Talking about levels of enterprise and risk, Hart stated that accepting a risk doesn't mean it's going to happen," expanding "it means if the thing happens, you accepted the risk and will take the steps to mitigate that risk." Hart explained that while cloud data and technology is an extremely useful advancement, it can also be used for damaging purposes, saying "when the sword cuts, it cuts both ways."
