    Make it make sense... Covid-19 2.0?

    Make it make sense... Covid-19 2.0?

    So, COVID-19 cases in the US are rising. A second wave is possible. And with that potential second wave, comes a second wave of COVID-19’s partner in crime: panic porn. Breathless social media posts. People cancelling vacations. Politicians calling for additional lockdowns.

    And while I understand that the memories of 2020 are still fresh. And that it is natural to feel fear as a result.

    I think it’s important that we all understand what is really happening. It’s important to understand that what is happening isn’t surprising, and that it aligns with the trajectory of all pandemics. And I think it’s important that we zero in on what we should be doing to mitigate threat, rather than surrendering ourselves to fear.

    Masters of the Risk Universe... Female Bootleggers

    Masters of the Risk Universe... Female Bootleggers

    Coming up this week, the story of a group of unlikely risk masters. Female Bootleggers.

    When the US ratified the 18th amendment to its Constitution in January of 2019. A move that effectively banned the manufacture, sale and transportation of alcoholic beverages. It unknowingly, or at least unintentionally, created opportunity for bootleggers to ply their trade to customers for whom alcohol was a non-elastic necessity.

    The usual shady characters – including organized crime groups – all stepped into the breach created by the 18th amendment. As did women. Ordinary. Everyday. Previously law abiding women.

    On this week’s episode, I look at four legendary female bootleggers. How they did what they did.

    Why they did what they did. And I explore the risk lessons we ought to learn from Masters of the Bootlegging Risk Universe.

    Whatever happened to...Compaq

    Whatever happened to...Compaq

    Coming up on this week’s episode, disrupting is all fun and games. Until such time as you become the disrupted.

    As we see with the rise. And fall. Of Compaq computers.

    Compaq - the brainchild of three friends from Houston, Texas – disrupted the computer hardware market by, initially, boldly playing in IBM’s slipstream. And subsequently, transforming and mastering what was, at the time, the burgeoning value chain that was computer hardware manufacturing. Creating for itself multiple competitive advantages.

    And then, Compaq became the disrupted. Its momentum had the kibosh put it. It’s competitive advantages – and there were a few - eroded. To the point that we now ask today, whatever happened to Compaq.

    On this week’s episode of the Risktory Podcast, we find out. Tip: it’s exactly what you think happened.

    How they did it... McAfee

    How they did it... McAfee

    You’ve heard me talk all year about the agnostic nature of risk management, as a discipline. As recently as three weeks ago, in an episode exploring the 1986 Insider Trading Scandal, I talked at some length about how our discipline. As a method of navigating the unknown. It doesn’t have a moral compass.

    It can be used for the purposes of good. And for the purposes of the not so good.

    Enter John McAfee. The controversial and problematic creator of McAfee Anti-Virus Software, who – just last week – passed away while awaiting extradition from Spain to the US to face charges of fraud and money laundering.

    McAfee created a whole industry rooted and nested, in the fear of the unknown. He saw opportunity in threat, expertly wielding our discipline to make himself a multi-millionaire.

    On this week’s episode, I explore how McAfee did it.

    Make it make sense... the JBS Holdings Hack

    Make it make sense... the JBS Holdings Hack

    Coming up today, let’s call this week’s episode a Viewers Choice episode, given so many of you reached out to me to cover it. This week, I will make sense of the JBS Holdings Hack.

    I’ve always said that the 2016 Crash Override hack. Which, for those not familiar, was the successful infiltration, and shut down, of Kiev’s electrical grid in the dead of a frigid Ukranian winter. I’ve always said that the 2016 Crash Override hack. It wasn’t the main event. It was a preview of what was to come.

    What we are seeing with the hacks of both the Colonial Pipeline and JBS Holdings is a holus bolus full frontal attack on critical infrastructure globally, with the aim of: a) making hackers money; and b) demonstrating the fragility, or perhaps more accurately, the vulnerability, of critical infrastructure.

    This is Fight Club, except it’s not fiction.
