"This morning's conference was great!  It was a wide range of participants on the panels and that was a great way to hear a wide view of options and ideas from the panelists!  Kevin Hancock gets my vote for most open, honest and helpful answers to questions. He was outstanding and his thoughts today were very heartfelt and honest.  Take away the layers of "facade" and discuss the truth of what it's like and how you face the issuers."

With an alarming uptick in data breaches and ransomware, an increasing number of businesses have opted to add Cyber Risk Insurance to protect themselves from catastrophic loss. As the threat landscape continues to expand, many insurance companies are scrutinizing payouts by creating more claim exceptions and exclusions and banks are seeing fraud of all types that are impacting all Maine businesses.

We’ll discuss Cyber Security threats and events in the headlines—Different reasons that can drive the need for an assessment—General concerns, industry specific policy requirements, cyber insurance and banking guidelines—The phases that make up a security assessment—What to expect during the phases —The tools used to complete the assessment—What a timeline looks like—Information from reports that are generated. And we’ll here from a family-owned business about their experiences on this topic.
