Cybersecurity Whack-a-Mole In the Boardroom

The growing use and reliance on complex digital business systems is exacerbating cyber-risk, a systemic risk to your business, one which can result in serious, perhaps even existential damage.

The Chinese IoT Threat: CBS News Features OODA Network Expert Charlie Parton

We recently featured a three-part series based on a report by Charlie Parton and Dr.  Samantha Hoffman.  In the shadow of the Chinese surveillance balloon/national security threat which played out last week, CBS News Weekender picked up the OODA Loop series based on the report – and arranged an interview with Charlie to discuss the details of the white paper: “A new OODA report warns that Chinese-manufactured microchips embedded in smart devices such as fridges and laptops pose a threat to U.K. national security. The author of the report, Charles Parton, joined CBS News to discuss how such microchips could also impact U.S. national security.”
