Cyber Incidents and Coverage - What You Need to Know.  The session will provide an overview of the evolving environment regarding cyber incidents such as hacking and theft of confidential data, cyber extortion, cyber terrorism, and delay or denial of service attacks, including recent examples of these types of incidents.  There will also be a discussion of the particular risks associated with each type of incident, such as business interruption, danger of repeat occurrences, or lawsuits and potential liability for directors and officers. The session will then provide an overview of insurance coverage available for cyber incidents, with a focus on evolving cyber policies, including suggested approaches to obtaining appropriate cyber coverage, important policy terms, and exclusions and other policy provisions to watch out for.

Blindsided: How to Respond When a Vendor Gets Hacked.  It’s easy to forget that some vendors store a tremendous amount of sensitive company data. If you get notified that your vendor has been breached, naturally you’d be blindsided by the event, having to deal with lost staff time, organizational focus, or worse: sensitive customer data. Which would you rather be: prepared to handle the situation or floundering and worrying about what to do? This workshop will help risk managers have a game plan with how to incorporate a vendor incident management plan into the vendor management program. Specific topics include:

  • Issues to handle in vendor data breach incidents
  • Best practices for managing third-party risk in every department
  • Responses to each issue and documentation to create
  • Contingency plans in case the responses are ineffective
