2023: The Near Future of Mining

February 2020

Gone are the days when miners could simply explore for minerals. Looking ahead, successful miners will be those that also mine for innovation.

Mining for innovation means organizations must develop new products and processes internally to maximize financial and talent resources. They must also consider acquiring new resources from outside their organization if that gives them a more sustainable path forward. Both types of ‘innovation mining’ will at the same time require new processes and protocols to manage the cyber risk that comes along with new, digitally enabled discoveries.
