  • A behavioral change is required to fight cyberattacks. FBI Director Chris Wray recently called for a coordinated approach across Government agencies, the private sector and American citizens to combat cyberattacks.

  • Buckle-up because price inflation isn’t going anywhere. At least not until the Fed takes interest rate action. Read our recent article that describes why we have persistent price inflation HERE.
  • Existing Auto OEMs will dominate the EV space (the pretenders are not long for this world). However, the type of executive that will become the new guard of Auto OEM CEOs is changing. We believe the Automotive OEM space will shift to naming executives with Technology chops to the CEO chair as Ferrari (RACE), did this week. Ferrari recruited former STMicro (STM) executive Benedetto Vigna to become CEO effective September 2021. The Software industry has experienced a similar evolution over the past 20 years as Software CEOs are increasingly executives with deep technical backgrounds.
