ADVANTAGE LIVE: The evolving nature of terrorism risk – Global and Canadian perspectives

ON Map
Date and Time: May 25, 2017 1 p.m. EDT - 2:15 p.m. EDT



Terrorism as a global risk is evolving. Greater political and social instability have increased the risk for terrorism and political violence, including riots, rebellion and civil war.

Methods used by terrorists have moved from high-explosive attacks to mass casualty, and the targets have moved from states to societies. The discussion about terrorism in the industry is also shifting from damage to assets, to human costs, liability, and the importance of crisis management in minimizing negative impacts.

Join our webinar to for a review of the 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.

After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain the relationship between political and social instability and terrorism;
- Provide context as to why attacks and incidents are on the rise globally;
- Discuss terrorism risk and the history of terrorism insurance in Canada;
- Explain the types of losses incurred during a terrorist attack; and
- Discuss risk mitigation and risk transfer strategies.
