Cyber liability — proactive risk management in an evolving market focus

Presented by: Jon Paulsen, Sedgwick; Seth Cole, Alliant Insurance Services, Inc.

The cyber insurance coverage and underwriting market continue to change dramatically as California public agencies are increasingly targeted for cyber-attack. In addition to vulnerabilities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work and connectivity demands, other challenges continue to impede progress in the area of cyber security risk management – aging infrastructure, budgetary constraints, the Internet of Things (IoT), etc. Public agency risk managers need additional support and the ability to work proactively with their stakeholders. Our panel will discuss the current underwriting and coverage environment as well as support strategies in the areas of security, infrastructure enhancement, and underwriting compliance.
