Killing “Chicken Little”: Measure and eliminate risk through forecasting.
It’s time for practitioners of our discipline to recognize that rigid methods towards risk management are not flexible enough to prioritize and tackle complex breach scenarios. We are losing, and need to start taking risks in process.
We need flexible, powerful, and cost efficient measurement methods to attack problem with. We need more experimentation towards new methods and more transparency into their results. I’m excited about probabilistic methods and how forecasting fits into it.

BBC News - Is driving more dangerous than flying through ash?
The problem is that people are generally terrible at making rational decisions about risk.
To take just one of many examples, many Americans avoided planes after 9/11 and travelled by road instead. As a result, a team of researchers from Cornell University estimated there were at least 1,200 more deaths on America's roads than there would have been.

Could Women Have Prevented a Financial Crisis? - Freakonomics Blog -
The economist Anne Sibert hypothesizes that gender inequality in the finance industry is partly to blame for the financial crisis. She points to evidence that men are less risk-averse in financial decision-making, more overconfident, and perhaps susceptible to testosterone-fueled feedback loops in asset bubbles. She concludes, “If — as the research may suggest — men are less risk-averse than women, then a work group composed primarily of men (or primarily of women) may be a particularly bad idea.” HAHAHAHA
