Cyber 101: What You Need To Know About Cyber Liability and Related Insurance Coverage

The Equifax data breach and news of other recent cyber-attacks has raised many concerns about protecting personal and financial information, steps that can be taken to proactively prepare for security threats, and where companies may be financially vulnerable.  Please join us on November 6, 2017 for an informative webinar on preparing for and protecting against data breaches.  We will discuss the different types of cyber threats and how attacks typically occur, as well as proactive policies, training, and technical safeguards to guard against these incursions.  We also will discuss legal obligations for responding to a data breach and how the insurance industry is responding to this ever-changing landscape of claims.

The webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. and end at 3:00 pm. As always, there is no charge for our webinar.

We hope to see you there!
