As easy, convenient and efficient as today's web and network technology has made our business lives, our dependence on it puts us at risk in ways that never existed before.

Any organization that relies on computer technology - and few in the world do not - is likely to be unprotected by traditional insurance coverage.

Effectively managing and protecting a company against the expanding universe of cyber risks requires a hard look at several issues.

Join us in a lively discussion on May 14, 2015 where we focus on the discussion of cyber risk surrounding these four key themes:

1) Evolving threat environment and exposures;
2) regulatory environment impact on data breach cost;
3) Federal and State level notice variations, and;
4)mitigation strategies - insurance, risk assessment and breach response plan.
