Critical Thinking for the Protector | Dr Treston Wheat

You might have overhead a few UHNW business conversations in your time but has it given you real 'intelligence'? This week we are very pleased to welcome Dr Treston Wheat, Red-teamer and Critical Thinker to the Circuit Magazine Podcast to ask:

  • What is critical thinking and aren't protectors already using it?
  • Does every protector have to become an analyst or should each team have 'the' analyst embedded?
  • What is the difference between studying for a Masters to enrich your life experience and being able to directly apply analytics skills in your protection career?
  • Is there such a thing as 'ground truth'?
  • Are protectors more sceptical having seen some of the 'worst' of humanity in their career?
