Why Imagining the Impossible Can Protect Companies

Date TBA


What if you could see bad things coming? This requires specific focus at key points in our daily lives — imagining the impossible. Unfortunately, most people are unaware and never think things could happen to them. The pandemic, January 6 Capitol riot, and hundreds of mass shootings across our country are recent examples of the unimaginable becoming reality. Former special agent and counterterrorism expert, Fred Burton will explore how these events can be detected and stopped through data and technology, rising and expanding physical threats, and why business leaders need to always be imagining the impossible. He will discuss the real threats of today and the mindset needed to ultimately keep people and businesses safe.
