The insurance industry is spinning with change driven by the world around us, including our partners and competitors, both new and traditional.

We face new and evolving risks shaped by factors including climate change, shifting societal norms, new technologies and their usage – or abuse, in the case of cybercrime. Customers’ expectations are continuously evolving in parallel.

New or updated business models, new approaches to managing risks, and new insurance products, often enabled by the latest technology, create fresh opportunities – but also generate challenges and risks of their own.

At ICTC2020, industry leaders and experts will define the next generation of insurance and risk management. Will the industry’s significant dependence on technology be its saving grace or its Achilles heel?

Explore the implications for achieving exceptional performance in insurance, not only today, but tomorrow – and beyond.

ICTC2020 will take place Tuesday, Feb. 25, and Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020. You can register for either day or both.
