Business Interruption 360*

If you've been wanting to learn more about business interruption, you will not want to miss this session chosen for the RIMS 2022, RISKWORLD conference. In a unique and entertaining format, an RWH Myers Senior Partner and a Paragon Risk Engineer will discuss all things business interruption. 

We’ll journey through pre-loss risk quantification with consideration of underwriting requirements and risk engineering loss expectancy estimates. This section will tackle supply chain concerns as well as the building blocks for business continuity planning.

Next, we’ll explore the impact of a loss including business interruption calculations, presentation, common adjustments, and the documentation needed to support a claim. We'll further explore the commonly misunderstood components including labor and extra expenses, and how they factor into a time element claim. We'll also dive into the emerging complexities of Contingent Business Interruption and Cyber Claims. 

We'll end off with what risk managers should know about their business interruption risks and welcome questions from the audience.
