IRMI Conference To Address Cyber and Privacy Risk and Insurance

Dallas, TX, February 5, 2013—Registration is now open for the IRMI Cyber & Privacy Risk Conference, to be held May 7–8, 2013, in Crystal City, Arlington, VA.

The IRMI Cyber & Privacy Risk Conference is designed for risk managers, agents, brokers, underwriters, adjusters, attorneys, and others who must understand, mitigate, or insure the complex exposures arising from the use of technology in any organization. The Conference agenda will cover these topics:

  • Hot claims and litigation issues
  • Regulatory developments and enforcement
  • Cyber risk assessment
  • Incident response planning
  • Selling the need to buy cyber coverage to upper management
  • Vendor management
  • Social media
  • Underwriter perspectives
  • Biggest coverage issues
  • Reputation risk
  • Integrating risk management elements with insurance coverage
  • Impact of cloud computing on cyber coverage
  • Cybercrime

Each of the sessions will be presented by a nationally known insurance brokerage, underwriting, legal, or cybersecurity expert who has spent years working in this specialized field. They will focus on providing practical strategies and tactics to make certain an organization (or its clients) are properly insured against cyber, privacy, and technology risks and well positioned to respond to any incidents that occur.

IRMI President & CEO Jack P. Gibson said, "Most businesses are now so dependent on the Internet that they cannot function without it, and all businesses hold sensitive data of others that will lead to liability if breached. The risks of technology errors and omissions, data breaches, and website or Internet service disruptions are so pervasive and extreme that they threaten the very survival of many organizations. Unfortunately, many companies are not properly insured against the risks and wholly unprepared to respond to incidents. This Conference will help risk professionals properly manage and insure these risks."

The registration fee is $699 before April 1, 2013, and $799 thereafter. Corporate or governmental risk managers and insurance buyers receive a 50 percent discount ($349 before April 1). Holders of the Management Liability Insurance Specialist (MLIS®) certification receive a 15 percent discount ($594 before April 1).
