eNewsChannels: CFO Risk Management Summit

NEWS: Cyber threats are one of the most significant risks businesses and individuals face today, says EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants. High profile breaches in the past few years have highlighted the substantial impact and significant costs associated with these attacks. And the breaches we hear about are just the tip of the iceberg, since information about an attack may not be revealed to the public if no personal data is stolen.

Becoming more informed about cyber risks is an important first step in arming yourself and your business. That’s the focus of an address by EPIC’s Senior Vice President of Enterprise Risk Management and Principal, Dan Houston, at the CFO Risk Management Summit in Boston on September 11.

Mr. Houston’s presentation, “Cyber, Technology, Media and Privacy Risk Management and Insurance” will provide insights into how you can better protect your business from cyber, technology, media, and privacy risks; methods of attack; relevant federal and state laws; the FBI’s role in cybercrime; how to protect your organization from these risks; and what to do if a data breach happens to you.

What: Presentation on “Cyber, Technology, Media and Privacy Risk Management and Insurance.”

When: Friday, September 11, 2015 – 2 p.m.

Who: Daniel W. Houston, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Risk Management and Principal, EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants.
