On May 20, 2015, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar entitled “Webinar: Boardroom Implications Regarding Cybersecurity & Cyber Liability Insurance”.
Cyber security has risen to the top of the list of risks faced by companies and organizations of all sizes in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. No one is immune and protecting against cyber security risks has taken a critical place as one of the board’s most crucial responsibilities. Without board oversight and a corresponding risk management protocol, organizations could face disruptive or catastrophic losses that threaten their very existence. This webinar shed the light on this situation and reviewed suggestions for risk management including a review of Cyber Liability Insurance.
