On 11th March 2011, a 8.9 magnitude tremor hit 400km north-east of Tokyo, causing a tsunami along the north-eastern coast of Japan and resulting in a massive loss of lives and infrastructure damage - including damage to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The consequent release of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has created numerous risks for the Japanese population including food and beverage irradiation concerns, home and workplace energy supply issues, contaminated debris disposal and the continuing risk of hydrogen explosions from the site.

  • Security 2018
  • Cyber!

Walk-in attacks by terrorists with guns, improvised explosive devices, knives & other weapons are happening in 2018. France has started to suffer significant threats from attacks directed at police using vehicles & guns.  Heroic police actions to protect the public have united the country.  In England, an attack using Novichok nerve agent on the former Russian Spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury  has increased business sensitivity to international tensions & unconventional weapons.

Regulatory compliance with GDPR will be the top challenge for companies in 2018.   Nation State, organised crime and individual hostile cyber actors can be mitigated by well-trained workforce teams & confident, adaptive & innovative leaders. Cloud & third party providers & insider threats add to the regulatory burden on business. When one mastermind criminal can take a billion dollars out of the financial sector in four years the scale of business losses to poor performance in cyber operations is obvious.  Energy, banking and transportation are high risk targets and organisations with static unchanging security practices are possible consequential victims.
