Are you a leader or a manager?

The debate about the differences between leadership and managerial ability is perhaps as old as the time these two qualities came to be identified. There is a lot of discussion about what leadership and management are, which of these is more suited for organizations, whether one of these is born and the other made, and so on.

Parents Beware of Finstagram

You have surely heard of Instagram, the photo sharing social network, but what about “Finstagram?” If you are like most parents, you have rules about the social media practices of your kids. However, once you learn about Finstagram, those might all go out the window.

When you combine the words “fake” and “Instagram,” you get Finstagram. Essentially, these are fake, or alternative, Instagram accounts that are created by teens, for the most part. These accounts can be…

Dead is the 3LoD!

We have to move on from this 3-lines-thinking, it is outdated, every employee is a risk manager and must manage the risks associated with his or her job on a daily basis, in an effective Risk Culture there is no need to "defend" it is just optimised risk management and taking more risk to get more reward and build sustainable competitive advantage. Those who are not good or do nothing to build an effective Risk Culture, will just be exploited by those who are better.

On the risk analytics side (lets not call it machine learning) we have initiated a compilation of available frameworks at the Open Risk Manual and welcome any further…

Study Shows Millennials Choose Convenience Over Security

To those of us consider Tom Cruise the movie star of our day or even Grunge as the music we grew up with, looking at millennials, and the way they view life, is fascinating. These “kids” or young adults, many are brilliant. They really do define “disruption”.

However, that doesn’t mean that this tech savvy generation is always right. In fact, a new study shows just the opposite when it comes to internet safety. Though, they can also teach us a few things and are…

Incident Prevention, Not Incident Recovery: How to Preserve Your Company’s Reputation

For companies who care about their reputation, risk management is a must.  Said best by Warren Buffet, "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.” 

Building and preserving that reputation through proactive incident prevention must be a top priority. Post-scandal PR efforts, and other attempts to recoup losses, prevent only a fraction of the long-term damage. 

A company’s…

Hey Kids, the Internet is FOS

The internet is a beautiful place. It is the way we communicate, the way we create, and the biggest business platform that has ever been generated. However, it is also a hazard, as anyone can put anything on it, and it’s extremely difficult to tell fact from fiction…especially if you are a kid.

A Stanford study looked at the ability, or inability in this case, of almost 8,000 students to tell fake news stories from real ones. The results, to be blunt, are terrible.…
