Cyber: Critical Uncertainties in a Less Than Certain World

Legalign Global

Date: November 11, 2020
Location: Virtual

Anjali Das (Partner-Chicago) and Ian Stewart (Partner-Los Angeles) will participate in a four-part Legalign Global webinar on November 11, 2020. Cyber is an expansive and sometimes amorphous risk, where policyholder risk may not be matched by insurance market intentions and capacity. In “Cyber: Critical Uncertainties in a Less Than Certain World” panelists will discuss critical uncertainties when it comes to policyholder and insurer cyber risk in four sections, each followed by a Q&A session.

  • War or No War? Is cyber war a realistic risk for the average policyholder, and if so, is there insurance market fit to cover it? Anjali Das, Franz König (BLD)
  • The Utility of Utilities. Cyber policies often exclude systemic losses caused by utility outages, however it is clear that some IT service providers are becoming so important that they might be described as utilities themselves. Is there a systemic exposure, and are we seeing examples already? Ian Stewart
  • Supply Chain Risk Can Cause Blow-Out Losses. Aside from the mega-tech companies, there is a systemic exposure caused by less well known tech providers in the supply chain. Do policyholders have a strong grasp of their supply chain, and if not, what hope is there for insurers to model and avoid systemic blow outs? Anjali Das, Kieran Doyle (W&K)
  • Privacy Risk, the Sleeping Giant. Privacy risk goes well beyond security breaches, especially when it comes to litigation. What privacy litigation trends are emerging, and should policyholders and insurers be worried? Anjali Das, Karen Zimmer / Brianne Kingston (AHB), Kieran Doyle (W&K)
