01

Cyber Risk

In the ever-changing, undeniably-digital world that we live in today, cyber threats are all around us. As a result, cyber threats cannot be treated and viewed in the same light as other, more traditional risks. It is therefore crucial that businesses implement tools and technology to stay one step ahead in identifying their cyber security vulnerabilities.

02

Disruptive Technology

The pace at which disruptive technologies are arriving is accelerating and changing how we live. Maintaining a firm grasp on technology that has the power to significantly enhance or improve the way our customers, partners or businesses operate is immensely important to the insurance industry at large.

03

Climate Change

The deep lying impact of climate change is a concern for everyone, including leading insurers across the globe. As the climate clock continues to tick faster than ever before, leveraging climate change innovation is critical to the future of insurance, especially as we face the scary reality that lies ahead.

04

Computer Vision

One of the most powerful and compelling subsets of AI is computer vision and it’s importance lies in the problems it can be used to solve. By using computer vision accurately, insurers are able to better navigate the complexities involved in understanding their customers as well as simplifying procedures and streamlining operations throughout various stages of the insurance value chain.
