Evaluating Risks Elevated due to Covid-19: Use of E-signature, Crime, and Firm Management Liability (brought to you by AON)


The impact of the worldwide pandemic and the resulting economic downturn has made it a challenging time to run a business. Remote work environments and lockdowns mean less time spent interacting with clients and co-workers and more dependence on electronic platforms to conduct business. The pandemic’s adverse impact on the economy has likewise resulted in businesses having to take more aggressive approaches towards increasing revenue as well as altering staffing and management structures. Such a dynamic business environment increases your risk of claims alleging firm mismanagement and even unfair or illegal business practices, such as employee theft. Can your firm successfully adapt to this new norm?

In this session, you will gain a better understanding of management and employee theft liability exposures as well as how to properly use e-signatures so that you can take the appropriate steps to mitigate exposure of your firm.
