Digital disruption is for sure the most discussed matter in the last few years and as we know it is full of potential benefits for one`s business. However, it may create unexpected and unplanned risks. Risk professionals, who are fully aware of the advantages of these technologies and the downsides of it, will they be fully prepared to implement them successfully?

Key questions – How can new tech help risk management? Or can it? What are the risks of going digital? Or not going digital?
