Technology can be a double-edged sword.

It is a key enabler to help organizations globalize and engage with stakeholders more efficiently and effectively. Such is the case for the insurance industry, where digital platforms are increasingly used to share information among insurers, agents and customers globally.

However, technology is also exposing businesses to cyber threats. To safeguard their intellectual property, leading organizations are investing in business-wide improvements starting at the top, according to EY's Global Information Security Survey 2013.

This issue, we share how the Islamic insurance industry has experienced strong double-digit growth. While Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Malaysia take the biggest share of the pie, other emerging markets with an enhanced regulatory framework are presenting new opportunities. In addition, we also share the future outlook of REITs where China, India, Ireland and Mexico show great promise.

To respond to new growth opportunities, supply chains must also evolve adequately. We discuss how supply chain leaders and CFOs must collaborate and with different functions for success. We also discuss the latest hot button issues for audit committee, and developments in rapid-growth markets in two of our signature publications.

Lastly, join us at our upcoming events as we discuss various topics including navigating the US and Australian tax regime, and the real estate system in Japan.
