Title: Environmental Risk, Climate Change, and Security


For the first time, the 2020 World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report ranked environmental risks as one of the top five global risks by likelihood and impact. Environmental risks are generally catastrophic, man-made, scientifically-proven changes to the climate observed around the world. Environmental risks and climate change affect weather, migration, travel patterns, and community tensions. The resulting safety and security demands need to be articulated to business leaders to minimize vulnerabilities. Review tools security professionals can use to evaluate and mitigate these risks and build countermeasures into security program design and operations.
