What do you believe is the most under-the-radar emerging risk today?

“The most under-the-radar emerging risk today is the lack of investment that organizations are making in risk thinking and developing risk management tools to respond to risk drivers such as shifting business models and cultural norms: The emerging risk of not planning for emerging risk!”

“Data security isn’t just about protecting against criminals remotely breaking into computers with encryption and software. Given the broad definition of PII, it’s important to be mindful that losing things such as customer lists, simple documents, job applications, and appointment books can lead to data-security issues that expose businesses to claims.”

Simon Keshishian, Senior Director of Risk Management and Risk Counsel, Red Bull. CLM Fellow since 2010.

“InsurTech. The NAIC says that there are 1,500 startups in the works and Kentucky’s DOI has the first ‘sandbox’ for regulatory innovation. I look for some marriage of parametric/ILS products for consumers—or, at least, much smaller organizations. There is a wonderful opportunity for this in the private flood market.”

John Burkholder, Director of Risk and Insurance, Tampa International Airport. CLM Fellow since 2018.

“I am anticipating an increase in miscellaneous professional liability E&O claims in connection with the growth of the 3D printing industry. The 3D design is the blueprint for the future product, thus designers have a risk of liability in the event of a recall of unsafe products.”
