Enterprise Protective Security

23 August @ 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm

Providence Consulting Group Pty Ltd (Providence) and the Defence Teaming Centre are pleased to bring to industry a presentation on contemporary protective security risks to businesses within the defence sector. The presentation will focus on the risks around workforce assurance and insider threats.

Risk management plays an important role in enabling business decision making across strategy, operations, investment and compliance. Managing the many types of risk assists a business to be flexible and resilient.

The team from Providence will speak about the contemporary geostrategic and socio-economic drivers that defence-aligned businesses, including academia, could be facing and how these may present as risks to be recognised and treated. The presentation will be in three parts: strategic setting, risk identification and risk management, insider threats and workforce assurance.

Registrations close at 5pm on Friday, 19 August 2022.
