5th Swiss Re Symposium on Data Protection: Technology, Privacy and Innovation

25 Sep 2018

Organised by Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd
Location: Rüschlikon/Zurich, Switzerland

About the event

The insurance industry is at a turning point. New technologies and business models are shaping the way we provide insurance solutions. Innovation is creating new opportunities for individuals and insurers, which are now able to operate more efficiently. Given this context, we need to reconsider our approach to compliance, which often lags behind the fast pace of technological developments.

At the event, we will explore what the future of technology holds for the insurance industry. We will hear from tech and insurance experts, who will share their insights about challenges and solutions when applying data protection and privacy compliance to new technology and innovation.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to network with other insurance, reinsurance, data protection, privacy, compliance, legal and technology professionals to discuss how to bridge the gap between what technology can deliver and what privacy requires.

Participation by invitation only.
