 Leveraging interdisciplinary care     
Compounding global risks

Reacting to catastrophes

2017’s unprecedented extreme weather, fires and other natural and manmade disaster events will continue to test underwriting performance, stretch resources in restoring disrupted supply chains, and impact timelines for rebuilding infrastructures. We have seen how vital it is to be ready to respond and change direction if needed. Having the right disaster recovery plan and partners in place will continue to be important for businesses and property owners worldwide as they face the potential for catastrophes in the coming year.

Preparing for the threat of emerging risks

The emerging risks we prepare for in 2018 will continue to push the boundaries of our resources and our resilience like never before. From cyber threats like data intrusion and ransomware arising from our connected economy and society, to terrorism, both internationally and domestically, we must consider new ways to protect and prime our people, property and brands.

Protecting first responders

Our reliance on first responders as a line of defense against risks of all types becomes even more critical in the face of environmental and social change. Caring for first responders’ overall physical and behavioral health is one way we can increase our preparedness to react in times of crisis.
