Gray Reed's Darin Brooks spoke at an industry breakout session during the 2017 Energy & Construction Client Summit hosted by AIG in Austin, Texas, January 23-25, 2017. He participated in a panel discussion on additional insured issues.
The theme of the summit was: How Technological Innovations are shaping the risk management of Energy & Construction Industries in the Changing Face of a Global World. Technology is rapidly evolving and the implications on risk management are widespread. We will be taking an in depth look at the internet of things, and the technologies currently available to the energy and construction industries, and how they are promoting safety and changing the culture of organizations. We will also be looking at new threats posed by these technologies, and ways to handle and mitigate new exposures as they arise.
