Risk Conversation: Launch of a Risk Management Community

Chubb Insurance recently launched its new interactive resource and community addressing risk management challenges for businesses and individuals, Risk Conversation.  I think this is an important step in the right direction for the insurance industry! Risk Management Online Community

This industry is not well known for being innovative, so it is very encouraging to see Chubb leading the way.  The Risk Conversation website includes loss prevention information, blogs, and risk assessment tools that help users identify, understand and mitigate risk.

The Risk Conversation site features:

Risk assessors that help users identify potential loss exposures and test their risk management know-how;

Blogs that provide risk management insights, observations and tips from Chubb’s underwriting and residential & commercial loss prevention specialists, as well as from other risk management professionals who join the conversations;

Risk Management polls that gauge the public sentiment on timely risk issues; and

News commentary and analysis of current events that impact the risk management landscape.

There is a real need out there for good quality risk management resources as well as a general need to raise awareness about the importance and value of formal risk management.  I like this site because it has a lot of practical tools and information for everyone.
