The Business Continuity Institute (BCI) is the world's leading institute for business continuity and resilience with over 8,000 members across 100 countries and is headquartered in the UK. It sets guidelines, gathers research and provides training and education to make businesses more resilient in facing future risks. The BCI's Horizon Scan Report for 2022, sponsored by BSI Group, provides organizations with a valuable insight into the biggest disruptions from the previous 12 months, along with the future threats facing organizations in the year ahead. Simon Jordan, a leading BCI member in New Zealand, will highlight the key risks featured in the report that BCI members see as the most threatening to business continuity in the short term and the longer term.   
Two of the key ongoing risks identified by the report are those arising from cyber attacks and from climate change. Simon will therefore also address how your business should be approaching management of the risks from cyber attacks and Tanya Wood, a Partner at Duncan Cotterill specialising in insurance law, will address the legal aspects that need to be considered in respect of cyber risk. Also Dr. Victoria Hatton, Director Sustainability and Climate Change at PwC New Zealand will address the many different ways the risks from climate change can impact your business' ability to operate.
