Conference on ‘Doing Business Amidst New Threats’

Over the years, the PROTECT conference series had anticipated the prevailing security threats for the year – from terrorism – to pandemics – to global financial crisis – to natural disasters – to cyber attacks – to disruptive technologies. We discussed Crisis Management and Business Continuity to overcome these threats.

In 2020, PROTECT will focus on Business Resiliency – the Next Evolutionary Phase of Business Continuity. We will take a perspective different from the traditional organizational response to such disruptive developments.

We will work towards operationalizing business resiliency, best achieved by involving within each organization those responsible for corporate strategy, operations, business systems, governance structure and decision-support. This way, all parties involved can ensure strategic objectives are achieved even in the face of disruption to business.
