"Spectrum." The dictionary definition includes a "rich variety". Delegates at the RiskNET Summit 2016 at Schloss Hohenkammer on 8 and 9 November experienced the huge range of issues involved in risk man- agement, The range of themes covered everything from geopolitical issues and country risks to risks relat- ing to Industry 4.0 and risk management methods through to the disaster society and natural hazards.
The quintessence of the two-day professional conference was that risk management is heading in the right direction in some areas – in terms of methods and strategies. But there remains lots to do in a world full of risks. What are the major deficiencies? Awareness and a genuine risk culture in organisations. Whether there will be improvements in these areas? We will see. Some of the answers will be provided by the next RiskNET Summit at Schloss Hohenkammer near Munich on 24 and 25 October 2017.
