Topics will include:

Manage and mitigate the risk of supply chain disruptions
Several factors might affect commerce: cyber attacks, geopolitical risks, sanctions, business interruptions, natural disasters, pandemics, finance. A proper assessment of risks in the supply chain is essential in order to avoid major losses. How can the insurance and reinsurance industry help to mitigate these risks? Often companies do not fully understand which policies they should have in place, with the consequence that when an event occurs they discover that the risk is not covered. The insurance industry is facing the increase of supply chain disruption claims and a debate on these issues will be interesting.
