Andy Ellis on Risk Assessment
Andy Ellis, the CSO of Akamai, gave a great talk about the psychology of risk at the Business of Software conference this year.
I’ve written about this before.
One quote of mine: “The problem is our brains are intuitively suited to the sorts of risk management decisions endemic to living in small family groups in the East African highlands in 100,000 BC, and not to living in the New York City of 2008.”
