Episode 136: Business Continuity Risks to Watch in 2023

You might have business continuity plans drawn up for the usual, everyday business risks, but every year there are specific threats we need to consider based on political climates, the economy, and global conflicts. In this episode, we’re sharing the top risks you need to consider in 2023.

Some of the risks we’re covering include: 

  • Global conflicts are at the forefront in 2023, including the Russia-Ukraine war and China’s threats to invade Taiwan. Both have a huge impact on supply chains and the U.S. economy as they escalate.
  • Artificial intelligence, including AI-generated content and other AI tools, is getting better and better – as long as it’s in the right hands. There are ways to leverage AI for good, but are you preparing your teams for AI’s risks?
  • The need to plan for compounding risks is more important than ever. Brainstorm ways that one disaster’s solution might be thwarted by the effects of another disaster.
