Innovative solutions to tackle your unique exposures

As the global threat of political violence and terrorism continues to evolve, so too must the risk management strategies you use to mitigate against these unpredictable perils.

In recent years, while the threat of transnational, religious extremism has remained prominent, we have also seen an uptick in violent acts by political extremists and other domestic actors. The global spotlight on widespread civil unrest has highlighted potential pitfalls in risk management strategies, meaning the need for robust, bespoke solutions is more important now than ever.

News and Insights

Fixed fire protection systems such as sprinklers are an effective way to control or suppress a fire in its early stages, limiting the potential loss to the property and the business, as well as the risk to life. However, to be effective, fire protection systems need to be available (not impaired), reliable (maintained) and adequate. Fire protection impairments continue to be one of the most common reasons for sprinkler failure and this risk needs to be addressed with a robust fire protection impairment programme.Inside Risk - Fire Protection Impairment Management

The potential pitfalls of green hushing

A growing number of companies are choosing not to publicise details of their climate change targets to avoid scrutiny, accountability, and potential lawsuits. The strategy labelled “green hushing” is a reaction to a series of greenwashing allegations and legal challenges businesses have faced, but it comes with its own risks.A growing number of companies are choosing not to publicise details of their climate change targets to avoid scrutiny, accountability, and potential lawsuits.

AI risks: what directors and officers need to know

All new technologies carry risks when introduced on an enterprise level. Artificial intelligence (AI) is no exception, and directors and officers may find themselves in the crosshairs should negative repercussions arise from the use of such tools. 

To be prepared for the potential regulatory scrutiny or claims activity that comes along with the introduction of a new technology, it is imperative that boards carefully consider the introduction of AI, and ensure sufficient risk mitigation measures are in place.
