Webinar Recording: ERM and Pandemic Scenarios and Planning: How ERM Helps and COVID-19 Lessons To-Date

Presenters:
Sim Segal, Academic Director and Senior Lecturer in Discipline, ERM Program

Basil Rabinowitz, Deputy Academic Director and Lecturer, ERM Program

The COVID-19 pandemic is confronting organizations large and small with unexpected and unprecedented uncertainty. Many of them have little or no experience in making high-stakes decisions without supporting data, models, or risk management processes. However, rigorous analytical methods for such situations do exist in the government sector where, for the past 20 years, the US intelligence services have been using Structured Analytic Techniques on a daily basis to analyze complex, uncertain, high-stakes situations such as COVID-19.

In this webinar from April 21 2020, we discussed how organizations – particularly insurance companies – use ERM to imagine and plan for pandemics. We explored how typical pandemic risk scenarios and preparations are matching up with the COVID-19 pandemic to-date.
