What is the future of business in the rapidly digitising world? The recent global pandemic has fast-forwarded change, which has opened considerable opportunities for businesses to make a profit; at the same time, the potential for crisis has also increased. The reality is that the evolving threat matrix of the digital economy is the convergence of many factors. The factors include cyber security, data management, weaponised information in the media, external attacks on supply chains, and rapid political and policy changes.
Attacks on corporations and their leadership often take the form of weaponised information attacks in the media. These communications often fall on the heads of corporate communicators. But, in fact, it goes deeper than the job scope and paygrade of communications teams. The importance of understanding these advanced business threats now falls on the shoulders of board members and C-suites.
Critical questions we will confront during the discussion are:
- How to cascade effective strategy and policy into actionable projects that drive digital resilience.
- The interconnectedness of strategy and policy, and how to tackle the gaps in organisations or frameworks that could lead to a crisis.
- How to recover from a crisis that played in the media or social media.
Join us in this exclusive roundtable as we discuss ways to address weaponised information in the media and how business leaders can mitigate the threats that could lead to a crisis.
