The UK government recently published a consultation paper outlining plans to make London a hub for insurance linked securities transactions. But what are these transactions? And what effect will these proposals have?
Featuring presentations from leading Hogan Lovells practitioners, as well as representatives from HM Treasury and HM Revenue & Customs (see below), this webinar will provide an overview of insurance linked securities transactions, including how they are used and why. It will take a look at the government consultation paper and discuss how the proposals might interact with both EU capital markets regulation and EU insurance regulation.
The session will also examine insurance linked securities in the US, from both a regulatory and transactional perspective, to see what insights the UK might glean from a more developed market.
We are especially pleased to announce that the Hogan Lovells presenters will be joined by Lee O'Rourke, head of the insurance linked securities project at HM Treasury and John Stokes, policy & technical adviser at HM Revenue & Customs, who will offer a unique insight into the government's proposals.

The confluence of sophisticated cyber criminals, white hats and technological change means organisations are increasingly exposed to weaknesses and vulnerabilities in their networks, devices and applications.
With a combination of expert security commentary and vulnerability trends, SureCloud will reveal the sophisticated nature of the latest attacks and what the future may hold. We will focus on modern exploits that go beyond the typical network and web application attack vectors.

Rishi Dave, CMO of Dun & Bradstreet, shows how marketers achieve remarkable results through Account Based Marketing (ABM). Account Based Marketing techniques upset the concept of “generic” relationship development. Instead, collaborative sales and marketing that’s “data inspired” strengthens the creation of personalised experiences delivered through the content supply chain. In fact, a study conducted by a well-known analyst group found that companies using D&B data manage campaigns 46% more effectively, close deals 29% more effectively, and generate 10% more revenue.

Traditional methods of identity verification are contributing to lengthy and expensive KYC and onboarding processes. Technological advances, regulatory requirements and business necessity are leading organisations to a point where they have to rethink the way identity works.
With so many financial services institutions embracing digital, the big challenge is bringing together information about each client, from multiple systems, to create one accurate client identity. Achieving this, while demonstrating robust and compliant KYC capabilities, is causing costs to spiral.
In this exclusive webinar Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Identity & KYC conference, catches up with leading Identity expert Rob Laurence, Director of Innovate Identity, to gain some practical insights into how these challenges can be tackled.
Questions will include:
1) How close are we to being able to access digital information about identity in a consumable and trusted way, across industries?
2) Which technologies should organisations be looking into, to support their identity and KYC processes?
3) Is the blockchain a complete solution for improved identity verification, or just part of a wider solution?
4) How can institutions ensure a user-friendly and compliant KYC and onboarding process?
5) What are the challenges and benefits of putting in place a ‘financial services passport’?

Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities. Your department’s audit plan should be a well-balanced examination that covers regulatory requirements and aligns key risk areas within the organization. However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?
The objective of this presentation is to help internal audit professionals identify emerging trends in need of attention so that auditors can better execute the department’s strategic focus on risk.

Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

As a manager, you are likely adept at handling crises on the job. But how do you handle people in crisis? Whether positive or negative, any life-altering event can affect how your employees work, and as the boss, you may be the last person to know. What can you do to diagnose changes in employee performance before it’s too late?
Join Ann Butera, President of the Whole Person Project, Inc. and Protiviti in this webinar to discuss how to mitigate the effects of your employees‘ personal lives on their work lives. We will discuss how the inherent boss/employee relationship can lend itself to misunderstanding, how to recognize the symptoms and warning signs of employees’ crises, and how you can adjust your management style to deal with this.

Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
