Congratulations, you have purchased cyber risk insurance! But simply purchasing a cyber-insurance in addition to your traditional insurance coverage may not be enough to ensure that you’ll be covered for the range of losses that follow a cyber-attack. So how do you know if your business is really covered for a data breach or cybercrime?

Our panel experts will highlight key issues that fall through the cracks if you are not savvy about negotiating coverage. They’ll highlight risks you may never have thought about, offer insights on breach remediation and management, and flag obligations included in some policies that insureds must comply with to keep coverage in force.

This program was recorded as part of Corporate Counsel's Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference held on October 4th, 2018.
