Insurance Bootcamp


Cyber Liability Insurance – Taking the sting out of information security breaches

Our esteemed panel of presenters will discuss examples of underinsured clients and give information on how to safeguard yourself and your clients from common mistakes that allow us to be hacked and leave us vulnerable. For example, did you know that you can attract liability claims through your online activities and email comments?

We investigate what can be done to mitigate the risks and we unravel the implications of the POPI Act, which was signed into law last year and awaits implementation. We also assess the Electronic Communications Act and pose questions as to whether our industry is ready for this law that has had serious ramifications in overseas jurisdiction already.

The implications of technology and procedures within our industry will also be addressed.
