Digital disputes - cyber meets geopolitics

Monday 17 June 2019

13.30 - 15.00, PR1 - PR3, Gallery 11, Lloyd's, London EC3M 7HA
Charles Hecker, Senior Partner, Control Risks
Nicolas Reys, Director Cyber Threat Intelligence, Control Risks

Assessing the risk: espionage, threats to digital supply chains and disruption to critical infrastructure.

With digital transformation comes new cyber consequences – linked directly into geopolitical realities. States and criminals are developing novel tools to use against organisations, with targeting determined by geopolitical developments and disputes over trade and technology.

Organisations in 2019 will face further commercial espionage, growing threats to digital supply chains and disruption to critical infrastructure. This session will show you the correlation of where cyber meets geopolitics, the associated threat levels and how this directly impacts the external and organisational risk landscape.

It is aimed at anybody who is concerned and has an interest in how geopolitical developments can link to increased cyber threats and risks and those who want to understand enterprise risk management in the context of digital and cyber risks.

Charles Hecker is responsible for shaping Control Risks’ thought leadership on geopolitics, global security, political risk and their impact on international business. Charles speaks at industry, policy and academic conferences and represents the company’s work to the international media. Charles oversees Control Risks’ global political risk output and has lead responsibility for the company’s annual flagship publication, RiskMap. In this capacity, he works with our regional heads of analysis. Charles also contributes to the content and production of Control Risks’ research services, including our subscription offerings and white papers.

Nicolas Reys is the Director heading up Control Risks’ global cyber threat intelligence practice, part of the broader cyber security department. Nicolas is responsible for the management and co-ordination of a team of cyber threat intelligence analysts and consultants. He specialises in the provision of tactical, operational and strategic cyber threat intelligence to public and private sector organisations as well as leading and delivering complex cyber security projects.b.
