Topic:  How to Prepare for New Threats – Are you Ready?

In our industry, we have always typically conducted our risk analysis against a variety of human, technical and natural threats.  However in this ever changing world, we are seeing new type of threats with many secondary impacts to them.

Many of us had pandemic plans, but it was difficult to anticipate the secondary impacts of COVID, similarly the secondary impacts of political and civil unrest, trade wars and other issues that an extended disaster would cause.

How do we anticipate and best prepare for these types of threats?  What are the lessons learned from the most recent including current threat we face?
