But given its breadth and scope, it is not surprising that it faces several important, often interconnected and mutually reinforcing challenges, such as geopolitical instability, inflation, climate change, currency fluctuations and staff availability. •  Technology: Technological advancements have helped organizations improve operational efficiency, connect workers, and foster growth. However, these advances have also exposed companies to new and changing risks, such as AI-powered tools that empower the workforce, while creating new exposures to fraud and data security.•  Climate: Tailored As the frequency and severity of natural disasters and extreme weather increase, the significant economic and social impacts increase the need for action. While facing increasing regulations and geopolitical nuances, companies need access to richer data and analytics, climate modeling, and industry collaboration to drive meaningful, coordinated progress.•  Workforce: The inability to attract and retain talent.
