Cyber Risk and Liability Insurance: What Is It and Why You Need It
As data and internet availability have become crucial for businesses and in the public sector, protection of sensitive and confidential information is all the more essential, especially since attacks on computer systems have become more frequent and sophisticated. The interconnection of infrastructures means that one cyber-attack can affect many systems, potentially causing multiple losses across a wide matrix. Insurers, like all companies, are exposed to cyber risks, and more so through the insurance policies they write.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of experts drawn together by The Knowledge Group will discuss issues faced by insurers in managing cyber threats and providing insurance coverage for cyber risks. The panel will lay out the essentials of cyber liability insurance underwriting and claims intelligence while setting forth risk management protection strategies for insurers and their clients.
Key Topics Include
- Cyber insurance overview
- Federal and state legal framework
- Security breaches and identity theft
- Protection of intangible assets
