OODA Network Member Junaid Islam on Global Cyber Risk, Weaponized IT Supply Chains, and The Enterprise

In a series of posts entitled Autonomous Everything, we are exploring automation in all its technological forms, including legacy working assumptions about the term itself. Autonomy is not just about the future of the automobile and personal mobility but includes a broad autonomous future in areas such as Security Automation, Automation and the Workforce, Automation – or Augmentation – of the Workforce, and Automation of AI/Machine Learning Training Models and Industry Standardization.  

Recently, we checked in with OODA Network Member Junaid Islam, a well-known cybersecurity expert, about “Automated Continuous Threat Testing”. We continue this conversation to discuss the increased cyber risks Enterprises face due to the current geo-political environment and actions they should take to mitigate cybersecurity and operational risk.
