Please join me for my session Can Your Reputation Survive 4IR?.The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) represents previously unimaginable ways in which disruptive technology becomes embedded in global supply chains, societies and the human body. As a result of this rapid and dramatic change, organizations are facing unprecedented threats and risk events that are having a profound impact on their ability to do business. Many organizations today are unprepared for the rapid rate of change, unprecedented risk scenarios and the required governance activities to survive in the 4IR.
This session will review a series of mini case studies from recent and ongoing events that severely compromised and in some cases destroyed the organization's reputation. We will review organizational traits that historically have led to catastrophic risk events and how the Risk Hurricane concept can be used to identify potentially damaging organizational traits. We will examine and discuss techniques, governance activities and organizational structures that can help protect an organization’s reputation in the 4IR. To cope with the unprecedented threats in the 4IR, we must think differently about risk. The session will discuss fuzzy logic as a key tool for senior decision makers that can counter emerging threats in the 4IR. We will also explore appropriate governance activities to harness the power of disruptive technologies like AI, ML and everything-as-a-service (EaaS) while still operating within the organization’s accepted risk appetite and tolerance.
