Strategy Power Session: The Digital Transformation Playbook — Rethink Your Business for the Digital Age
Every business that started before the internet now faces the same challenge — how to transform to compete in a digital economy. In his new book, globally recognized digital expert David Rogers argues that digital transformation is not about technology, it’s about upgrading strategic thinking. Drawing on case studies from Walmart, Disney, Domino’s Pizza, and The New York Times, David shows how traditional businesses need to rethink their approaches to strategy in five domains — customers, competition, data, innovation, and value. In “The Digital Transformation Playbook” and this session, David provides a practical framework to help you rethink your own organization and unlock growth in the digital age.

Emerging Issues Power Session: Cybersecurity — Protecting Your Company from the Inevitable
There is a theory that there are two types of companies: those who have been hacked, and those who don’t know they have been hacked. According to a study by the University of Maryland, 64% of companies have experienced web-based attacks and, on average, a hack occurs every 39 seconds. Given these staggering statistics, how can companies prepare for the inevitable and protect their assets? This informative session will share lessons learned from real-life data-security crimes from the preeminent voice in cyber security.

  2. Hail – The $10 Billion Risk
    Just a decade ago, average annual hailstorm losses were estimated at less than $1 billion, but now we see annual losses approaching $10 billion. As insurer losses continue mounting year after year, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) has initiated a long-term, ground-breaking research program focused on hail. The IBHS hail research program has developed a new test method to provide a better link to real-world performance of asphalt shingles and highlight high quality products. This session will describe the test method, the state-of-the-art field datasets on hailstone characteristics that support it and provide a glimpse into how to better understand and manage this risk.
