Tomversations: Episode 7 – Security and Risk Aversion

Is your security team really the Department of “No”? Are they the kind of people that never take any risks? In this episode, we explore a little bit behind this idea that security teams are risk averse and how we might be able to combat those tendencies. You may find out that a little bit of prevention and education can go a long way to helping your teams figure out that risk isn’t the end of times. Also, you can learn a lot about risk and how it is handled in practice by looking into the world of finance. They may not be able to completely eliminate risk, but they can reduce the blast radius to keep the world from falling apart.
