Our Mission is to Help Organizations Survive a Collapse

“The CEO should regard his position #1 as the Chief Risk Officer.  Now, you have a lot of other functions too, but you should wake up every morning and think about ‘is this place built to take everything?'” - Warren Buffett

"So the world is much more correlated than we give credit to. And so we see more of what Nassim Taleb calls "black swan events" - rare events happen more often than they should because the world is more correlated."


Richard Thaler,

American Economist

"People who think they know what is going to happen next are fools. Surprises - or what the brilliant author Nassim Taleb calls 'Black Swans' - are inevitable. Some are likely to be desperately unpleasant,  too"

Martin Wolf,

Economics Journalist

Financial Times

"The impact of an EMP attack in the US would be catastrophic. Experts argue that the US is incredibly ill-prepared for such an event, with former CIA director James Woolsey calling it “one of the greatest national vulnerabilities.” 

Ariel Cohen,

Global Risk Expert
