NetDiligence® & HB Litigation Conferences Release Details of 2nd Annual Event
PHILADELPHIA, March 2, 2011 – NetDiligence®, a leading cyber risk assessment company supporting the cyber liability insurance industry, announced today the 2nd Annual NetDiligence® Cyber Risk & Privacy Liability Forum will be held June 9-10 at the Union League in Philadelphia.
NetDiligence has again partnered with HB Litigation Conferences (HB) to create and conduct the two-day program designed to help companies mitigate and protect themselves from data security/ privacy breaches.
“Cyber security mishaps are perhaps most frightening threats facing companies, individuals, governments and other organizations today,” said Tom Hagy, CEO of HB Litigation Conferences. “With everything from accidental leaks of non-public information that result in a privacy class action lawsuit, to the intentional harvesting of data posted on social networks, to data gleaned from flash cookies on personal or business computers, the risks are growing, global and often gigantic. That’s why we partner with NetDiligence to host this important event.”
“The inaugural event in 2010 received great reviews not only for its content and expert faculty, but for its rich networking opportunities,” said Mark Greisiger, president of NetDiligence. “We look forward to an even better event this year with a wider array of insurance industry partners.”
This year’s conference is chaired by: Richard Bortnick, Esq. of Cozen O’Connor; Oliver Brew, Senior Vice President of Technology – Media and Telecoms Underwriting of Hiscox USA; Toby Merrill, VP & National Privacy, Technology & Media Liability Product Manager of ACE Professional Risk; and Meredith Schnur, Professional Risk Group of Wells Fargo Insurance Services USA, Inc.
The program is designed for corporate risk managers, CFOs, insurers, information security technologists, lawyers and insurance brokers seeking to learn more about how companies may be found liable for a data breaches that may trigger class actions; what risk control measures, standards and safeguard practices are reasonable & prudent; where many companies are weak; how to assess e-risk and recognizing if a breach has occurred; investigating an incident; incident response plans; and the value of privacy risk insurance coverage.
