"The first step in the risk management process is to acknowledge the reality of risk. Denial is a common tactic that substitutes deliberate ignorance for thoughtful planning.” Charles Tremper

As a procurement professional one of the first topics that you are taught is how to manage risk. As the world evolves risks change and others crawl back out from under the woodpile. Cyber security and modern day slavery are two such examples. Who would have thought that over 250 years after slavery was first abolished we would still be uncovering a huge trade in human trafficking throughout the world and increasingly we are seeing the side effects of our reliance on digital capability.

This event aims to highlight these plus other growing risks, and we are privileged to have an agenda filled with specialists in their field from cyber security, modern day slavery, GDPR legislation change and diversity and inclusion.

The event will be Chaired by CIPS Group Marketing Director, Cath Hill and speakers include Sam de Silva FCIPS, Partner with CMS our hosts for the event, Yvonne Smyth Head of D&I, Hays Recruiting and Rachel Hudson, Director at XQCyber.

So if you thought you had risk management ticked off it may be time to think again and book yourself on this half day event.
