On March 1, 2023, the Biden administration announced its long-awaited National Cybersecurity Strategy. Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that the FBI, along with other nation's law enforcement agencies, covertly infiltrated Hive Network, a known ransomware group who targets hospitals and school systems among its victims. As a result, more than $130 million in ransom demands were thwarted. While on Capitol Hill, various legislative initiatives are being introduced and passed, including one related to medical device security. The purpose of this webinar is to explain ransomware and the latest attacks, delve into notable cybersecurity cases and federal laws, as well as peek into compliance and how cyber hygiene through managing cyber risk impacts cybersecurity insurance coverage.
Key topics to be discussed:
Insurance as part of risk mitigation
