12:05 – 12:50 p.m.     Cyber Attacks Won’t Affect Us—Building the Case for Protection of Corporate Proprietary Data
As cyber attacks become increasingly sophisticated, frequent and far reaching, every company, large or small, will at some point be impacted (either directly or through one of their third-party vendors/providers).  With data thefts compromising sensitive information, there is no denying third party attacks are a problem and need immediate action.  While typically this issue falls within most company’s IT department, the general counsel’s office should also be aware of all network vulnerabilities and be sure that their company and its employees have all the resources and defenses available and in use.  This panel will provide an overview of various cyber attacks to be concerned about, why the company’s leadership team needs to spend the time and money now to insulate their business and strengthen defenses before it’s too late as well as how to present the case to the company leadership team to ensure your company’s network is safe.

A cybersecurity event is not only a concern affecting the daily business operations and the business bottom line but can also impact directors and officers as new regulations and shareholder and consumer lawsuits threaten the C-suite.  This panel will provide insight into how to obtain a well-crafted cyber security insurance policy that meets your company needs, how to trigger coverage, and ensure contractual compliance if required by customers, vendors or other business needs.  The panel will also address premium cost expectations as well as common gaps in cyber insurance as well as how to fill them.
