Panel:
Cyber Threats and Basic Security: Planning for Protection and Insurance Issues
Nov. 2, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Everyone has heard about the data breaches at Home Depot and Target and even of health insurance and related information. As the “big players” have ramped up security, cyber thieves have set their sights on more vulnerable targets – small to mid-size businesses that deal with customers through the Internet. As religious institutions shift fund-raising strategy to the Internet, they are as vulnerable as any other entity soliciting monetary gifts online. This workshop covers the basics – from identifying and quantifying the threat, to understanding the implications, to building a cost-effective management plan, and finally to insurance for any losses.

Panelists:
Craig R. Blackman, Partner and Co-Chair, Insurance
Jana M. Landon, Counsel and Co-Chair, Data Breach Response and Cyber Insurance Teams
