We’re back. Summer was great, but the academic year is officially underway and there is no shortage of events and topics to consider. Of course, the devastation and tragedy brought about by Hurricane Harvey is heart-wrenching. Coincidentally, it was almost exactly one year ago that I blogged about flood insurance and the Louisiana floods. Harvey leads us back to many of the same issues that I wrote about last year.
Risk and insurance headlines continue to debate the future of auto insurance as the reality of driverless automobiles draws closer. Cyber-security, ransomware, and data breaches still demand considerable risk management attention. AIG has a new CEO with considerable industry chops and he’s already making big moves. Drones are playing a large part in the claims process following Harvey.
Contrary to popular belief, risk and insurance is anything but boring. These are just some of the weighty issues that Ferris State University RMI students will be exploring in the months ahead. This is going to be fun.
