Panelists will share real-life examples of claims involving third-party administrators handling group health, workers compensation and other lines of self-insured business. Panelists will dissect the anatomy of a claim starting from the actual breach to ultimate closure, addressing breach response, regulatory requirements, dependent systems and business interruption risks, social engineering and reputational concerns. This session also will cover HIPPA cyber security requirements, multiple jurisdiction responsibilities and costs stemming from responding to cyber breaches.”

Mike Smith had this to say, “Cyber liability has exploded in recent years as more and more losses are incurred by big name companies. I’m looking forward to speaking this year at the annual SIIA conference and educating the attendees about cyber liability and the risks to be cautious of.”
