  • Bertram Forer’s Test • You have a great need for other people to like and admire you. You have a tendency to be critical of yourself. You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage. While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them. Your sexual adjustment has presented problems for you. Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You pride yourself as an independent thinker and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. You have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be pretty unrealistic. Security is one of your major goals in life. • 80% “Accurate”
  • Real Predictive Analytics
  • Big Banks and Big Data

  • New Security “Pre-Checked” List HJCFF7/TSA PRECHK
  • Prediction? ABSOLUTELY!!! 85-87 % Accurate—Even the Local Guys!
  • Numbers, Numbers, Everywhere 2.5 quintillion* bytes of data are created daily. 90% of data in the world today has been created in the last two years. *25,000,000,000,000,000,000
  • TONS of Data Today: •Audits •Inspections •Observations Tomorrow •Gas •Telemetry •ALSS •Near-Miss Photos and Free Text
  • Leading Indicator • Any Event, Behavior, Hazard or Condition that happens BEFORE someone gets hurt.
  • The Old Way
  • What do you DO with It All? “The boss needs that safety report by 3:00. I told him you can have it for him by 1:00”
