London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, London, United Kingdom

Event Details

Start Date:
December 10 @ 8:00 am
End Date:
December 11 @ 11:30 am
					

In this interconnected and increasingly risky world, supply chain resilience is being recognised by many organisations as an essential part of their business continuity programme.  In some instances it can even represent a competitive advantage. The changing business, economic and political environment has created a number of new risks for organisations, which in turn demands greater awareness of supply chain exposures all the way through the supply chain. This requires responsible leadership, a coordinated risk management approach and collaboration both internally and externally with critical suppliers and associated regulatory bodies.

This theme for this year’s Supply Chain Risk Conference, supported by the Business Continuity Institute and the UK risk management association Airmic, was ‘Collaboration in a Connected World’. It brought together 150+ business leaders, supply chain, procurement, business continuity and risk professionals to discuss the threats of connected risk and the need for coordinated resilience programmes that provide full visibility to risks and collaboration internally and externally with suppliers and the risk transfer markets in order to effectively manage supply chain disruptions.

 

Please note the risk manager workshops scheduled for day 2 have been cancelled.

Presentation: BCI Supply Chain Resilience Report & Survey 2018
In November 2018 the Business Continuity Institute will publish the tenth edition of the Supply Chain Resilience Report and Survey. This study is an influential industry resource which tracks the origins, causes and consequences of supply chain disruption across industry sectors and regions worldwide. It also benchmarks business continuity (BC) arrangements in place – including the uptake of insurance – in different organisations which build supply chain resilience. The study typically gets responses from over 500 firms from over 60 countries and is one of the most comprehensive, practitioner-led reports in the field. This session will provide a presentation of the key findings from the 2018 report covering the following aspects: What are the frequency and origins of disruptions? What are the major causes of disruption? How is the loss of productivity and damage to reputation measured? What are the financial and economic impacts of disruption? Which new risks are emerging on the horizon? How prepared are firms with resilience and business continuity planning?

Presentation & Panel Discussion: The Impact of Political Instability on Supply Chains
The world economy is currently struggling with unprecedented levels of change and volatility and potential barriers to trade are building up across the developing markets, not least in the world of insurance. This session will assess the most pressing political threats and review the potential impact on supply chains. What does the prospect of an increasingly protectionist world mean for the way international companies need to manage their supply chain risk? Should UK and European companies seek to source suppliers closer to home and what are the risks and costs associated with such changes? How is the risk-reward best calculated when considering such fundamental changes in business strategy? What is the best strategy to ensure business continuity in such a volatile world?

Presentation & Panel Discussion: Modern Slavery: Transparency in the Supply Chain
Awareness of Modern Slavery is increasing, and understanding, evaluating and managing the level of modern slavery in the supply chain is vital to managing risk. Globalisation is driving a need for international trade standards to become aligned. The UK's Modern Slavery Act imposes some elements from California's Transparency in Supply Chains Act, with transparency through the supply chain as a key factor. Australia is now progressing its own Modern Slavery Act, with similar provisions around transparency and disclosure. Other jurisdictions are increasingly adopting similar legislation, as markets strive to match each other's aspirational legislative and regulatory standards. Organisations can no longer afford to ignore any potential modern slavery in their global supply chains. Increasingly human rights-related supply chain due diligence should take a prominent place alongside other core compliance practices focused on issues such as anti-bribery and corruption, anti-money laundering, economic and trade sanctions, and environmental and social harm. With increasing consumer awareness, the reputational risks and brand exposures are potentially significant. How can organisations ensure they comply with legal obligations to address transparency in their supply chain while also protecting and safeguarding their supply chain from the risk of modern slavery?

Presentation: European Risk Manager Survey
With more than 700 respondents from 29 countries, this survey is unique in Europe. It provides valuable insight into risk managers’ jobs in Europe and across the European countries, including their profile, their involvement in defining organisational strategy and the importance of their relationships within the company, as well as views on insurance. The presentation will address the following three key issues: • The use of new technology • The Risk Manager’s involvement in defining organisational strategy • The evolution of the profession in the face of an increasingly heterogeneous risk management landscape

Presentation & Panel Discussion: Digital Business Interruption Coverage: Fit for Purpose?
The shift to a web-based economy has brought many new risk management challenges, not least in the area of supply chain. Traditional BI policies were designed to cover property claims, not cyber claims and so they are not really fit for purpose. There are also fundamental differences in the character of cyber losses and the interplay with policy wordings. Cyber policies with business interruption cover are often low and do not always have adequate supplier cover, and claims are also potentially more complex, less tangible, and will often require different skills to quantify and adjust. During this session a panel of experts will identify what are the main digital BI exposures and most importantly how they can be transferred. Questions asked will include: The insurance industry has a huge potential business expansion opportunity here but is it reacting adequately? If not what does the insurance sector need to do to meet customer demands in this fast-growing business-critical area? What do risk managers need to do to ensure that they are really covered in the way that they want to be?

