Cyber Risk Triad Technology, Security and Insurance
Cyber Risk Triad: Technology, Security and Insurance

Hosted by Lynne McChristian

Every organization is a target for cybercrime, but medium- and small-sized companies are increasingly vulnerable. They are big enough to make the hit worthwhile, yet lack a full-force IT department to put up sufficient defense. Cyberattacks dropped during the pandemic, and now the pace is picking up – with some high-profile ransomware incidents resulting in millions in payoffs. Cyberrisk is a systemic risk, and building a better defense is mission critical. This webinar will provide tips and techniques to identify vulnerabilities and highlight a developing cyberrisk model designed to help insurers better price the risk in order to expand cyber coverage.

Data Science First Mile and Last Mile Problems
Data Science First Mile and Last Mile Problems

Hosted by Jim Guszcza and Robert Brunner

The impact of data on business decision making and more specifically analytics and analytics-driven automation continues to increase. Most people and courses intrinsically focus on the importance of the algorithm behind the analytics or automation. Yet the choice and optimization of the algorithm is becoming automated itself. As a result, many experts miss the importance of what comes before and after the algorithm. Join Jim Guszcza, Fellow at Stanford’s Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and Deloitte’s first US Data Scientist, and Robert Brunner, Associate Dean for Innovation and Chief Disruption Officer at Gies College of Business, for a discussion on the important issues behind what he calls the “first-mile” and “last-mile” problems, and how they are fast becoming the key drivers for success in the field of data-driven decision making.

How to Create a Workplace Climate That Welcomes Diverse Perspectives
Why and How to Create a Workplace Climate Where Diverse Perspectives Are Welcomed

Hosted by Ilana Redstone

Many organizations have found the goal of a truly inclusive workplace difficult to realize. One of the reasons for this is that we’ve lost sight of an important axis of diversity: diversity of perspectives—political, ideological, and otherwise. While we often recognize that a climate with open communication and where a range of perspectives are welcomed is also one where cooperation, productivity, and innovation will thrive, how to get there has remained elusive. This new climate doesn’t come from a toolkit or a checklist of to-do items: It comes from a new way of thinking. We’ll talk about how to bring it to life.

How Can Artificial Intelligence Effectively Augment Human Intelligence
How Can Artificial Intelligence Effectively Augment Human Intelligence?

Hosted by Aravinda Garimella

There is growing consensus that the better way to think about artificial intelligence is not from a machine-versus-human perspective but from a machine-plus-human perspective. The understanding that human intelligence and artificial intelligence have different, as well as complementary, strengths and weaknesses has led to the emergence of human–AI hybrid systems that combine the two intelligences. While the transformative potential of AI is widely recognized, there is still significant uncertainty for businesses on how to effectively integrate AI into their existing processes. Aravinda Garimella, assistant professor of business administration at Gies College of Business, discusses key issues to consider before designing, implementing, and using AI-augmented systems.

The Disruptive Impact of COVID 19 on Supply Chains
The Disruptive Impact of COVID 19 on Supply Chains

Hosted by Nehemiah Scott

Organizations typically operate their global supply chains based on fairly predictable and highly probable situations. When an unpredictable and highly improbable situation arises, supply chains will be disrupted. During disruptive events like COVID-19, the displacement of international transportation resources, the negative capacity cushions of manufacturers, and the demise of small deep tier suppliers were evident, but what exactly does this mean for the supply chain? In addition, the severe shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators has placed supply chain disruption front and center within the global landscape.

In this webinar, Professor Nehemiah Scott discusses the supply chain’s susceptibility to risk and describes several ways in which typical supply chain processes were disrupted by COVID-19. He also identifies important investment options that organizations can pursue in their quest for supply chain recovery and resilience.
