CEM 一 Aligning with the Overall Resilience Mission for the Insurance Industry
As the critical event risks are evolving, insurers need to assess risks, mitigate their impacts, and ensure resilience for sustainability
Key take aways
- Insurers must detect threats to their business operations from a number of catastrophic risks.
- Emergency response teams need to adopt AI-based CEM technology to fight every kind of critical event.
A broader combination of features, including visual risk intelligence, crisis communications, and incident alerting are useful to mitigate impacts of the risk in real-time.The resilience and future growth for insurers resides in their ability to combat challenges. Owing to the different factors contributing to insurance service disruption and consumer grievances, leaders are seeking help to emerging business risks. The harsh impacts of the COVID-19 have resulted in pandemic and disrupted business operations at large. The unpreparedness to tackle the sudden COVID-19 turmoils made insurance services unavailable for users, triggering huge financial losses for the insurance industry. The blocker to insurance underwriting, investment, and other key service portfolios, however, is already a reason of concern because of natural catastrophe or man-made business risks. The unprecedented magnitude of resilience risks resulted in leaders finding ways that could help them minimize the impacts of the severity of catastrophic losses or pandemic.The transition to a digital ecosystem where leaders can leverage the power of AI/ML-based critical event management tools can guide them better to run their businesses and fulfill the customer demand. Insurance and its economic environment always need data-driven decisions to move along with the changes. By helping detect what is happening with the occurrence of the critical events, the right CEM tool helps achieve data-driven business decisions and align with the customer expectations.
Mitigating the implications of evolving critical event risks
Unknown with the unwavering impacts of the COVID-19 disease, insurance companies fail to rise to the challenges in the beginning. As time has passed by, it was observed that leaders across different industries are trying to cope with the evolving situations. In most cases, however, they have faced challenges. The long lockdown imposed across territories and boundaries impacted the supply chain services. Insurers were unable to adapt to the new working style overnight. So, the cross-border seizure or month-long shutdown of logistics operations added to the supply chain disruptions . Paper documentations, claim procedures that led to customer service failure were a major reason for the insurance companies to eagerly wait for the supply chain procedures to become normal.The COVID-19 impacts are still raging, and supply chain management is one system which is continuing to suffer due to this. So, we can suspect that insurers can have more risks due to the ongoing challenges.
Using an artificial intelligence-powered critical event management system, security leaders can at least detect the severity of risk to their business operations. IoT-connected devices can signal threats to Zapoj dashboard and help analyze what is going to happen to their business processes. The predictive analytics actually help design the future process and mitigate the impacts to improve customer experience.
Seamless productivity and efficiency for employees
The insurance industry always focuses on customer satisfaction, while boosting the nation’s economy. This requires insurance to continually support their IT systems, and critical equipment, so that employees can have all necessary tools to serve their customers without any glitch.However, the high ingestion of IT tools and applications has raised threats to cybersecurity, which is often the reason for IT system failure . Alongside this, employees can see business disruptions due to the critical equipment failure . Both these incidents are critical for employees and stakeholders to resolve at scale to resume operations. Industry has long experienced billions of dollars to be stashed away in ransomware settlement. On the other hand, if stakeholders delay in resolving these issues, the infringement of data could be threatening to the privacy of customers and their business reputations.

Minimizing impacts of endless operational risks to insurance procedures
To maintain financial stability for customers and process claims with less friction, insurers need to act and react in all critical situations. Climatic risks, man-made disasters, and chemical spills, and many other forms of industrial risks can make their disaster preparedness strategy weak and ineffective if not supported by AI-based CEM.Facility disruptions can cause operational inefficiencies for indefinite periods, which prevent insurers from ensuring a better workplace to resume work. Unpredictable critical events such as a sudden fire breakout or active shootout can unleash threats to life and business operations.
