Join as we explore the complex and continuously evolving cannabis industry, starting with the disparate legal status globally and the resulting cross-border security impacts including grow sites, theft, trade, smuggling, black market operations, price inequality, cash transactions, asset protection, and maneuvering within an industry without US Federal protections. Our discussion will then dive deeper into how we, as security professionals, address these and other security risks throughout the industry lifecycle from seed to sale, what current practices are most (and least) effective, the impact of lagging DE&I initiatives, emerging technology and potential solutions to remaining risk gaps, and how we hope to see security within the industry evolve in the coming years.  

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Attendees will be informed as to legal status of the cannabis plant and plant derivative products globally and the various types of associated cross-border risks.  
  • Attendees will be introduced to current challenges facing professionals in all cannabis industry lifecycle stages – from seed to sale - and what strategies and tools have been most effective.            
  • Attendees will be introduced to and invited to engage in discussion about emerging trends, anticipated changes within the industry, and emerging technology that can be effectively integrated into current practices.
