We should neither underestimate the disruption and risk technology brings nor its potential to influence our lives in a positive way. We must understand the risks as well as the opportunities.

How Stefan is building a better working world

“Digitalization is changing companies at a speed that can be overwhelming and accompanied by many risks for companies and their employees. Business processes are becoming increasingly automated and executed in cross-company networks, while intelligent products and new business models reshape entire industries.

We need a foresighted approach to identify and mitigate potential risks. New technologies require a whole new line-up. In EY, I help companies using technology to identify and reduce risks, increase compliance and fight fraud and waste in this more and more complex environment.

Furthermore, I am supporting EY clients in changing the interaction with people through a combination of advanced technology and behavioral science for more effective governance and reduced risk.”
