Trends in terror

The international security outlook since September 11 and its effect on the airline and marine sectors is the subject of a talk at the Insurance Institute of London later this month.

The lecture will consider the long-term terrorist trends that can be expected, the likelihood that the US-led campaign in Afghanistan will destroy al-Qaeda, the threat of other terrorist groups adopting similar tactics and where the threat to marine and aviation targets is most likely to come from. It will highlight how the world has changed. It will seek to cover risk analysis, management and mitigation to assist insurance markets in the future and enable the potential benefits for all involved to be realised.

The event takes place on December 19 at the Lloyd&#39s Building, London. Tel: 020 7600 1343 December 17
