Supply Chain Security 2.0: Entering the Globalized Stage.

Natural disasters, adverse weather conditions, political unrest, cargo theft—all of these can cause disruptions in the supply chain. At the Davos CEO Summit in 2012, a startling 93 percent of the leaders of the world’s top companies said that they were unprepared for supply-chain disruptions. As companies continue to invest in and source from far-flung corners of the world, being adequately prepared and being armed with the knowledge of where the greatest risks lie have never before been this important. With complex supply chains becoming the norm, it becomes even more essential to create a resilient supply chain that not only reduces risks but also anticipates, rapidly adjusts, recovers and even capitalizes on unanticipated disruptions.

To this end, global enterprises need to have the transparency to react quickly and efficiently in case of a disruptive event and make use of new decision tools for supply chain risk assessment, monitoring and modeling. This session will look at how businesses can support the growing need for resilient supply chains, explore the evolving role of security experts as a result of this need and examine the tools & functionalities required to create this resiliency.

Tuesday 30 September | 1:45 – 3:00 p.m. [sponsored, session 3205] Leveraging Security Metrics to Demonstrate Efficiencies and ROI Security professionals identify problems, determine priorities, achieve savings, increase productivity, and highlight value by using metrics. Identifying and assessing metrics, and ensuring they are tailored to the organization’s needs, has traditionally been difficult. But the Security Metrics Evaluation Tool, developed through research conducted by the ASIS Foundation, the Defense and Intelligence Council, and the CSO Roundtable’s Leadership and Development Committee, makes it simple to assess metrics. Bring examples of your own security metrics to this session and learn how to use the tool.

Martin Gill mini-sessions: in the CSO Roundtable business lounge [rsvp goes to him and he schedules his own one-on-one meetings]

What else do you get from good security, beyond just good security? In both corporate security departments and amongst security suppliers, there has been a very narrow focus on the benefits from services provided, in fact most often that focus has been on security benefits.

But in fact there are a wide range of benefits that you get from a good corporate security function compared to a bad, and a good security supplier compared to a poor one. In this project we will catalogue both security benefits but also non security ones. For the first time ever we will be able to discuss the true value of security from an entirely new evidence base.

General Session: Perspectives on Security
Security Executives and the Fight against Corruption

The top 10 Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement actions, from 2008 through early 2014, have resulted in settlements of nearly $4 billion. These settlements can ravage stock prices, executive tenure, and employee morale. And that’s without considering the cost of litigation. Add to this the threat of prosecutions from both the FCPA and the UK Bribery Act (UKBA) as well as the effect on the corporate reputation, and it is easy to see why some companies are beginning to rethink markets where corruption is perceived as rife.

This session will examine how corporate security professionals can keep organizations out of danger of litigation and exorbitant fines, how security is the first line in the defense of an organization’s reputation, and how FCPA and UKBA are being enforced.
