The Cyber Risk Conference agenda of 2 full days will cover these topics:

They will focus on giving you practical strategies and tactics you can use to make certain your organization is (or your clients are) properly insured against cyber, privacy, and technology risks and well positioned to respond to any incidents that occur.

IRMI president Jack P. Gibson said, "Every business, governmental entity, or nonprofit institution in America is now extremely dependent on technology and the Internet. 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 June 16, 2011, and $799 thereafter. To learn more, please visit, or call (800) 827–4242.
