Letter from our Co-Chairs, Gail Bartholomew and Toni Herwaldt

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”  Jiddu Krishnamurti

And we have a great opportunity for you to continue your EDUCATION about Risk Management.  The days are counting down.  Have you signed up yet?  The Chicago and Mid-Illinois Chapters of RIMS look forward to seeing everyone September 23rd and 24th at the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile for the 2019 Chicagoland Risk Forum.

The speakers have been chosen and are ready to share their knowledge.  Get a chance to listen to the Chairman of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, Mike Brennan, talk about facts and figures of WC in Illinois.  Hear industry professionals share their knowledge on everything from Active Shooters, Cyber Threat Decision Making, International Business Challenges, to Cannabis, Claim Evaluation and Social Engineering Fraud, just to name a few.  There will be a panel discussion lead by insurance industry leaders and a Rapid Fire session that will be fun for all!

Risk professionals, brokers, insurers, vendors and anyone else that touches the insurance industry don’t want to be left out of the two full days of learning tracks.  Sign up today and we’ll see you there!

Most businesses rely on a network to collect, store, transfer and dispose of sensitive data. From Social Security Numbers, W-2 forms, payment cards, and intellectual property, securing that data continues to be a challenge as hackers can easily monetize this data on the black market.
