with Juliette Kayyem

Books and teachings have emphasized the value of risk prevention to no end. But in a world where threats evolve and plans fall through, how are we handling the problems that are past preventing? With large-scale cyberattacks assuming a larger presence in the mainstream zeitgeist, we’re seeing the real-time consequences of best-case assumptions — and we’re understanding that no industry is unaffected.

Borne from her extensive background in federal and state crisis management, Juliette Kayyem’s “assume the boom” approach takes a holistic look at cybersecurity. Rather than over-indexing on probability or prevention, organizations can minimize damage by treating the highest consequences as inevitabilities.

We spend so much time talking about ‘why’, about the past…or we talk about the future, in terms of resiliency and building better. But there’s this ‘now’ moment, where I’ve focused my efforts on assuming the breach and moving from there.

Juliette joins Zero Fluff to share her vision for consequence minimization as a forward-thinking solution to ongoing disasters. Through this mindset, she empowers industry leaders to apply security resources in a more meaningful and realistic way.
