Given the state of high-profile data breaches over the last 12 months, MAG members might be surprised to learn that cyber insurance is widely available, and that the scope of coverage continues to expand.  Attendees will learn about the state of the cyber insurance market, what is and is not covered, and how to build an effective cyber insurance program.
