In 2022, the world of business will have to fend for itself against an aggressive array of risks, as governments recede from a rapidly evolving threat landscape. For companies looking for opportunity for growth, red and amber lights continue to flash on the risk register.

This briefing will cover the top risks for 2022 from Control Risks’ annual forecast of business risks – RiskMap – and assess the impact on businesses as they tackle: 

the security challenges posed by the growing number of fragile and dysfunctional states
freshly fragmented terrorist threat
the proliferation of hostile cyber threat actors
management of the climate crisis 
reputational risk of inadequate responses to ESG issues.  

Our speaker will explore these risks in the context of how business can navigate through this period of transition and debate on how far you may have to go.
