You'll explore how risk is managed in insurance, and how insurance companies need to work with businesses to mitigate risk and prepare for the unknown and unexpected in today's global marketplace.

What are the big risk challenges for businesses in the future? How are technological advances impacting our understanding of capacity to manage risk, and how are insurance companies embracing change to protect businesses in a complex global environment?
