Thomas F. Motamed, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CNA, yesterday welcomed more than 40 agents and brokers to the company’s first-ever Technology Cloud School , a half-day session designed to provide better insight into managing the risks of cloud computing.
“Technology is changing the way business gets done. Tools that connect businesses to their customers and suppliers are making us more efficient and more responsive. But these tools are also creating exposures to complex risks that didn’t exist a few years ago,” said Motamed during his welcoming remarks at the CNA Corporate Headquarters, 333 South Wabash, Chicago, IL.
“Working together, we need to understand this complexity, as well as the options for managing the inherent risks. And that’s what we are here to accomplish,” he added.
Professionals from CNA Information Technology (IT), Underwriting, Claim and Risk Control came together to facilitate the Cloud School. The agenda included examining trends in the enterprise software environment, discussing increased risks related to security, privacy and interruption of IT services, and exploring best practices for assessing and managing these risks in enterprise software vendor relationships.
This was the first of several Technology Cloud Schools that CNA will be hosting in cities throughout the United States in 2013 and 2014.
