A Holistic Approach to Cybersecurity Preparedness in The Banking Sector

The pandemic experience is forcing changes to the way business is conducted on a global scale. Biometric technology is not a new concept, but it is receiving a boost from the sudden need to conduct business remotely and with as little physical touch as possible.  Technological advances in biometrics, coupled with a post-COVID-19 world, could very well mean the end of the PINs and passwords. Banks are using biometrics to develop next-generation level identification controls that combat fraud, make transactions more secure, and enhance the overall customer experience. Using retinal scans, voice authentication and facial recognition may ultimately prove more cost efficient, reliable and convenient.  While all of this innovation is happening, comprehensive Biometric Information Privacy (BIP) regulations are sweeping the country and associated litigation is following in lock-step right behind.

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Your Journey To Resilience – Building A Stronger Organization 

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.

Blurred Lines: Cyber Risk and Fiduciary Liability Insurance 

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?

EPLI Coverage: Beyond Basics

Over the past few years a number of events have forced corporate policyholders to focus on EPLI coverage.  Following the rise of #MeToo movement and potential liability issues that it created for employers, the COVID pandemic raised different issues about workplace safety, mandatory employee requirements, shutting down workplaces and returning to work places.  Employer liability, as always, trails behind the decisions employers have to make when addressing complex employee situations. EPLI coverage can respond in a number of ways to the claims that can arise in these contexts.  Having the ability to make a clear argument for coverage can help bring an insurance company into the process of resolving claims before they become public or turn into lawsuits. This panel will discuss best practices for addressing insurance coverage issues in these contexts under EPLI policies.
