Speaking of geopolitics, it is certainly fun to learn about them. They, much like cybersecurity are quite a dynamic topic. In our software platform at MeasuredRisk, we built a way to identify and map geopolitics to a business. In the early days we did an integration that enabled us to take in almost every written piece of news on the internet, updated every 15 minutes and parse it for risk determination. Very cool stuff. That said, there is so much we don’t know about in the world that we want to learn more about. Every occurrence has many actors, motivations, impacts and dependencies. Unraveling that web of interconnected happenings is like playing the game Clue. Forensics are valuable for training data, but the world works in mysterious ways. Outlier and Black Swans happen. “Flipping” forensics into the future, has always been something we have been working on at MeasuredRisk.
The world is more connected than most of us realize. With the explosion of IoT, we are often one click from any device in the world, at any moment in time. The sheer volume of global sensor traffic is astounding and continuing to grow beyond what anyone had anticipated. As a result, it presents a great opportunity to learn more about the world, and more about what’s happening, literally right now. The rate of technology acceleration is really mind blowing, and exciting at the same time.
