ASP and Lloyd’s – Cities in the Crosshairs: The Case for Investing in Resilience

share this

Date October 13, 2016
Time 12:00pm – 4:45pm, Cocktail Reception to Follow
Location Carnegie Hall, 881 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY



On September 3, 2015 Lloyd’s launched the City Risk Index, the first ever analysis of economic output at risk (GDP at risk) in 301 major cities from 18 manmade and natural threats over a ten-year period. The index includes: cyber-attack; terrorism; flood, freeze, heat, and other climate security risks; and market crash, among others.

ASP and Lloyd’s explored the implications of the Index at the ASP Risk Forum: Pathways to City Resiliency in February 2016, and the conversation continues this fall.

In an increasingly volatile world beset by man-made and natural emerging risks, the case for business and political leaders to build a more resilient future continues to grow.

Join American Security Project and Lloyd’s on October 13th in New York City in conversation and collaboration, bringing together key stakeholders to discuss how innovative partnerships can and should build greater resilience at the city level.

Conference Agenda

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM: Networking and Lunch


1:00 PM – 2:00 PM: A Global Risk Redux

A sweeping review of the global risk landscape and the long range implications of the unprecedented change the world is facing. Learn what keeps senior business and policy leaders awake at night as they share their views on the forces shaping our future and the imperatives to build resilience into our present thinking.


Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, ASP Chairperson

Inga Beale, CEO of Lloyd’s

Kathleen Hamm, Counselor to the Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury

Moderator: Dante Disparte, CEO of Risk Cooperative


2:00 PM – 2:15 PM: Networking Session/Break


2:15 PM – 3:15 PM: Resilient Collaboration

While the call to action on addressing complex risk grows in volume, best practice approaches and models for collaboration remain perilously distant. This panel brings together key practitioners and leaders from multiple sectors, each sharing their views on building market-oriented public-private solutions for building resilience at the city, state, national, and international levels.


LtGen. John G. Castellaw, USMC (Ret.) ASP Board Member

Chief Daniel Linskey, former Superintendent-in-Chief of Boston Police Department 

Fielding L. Norton III, Deputy Chief Enterprise Risk Officer of XL Catlin

Ommeed Sathe, Vice President of Impact Investments for Prudential

Moderator: BGen. Stephen A. Cheney, USMC (Ret.) CEO of ASP


3:15 PM – 3:30 PM: Networking Session/Break


3:30 PM – 4:30 PM: A Resilient City – New York’s Perspective

The iconic global city of New York is at once a financial capital and home to more than 8.4 million people. The people of New York, its businesses and public leaders have an uncanny ability to bounce back as evidenced by their responses to the tragic terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Super Storm Sandy, a massive black out in 2003, and others. This spring-like effect is a measure of New York’s resilience, and the subject of the final panel exploring what other cities can learn from New York’s experience.

Speakers Include:

Dan Zarrilli, New York’s Chief Resilience Officer and Senior Director, Climate Policy and Programs

Meghann Teubner, Director of Counterintelligence Analysis, NYPD

Glenn Dorr, Northeast Regional Director of Lloyd’s 


4:30 PM – 4:45 PM: Closing Remarks