Panel Discussion: Risk Management Part 1: The Importance of Collaboration
The changing business, economic and political environment has created a number of new risks for organisations, which in turn demand greater awareness of supply chain exposures all the way through the supply chain. This requires responsible leadership, a coordinated risk management approach and collaboration both internally and externally with critical suppliers and associated regulatory bodies. All supply chain experts agree that the best way to identify, manage and mitigate supply chain risk is to approach it in an enterprise-wide manner. If this risk is managed in silos then the result will be only partial risk identification, measurement and management. But who, ultimately, owns the risk and what type of procedures do organisations need to implement in order to achieve a clear and effective supply chain risk management process, with full support from the top and buy-in at all levels. And what assurances should firms be seeking from their own critical suppliers that they are also taking an appropriate enterprise-wide approach? The panel session will tackle the following core questions: Why does supply chain risk need to be managed on an enterprise-wide basis? Who are the key players that need to be involved? Who is responsible for what? What role does the risk manager need to play in the management of this broad business risk? How can the risk manager ensure that all parties work in tandem to properly manage this risk? How can the positive benefits of proactive risk management of this critical risk be effectively communicated and measured?

Presentation: The impact of Supply Chain Risks
In this unique presentation we will gain valuable insight to the work that the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies, part of the University of Cambridge, has done looking at the risks of shocks to the supply chain networks of major corporations, and to trading networks around the world. Their work has looked at the various threats to business continuity and balance sheet risk, using a taxonomy of threats ranging from financial and trading threats, geopolitical and security, natural catastrophe and climate, technology and cyber, and health and humanity. The Centre produces a Global Risk Index which shows how risks have changed over the past five years and they are able to propose an approach that businesses can use to map their own risks to these threat maps and be more systematic about investing in resilience in their supply chain risk.

Presentation & Panel Discussion: Risk Management Part 2: The Importance of Modelling
This session will begin with a presentation focusing on best practice in collecting necessary and critical data to support quantified supply chain analysis and developing a credible supply chain map with Tier n suppliers and relationships between tiers. This session will tackle the following core questions: What are the most important objectives for preparing a credible supply chain risk assessment? What key metrics are required to provide a valued perspective into risk within the supply chain? What are the critical data elements that are needed to enable a credible quantified analysis of supply chain risk and how should this data be stored securely? What methods and data sources can be employed to accurately build out the supply chain map in a reasonable time frame (1–2 months)? What data sources can be depended upon to help identify critical product component/raw material throughput and frequency?

Presentation & Panel Discussion: Risk Management Part 3: Risk Transfer as an Enabler
Events such as the Japanese tsunami and Thai floods in 2011 not only revealed the vulnerability of the modern, lean global supply chain, they also revealed the inadequacy of insurance solutions available to cover it. Since then the market has made significant strides forward, particularly in the development of non-damage business interruption coverage that is essential to provide meaningful coverage for this risk. But further work needs to be done and this is evident from the BCI annual Supply Chain Resilience Report published in 2017 which stated that 51% of respondents do not buy insurance cover for their supply chain risks. However, used in the right manner insurance can be a strategic business enabler that can protect a company from unexpected and unfunded volatility. Insurance has also enabled key innovative projects to move forward. Forward-looking businesses understand that having the correct insurance and risk management strategies in place has a positive impact on the delivery of a company’s short, medium and long-term ambitions. Core questions to be tackled during the debate include: How exactly has insurance coverage evolved? Why does the take up of insurance remain relatively low and what does the market need to do in order to promote the benefits of insurance? What are the latest products available, which are the main carriers, how much capacity is available? Is there enough capacity to meet demand and is it fairly priced? What is the outlook for capacity and price? What add-on services are needed to make this coverage even more useful for risk managers and owners within the relevant organisations?

Presentation & Panel Discussion: Crisis Management: How to maintain business continuity
Unplanned events can have a devastating effect on a businesses. Crisis such as fire, damage to stock, illness of key staff or IT system failure could all make it difficult or even impossible to carry out normal day-to-day activities. At worst, this could result in the loss of important cus-tomers - and even going out of business altogether. But with good planning firms can take steps to minimise the potential impact of a disaster - and ideally prevent it happening in the first place. This session will cover the following issues: What to do when the supply chain interruption actually occurs? What have we learned from previous high-profile supply chain disasters? Who responded well and who responded badly? What is the potential reputational impact of a poor response and how can this be measured in financial terms? What kind of products and services can be used to help when it all goes horribly wrong

Q&A Discussion: The Implications of Brexit & Supplier Contracts
One of the trickiest areas in supply chain management in light of new disruption, emerging risks and reputational threats is ensuring that contractual aspects for critical supplier contracts are properly managed. These existing challenges are accelerated by the potential complications of Brexit which will require firms to reassess their cross border supplier contracts and take appropriate measures to ensure their contracts are fit for purpose. The core questions to be covered in this session will include: How might Brexit impact supplier contracts? What impact will the various scenarios have and how should risk managers prepare? How could restrictions on the freedom of movement of people affect supplier contracts and costs? How could companies protect their position against potential exchange rate risk when suppliers are located in other EU countries, or in countries where the loss of free EU trade arrangements may have an impact? What should you do if you have obligations that are defined by reference to EU legislation? How could the scope of a licence, agency or distribution arrangement or relevant intellectual property rights be affected? Brexit may impact a company’s ability to comply with performance obligations and have serious financial implications. Could a specific “Brexit clause” be negotiated to mitigate this risk?
