The latest Clements Worldwide Risk Index highlighted that concerns over risks from terrorism have doubled over the past 6 months and 16% of organizations had losses due to political unrest over the last year. The humanitarian aid organizations that completed the survey had even more disturbing results with 25% of humanitarian aid organizations reporting losses due to political unrest over the last year and 1 in 5 delaying expansion of their work.

Cyber terrorism, and the subsequent liability that follows, was ranked as the top concern by 27% of respondents and the source of highest losses by 22% --another category where attacks are becoming more common and unpredictable.

Panelists for the event will include:

  •     Smita Malik, VP of Special Programs & Risks at Clements Worldwide
  •     Josh Rogin, Bloomberg View national security and foreign affairs columnist and CNN political analyst
  •     Laura Schauble, VP of Risk Management at ACDI/VOCA

The program will start with a short presentation by Clements Worldwide President Chris Beck on the top risks Clements is monitoring in 2016.
