This was recorded in early February. I feel it’s important to balance out the theoretical side of things and on-the-ground perspective, so I brought in Kris Coleman, a former CIA Officer and FBI Special Agent. We get into some practical and frank ideas around what we need to do to cultivate resiliency individually and as a community, combating misinformation (spoiler: always check your sources and avoid echo chambers), and how massively important awareness is.

Kris Coleman is Founder, President, and CEO of Red Five, where he supports private families, family offices, corporations, and security teams with bespoke solutions to ensure their privacy, security, and resiliency. Before founding Red Five, Coleman served as a CIA Officer where he conducted threat and vulnerability assessments and developed programmatic approaches to counterterrorism and law enforcement for countries across the world. Coleman also served as an FBI Special Agent and a member of the FBI’s enhanced SWAT Team. Coleman holds a B.S. in Public Administration from the University of Arkansas. With extensive experience providing state-of-the-art security and protective intelligence services, he helps individuals be prepared and resilient through uncertain times and unexpected crises.
