Our presence at this yr’s ITC was a giant step up from final yr. Our Chief Insurance Officer, David Derigiotis, spoke on-stage for a panel on Catastrophic Risks, the place he spoke to the arrival of AI inside the insurance coverage area and past, and touched on different precise and perceived international threats to companies.

David fielded some viewers questions on knowledge privateness and the way synthetic intelligence might have an effect on the insurance coverage trade:

“A lot of legacy insurers, they’re doing it the old school way…The organizations at ITC are looking to marry Security Plus management with insurance and looking to do it in a more frictionless way… I think our industry is really leading the way in doing that. But I don’t think we can continue to operate in silos without having more advanced data analytics and risk management tools.”
