Speaker : Tom Finan, Senior Cybersecurity Strategist and Counsel at US Department of Homeland Security

The risks associated with cybersecurity range from operational to technical and even includes managerial elements. How each organization justifies its investment in security program management is generally tied back to a total cost of ownership (TCO) evaluation. The insurance industry is now actively promoting cybersecurity and data breach insurance to transfer the risk from organizations to the carrier. With this advancement comes challenges. Each policy is written differently. How well are you prepared? DHS is the premier agency taking the lead on this issue as it directly impacts critical infrastructure risk decision making practices. Tom Finan remains actively engaged with commercial and government stakeholders to assess opportunities for improvement in this industry.

Takeaways: We envision each attendee will have a greater understanding of the insurance landscape, how DHS is involved and what they have done to date as well as what is potentially on the horizon your businesses should be aware of with respect to cybersecurity underwriting.
