Scottish Business Resilience Centre, in partnership with Scotmid Co-operative and Royal Bank of Scotland, are delighted to announce Scotland’s Retail & Tourism Conference 2018 – Managing the Risk
The Conference will take place on 4th May at Royal Bank of Scotland, Gogarburn, Edinburgh.
As both, retail and tourism sectors share the same consumers within their local communities and further afield, the overarching aim of the conference is to bring together small and medium enterprises from the retail and tourism sector to explore risks to their businesses and how they can identify and manage them effectively.
An excellent suite of speakers from Police Scotland, Digital Tourism Scotland and our sponsors Scotmid and RBS will be delivering unique and insightful inputs throughout the day.
To suit different needs of delegates, there will be breakout sessions where attendees will learn about current and emerging threats their businesses might be facing and what actions they need to take to prevent them. The sessions will cover fraudulent transactions, insider threat from staff vulnerability, human trafficking and safe night time economy.
The conference will also provide attendees with advice on how to overcome threats related to the ever-growing digital world, from cyber-security to managing digital reputation.
