The Retail Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for senior executives in the Retail, Grocery and Fast Food across Australia and New Zealand

This virtual roundtable explored how to strengthen an organisation’s security posture to protect its people, customers, brand, and revenue. Executives in leading retail, grocery, and fast food companies across Australia had the opportunity to learn more about the topic in the company of their senior peers.

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

Retail risk in a real-time world

The 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.

Forward-thinking retailers are now using real-time information to make better-informed decisions. Whether in 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 are leading security teams leveraging AI and real-time information to drive a best practice crisis response?
  • What are the necessary steps to ensure continuous protection from both physical and virtual threats?
