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”.

Supply chain risks, cyber security to be featured at Risk Management Summit®

NEW YORK—Supply chain, cyber security and global expansion risks are top of mind for risk managers at large companies this year.

To get cutting-edge insights into how to manage these dynamic and potentially catastrophic exposures, 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®. Qualified risk managers can attend the Risk Management Summit at no cost, and registration for the event is still open.

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 across an array of industries.

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 who still serve as risk managers.

Summit partners include Chartis, Dempsey Partners, FM Global, Sedgwick and Zurich.

The 2012 Risk Management Summit® will provide case studies on four issues of greatest concern to risk managers, as identified in a recent 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 the views of leading academics, executives from industry partner companies and other experts.
