Event Synopsis:

Businesses face evolving risks with regard to cyber security and data. Media coverage about high profile security breaches has heightened the awareness for all business to seek some type of protection generally described as cyber policies. A few years ago, the coverage was seen as a niche, luxury add-on, but the market has matured to bring down the cost and standardize coverage. Are these trends good or bad for businesses and insurance providers? Do the customary policies suit the customers’ needs and cover the risks prevalent today? What do businesses need to know when negotiating for these policies about their own risks and the policies themselves?

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders in cyber security risks and mitigation to help company executives answer these questions and understand all the important issues with respect to this vital topic. This live webcast is a must attend for all executives who need to be in the know with respect to cyber insurance policies.
