Eliminating the risk of a malicious attack is impossible but preparing for one is essential. In today’s world, threats come from many sources. Although shootings are all too often in the headlines, recent experience reminds us that devastation can also be wrought using seemingly everyday items such as knives and road vehicles. If an institution gets things wrong the liability on the owners and management for a non-staff member harmed in an attack can be significant. In this session we will take a deep dive into the three core pillars of coverage including prevention services, crisis management services and general liability/primary liability.
