Security touches every aspect of the human experience, in sometimes subtle yet profound ways. We explore security from a strategic and interdisciplinary perspective.

About GIPS

Global Insights in Professional Security is a nuanced yet rollicking look at the field and profession of security, particularly how security intersects with other disciplines and phenomena. Among others, those disciplines include law, business, media, geopolitics, economics, technology, leadership, and business continuity. The first podcasts have covered leadership (emotional intelligence), technology (artificial intelligence), media (inside the McMillion$ fraud and the HBO series that documented it), and IT/business continuity (security in a COVID world).
