South Florida serves as a gateway for British companies to do business with Latin America. A fundamental requirement for the Financial Services industry is to manage risk and develop technology to keep consumer data secure. As the two leading financial centres, the US and the UK must work together to strengthen data security, while preserving the free spirit of international trade. This Panel will compare and contrast the similarities and differences in approach, technology, and regulation between Payments, Insurance, International Remittance within South Florida and the UK.
The scarcity of information is the main challenge facing loss adjusters in the Latin American cybercrime insurance segment
Cyber products have just recently been offered and marketed in Latin America after we started seeing major cyber-attacks on European and American companies. There have also been cyber-attacks in the Latam region, especially hacktivism, but incomparable to those seen in Europe and the USA.
Kennedys was the first British international insurance law firm to open a boutique office in Miami in 2010 as a hub to manage claims, regulatory issues, policy analysis and audits across the region.
Alex Guillamont, Head of Latin American & Caribbean Practice at Kennedys and one of the speakers at this seminar was relocated permanently to Miami in June 2010 to open the office and assist international insurers and reinsurers from within the region.
Nowadays Kennedys has a team of 10 insurance lawyers in Miami and associated offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, and long-standing relationships with leading insurance and reinsurance law firms in the rest of the region.
Join us and learn from top speakers about these business experiences.
