Skip to 0 minutes and 12 secondsHello, and congratulations again for finishing this short course on Resilience, Security, and Emerging Technologies. I hope you found this course stimulating as we move beyond the current threats and consider the future threats. So far we've examined the role of governance, risk perception, decision-making, and building resilience. We've identified some of the risks stakeholders might face in relation to resilience challenges, and we've touched on the impact of emerging technologies on future resilience. In our opening scenario videos we've identified some of the challenges and problems that stakeholders might face in relation to a global financial crash, and we've considered the issues of security and resilience in different parts of the world.
