Scotland's Retail & Tourism Conference 2018 – Managing the Risk

09.00-16.00

RBS Business School, Gogarburn, Edinburgh

The aim of the Conference, organise by the Scottish Business Resilience Centre, in partnership with Scotmid Co-operative and The Royal Bank of Scotland, is to bring together small and medium enterprises from retail and tourism sectors 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 partners 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, 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.
