The world has changed:


Climate change, natural catastrophes, large-scale cyber-attacks, continuous migration flows, natural resources crises, financial bubbles.

These are the main risks according to the World Economic Forum report 2019. However, these risks do not hit in an isolated way: they are interconnected and anyone has the potential to affect others, generating a domino effect on a global scale, and they are capable of overwhelming the big as well as the small companies.
