The Gathering Front: New Realities of Terrorism Risk Sponsored by Chartis
Recently, the world received a stark reminder that terrorism is not linked to one place in the world or one ideology. Norway, which had not been a target of terrorism and historically has experienced very little crime of any sort, was the scene of a one-day rampage that took nearly 80 lives. Terrorism can occur anywhere in the world at any time; any person, business or country can be its target. It can occur on land, in the air or in the water, and in food supplies. It can be directed against physical structures and even against the largely unseen computer networks.
In the face of these uncertainties, risk managers must reassess every aspect of their operations. They must look for vulnerabilities in their plants and offices and in their supply and distribution networks. They must look to safeguard their employees and their data. And they must look to insurance strategies that match their exposures, in every corner of the globe.
This Advisen report, The Gathering Front: New Realities of Terrorism Risk, sponsored by Chartis, offers risk managers practical insights into various facets of terrorism as they continue to develop plans to protect employees, physical assets and data, wherever they may be around the world.
