In France alone, 2 billion connected objects are expected to be sold by 2020.“It is becoming increasingly important for risk managers to take into account the new risks introduced by disruptive technologies. Businesses are creating new products that affect the way to live and work and it is our role, as an insurer, to support these companies by providing solutions that allow them to keep innovating.”Speaking on the importance of attending and participating in industry events, Ms Sinz said: “Events such as Les Rencontres AMRAE, attended by France and Belgium’s leading risk managers, are important as they give us the opportunity to discuss those key risk issues that are affecting our clients today. We need to work together to address the big technological shifts impacting their businesses, such as automation and connected objects.”Ms. Sinz is also taking part in the “Wonderwomen” panel, where she will discuss gender diversity in insurance and share her experience.The 24th edition of AMRAE focusses on climate change and technology and will see over 2,000 risk professionals in attendance from across 32 different countries.
