Living the life of George and Jane Jetson is becoming the norm in both the home and workplace.
These “new” things in our world have created unique exposures for insureds and their insurers.
Who is at fault when something goes wrong? Will product liability based exposures replace
general negligence exposures? Do we still have a right to privacy? How has the insurance
industry responded? What losses might be covered or not covered? How might insureds,
insurers and risk managers minimize the risks from these disruptors and those to come?
Join us for a conversation with Insuralex members from the Americas as they explore these
questions, and more.
4 – 4:50 p.m.
