Cyber Risk Insurance Policies: Is Your Company Covered?

OnDemand Webinar (79 minutes)

Many companies go to considerable lengths to prevent cyber crime. For example, they may use anti-virus software, firewalls, encryption, and passwords to protect sensitive data. In spite of these efforts, cyber crime is on the rise. Indeed, we have all heard the stories about denial of service attacks shutting down online retailers and hackers stealing millions of consumers' credit card numbers, social security numbers and other sensitive private information. Moreover, the costs of responding to cyber crime can be staggering.

Thus, more companies are considering whether they should purchase insurance as another weapon in their anti-cyber crime arsenal. This course will provide a useful overview of cyber risk insurance, including what types of risks may be insured. We will review key policy terms and exclusions you should be aware of and explain the underwriting process and the state of the cyber risk market.
