  2. 2. Using Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) to Execute Your Strategy - OKRs were created to target strategy execution. They answer the question of, “How do I translate the big-picture, long-term strategy into actionable, short-term work for my team?” To be specific: - Objectives — What do we want to achieve by the end of the strategic timeframe to get us closer to our Vision? Objectives are the “What”. - Key Results — What business outcomes can we measure that show progress toward our Objectives? Key Results are the “How”.

On top of that, the continuing explosion of the amount of data and growing concerns over privacy and data ownership keep making the task harder. The author offers three principles to help companies achieve their goals.
  6. 6. The Future of Cyber Insurance - Aside from raising premiums, some insurers are reducing coverage for specific industries, including education and healthcare, limiting how much cyber coverage they offer or restricting contract terms.
