Risk in a Real-Time World: Retail Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for senior executives responsible for risk in the retail sector across the EMEA region

This roundtable explored the themes pertinent to the retail sector while navigating the “New Norm”. Seen through the lens of COVID-19, the group addressed topics such as health and safety, brand and reputation, hyperlocal risk and e-commerce. We discussed how access to real-time data can enable a structured response that will enhance business resilience.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

Retail Risk Management Best Practices

The 2020 global pandemic has forever changed the way people work, relax, and live their lives. In the retail world, this dramatic shift has called for a rethinking of previous risk management strategies.

In this new reality, a two-fold approach to risk management becomes necessary to insulate businesses from the negative consequences of predictable events and ensure their continuous growth. Forward-thinking retailers are now using real-time information to make better-informed decisions. Whether it’s critical infrastructure, asset protection, employee and customer safety, or cyber threats, retailers must be able to react in real-time to keep pace and remain agile.

  • What lessons have retailers learned concerning risk management over the past year?
  • How can companies best leverage real-time information in times of crisis?
  • What are the necessary steps to ensure continuous protection from both physical and virtual threats?
