Cyber-Security Risks Beyond Technology: Human Factor

David Moon, Chief Executive Officer @ Tripath Media participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Cyber-Security Risks Beyond Technology: Human Factor”.



Cyberspace has brought complex, chaotic, and challenging time for each nation: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS). As cyberspace gets deeply embedded across geospace and space, its crowded interconnections with each component of a nation: that is its government, industries, organizations and academia are catching nations off guard. These interconnections and inter-dependencies are raising an important question, on whether our understanding of security risks is adequate and whether our current security risk management framework, tools, technologies, approach and processes are effective in managing the integrated security risks of NGIOA in CGS.

Across nations, there is an intense effort going on to manage the security risks of cyberspace. Significant investment is pouring into developing technology that can secure cyberspace. While hi-tech efforts in technology development and deployment are on-going- (and in spite of all the advances in cyber-security technology), most entities across NGIOA are still faced with complex security risks – that cannot be reduced or eliminated.

As the cyberspace shifts the security landscape rapidly, the traditional security perimeters that technology leaders relied upon are becoming outdated, fragmented and ineffective due to the complex inter-dependencies cyberspace brings to NGIOA in geospace and space. These complex inter-dependencies raise critical security risks that vary by enterprise, by industry, by leadership, by approach and much more. So what are these security risks that go beyond Technology? How does it impact you, your entity, your industry and nation?

While it is not the scope of this “Risk Roundup” to evaluate each and every non-technology security risk facing entities across NGIOA, today’s dialogue will address only the “Human Factor”. We will address other non-technology risks in future.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government,  industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
