From cars, to buildings, to health devices, to manufacturing and everything in between, the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way we interact with our environment and each other. Already, connected devices outnumber people on earth and their usage is only expected to increase

But what do these social and technical changes mean for the insurance industry in Canada?

This seminar will wade through the buzz and get to the bottom of how IoT technologies are poised to disrupt the insurance industry and create new opportunities and threats. Presenters George Wray and Edona Vila, lawyers at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, will share their expertise in product liability and insurance, covering matters such as:

-  Potential types of claims that may surface

-  Trends in the development jurisprudence south of the border

-  How to prepare for the evolving nature of claims

-  Implications of IoT technology failures and considerations for claims handling

Ideal for brokers, underwriters, claims and insurance professionals, you’ll gain an enhanced appreciation of the types of claims that may be advanced against and by insureds in relation to connected device failures.
