No Escape: How the IoT has changed the way we should manage risk

Did you know that there are an estimated 23 billion Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices today? It is estimated that by 2025 there will be 76 billion. Connectivity, thanks to the IoT, has reshaped how we look at managing risk in all aspects of our lives and business. This discussion explores how our lives have changed for the better, the emerging challenges facing today's risk managers and methods to assist in the mitigation of IoT Risk.

Guest Speaker: James D'errico, CSP

  10:30 AM Managing Environmental Liabilities: Creative Uses of Speciality Environmental Insurance Policies to address Past, Present and Future Contamination

Environmental laws are complex and varied, and are often applied strictly, without a need for the showing of intent and typically without a Statute of Limitations. Most states have at least one or two layers of environmental regulation which must neatly roll up under the Federal regulations. No entity is fully exempt from these regulatory burdens - real estate owners, municipalities, manufacturers, power generators and even lenders all have exposure to environmental liabilities - known or hidden.

This panel will explore potential environmental liabilities businesses and minicipalities face, as well as creative solutions that are available from the niche environmental insurance marketplace. This discussion will include a look at some of the specialty policy forms, as well as some success stories and claims examples. We will also take a look to the future and explore some of the current concerns involving emerging contaminants and other threats to financial stability. 

Panel Guest Speakers:
Gene P. Devine, Esq. and Toby Smith
