Cyber Insurance - A Useful Tool in your Cybersecurity Arsenal

10:00 am - 11:00 am

Cyber insurance is still an emerging product in the insurance market since some insurers consider data breaches to be "intangible" causes not covered by their policies. As a backstop, cyber insurance can still be an important component of a company's Cybersecurity defense, and it is important to understand the potential claims as well as the limitations of these policies. This session will discuss the role of cyber insurance within a broader Cybersecurity corporate strategy and review what kind of coverage is available for cyber-related risks so businesses can understand and properly protect themselves against potential threats.

Practitioners will gain some practical tips from the Cyber Insurance panel, including how one can incorporate insurance into their broader cybersecurity strategy and understand the benefits and limitations of these policies.

GDPR Update - Where Do We Stand

This panel will discuss more recent guidance from Europe on GDPR compliance, and provide advice and guidance on compliance with regulators related to DSAR requests.
