Learn how to manage cyber risk in this era of digital transformation and remote working, by registering for this week’s InsuranceERM's Insurance Risk & Capital EMEA virtual conference.

The Insurance Risk & Capital EMEA virtual conference takes place online this Wednesday and Thursday. It combines a mixture of live-streamed and pre-recorded content, as well as offering networking via a virtual event platform.

Assessing Covid-19’s impact on insurers’ operational resilience and considering how operational risk will change after the pandemic will be one of the topics discussed during a panel discussion this Thursday.

The panellists include Eugenie Molyneux, Zurich’s chief risk officer (CRO) of commercial insurance, Chris Day, group head of operational resilience at Royal London and Sebastian Rath, principal insurance risk officer at NN Group.

Operationally, insurers have managed Covid-19 very well. They have reported little material disruption in terms of outsourcing. Productivity also appears to have held up well, despite thousands of staff moving to work from home almost overnight.

However, the increase in remote working has increased the frequency of cyber-attacks, and this is a major area of concern for the sector.

Managing people risk and caring for employees’ mental and emotional health to ensure resilience is another aspect covered in-depth, and with creative solutions from the panel.

The Insurance Risk & Capital conference features four streams covering all aspects of risk and capital management, investment and climate issues for re/insurers in the Emea region.

Track 1 will focus on insurance and risk in a world after Covid-19 and examine the global risks and developments that CROs and insurance boards should be considering as part of their enterprise risk management strategies.

Track 2 will cover climate risk, sustainability and environmental, social and corporate governance.

Track 3 will concentrate on insurance regulation, as well as technological advances in risk management.

Finally, track 4 will explain what operational resilience will mean after Covid-19, as well as examining cyber risk, outsourcing and digital transformation in the face of disruption.
