Drum Cussac has released its first thought-leadership white paper of 2019 titled ‘The Future of Risk’. The new white paper examines the changing landscape of business travel risk and includes thought-leadership from internal and external experts.
In response to the launch of the Future of Risk white paper, Craig Sweet, CEO of Drum Cussac, said: “Industry-leading thought leadership such as the Future of Risk helps put Drum at the forefront of security and risk conversations. This white paper underlines our forward-thinking approach to risk management and mitigation. We don’t just want to help organisations to fulfil their Duty of Care, we want them to embrace their Duty to Care and see employee wellbeing as an essential driver and enabler of global business growth.”
What is the future of risk?
We reached out to clients and security, risk and travel professionals across a wide range of industries to identify their key areas of concern around the future of risk mitigation.
Our white paper offers crucial business insights into:
The future of fully-integrated organisational security
What does the future of risk management look like to your organisation? Our CEO explores how an ERP approach to security that incorporates feeds from across your business could be the key to ensuring employee wellbeing, organisational resilience and operational continuity.
The growing importance of managing employee mental health as well as physical risks
Your duty of care is changing. You now need to consider both the physical and mental risks facing your employees – travellers especially – and the potential impacts on your organisation if you fail to look after your employees’ complete wellbeing. Our expert contributors explore the evolving dynamics of duty of care, the importance of mental health and offer ideas as to how you can manage and mitigate this challenging risk front.
The unforeseen, long-term risks of a globally mobile workforce
As business travel continues to grow globally, evermore travellers are a risk from global threats, whether natural or manmade. However, the unforeseen risks of business travel can pose just as much, if not more, of a challenge to organisations in the long-run. Our contributors explain how in an age of hypermobility you need to start considering the long-term risks and health impacts of travel on employees and the detrimental impact this can have on business operations.
How risk management technology is set to develop in the near future
How will we manage risk in the future? What doors will new technologies open to those in the security and risk industries? Our contributors explore the technologies set to shake up the industry and explain how they will improve the safety and security of employees, assets and travellers worldwide.
