The Risk & Security Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for IT, risk, and security leaders in Australia & New Zealand

Hosted by Dataminr, the Risk & Security Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable was set up to offer an intimate online forum for IT, risk, & security leaders from prominent firms in Australia & New Zealand. 

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

Defining and Responding to the “Next Normal”

In this complex and uncertain world, organisations need to shift the way they analyse, look at and manage risk, as well as rethink what business resilience will mean in the future. As companies start planning for the “next normal”, organisations must ensure they have the right information at hand to make effective and meaningful decisions along the way. 

  • How have the local and global risk landscapes changed over the past 6-12 months?
  • What will returning to work and the “next normal” actually look like?
  • How can organisations understand the breadth and depth of ‘Systemic Risk’, including geopolitical uncertainty, regulatory developments and business disruption?
  • How can businesses obtain real-time information, and how can this help inform risk-management and business-resilience strategies?
