BOSTON, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Risk management experts from Liberty Mutual will present two educational sessions at the upcoming RIMS annual conference that help mid-size and large insurance buyers – and the brokers and agents who support them – better address key risk management challenges:
- Environmental Disaster: The Overlooked Cyber Threat
Examine environmental pollution as an underemphasized, dangerous and costly potential consequence of cyber-attacks. Analyze enhanced assessments of properties and facilities with environmental exposures and other tools that can help mitigate the environmental impact of a cyber-attack.
Presenter – William Bell, senior vice president, Environmental, LIU
Monday, April 24, 2:30 - 2:55 p.m., RIMS Hub Booth #1427
- Cover Yourself With Wearables: Harness the Technology While Managing Its Risks
As fitness bands, smart watches and embedded sensors become a routine part of business, employers gain new access to data on health, safety and productivity. But these data collectors also represent significant risks—with variable accuracy among devices and lack of industrywide standards. Learn how to assess if wearables might improve safety and productivity, select the right technology, and build a four-step plan for effectively integrating appropriate wearables into your workplace while managing their corresponding risks.
- Eric Sachleben, manager, Risk Control, Liberty Mutual Insurance
- Alexi Carli, vice president, Global Health and Safety, UPS
Tuesday, April 25, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., Room: 120AB
"The educational sessions at RIMS are a great way for risk managers and intermediaries to explore key risk management issues," notes Jeffrey McFarland, senior vice president and manager, Distribution, Liberty Mutual National Insurance, which provides a full range of insurance products and services to mid-size and larger buyers through brokers and agents. "We welcome the opportunity to share our expertise to help buyers, brokers and agents better manage and mitigate these important exposures."
