A National Gold award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors and three Regional awards stamp our 2012 coverage.
Risk & Insurance® is proud to have garnered a national award for our Most Dangerous Emerging Risks issue that was published in April of 2012. The issue offered scenarios and analyses reflecting some of the most dangerous risks lurking on the horizon, poised to impact organizations around the globe.
"This project is one of the best examples of our team's drive, talent and creativity," said Matthew Kahn, Risk & Insurance® publisher and executive editor.
The risks profiled included the dangers posed by the presence of pharmacy drugs in U.S. water systems; the use of social media as a business-destroying weapon; the supply chain impact of typhoons and other menaces.
In addition, the magazine won three regional awards in the Northeast Regional editorial contest from the American Society of Business Publication Editors.
The awards, which were announced in July, recognize the best editorial content in business-to-business publishing.
National Gold - Special Section
Most Dangerous Emerging Risks (April 2012)
By Matt Kahn, Cyril Tuohy, Dan Reynolds, Jared Shelly, Matthew Brodsky and Joel Berg
This special section looked at new risks facing a broad array of industries.
Social media was one emerging threat; in the hands of disgruntled consumers, Facebook and Twitter have the power to spread bad word of mouth and cripple any business.
In the health care world, on the other hand, lengthening life expectancies resulting from medical advances pose a risk for long-term care insurers, Social Security and employers offering healthy pensions.
A third risk, agroterrorism, could ruin ranchers and farmers and devastate food supply chains if a coordinated attack were to take place. Expert input helped our team analyze these risks, look at how they could worsen in the future and explore ways industries could respond.

A Believer in People (December 2012)
By Dan Reynolds, editor-in-chief
This profile of retiring Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc. president and CEO Brian Duperreault tells how the insurance veteran bolstered MMC when he joined the company in 2008. After more than 20 years at AIG and a stint at ACE, Duperreault was called on to steady MMC after it was rocked by accusations from regulators and a talent drain. By focusing on why key team members had stayed with the firm, rather than the negative, he put the company's best foot forward and positioned it for future success.

Solvency II Where Are You? (April 2012)
Has Bermuda Lost Its Class?"
By Roger Crombie, columnist
Crombie's April 2012 column delivered a scathing opinion on the pointlessness and improbability of Solvency II. Due to Europe's "amorphous" nature and the powerlessness of the European Parliament, SII is likely to never come to fruition.
The latter column detailed the new batch of reinsurers cropping up in Bermuda that break from the corporate format.
