Cyber Insurance is Growing Up…CISOs, Are You Ready?

with John Loftus, Robert Parisi, Tracey Vispoli, and Phil Gardner

Not-Petya and other breaches have accelerated the adoption of cyber insurance by the Fortune 1000, yet CISOs are too often AWOL from this critical risk management purchase. The session’s goal is to change this. 

Phil will lead a lively discussion between the CISO attendees and executives from leading cyber insurance underwriting and brokerage firms. After reviewing the market’s current cyber insurance products, we'll focus on:

  • Why buy cyber insurance?  For risk transfer, risk mitigation or something else? 
  • Do cyber insurance policies really pay out when a breach occurs? 
  • How do you determine appropriate cyber insurance coverage limits?
  • How do you demystify complex policy language?
