Obtaining Cyber Insurance & Adopting a Security Incident Response Plan


As data breaches dominate the news and privacy regulations increase, it's more important than ever to have insurance for data loss, privacy breaches, and business interruption due to hacking, denial-of-service attacks, and IT system disruption. Join our panelists for an insightful discussion on what business leaders need to know about Cyber Liability Insurance and how it can be used to strengthen an organization’s overall security risk management strategy. 

This webinar provides participants with a unique perspective from compliance, legal, and insurance experts.  The discussion includes:

  • Challenges organizations face when purchasing cyber insurance
  • The importance of a comprehensive and effective security incident response plan when securing coverage
  • What cyber insurance typically does and does not cover
  • How legal counsel works with organizations during and after a breach, including the process of notice for a claim
  • An overview of recent cases and declaratory judgment actions related to cyber insurance

This webinar is the third in a series regarding data security and breach protection.  A replay of the event is available via the link on the left of the screen. A pdf is available here. Recordings of the first and second webinars are available via the links below:
