Upcoming Insurance Seminar in Miami: Demystifying the cyber coverages

Computer source code programmer script developer.

The Cyber policy has a unique constellation including both first party loss and third party liability as well as breach response services (pre and post breach).

The Association of British Insurers recently revealed that over 99% of all cyber insurance claims submitted to carriers in the UK were paid, making the claims acceptance rate one of the highest across all commercial lines insurance. Nonetheless, the systemic and complex nature of the cyber risk combined with the large scope of the cyber policy makes it difficult for businesses and individuals to grasp the coverages properly.

How to know when/if the cyber policy is triggered or not and which coverages are activated? How to understand cyber insurance policies and make sure clients have the right cover in place?

This presentation will give you some background on the key concepts of the cyber world and insurance policies and “stress test” coverages while navigating through different scenarios and real cases.

Following Sylvie Verdier’s presentation, Tom Gummer, Kennedys’ Innovation Manager and regional lead for the Americas will provide an introduction to Kennedys’ client focussed approach to innovation, its technologies and their applicability to the Latin American market.
