"Preparation is a necessary prerequisite to good luck. Good luck occurs when an opportunity presents itself and you are prepared with knowledge, experience, and risk-taking ability. You need knowledge to recognize opportunities among the noise; you need experience to identify the patterns these opportunities often form; and you need the courage to take a chance. What people often say is good luck is simply a good choice based on evidence and risk."

--Ray Rothrock, chairman and CEO of cybersecurity resiliency company RedSeal.
