Threats and crisis have always existed and risk managers are used to dealing with these situations. Nevertheless, the diversity of threats is increasing over the years and crises are more frequent.

Innovation in risk approach and answer is key and use of technology is growing.

BELRIM invites you to understand what the current threat landscape is like and to learn how technology can help risk management with practical examples.

After this global ERM approach, we ‘ll focus on the specific Kidnap & Ransom threat.  What can we retain from the insurance market and from real stories and expertise in managing and resolving these situations?
