Key takeaways

Catastrophic risks require C-level attention.

While tech companies are concerned about catastrophic risks, they are not being adequately discussed at the board level. This limits companies’ ability to fully understand and mitigate these risks.

Physical and digital risks are converging.

Risk leaders need to re-examine how their products and services are being used and identify any physical liabilities that could result from a technology failure.

Changing regulations pose new risks.

Technology companies need to keep up to date with regulatory developments and make the necessary changes to comply with new rules.
