There have been hard markets before, there have been recessions before, but never have the two emerged with such force at the same time. Policyholders desperate for savings will be receiving the unwelcome news of significant premium increases.

The door of client inertia will be swung wide open, presenting fantastic new business opportunities, as well as offering serious threats to renewal books.

This webinar, delivered by Alan Chandler, Chartered Insurer, is a follow on from his incredibly well received presentation "The Perfect Storm - seven reasons why we're going to get the hardest market in a generation". 

Alan will explain what constitutes a hard market and ten things brokers will need to do to maximise opportunities in these unique trading conditions. Many of the best brokers in the UK attribute their success to the last hard market of 2001. It became a turning point from which they never looked back. There will be big winners and losers again in 2020 just like there was 19 years ago.

Data to June 2020 shows the immediate and continued impacts of COVID-19 on cyber claims. UK cyber claims decreased by 25% in Q2 compared to Q1, however cyber risks continue to be a significant challenge for businesses, with a number of new ransomware gangs emerging. Large organisations, in particular, have seen more ransomware incidents in the first half of 2020 than the whole of 2019 and we expect this to at least double by the end of the year*. 

Mark Fawcett and Luke Fardell from Control Risks, Hiscox’s primary incident response partner, will outline the trends and common types of ransomware attacks that Control Risks are seeing and will show a live demonstration of a supply chain ransomware attack.

Helping your Technology clients claim tax incentives with Luke Hamm, CEO, GovGrant and Tom Dixon, Head of Technology, Hiscox. 

If your clients are in the Technology sector they may be able to claim £000’s back - join this webinar to find out how you can help your clients through our partnership with GovGrant, which provides Hiscox clients with access to a full range of R&D tax relief and IP services at preferential rates. 

Here’s what clients have been saying about GovGrant:

“We are so pleased with the GovGrant service that we now introduce companies within our network who are unaware of the scheme or did not believe they qualified for R&D tax credit and relief.”

 “My words of advice would be; you may think that only scientific or manufacturing type companies qualify for R&D tax credits but that couldn’t be further from the truth, as every kind of business implements new processes, procedures and systems that are highly likely to attract the Tax credit. We paid on a no win, no fee basis so we had nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

Mark Fawcett and Luke Fardell from Control Risks – Hiscox’s primary incident response partner, take a deep dive in to one of our most interesting claims from earlier this year.

This was – on the face of it - just a ransomware attack against a small business, but it also involved a case of mistaken identity, multiple assailants and several other twists and turns along the way. Mark and Luke bring to life how any company can find themselves in the crosshairs of attackers, but that recovery isn’t just as simple as plugging in a backup, and how having cyber insurance can prove invaluable.
