CPD podcast »

In this IIL reinsurance lecture Jonathan Wood talked about how the conflict in Syria is impacting the terrorism threat in Europe, the diversifying ‘home-grown’ terrorism threat and principal targets and tactics of terrorist attacks in Europe.

Jonathan described how governments and security forces are struggling to contain a pervasive wave of terrorism that has affected an ever-growing list of countries including amongst many others France, Germany, Belgium and Turkey. He explained that many factors are at play as part of this wider trend – such as how the conflict in Syria is impacting the terrorism threat in Europe and the diversifying ‘home-grown’ terrorism threat. This presentation analysed the principal targets and tactics of terrorist networks, and their impact on the insurance market.

By the end of this lecture members would have gained an insight into:

  • How the conflict in Syria is impacting the terrorism threat in Europe

  • Principal targets and tactics of terrorist attacks – including the ‘home-grown’ threat

  • Impact on the insurance market
