Business and Security
Businesses today cannot ignore the broader social, political and economic context in which they operate. The vitality of business operations, large and small, local and multinational, depends on a complex web of relationships with partners, suppliers, distributors, clients and employees, all of which are vulnerable in the case of an emergency or attack. The Business and Security node examines how business, industry and commerce are affected by contemporary and emerging security challenges, including how to identify, mitigate and manage potential threats, both in home-country and international operations. Addressing areas such as security planning and risk management, business continuity and emergency management, corporate liability, fraud and corruption, this node has particular practical and contemporary relevance.
