Security Management for EP Operators | Dr Gavriel Schneider

'Risks get realised' and when they do, are they a risk anymore? How can operators make 'better decisions'? What frameworks could actually make a difference for the split second choices facing operators and why would that lead to a career in Security Management?

We are delighted to welcome Dr Gavriel Schneider, CEO and Founder of Risk 2 Solution and ISRM ANZ Chapter Chair to ask:

  • Why is resilience challenging to 'own'?
  • Is becoming a specialist a route to a stalled career when trying to get into the corporate world?
  • Why isn't health and safety a more core role of the EP operator?
  • What skills would an operator need to 'leave behind' if moving into security management?
  • Why would building 'risk intelligence' in people actually look like?
  • What does 'Presilience' mean and how could it enhance the work of EP?
  • What should international operators know about the Australian environment?
