11.30am New Frontiers: How to manage the risks of operating across international borders
StrategicRISK’s editor interviews a panel of risk professionals on the risks impacting firms operating across the region and further afield.
• What are the main risks faced by Hong Kong-based businesses operating across international borders?
• What practical tools have companies used to spread a risk culture across international operations?
• How is regulatory risk affecting this sphere?
• With political risk escalating both in Hong Kong and abroad, how do you measure, manage and mitigate this risk effectively?
• Should firms be looking again at their business travel policies to high risk countries or areas?
• Are companies looking at multinational insurance solutions to mitigate some of the cross border risks they face?
• How is the risk landscape likely to change in the future in terms of multinational operations?

12.15pm Developing a truly practical cyber risk management programme
Cyber risk remains high on the agenda of corporates across SE Asia. StrategicRISK’s Asia Editor leads a panel of experts to uncover what specific aspects of cyber risk keep regional risk managers up at night and what steps they are taking to measure, manage and mitigate this risk

• Is the word ‘cyber’ often misused and perhaps even misunderstood? What does it mean to companies in terms of risk?
• How are companies dealing with identifying and prioritising the cyber/data risks that they face?
• What should an effective cyber risk programme should look like?
• Is there a disconnect between boards and the risk function in terms of general knowledge of the risks associated with cyber?
• What are companies doing to incorporate internal stakeholders in their cyber risk programme and getting buy in?
• The scope of insurance coverage is increasing in this sphere yet there appears to be a general reluctance towards buying policies – what is the reason for that?
