The Rise of the Cyber Supervillain- 11:15a-11:45a

Cybercriminals have become savvier, better organized, and more dangerous. Whether through malware, ransomware, DDoS attacks, or sophisticated social engineering, they steal, exploit and disrupt seemingly with impunity. This session looks at state-of-the-art information security to see how it stacks up against the growing sophistication of cybercriminals. Who are the cybersecurity Avengers ready to take on an army of cyber supervillains?

  • Bala Larson, Northwest/Midwest Regional Manager, US Tech & Cyber, Cyber & Executive Risk, Beazley [Moderator]
  • Marc Bleicher, Managing Director, Arete Advisors
  • Joshua Dann, Practice Lead, Lodestone

Claims in Focus: Managing a Vendor Breach- 11:45a-12:15p

No matter how robust and sophisticated a company’s own cyber defenses may be, it still may be vulnerable to less secure vendors. This session will look at the practical considerations when dealing with a security incident involving a vendor with a focus on contractual considerations and insurance coverage issues.
