ADVANTAGE LIVE - Upcoming webinar
The evolving nature of terrorism risk – Global and Canadian perspectives
Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 1 pm EDT to 2:15 EDT
Register for the webinar
Terrorism as a global risk is evolving – from the methods used by terrorists (from high-explosive attacks to armed attacks) to the targets (from states to societies). At the same time, incidents in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Ottawa and most recently in Quebec City, have redefined how we think about terrorism at home – it can happen here.
This webinar will include a brief history of terrorism risk; a discussion of our current geopolitical landscape, political violence and 'the new normal'; an analysis of international terrorism insurance programs (including TRIPRA and risk pools); an assessment of vulnerability to an attack and scale of exposure; and a review of risk mitigation and risk transfer strategies.
