Cyber and data breaches are currently a fiercely discussed and covered issue in the news. So, what can you do to make sure you’re prepared against an organisation breach?

Join us for this ideas exchange event that will delve into the following discussion points:

  • Which policies answer in the event of an attack? (differing types of cyber insurance)
  • In the event of a cyber or data breach, what can and cannot be claimed (generally)
  • What are the must have elements, vs the ‘nice to have’ elements of a cyber policy?
  • Typical inclusions and exclusions
  • Any industry specific inclusions and exclusions?
  • Any general advice on cyber tips and tricks that support good cyber and data management from an insurance perspective?
  • Cost of claims? (what is claimable vs. what is not claimable)
