AgentsOfAmerica.ORG features my post: “Insurance Coverage for Cyberattacks and Denial-of-Service Incidents”

If your business suffered losses from a cybersecurity incident, a denial-of-service attack, or some other computer-, network-, or internet-related event, would you know whether your insurance would cover the losses?  If your insurance company denied your claim, would you know whether the insurance company had done so properly?

Well, if you’d like some additional thoughts on these issues, check out my post at the AgentsOfAmerica.ORG website.  They posted my piece titled, “Insurance Coverage for Cyberattacks and Denial-of-Service Incidents” and also featured it in their newsletter.  In my post, I discuss insurance coverage for cyberattacks, cybersecurity events, denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and more.  I note a couple of recent cases finding in favor of insurance for these sorts of events under commercial general liability (CGL) insurance policies as well as new cyber insurance policies.

So head over to the AgentsOfAmerica.ORG site and check out my post to see more!

Join me at the First Party Claims Conference!

On October 19 and 20, 2010, I’m going to be presenting at the First Party Claims Conference in Warwick, Rhode Island.

What’s the First Party Claims Conference, you ask?  Well, the website describes the event as:

The 2010 FIRST PARTY CLAIMS CONFERENCE (FPCC) on October 18-20 in Warwick, Rhode Island is the insurance event that offers the maximum amount of education and CE credits for a minimal investment of time and money.

And who doesn’t like getting the “maximum amount of education” for the “minimal” amount of time and money? There will be 21 educational sessions and 39 presenters. The conference is open to everyone in the insurance claims community: accountants, adjusters, agents, attorneys, brokers, consultants, engineers, vendors/suppliers and others.

The title of the presentation that I will be making with Darrell Hamer is:

Contingent Business Interruption Insurance – Will You Be Covered When Bad Things Happen To Other People? Scott Godes, Esq., [formerly] of Dickstein Shapiro LLP and Darrell Hamer of Property Claim Advisory Services Corporation

You do remember what contingent business interruption insurance is, don’t you?  What’s that, you need a refresher?  Well, click here and read all about it!  Then register for the conference.  Our panel is going to be great.  We’re going to give tips and details based on first hand, real world experience in pursuing coverage for contingent business interruption claims.
