Dear Newsletter Subscriber:

In July, I participated in a terrorism threat analysis workshop hosted by the AIR Worldwide Terrorism Model Team.  AIR Worldwide assembled a team of experts to update the terrorism threat database.  This model provides the threat scenarios that are applied to assess risk exposure for AIR Worldwide property and workers’ compensation insurance customers.

We all know that insurance plays an important part in our personal and business lives.  The AIR Terrorism Model is widely used and has become more important as The Terrorism Risk Insurance Act is being debated in Congress.  I hope this provides insight into this important aspect of terrorism risk mitigation.
