Course Description

This program was recorded on February 24, 2021

Businesses often rely on vendors for services such as online marketing, administrative functions, inventory management, credit card processing, and distribution controls. As the use of cloud computing, social media, "Bring Your Own Device" and remote work policies, big data, and state-sponsored espionage increases, the risks that vendors pose to companies has become much more evident. During this program, panelists examine how cyber risk and information protection has become a leading issue for organizations of all sizes. The discussion will also touch on the reality that hackers alone are not the only threat to companies. Panelists will examine how businesses need to consider cybersecurity insurance as a supplemental risk mitigation plan, for first party damages and and third-party claims. Panelists also review how best to utilize contingency planning to reduce their exposure to cyber risks.

This program is brought to you by the Global Cyber Institute and Thomson Reuters. It is presented by Daniel Garrie of Law & Forensics, Brian Levine of Ernst & Young, and Michael Sherman of Stubbs Alderton & Markiles LLP.
