Cyber Insurance Subcommittee

At the 2020 Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting, the Cyber Insurance Subcommittee had interesting discussions concerning cyber insurance topics, including cyber insurance coverages and the practical issues that arise in obtaining coverage, how policy wording differences can affect coverage, and recent case law on coverage for cyber claims under standard lines and cyber insurance policies. These were to be addressed by a panel at the Spring Business Law Section meeting in Boston, and we are exploring alternatives for sharing this information.

The Subcommittee also discussed other projects, including developing articles to assist companies in understanding cyber insurance, a glossary of cyber insurance and cyber risk terms and a webinar. Please let us know if you are interested in working on any of these projects.  We look forward to seeing Subcommittee members and newcomers at our next telephonic meeting on Thursday, March 26, at 10:00 a.m. ET.
