Global Risks for Infrastructure – The Technology Challenge

GIIA, in partnership with Marsh & McLennan, is today pleased to launch the latest in a series of reports looking at global risks for infrastructure.

Global Risks for Infrastructure – The Technology Challenge examines the impacts that rapid technological advancement are having on infrastructure assets around the World and what it will mean for the sector in years to come.

Speaking on the launch of the Report, CEO Lawrence Slade said:

“The rapid pace of technological advancement around the world can be seen as something of a mixed blessing for the infrastructure sector. While it has unquestionably created new opportunities – and indeed in some cases entirely new markets – owners and operators of infrastructure assets have also been faced with new competition, changing demand patterns, evolving regulation and an increased exposure to cyber-risk.”

“In facing these challenges, infrastructure investors and asset operators must focus on building technological agility by developing new core skills within their teams and adapting and optimizing existing assets all while scanning the horizon for new technological advancements.”
