DALLAS—A diverse group of thought leaders—100 risk managers, agents, brokers, underwriters, adjusters, and attorneys—convened in San Francisco July 20–21 to share knowledge about managing and insuring technology, privacy, and cyber risks at the first IRMI Cyber & Privacy Risk Conference.

International Risk Management Institute, Inc. (IRMI), hosted the Conference to address the complex exposures arising from the use of technology in business. Nationally known insurance brokerage, underwriting, and legal experts from firms such as Aon, Beazley, Chartis, Lockton, Marsh, and Zurich offered practical strategies to help attendees make certain their stakeholders are properly insured and well positioned to respond to any incidents that occur.

“This program was an eye-opening revelation of just how pervasive and undermanaged cyber risks are,” said IRMI president and CEO Jack P. Gibson. “Most businesspeople don’t realize just how little of the cyber risk their businesses face is covered by traditional insurance, and, as a result, they aren’t buying the special products now available to cover them. The risk managers, agents, and brokers who attended the Conference went home with the knowledge they needed to identify cyber risks and put a cyber liability insurance program in place.”
