Data Breach: Still the Goliath

There are lots of shiny new threats out there, with the possibility to trip us up – but don’t forget that privacy and network security are still the main types of loss under cyber insurance policies. Using data from Advisen on cyber loss trends and recent event examples, the panel will explore the magnitude of a data breach event and ask how this has changed in the past year. Panelists will also ask if recent high-profile data breaches will result in increased demand for insurance.

The Cost to Reputation

Reputation is cited as a major concern for organizations when they suffer a data breach. How impactful is reputational damage to a business? How do you prove that you suffered a loss? This session will look at stock valuation, customer exodus and derivative lawsuits as a basis for establishing reputational harm. The panel will also touch on what insurance cover is available.
