IFSEC Global Podcast: Episode 6 – Improving decision making in high-risk scenarios and the concept of Presilience

In episode 6 of the IFSEC Global Security in Focus podcast, we hear from Dr Gavriel Schneider, CEO of Risk 2 Solution, as he explains ‘Presilience’ and how security professionals can improve their decision making in high-risk scenarios. Dr Gav provides listeners with a grounding in the difference between resilience and Presilience, a concept he has developed over many years of frontline experience and academic research in the security sector.

Why do humans make bad decisions? And, how can security teams integrate risk and resilience to put the emphasis on the individuals managing it themselves? Have a listen to this episode to find out! As always, Dr Gav also gives us his view on some of the key trends in the security sector at present – touching upon the growth of the cyber threat, how to manage integrated risk, and the impact of lockdowns around the world.

Dr Gavriel (Gav) Schneider is a leader in the field of human based risk management and the psychology of risk. He is the creator of the concept of Presilience which enabled his business to be recognised as among Australia’s most innovative companies in the prestigious AFR innovation awards 2021.
