Risk is unavoidable, whether your organization is operating domestically or is interconnected globally. Which threats—from cyber and foreign influence to terrorism and espionage—are most critical to Canadian interests? How do Canadian firms or entities operate effectively and securely abroad? In this unique and enlightening talk, Ray Boisvert goes beyond the typical “security” speech to explore the procedures developed and applied at CSIS—such as conducting operations in difficult, if not hostile, environments—and how these lessons can be applied in either private or public institutions, and to your own business. The ability to identify and understand the myriad of threats to business activities is critical to effectively manage those challenges. Irrespective of the business requirement, a simple yet comprehensive set of informed strategies ensure resilience and the protection of assets and reputations.
Enter: Boisvert. Drawing from real life experiences in challenging on the ground situations at CSIS and I-Sec, Boisvert delivers surprisingly candid insights on how leadership can make or break a risky situation, and the benefits of mitigating risks to people, facilities and reputation (protecting shareholder value and/or public trust). He helps you craft an appropriately tailored response to your challenges, showing you how (and when) to manage threats and opportunities using advanced techniques, environmental awareness, and “smart information” to inform decision making. A trusted expert in global security, Boisvert gives insider tips the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
