This seminar will examine the contributing factors and look at ways in which they can be addressed.

Ogden Tables (discount rate changes on Personal Injury claims)

  • Tue 16 Jan 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
  • Quy Mill Hotel, Cambridge
    • Alan Chandler

This presentation is a must for anyone working within the general insurance industry as it covers arguably the most important topic to hit the industry in over ten years. The Ogden table changes will cost the UK insurance industry over £7 billion in a one-off adjustment and in excess of £2 billion per annum thereafter. Rates will rise by between 10-20% on a lot of classes of business, especially after the renewal of reinsurance treaties because reinsurance premiums are expected to double. It is essential brokers can explain the premium hikes to their clients and this presentation will enable them to achieve this, as well as providing underwriters and claims staff with a clear understanding of how their roles will be affected. The presentation is aimed at all levels and will be pitched to give a clear understanding for all.

  • Quy Mill Hotel, Cambridge
    • Steve McLaughlin, Steve Mac Media

Hacking is a very real threat for businesses of all sizes: cybercrime is estimated to cost business more than £21bn a year. You wouldn't leave your car unlocked. Yet we do with our most important business assets all the time - whether it's compromising data through unlocked computers or open files accessible to un-vetted contractors. Professional hackers use seven steps, some of which terrorists use to get to know an organisation. Understanding these, training your staff on how they can be hacked, is the best way to defend yourself.
