The Black Swan Partners
Risk, Compliance & Resilience

Enterprise resilience in the age of disruption

Disruptive risks demand innovative and fresh thinking. Tech megatrends are moving quickly from concept to reality creating disruptive risks and opportunities for organizations and their stakeholders. Key examples are the mobile internet, machine learning, the internet of things, and autonomous vehicles. The potential impacts are expected to be between $14 and $33 trillion by the year 2025. Cyber threats and geopolitical tensions from China, North Korea, Iran, Russia and other state actors are placing increasing pressure on global organizations. Devastating and costly wild fires, droughts and storms are occurring with much greater frequency and intensity creating major pressures in the US and globally.

One big problem with the current risk methodologies is that they undervalue disruptive forces such as climate change and machine learning. The traditional methods use weights and correlation factors that are linear and that are based too heavily on historical rather than dynamic data. Our Black Swan Partner group has deep expertise in helping our clients identify and correct operational weaknesses. We help you create customized business solutions that will increase your organizational resilience through repeatable risk, compliance and business continuity processes
