The world has changed dramatically since the beginning of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to rapid decline in economic activity, with near shutdown of many industries and a dramatic drop in global trade. In addition to public health and economic crises, the past year brought civil unrest and deep political division within the United States. How has the risk landscape changed and what do experts see as the biggest risk for 2021? What can corporations do to manage risk more effectively? In this webinar, experts provide a rich perspective on the current global risk landscape and identify major threats and emerging concerns for the coming year.
