Webinar: Reducing the risk of innovation in the Tech sector

Tech webinar bannerIn an age of disruption, technology companies are consistently at the forefront of innovation. But this innovation can bring with it some unique challenges.

The increasing complexity of overlapping technology coupled with sector growth, leads to new liabilities and interconnected risks, such as credit and contractual risk. We are pleased to host this webinar, in association with Marsh Commercial, to explore the subject in more detail, focusing on the potential implications and solutions to these risks.

We will be joined by Anthony McKinnon who works with Marsh Commercial in the Trade Credit Practice, who will talk to us about credit risk, and the unique issues facing the technology sector. Tom Dixon, Head of the Technology Sector at Hiscox, an insurer with over 50,000 technology clients in the UK, will also be on hand to illustrate points around contractual risk – especially in an economic downturn.

Date: Wednesday 21st October
Time: 10.00 – 11.00am 
Venue: Zoom
