Cyber insurance is a necessity for business owners. Cybercriminals are everywhere; they’re sophisticated and organized, have unlimited resources, and target businesses of every size searching for vulnerabilities. As part of our AAIS Webinar Series, AAIS participated in a virtual presentation on July 11, 2023, featuring AAIS Partner Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB), the leading engineering and technical risk insurer providing equipment breakdown and other specialty coverages, inspection services, and engineering consulting. Hosted by Stephanie Vasey, Product Manager of Commercial Lines and Inland Marine at AAIS, this free continuing education webinar led by Beth Ducker, Product Education Manager at HSB, and Mike Tischler, Client Engagement & Education Specialist at HSB, discussed the coverage elements of cyber insurance and ways to reduce the risk of data breaches and computer system attacks.
During the height of the COVID pandemic, Berkley Re Solutions’ Jeff Cron joined AAIS for a an AAIS Pulse session looking at ‘Cyber Crime: The Online Home Invasion.’ "We’re all online more, seeing content, and clicking links to different articles, videos, and other forms of media. While the actual risk hasn’t changed, volume has magnified, with more scams and more screen time.”
