How to master risk

Retired four-star general Stan McChrystal has lived a life associated with the deadly risks of combat; he has seen how individuals and organisations, too often and to great costs, fail to mitigate risk. Why? Because they focus on the probability of something happening instead of the interface by which it can be managed. In conversation with Andrew Hill, the FT senior business writer, McChrystal explains how to build and strengthen your organisation's risk management and what it takes to master risk to your and your business’s advantage. Drawing on practical examples ranging from military history to the business world, he shares ten dimensions of control that you can use to detect, assess and respond to risk.

The rise in cyber attacks

Sir Alex Younger, former MI6 chief, discusses with John Thornhill, the FT’s innovation editor, how organisations can protect themselves against cyber attacks and how governments and the private sector can work together to build resilient

cyber strategies.
