11/27/18, 9:00 AM
About this event
Natural disasters, cyber-attacks, and pandemic diseases are just some of the many catastrophic events that threaten communities with loss of life and devastating financial damage. We may not be able to avoid such calamities altogether, but with the help of catastrophe modeling we can calculate the risk posed by these events and better prepare for their arrival.
In this half-day seminar, learn how the challenging field of catastrophe modeling informs decision-making in the insurance industry. This discipline fuses together knowledge of statistics, engineering, meteorology, seismology and other sciences. Attendees should have a basic understanding of statistics in order to gain the most from this event.
