Keynote:The Murmuration of the Starlings: What biology teaches us about cyber risk.

This is a follow up to the presentation John Donald made called “35 views of cyber risk” at the virtual Net Diligence event in 2020. Here, in Part Two of the 35 Views series, he focusses on the concepts from life sciences that help us to understand and model cyber risk. Using a murmuration of starlings as the central metaphor for systemic risk, he shows how we should look to  biology rather than physics to comprehend cyber – the science of animate objects rather than inanimate ones.
