Industrial Control Systems – When Cyber gets Physical
Industrial control systems are the means by which the digital world is connected to the physical world. As businesses continue to increase their reliance on automated controls and drive the prevalence of networked devices, these industrial environments are more at risk from cyber than ever.
Cyber crime is evolving past theft of data, beyond business network infiltration, to the interruption of production through the connectivity of the operating technology (OT). A more troubling risk is the potential for cyber-based manipulation of physical equipment and processes – physical damage beyond the 1’s and 0’s.
Understanding cyber risk for an organization means identifying all potential vulnerabilities, from the physical security, to information systems and industrial control systems. Protecting these environments requires a holistic approach to evaluating cyber risk combined with a solid understanding of the business critical something or others. In this session, Tiago Dias – FM Global Cyber Security Consultant will talk about protecting the production environment, which requires a t unique approach to security and a solid understanding of the equipment at risk

Building succession plans and retaining Gen Z talent
The Future of Work and Emerging Trends
The Future of Work and Emerging Trends – Human capital is at the heart of high-growth companies, and attracting and retaining top talent is essential for success. With a majority of company executives foreseeing a significant surge in workforce disruption in the next few years, what are leading firms doing to deliver a workforce for the future?
As Kate will discuss during her presentation, thriving organisations are human-led and digitally enabled. They put purpose at the heart of their talent value proposition, and ensure the diversity and adaptability of their workforce. She will lead a provocative discussion around the drivers of disruption (legislative, technological, demographic and macroeconomic), the impact of these disruptors, and the challenging – yet exciting – opportunities for organisations to respond.
Winning organisations will be those that create stronger connections with its people. Kate refers to this as creating “connectivity in the human age.” She will engage brunch participants on ways in which organisations can build trust, develop genuine and generous dialogue, and deliver purposeful experiences that delight and surprise their people
How important are relationships in the current market?

Tony Hills, Client Solutions Executive, will share his views from a relationship management point of view and why maintaining strong relationships in challenging times is a critical stage in building long term resilience.
