Managing complex risks

Through time, David has served as a Board director of The Security Institute and also runs his own business, namely Deltar Training Solutions. The company is a full-service corporate training consultancy specialising in all aspects of corporate risk and crisis management.

Having spoken about business resilience on Episode 6 of the Security Matters Podcast, David now returns as our guest to focus on the management of complex risks.
