 2001, it would have been beyond human ability to predict, with precision, most of what has happened in the first 20 years of the 21st century. Certainly, no one was expecting that following September to dramatically alter the geopolitical landscape of the world, nor was anyone expecting the U.S. to use UAVs […]

Clarity of History Can Reduce Cyber Risk

It was at that point that insurance companies started to be formed to combat one of the oldest enemies of civilization: untamed fire. Moreover, fire insurance companies […]

Many books and movies like iRobot and Her have analyzed various potential impacts of that intersection, but the complete intersection will actually be that of humanity, robots and liability.

The Costs of Inaction on Encryption

Alarm systems have a long and varied history — from geese in ancient Rome, to noise makers that announced the presence of an intruder, to present-day electronic sensors and lasers. Originally, the creation of alarms was driven by the psychological need all humans have to establish a safe environment for themselves. Today, that same need […]

The Questions That Aren’t Being Asked

In Aldous Huxley’s 1931 novel Brave New World, many original ideas were posited about a futuristic society. Two of those ideas, appearing in our present, involve eugenics and an ever-increasing reliance on technology. Techniques like CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) to genetically engineer a human embryo, and technological advances like self-driving vehicles, could […]
