Recognising Blind Spots in a Digital Future

From intellectual property theft, cyber threats, loss of reputation to fraud, the risks to tech companies are as complex as they are varied. Be prepared.

Tech companies are subject to some of the same consumer and investor protection regulations as traditional financial institutions, but must balance compliance requirements with the need to innovate, grow, and develop new products. 

Privacy risks and ever-growing cyber challenges can contribute to significant economic loss and reputational damage. As the digital landscape continues to evolve so do the risks, those that are unable to adapt may face obstacles in their business models. 

Join Marsh, Wotton + Kearney and APLYiD for an interactive discussion where we will outline the most pressing risks and challenges for the tech industry right now. We will take a look at the future landscape and the potential disruption of unforeseen blind-spots as technology opportunities grow; the impact this can have on your business and effective strategies to mitigate and manage your risks.
