March 2012 webinar: BI/CBI triggered by Nat Cat events

Overview

In recent years several intense Nat Cat events have led to long periods of business disruption because of severe devastation of property. Internationally operating companies experienced production damage around the globe. National economies as well as insurance companies faced record high losses because of these events.  Shortcomings of supply chain risk assessment became obvious to the insurance industry but not all problems are easy to solve. This webinar will discuss BI vulnerability drivers and its dependency on the regional distribution of insured locations. Measures to limit the uncertainty of business interruption risks will be outlined.
