About the Program

Big data and predictive analytics are transforming the way insurers underwrite insurance, adjust claims, investigate fraud, and work with regulators. New sources and types of information allow insurers to apply genuinely novel forms of reasoning. Big Data holds the potential of vastly improved customer service that could provide unprecedented efficiency, customer insight, and transparency. But it also opens gaps in information and expertise between insurers and their regulators and policyholders. These gaps make basic insurance operations more opaque, with results that will radically disrupt the practice of insurance law and litigation itself. Get an overview of how Big Data is collected and used throughout the insurance industry and learn how Predictive Analytics is being used in the claims handling process

You Will Learn

  • Where Big Data comes from
  • How it changes the mechanics of insurance operations
  • How it provides new approaches to old problems, such as fraud detection, claim evaluation and litigation strategy
  • The legal challenges insurers must address in obtaining or developing predictive analytic tools
  • The ways regulators plan to respond to these developments -- both within Connecticut and through national organizations

Who Should Attend

Attorneys of all experience levels and in all practice settings who want to learn about the role of data and predictive analytics in insurance will benefit from the Symposium.
