Designing a Cyber Risk Strategy for the Human Operating System (HumanOS)

This week, we’re introducing the first Toffler Associates video blog. Team members Masseh Tahiry and Caitlin Durkovich discuss future threats that will impact cybersecurity. They discuss the rapid evolution of tech, the changing character of warfare, and increased tension at almost every strata of society – from the multinational, regional, and national levels to the local (including those on the seams, like criminal syndicates and insurgent groups) – and yet, none of these threats compare to the threat of humans. Watch the video to see why humans are the most pressing threat, and how we should approach cybersecurity with a human-centric focus.
