To date, the LHC has not observed indications of structure beyond the Standard Model (BSM) of particle physics. Moreover the measured properties of the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson hint at an underlying simplicity of the model without such new physics. This has led to a re-evaluation of the hierarchy problem on which much of our faith in BSM physics rests. In this talk I will review these issues and their implications for BSM discovery at the LHC.
