Part 1:  
Part 1 helps to define what cyber liability is and is not. Our world is changing and we as agents & brokers need to help our clients understand the need to protect their businesses as technology impacts exposures in order to do this, we need to understand the exposure and coverage.
A business used to feel fully protected when they purchased Property, General Liability, Auto and Workers Compensation. A variety of emerging issues now require we pay special attention to exposures not adequately covered by the Business Owners or Package Policies. Topics that will be discussed include:

• Demystifying Cyber and Privacy Loss Exposures and Insurance Coverage
• Information Security Liability Exposures
• Privacy Liability Exposures
• First-Party Property Loss Exposures
• Emerging Cyber and Privacy Exposures
• Cyber Space and Privacy Loss Control
• Underwriting Cyber and Privacy Insurance
