As a world we’re vulnerable to malefactors with a plethora of ways to create havoc and uncertainty in our lives and businesses. On the other hand, as a world, we’ve also elected to be completely plugged in and interconnected. There’s an on-going love affair with instant connectivity to anyone, anywhere, at anytime, using any device. While we may still try to erect walls around ourselves, these walls will also have lots of windows where trouble can creep in. How do we reconcile our mania for connectivity with the desire to live in a safer world?
