Risk landscape

The new risk landscape

The widespread shift to remote working, and the acceptance by customers of video as equal to face-to-face interactions, means many businesses are increasingly dependent on services like Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Webex for their essential operational and revenue-generating activities.

At the same time, risks are growing. The Allianz Risk Barometer 2022 lists cyber incidents as the top global business risk, and a series of outages hitting big Cloud providers and some of the largest tech companies have shown that unexpected downtime can happen to anyone: nobody is too big to fail.

It’s clear that communication channels must be protected like any other critical business tool, and should now feature prominently in operational resilience and risk assessments.
