Speaker Presentation: Intro to Cyber Insurance
Topic: Intro to Cyber Insurance
Cyber risk management is something that continues to evolve with the threat landscape as well as innovations in processes and technology. One of these new innovations is the emergence of cyber insurance. While it is new in terms of insurance products it has been around for several years and is quickly developing into something that many commercial organizations are starting to consider. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the cyber insurance marketplace, the underwriting process and a shallow dive into the coverage provided by a typical policy.
