Cyber insurance is a necessity for companies, such as health facilities and retailers, who handle sensitive information. Left vulnerable to ransomware attacks or computer hacking, these organizations could incur massive damage in monetary losses and data security. Most organizations are now adding cyber insurance to their risk management programs as a way to mitigate those risks. This seminar will address recent issues that have ensued from insurers denying cyber-insurance claims, breach remediation and management, and the underwriting process.
