Information security has been named one of the top five risks that the workplace will face in 2021, according to the latest Business Resilience Trends survey. The ‘Risk Report Outlook 2021’, published by International SOS, surveyed over 1,400 risk professionals across 99 countries to compile the list of most likely risks for the coming 12 months.
Unsurprisingly, the impact of COVID-19 this year has played a major role in the findings, with mental health and crisis management also making the top five. The full list was as follows:
Ecopolitical turbulence will exacerbate tensions, civil unrest and crime
Pandemic borne crisis management teams will redefine Duty of Care practices
The growing infodemic will increase demand for trusted sources of health & security information and advice
Mental health issues will be a primary productivity disruptor
Singular focus on COVID-19 will create risk blind spots
