The Symposium is a unique forum providing an opportunity for industry experts, consulting firms, and academics to discuss pressing issues. This year's Symposium will focus on Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) for insurers.

ERM delivers significant strategic advantages in increased efficiencies, increased business opportunities, reduced earnings volatility, stronger capital position, and higher profitability. ERM attracts attention in today's uncertain world of complex and interrelated risks. Insurers face increased scrutiny by rating agencies, regulators, and auditors reviewing how insurers are developing and implementing their own ERM system. This year's event includes an insurance industry outlook, an overview of new ERM regulatory requirements, an uncovering of cyber threats and vulnerabilities, and practical details of how ERM is implemented in underwriting, claims, systems, and other areas of insurer operations.
