Newark, Calif. - March 13, 2014 RMS, the world's leading catastrophe risk management firm, today announced that the Emerging Risks Scenarios for Risk Management seminar organized by the Cambridge Centre of Risk Studies, supported by RMS and in collaboration with Oxford Economics, will take place on Thursday, March 20 2014. The one-day seminar will be held at the Cambridge University Judge Business School.

The seminar brings together senior insurance industry risk experts, policy-makers, economists and scientists to discuss the potential impact of extreme cyber attacks, geopolitical conflicts and pandemics on the world economy, business operations and investment portfolios.

Guest speakers Éireann Leverett, senior security consultant at IOActive, and Joshua Wallace, co-founder of Cytora, will join Robert Muir-Wood, chief research officer at RMS, and senior executives from Lloyds, Willis Analytics, Zurich Insurance Group, Munich Re, SCOR, Catlin, Hiscox and XL to consider best practices for the business management of the emerging risks.

Dr. Michael Maran, chief science officer at Catlin, said, “Emerging risks are a major issue for large global companies like Catlin, and one we take very seriously. Research groups like the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies help provide new insights into potential threats through their research, and make a significant contribution to emerging risk management.”

“RMS is a key supporter of the Centre of Risk Studies and their work to establish a framework for modeling economic and societal risks,” said Andrew Coburn, senior vice president at RMS and founder and director of the advisory board for the Centre for Risk Studies. “This important seminar provides the industry with stress test scenarios for managing three key emerging risks: cyber attacks, geopolitical conflicts and pandemics.”
