Boost your business by boosting your intelligence
Executives in enterprises and organisations are being challenged more than ever to demonstrate responsibility and accountability alongside entrepreneurial leadership. Economic confrontations, digitalisation and climate change are bringing new levels of complexity to ventures in an unsettled global landscape. Accurate and reliable information is key to conducting business successfully in this environment.
Companies that operate internationally need intelligence: this means factual information to help you understand the political, economic, environmental and regulatory changes in unfamiliar places and how they will affect economic developments.
You also have to address the threat of corruption, which can take many forms, like bribery, embezzlement or money laundering. According to a statement by the U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres in December 2018, the global economy loses US$3.6 trillion to corruption every year. Countries are tightening the laws and cooperating across borders to counter corruption and its impact on the economy. Even if you’re drawn in unwittingly by fraudulent business partners acting in your name, you can face heavy fines and loss of reputation.
Another risk is that of cyber-criminals who target important personnel to get information to prepare cyber-attacks on businesses, or even physical attacks on employees, so they can gain access to mission-critical assets. Fake news and manipulative information are another growing threat to organisations, business leaders and society. They discredit accurate reporting and undermine trust in independent media, businesses and democracy. The Information Security Forum has warned about attackers trying to profit from spreading lies to discredit targeted companies or personalities.
The good news is that we can help you boost your corporate intelligence to counter the risks and harness the opportunities.
