The world is increasingly interconnected through the media, transport, trade, social and religious networks and through politics. Operating internationally in some ways has never been easier; transport links and modern communications offer hyper mobility and there is more information available to help reduce uncertainty. But organisations are increasingly sensitive to risks; political, financial, operational and reputational. So security risk management is becoming more important as a source of competitive advantage. This presentation considers how risks to international organisations are developing, how technology is transforming our work, and how security risk management may look in the future.
