11:00am – 11:45am // The Underwriting Process Laid Bare
It is becoming more difficult for carriers to collect the most relevant information and to assess the best risks for their portfolios. This session will use case studies of cyber risk applications to address the underwriting process – from application to binding a quote. What are underwriters looking for in a ‘good’ risk? What standards are they applying to differentiate and rate risks? What happens when you come to renew a policy with a claim on it?
11:45am – 12:30pm // Navigating Service Offerings
Annual security assessments and data breach tabletop exercises are valuable tools. What should you do, how often and with whom? How can your insurer help you through services offered in conjunction with cyber insurance policies? This session will offer practical advice for loss prevention and mitigation, and explain the important role that insurers can play.
11:00am – 11:45am // First Party Exposures: Beyond Insuring Data Loss
Cyber-related threats to tangible assets are on the rise; business interruption and systems failures are just some of the ways that revenue can be impacted from a cyber attack. This session will address how these losses happen, including some scenario analysis, outlining the consequences of tangible assets being at risk. The panel will also discuss the insurance market’s response to covering tangible and intangible assets in their policies – how is this developing and are the solutions meeting client’s needs?
11:45am – 12:30pm // The Market Response: Policy Developments
How have needs and expectations of cyber insurance buyers changed in recent years? Are underwriters responding to these changes? This session will examine the range of cyber exposures beyond a data breach, including cyber-related property damage and bodily injury, cyber extortion, account takeovers, spear phishing attacks, and business interruption and contingent business interruption, explain how these exposures are viewed by insurance buyers, and assess how well the insurance market is doing in providing coverage in a highly dynamic threat environment.
11:00am – 11:45am // Cyber Extortion: How to Handle It
Ransomware, Spear Phishing and social engineering are increasingly used in sophisticated attacks, targeted at specific employees who are in a position to release corporate assets into social engineers’ devious possession. This session looks at who is holding your data to ransom through ransomware, hacktivism and extortion – and how they are monetizing it. We will ask the golden question – do you pay? This session will give you top tips on best practices that companies can implement to prevent this type of attack.
11:45am – 12:30pm // Cyber War Game Breach Simulation
The military does it, the government does it – increasingly corporations are doing it… Cyber war games are becoming a crucial part of testing your company’s responsiveness and resilience in the face of a ‘live’ cyber event. This session will bring a team of experts to work through a mock cyber incident with our conference audience. Using real scenarios, the panel will discuss the possible causes of action to be taken during a data breach incident and assess their consequences. The audience will learn some best practices for crisis preparedness and response.
|12:30 pm - 2:00 pm|
|2:00 pm - 3:15 pm|
2:00pm – 2:45pm // The Long Arm of Regulation: A European Invasion
This session will address the status of global regulation on cyber threats and reporting, including major developments in Europe such as the GDPR and its Transatlantic Privacy Shield arrangement. This session will discuss the implications for corporations and insurers.
2:45pm – 3:15pm // Claims: What’s the smartest way to handle privacy class actions?
Using the Spokeo ruling as a launch-point, this session will debate the ruling and ask how best to settle a privacy class action.
2:00pm – 2:45pm // Systemic Risk
Silent exposures – what are they? How can they be quantified? Is there a need for a government backstop?
2:45pm – 3:15pm // Cyber Modeling: Lessons from Outside the Industry
There are many initiatives in the cyber marketplace for modeling cyber risk, but do cyber exposures demand a different perspective? This session will bring speakers from outside the insurance industry to share their experiences in other sectors. Speakers will share their views on how to quantify, analyze and mitigate cyber risk in a business and within an underwriting portfolio.
2:00pm – 2:45pm // Infosec and Insurance: Friends or Foes?
This session will look at two complementary, but potentially disruptive sectors: insurance and information security. What moves are afoot for insurers to develop and adopt infosec technology for underwriting purposes? And how are vendors encroaching on traditional insurance territory, by forming MGA’s etc? Panelists will look at the forces at play, how vendors are selected, how their effectiveness is measured and how budgets are directed.
Attendees will learn:
2:45pm – 3:15pm // The Future State of Cybersecurity
Crystal-ball gazing with academics etc on where the Internet and connectivity could end up, given the current cyber security concerns…Based on a seminal piece of recent research.
