Sustained tensions in the United States, which have been exacerbated the pandemic, have created a perfect storm for harmful human behavior. Now more than ever, organizations must remember their responsibility to maintain safe environments for their people and the public. Join Beazley and CrisisRisk for a panel discussion on the changing risk landscape pertaining to the threat of violence and sexual abuse.

Over the last 10+ years, the insurance marketplace and the available coverages have changed dramatically, with many general liability carriers now only providing sub-limits or eliminating coverages entirely for assault and battery and sexual abuse. At a time when premiums are increasing and coverages are decreasing, insureds are looking for more services than ever. They need assistance with prevention, crisis communications, and rapid response, not just indemnification.

Note: All downloads and related contact information will be accessible to the webinar sponsor.
