The past decade has shown us a world shaped by enormous upheaval and uncertainty. In just the past year, we’ve seen organized terrorist attacks in France, Lebanon, Kenya, and other countries; wholesale regime change in many countries, and a new global threat in the form of ISIS. We’re also faced with a highly volatile economic climate and the rise of nation-state driven cyberwarfare.
How should you position your company to be prepared for these risks? How can you stay informed?
In this discussion, we’ll take a look at the global risk landscape beginning with a macro view of the globe before highlighting several specific threats covering both geographic and domain specific risk. Topics discussed will include global terrorism, travel risk and security, intelligence, cyber threats, economic espionage, and other current global risk challenges. In addition, we’ll discuss how to stay informed through government sources, open source intelligence, and proprietary resources.
Attendees will leave with a strong understanding of the current global risk landscape and methods on staying ahead of the curve on emerging threats.
- We live in highly volatile and uncertain times.
- There are a number of open source resources available.
- Staying informed on global risks is a critical need.
