World on brink of unavoidable ‘black swan’ apocalypse, security panel warns

The world is on the “brink of a black swan” apocalypse, security experts have warned.

Experts on global security are set to come together to discuss so-called “black swan events” in crunch talks tomorrow.

A black swan event is an unforeseen event that may have catastrophic consequences.

Experts from Germany and the US will discuss this risk in the presence of Russian, Armenian and other delegates at the World Congress on Information Technology tomorrow.

The panel will include national security expert and author Richard Clarke, who manned the White House’s emergency response during the September 11th terror attacks.
