Gotcha! Top Ten Litigation Traps for Risk Professionals (CLM202)
Thursday, April 29, 9:45 am - 11:15 am
Listen | Download | Rate and Comment

Insurance-related traps lurk in every litigated case. Learn how to spot these litigation snares and establish processes to avoid them, perhaps setting some traps of your own. Failing to spot covered claims can result in lost protection; late notice or lack of insurer consent may lead to coverage forfeiture; and every communication with insurers about the case must avoid claims of privilege waiver on the one hand and threats of noncooperation on the other. Join our panel as we put on an entertaining game show with new case studies, war stories and practical tips to educate even the most sophisticated risk professionals—and in-house and defense counsel—who can be ensnared by these unforeseen dilemmas.

Listen | Download | Rate and Comment

Explore the ever-changing threats to security and prepare yourself for the next potential disaster. Consider the three components of security risk: the threat, the vulnerability of the target and the consequences of the attack, as we answer pressing security questions. How do we assess our vulnerabilities and mitigate the consequences of an attack as the threats change and enemies get smarter? How reliable are current risk assessment tools in evaluating and quantifying the effects? Are security standards changing quickly enough to prevent the next disaster and are companies doing enough? What are the potential consequences and inherent liabilities in failing to protect?
