The insurance industry of the country along with other industries whose activities are fundamentally exposed to risks, will have an excellent opportunity to participate in the 24th N-COID to learn new knowledge and update their expertise on the issues such as modern methods of risk management, risk assessment and modeling, national catastrophe risk management, development of safety and prevention culture, enterprise risk management, risk and insurance management in large industries like oil, gas, energy, and petrochemicals, the standards and requirements for risk management, the role of IT in risk management, and etc.” Dr. Safari, Head of Insurance Research Center stated.
