BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

2012 Business Insurance Risk Management Summit


The Business Insurance Risk Management Summit, February 29 - March 1, 2012, is a unique 2-day conference serving the information and networking needs of senior risk managers from the largest US and Global companies.

The annual Risk Management Summit, now it its third year, provides attendees with focused insight via specific, timely general sessions and strategic, thought-provoking discussions with peers and industry leaders.

Topics for discussion for the 2012 Risk Management Summit include:

Cyber Liability

Practical things that risk managers can do to guard against cyber risks. Everyone acknowledges that the risk is growing but how can risk managers help address the risks? What do risk managers bring to the table and how can they work with IT to address the risk? These sessions will go beyond reiterating the threats and exposures and give a practical guide to addressing cyber risks that goes beyond buying coverage.

Risks of Global Expansion

As companies continue to expand overseas, particularly to high-growth regions such as Brazil, China and India, what challenges do their risk managers face? How do they ensure that their assets are protected and that their coverage will respond in the event of claims? These sessions will provide an analysis of the risks that companies face as they expand overseas including: political and regulatory risks; coverage concerns; claims issues.

Supply Chain Risk Management

The Thai floods and Japanese earthquake earlier this year highlighted the supply chain exposure that many organizations face. With limited insurance available for contingent business interruption, how do risk mangers protect their organizations from the wide variety of supply chain risks? These sessions will analyze the exposure in light of the recent events and other key drivers of supply chain risks; review strategies for managing the exposure; and offer insights into the risk transfer and claims process.

Captive Strategies

Creating a captive insurance company involves a capital commitment from the parent company, but by truly running the captive as a business that capital can be put to work advancing the strategic goals of the parent, strengthening relationships with customers and business partners and even helping turn the risk management department into a profit center. These sessions will examine innovative uses of captives, ensuring those creative approaches pass regulatory muster, tax issues involved and current legislative and regulatory issues affecting captive owners.
