Governo Law Firm Partners to Address Insurers' Data Security and Cyber Liability Risks


Governo Law Firm Partners David A. Goldman and Nancy Kelly have been invited to speak at the 2013 Environmental & Emerging Claim Manager Association (EECMA) Conference on May 1 to May 3, 2013 in Captiva Island, Florida. In their presentation, entitled "Cyber Risks: A New Insurance Frontier," Mr. Goldman and Ms. Kelly will discuss insurers':

  • risk of cyber-attacks;
  • liability due to inadequate data security; and
  • regulatory penalties for non-compliance.

They will also discuss the applicable state, federal, and international data privacy laws, and suggest specific steps that insurers should take to reduce their potential liability. Governo Law Firm's Data Privacy and Cyber Liability practice group recently published a related article in Claims Magazine entitled "Staying Compliant Amid Escalating Cyber Threats." Please contact David Goldman ([email protected]) or Nancy Kelly ([email protected]) at 617.737.9045 if you would like additional information.
