Join me for the ABA Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee’s 2012 Annual CLE Seminar in Tucson, Arizona!

You know that insurance touches every aspect of litigation, not to mention its importance in the context of corporate transactions, right?  In today’s economic climate, the value of insurance is critical.  As an attorney, you want to stay informed about the latest trends in insurance coverage law, right?  You’re probably also looking for some CLE credit as well.  Do you want to go some place warm this winter?  Maybe Arizona?

My panel will be the greatest panel ever,* discussing insurance coverage for cyberrisks, including data breaches, denial-of-service attacks, and other cybersecurity events:

Saturday, March 3, 2012

Insurance Coverage for Data Breaches, Denial-of-Service Attacks, and Cybersecurity Events, and the Tidal Wave of Class Action Lawsuits Following Data Breach Disclosures.
There has been a recent tidal wave of data breaches, network interruptions, and cyberattacks, resulting in countless class actions. This program will explore how insurance coverage may help fund the costs to defend these lawsuits. Would your insurance policies cover those events? What coverages are available in the marketplace?
