Black Swans & Anti-Fragility: How Security Professionals Can Become Resilient [ASIS Webinar]

When:  Nov 3, 2021 from 15:00 to 16:00 (ET)

Full Description

“Black Swan” events, such as storms that are only supposed to occur once every 100 years or unprecedented wildfires, seem to be occurring with greater frequency. In our world of extremes, it pays to become “anti-fragile” or resilient and able to adapt, respond to, and grow from disruptions. This is particularly important for today’s global supply chains, where the most successful companies that can take advantage of what would otherwise be adverse market conditions or disruptions. However, security professionals can gain from becoming more anti-fragile themselves and learning to see incidents as opportunities for improvement in addition to events to be avoided. This webinar will explain how security professionals can become more anti-fragile, take away better learnings from adverse events, and better forecast risks and threats in the future.

This webinar is presented by the ASIS Supply Chain & Transportation Security.
