Insurance Journal Predictions Spot On

The Insurance Journal came out with a prediction for 2013 that when now analyzed makes the publication have insurance credibility.    Their cyber-risk predictions were spot on.

(It is sometimes necessary to veer off from Workers Compensation when something occurs that stands way out from the pack).

Even though their prediction bordered on the obvious, their  Editor-In-Chief  Andrea Wells’s comment on cyber- risk are chilling.   With all the recent headlines on Target, Michaels, Neiman Marcus and other retailers’  data thefts, the article was very accurate in nature.I came across some old publications that I saved over 2012 and 2013 when I upgraded from Windows 7 to 8.1.

I was cleaning out old research documents for the blog when I came across  their publication – Looking Ahead to 2013.The next article in the Insurance Journal also predicted very heavy droughts in certain areas such as California.   When looking at the article online, I just realized that you can buy the issue or access it if you were a subscriber at the time.That being said, I will not reprint any of the articles in the blog.  The link to the publication can be found here.
