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”.

Risk Management Summit® topics to include supply chain, cyber, global risks

Risk Management Summit® topics to include supply chain, cyber, global risks

Expansion. Efficiency. Technology. All offer companies tremendous opportunities to grow and thrive. All also bring rapidly evolving—and potentially catastrophic—risks to businesses.

To get cutting-edge insights into how to manage these risks, risk managers from the largest companies in the world will gather at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York next month for Business Insurance's 2012 Risk Management Summit®.

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 industry leaders and peers.

The Risk Management Summit®, to be held Feb. 29-March 1, is open to senior risk managers at Fortune 1000 companies and international companies of comparable size, as well as to past Business Insurance Risk Manager of the Year® and Risk Management Honor Roll® honorees still serving as risk managers. Summit partners include Dempsey Partners, FM Global, Sedgwick and Zurich.

The 2012 Risk Management Summit® will provide case studies on four current issues of greatest concern to risk managers, as identified in a survey of target attendees: cyber liability; risks of global expansion; supply chain risk and business continuity; and captive insurance strategies.

Each case study will be followed by panel discussion on the same topic featuring leading academics, executives from industry partner companies and other experts.

Confirmed speakers include: Christopher Soghoian, a prominent technology security activist and a cyber and privacy specialist at the Center for Applied Cyber Security Research; Jorge Luzzi, group risk management director at Pirelli Group and president of the Federation of European Risk Management Assns.; and Edward Erickson, founder of the Supply Chain Risk Management Leadership Council.

In addition, a luncheon on the first day of the event will highlight the winners of Business Insurance's 2012 Innovation Awards.

Eligible risk managers can register by visiting or by contacting Event Manager Rebecca Briggs at or 212-210-1032.
