Attendees of this session will gain a clear perspective of what benefits Cyber Insurance can provide to their existing Cyber Security Program. Today, Cyber Insurance is no longer a “nice to have” but is a “must have” for every company doing business in a digital world. But how much coverage do you need and what’s really involved in getting cyber insurance? People who attend this session will gain a clear perspective on what Cyber Insurance can and can’t provide and where traditional insurance policies fall short.
