Cyber coverage and cybersecurity solutions will be the focus of the inaugural NetDiligence Cyber Risk Summit Bermuda, at the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club next month.
The two-day event has a cocktail reception on March 13, with the following day featuring speakers and discussions on cyber coverage and cybersecurity solutions. It will bring together more than 50 speakers, and feature sessions looking at topics ranging from the evolution of cyber reinsurance, and the state of preparedness for cyber catastrophe, to silent cyber, business interruption losses, and the menace of ransomware. There will be breakout sessions, a fireside chat, and a keynote speech from Laura Galante, who is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.
