Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The market for catastrophe bonds has boomed in the past year and is likely to keep growing as investors search for higher returns.

But so much else has changed, said Keith Osborn, a federal security director for the TSA, which was created in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
