Horizon Scanning:
Ensuring Your Board Takes a Forward-Looking View of Risk

Sponsored by
In today’s environment, boards and the c-suite need to be prepared to address emerging risks that may not be fully known yet, requiring them to approach their oversight role with a forward-looking view towards where risks may be heading in the future. This is particularly relevant with the speed of technology change and lagging regulations in areas like Artificial Intelligence, Deep Fakes, and Disinformation.

Join Nasdaq and RANE for a one day, in-person summit where experts in cyber, geopolitics, compliance, and security share lessons learned for board members with practical takeaways to apply in their oversight role.
