Re: Don't they do risk management any more?
"Don't airports, the Department for Transport, National Security Council etc, employ people whose job is to identify risks and develop plans for dealing with them?"
In the days when I used to go to Risk Management meetings (safety critical control systems), the only risks that were allowed to be discussed were the ones that the management wanted to be discussed, ie trivial ones.
Ethics? Somewhere a long way from here, maybe.
