Technology is also changing and has the potential to disrupt current market dynamics.

Energy and natural resources companies are challenged by an ever-growing array of threats and opportunities that grow more complex every day. From the risks entering remote regions in the world in the search for natural resources to changing regulatory and compliance pressures and financial and production risks; the management of these risks is not advancing as fast as the threats faced, and companies are falling short in a number of important areas.
