From The Situation Room To The Boardroom

In this episode of the Security Insider podcast, we speak with Dr Anthony Bergin and Don Williams about the recently released ASPI (Australian Strategic Policy Institute) report, From The Situation Room To The Boardroom, which looks at why corporate security is effectively national security.
We discuss how some of the findings from the report relate to the impact of Coronavirus on Australia and what advice the report offers for how corporate Australia and the Australian Government might move forward to create a safer, more secure future for Australia.
