Video clip about insurance coverage for data breaches, from the NetDiligence® Cyber Risk & Privacy Liability Forum.

HB Litigation Conferences and NetDiligence hosted the Cyber Risk and Privacy Liability Forum in Philadelphia on June 7 and 8, 2010.  During the conference, I was on a panel discussing insurance coverage for data breaches.  One of the topics that I covered was whether a Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance policy provides coverage for data breaches.  I argued that it does, and explained why. Here’s a short video clip that my friend Tom Hagy created in which I discuss why there is insurance coverage for data breaches and cybersecurity events.

  • Scott, thanks for sharing this information ref. to the data breach coverage.
    I represent 2 companies, Kroll America & Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. as a Sales Associate.
    They have a great Identity Theft Restoration/Legal Service Plan that helps people with data breaches and restoring their stolen Identities. We have a nework of attorneys across the various jurisdictions that address the laws of the states where the crime accurs.
    I’d be glad to discuss the details of our Plans including how we assist in the education of company employees ref. to the Red Flag Rules & Regulations.
    Make it a great day!
