Discussion points:


  • Over the last 20 months, Covid-19 had an unprecedented impact on health, economy, society, lives and livelihoods. The virus and lockdown impacted varying industries differently; the recovery is also uneven.


  • 2022 promises to be a year of reset and promise; we are seeing mass vaccinations, a return to normalcy and strong rebound across India and many parts of APAC, though vaccine hesitancy and new mutants are causing some anxiety.


  • Covid-19 accelerated digital transformation and rapid adoption of technologies.


  • Globally, geo-political, environmental and technological risks have been intensifying, leading to calls for shorter and resilient supply chains and in/near shoring. What major risks are being faced by businesses in South Asia as we contemplate a return to normalcy.


  • What has been the impact of the Pandemic on Corporate Security? Has it hastened digital transformation of the security function?  What technologies are seeing rapid adoption?
