Board Oversight of Disruptive Risks: Cyber, Crypto, and New Business Models

April 24, 2018
Tampa, FL



Directors Oversight of Disruptive Risks (Cyber, Crypto, and Disruptive Economies)

All organizations are facing business model disruption, and directors play an important role in understanding the nature, pace, and impacts of disruptive risks, including rapid innovations in technology (e.g., robotics, digitalization), new forms of supply chains (e.g., Amazon), or even fundamental changes in the way business is conducted (e.g., blockchain, crypto currencies). While disruption can add to risks such as cyber security, it also presents organizations with significant opportunity to maintain or add to shareholder value. NACD Florida, Protiviti, and Akerman are pleased to present a high-impact discussion to help directors identify and govern the ways their organizations deal with disruptive risks.

Join experts in innovative strategies, public policy, and cyber as they provide perspective on ways directors can help take advantage of opportunities in emerging areas of digitalization, supply chain/blockchain, and cyber risk management and how these fast-paced risks can be managed along the way. Please join us and an impressive panel of experts at the spectacular Pavilion at Steinbrenner Field for this event. A catered reception will follow the program.
