EXCLUSIVE OPPORTUNITY: Confronting Existential Risks at the “Global Resiliency Forum”

A unique opportunity to join world thought-leaders at a “Global Resiliency Forum,” developed by Ridge Global and sponsored by Walmart, will provide a new level of conversation around three key-resiliency areas: climate adaptation, cyber security, and terrorism.

Over the course of this three-hour workshop, attendees will engage in a facilitated dialogue about the cascading effects of these risks on governments, businesses and communities, and recommend policies and partnerships that can be developed or strengthened to address the risks and build resilience at multiple scales. Globally recognized experts on cybersecurity, response and incident management, critical infrastructure resilience, and strategy and communications, will lead provocative conversations and share specific examples and best practices for driving change. Workshop leaders will include:

• Kirstjen Nielsen, Chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Risk and Resilience, and President and Founder of Sunesis Consulting
• Chris Furlow, President, Ridge Global and former Executive Director of the Homeland Security Advisory Council
• Elizabeth Neumann, Senior Director at Sunesis Consulting and policy and strategy expert on homeland and national security issues
