ATMs are under attack! Bank's ATMs are a direct target and criminals have been creative and destructive in attempting their physical removal.  Bank's security countermeasures have helped with various techniques such as the Kangaroo coil, cross bars, ink systems and smartwater. With the recent uptick on ATM thefts, this session will discuss many methods of enhancements that should be considered to mitigate loss.

Your Journey To Resilience – Building A Stronger Organization 
Solving For Tomorrow's Risks, Today

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other recent events have proven that some organizations are more resilient than others. But what makes these organizations different, and what steps should you and other business leaders take as a result? Now, more than ever, organizations across all industries must better identify, understand, and plan for the impacts of emerging risks: both on current operations and future business imperatives. This session analyzes the impact and interrelation of emerging risks across an organization's complete value chain. It provides increased visibility into exposures and identifies gaps in preparedness versus perception of preparedness.

Learning Lab: What Really Happens When You Negotiate with a Hacker: An Insider's View

In this webinar we will explore the mysterious world of ransomware extortion negotiations. You will hear directly from a professional ransomware extortion negotiator and dive into the multiple issues an organization may need to navigate in the facilitation of extortion payments. How do you get immediate access to bitcoin? Do hackers negotiate, and by how much? Do they return your data if you pay? How long does it take to get your data back and recover? Do they carry out their threats to destroy or publicize your sensitive data if you don't pay? What role does law enforcement play? What Federal laws need to be complied with? How does cyber insurance play a part in all of this? 

3:00 PM - 3:45 PM

Learning Lab: Biometrics: No Breach Needed for Liability or Insurance Coverage

Over the past year a number of courts have addressed the question of insurance coverage for alleged violations of biometric statutes.  The insurance coverage decisions are mostly, though not universally, welcome news for businesses that have faced increasing numbers of lawsuits claiming improper collection, use or disclosures regarding biometric information.  No data breach need have taken place for such claims to be made.  As biometric data continues to be used at increasing rates, such claims are expected to increase.  Understanding some of the key provisions in insurance policies can be valuable.

Learning Lab: Blurred Lines: Cyber Risk & Fiduciary Liability

Cyber risk is universal. It transcends company size, geography and industry vertical. Cyber risk has been blurring the lines of traditional insurance products for years now. The risk has pushed its way into general liability policies, property policies, crime policies etc. Now we see it appearing in one of the sleepiest executive liability products, Fiduciary Liability Insurance. Cybercriminals are turning their sights on retirement plan assets: money and data. Will a traditional Fiduciary Liability Insurance policy adequately protect against this emerging, elusive and potentially catastrophic risk.
