This Blog covers the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section's series of podcasts, teleconferences, and live programs dedicated to Disaster Preparedness and Response. It addresses issues arising out of disasters caused by foreign and domestic acts of terrorism, by negligent acts, by natural events and by threats to our cyber-security and will confront the issues of preparedness, risk management, recovery and response, liability, insurance, claims and litigation.
The second in a series of podcasts in the TIPS Disaster Preparedness and Response Initiative features Professor Jeffrey Addicott, the Director and founder of the Center for Law on Terrorism, at St. Mary's University, School of Law, in San Antonio, Texas. Professor Addicott discusses the emerging trends in the different forms of cyber attacks that our nation may experience. Professor Addicott will also be a panelist at the TIPS Fall meeting at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle Washington on October 13, 2011 as part of a three hour CLE on “Homeland Security 10 Years Later – How Innovation and Technology Have changed the Approach to Homeless Security Since the 9/11 Attack,” part of TIPS Chair Randy Aliment's year-long initiative designed to bring disaster awareness to a heightened level.
