SCCJ hosts expert panel to discuss emerging challenges in the field of enterprise risk and security

Northeastern University School of Criminology and Criminal Justice hosted a networking event “Building Skills to Navigate Challenges in Enterprise Risk and Security,” that featured a panel of experts discussing the skills professionals needs to meet new challenges in organizational risk. From dealing with misinformation, to the importance of concisely and accurately reporting on data, our expert panel broke down the hard and soft skills professionals need to guide organizations through these threats.

The conversation focused largely on how professionals can leverage data and new technologies to protect and prepare their organizations. From the risks of AI, to the importance of data visualization, the panel explored how data can help and hinder professionals in this space.

The event also highlighted the courses and programs that Northeastern is developing related to these issues, preparing the next generation of students through experiential undergraduate and specialized masters programs.

Data has impacts in ways that ethics often get raised. And for me, that intersection is how we are using data and making sure the insights we are drawing from it are reliable, and that we’ve baked into that analysis an ethical component. For all of us in this business that is critical.
