Ensuring Safe and Secure Food Systems
Ensuring Food Systems are Safe and Secure:
Understanding New Threats
(Webinar length:  1h 9m)

Concerns about food safety are more complex as a result of globalization. Linking local,
national, and global food systems has provided tremendous benefits to consumers in terms of
availability, variety, and pricing of food. The results of greater connectivity, however, have not
been entirely positive as networked food systems are being recognized as considerable
sources of threat and vulnerability.

Optimizing food safety involves ensuring that food supplies remain free from health threats
whether from natural or accidental contamination. Food safety must also involve preventing
actors with nefarious intent from using food systems to intentionally cause harm for criminal,
terrorist or warfighting purposes (a set of concerns often discussed as food defense).

Despite national and international regulatory efforts to improve food safety, foodborne illness
remains a significant area of concern. Contamination of crops, livestock, and food supplies
can have significant impacts on human and animal health as well as the cost and availability
of food. Beyond governmental efforts, today’s food safety concerns present firms and industry
sectors with considerable challenges to protect products and brands from harm by
considering how to reduce threats and vulnerabilities in their operations.

This webinar will examine trends and challenges to food safety and food defense with a
particular focus on questions of governance, regulation and legal issues including
consideration of roles for individuals, companies, and government agencies.

Overview of the changing landscape of food safety threats and vulnerabilities
