Join the Insurance 2025 Study Group on January 22 discussing the Internet of (Physical) Things and Insurance.
Businesses and consumers are taking to smart, connected objects.
At the recent Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas, there was one superstar present: the Internet of Things (IoT). Why the interest? The IoT holds the promise to make our personal and professional lives easier.
But what does the IoT mean for insurance? For two years, the Insurance 2025 Study Group (I2SG)† has been talking about the implications of connected physical objects on insurance. And the implications are big!
For the first time, you are invited to sit in on our next meeting. Patrick Vice, Partner at Insurance-Canada.ca will provide context and lead a free-wheeling discussion on:
- The penetration of IoT in business and personal environments
- What does the adoption of IoT mean...
- To underwriting?
- To risk management/loss control?
- To claims?
- To IT?
- Does the IoT change the risk profile?
- Does the IoT change the insurance product?
- What cyber risk exposures come with the IoT?
- And more.
As an attendee of this free webinar, you will have the opportunity of hearing an unscripted discussion among a group that covers a range of disciplines and interests and has no concerns about being provocative. You can also raise questions and provide your own input.
