It makes interesting reading - there are quite a few systems-related risks, for instance: Rail Accident, Aviation Collision, Malicious Drone Incident and Deliberate disruption of UK space systems and space-based services. It is probably worth considering if your risk register should include some of these wider risks...

Data Safety Seminar (Nov 19)

Data Safety SeminarData can directly cause systems to behave anomalously (e.g. sensor data in the Boeing 737 MAX) or it can cause humans to take inappropriate actions leading to harm. On November 14th in London the event "Data Safety Evolution" was an opportunity to hear about the issues data can cause in safety systems and look at developments in the area. It will be useful for safety engineers and safety managers, across any sector that uses data in a safety context, i.e. most of us! Full details at:
