Ransomware Advisory Group Roundtable

Because ransomware represents a costly business interruption and data breach threat to both insurers and their policyholders, NetDiligence created a Cyber Insurance Ransomware Advisory Group. The senior managers and subject matter experts who participate as members of the Cyber Insurance Ransomware Advisory Group freely contribute their time and resources to help us bring timely and useful ransomware information to the greater cyber community. Join us for this roundtable discussion and learn about the evolving ransomware landscape and attack vectors/methods from the world’s most prominent cyber forensics and data breach remediation firms.  Come away from this session with current sector intelligence to help develop effective policy coverage strategies and tactical policyholder due-diligence requirements in order to make cost-effective, ransomware-specific cyber insurance products available to the policyholders.
