Educational Sessions
03/04/16 8:30am to 9:30am
Network Security & Privacy Landscape (1 hour CE Credit)

Cyber exposures are one of the top risk concerns for companies.  A recent survey of insureds by AIG found that 86% rated cyber risk as their top concern.  Hackers are constantly developing new tools and tricks to breach corporate security.  At the same time business trends such as increased use of cloud computing and BYOD programs, while popular with businesses for obvious financial reasons, are leaving more corporate data exposed than ever before.  

In this session we will discuss the following:

• The evolution of insurance coverage for network security breaches 
• Emerging cyber-threats due to social media and cloud computing 
• Government and industry responses to cyber-risks 
• Costs associated with data breaches 
• How corporations can mitigate cyber-risks 
• Insurance products for cyber-exposures

Earthquakes! (1 hour CE Credit)

As the 2014 Magnitude 6.0 earthquake south of Napa reminded us, California is one of the most seismically active states in the US. Wehave several large metropolitan areas in proximity to active faults capable of generating massive earthquakes. As a result, it is important for insurance adjusters and brokers in California to be familiar with the typical types of damages caused by earthquakes. The aim of this continuing education course is to provide adjusters, brokers, and other insurance personnel a better understanding of earthquake risks, and the effects of earthquakes on structures, people, and the environment.
