Jack Carraway on how to predict hybrid threats and improve business resilience

Modern enterprise leaders are looking for the most reliable advice on how to tackle cyber-physical risks. We sat down with Jack Carraway to understand the new challenges that security leaders face and the best way to move towards a more secure and resilient future. With a keen sense of risk management, honed in both the military and corporate worlds, he offers a gritty, straightforward perspective.

In the last few years, the world has become increasingly unsafe, unstable, and unpredictable. Businesses are facing a host of risks in multiple areas. Supply chains are broken. Political pressures are mounting. Economic stressors are crushing. Alongside these, cyber risks also threaten to spill into the physical side of business and paralyse operations.

How can security teams stay ahead of all these threats and ensure business continuity while protecting their employees and reputation?

In this episode, Jack offers a holistic solution. After a snapshot view of his career, he guides us through the trickiest areas of security operations: Why are threats much harder to contain in a hyperconnected world? How does a seemingly distant event affect you? What can enterprises do to track events in real-time and mitigate the risks inherent in them?
