The cyber risks facing businesses today

Tuesday, 08 September 2020
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
    • Laura Potts, Development Underwriter, Hiscox UK

Cyber risks continue to dominate the market and this is a subject that is, perhaps, even more relevant with so many people working from home at the moment. We are therefore delighted that Laura Potts, Development Underwriter at Hiscox UK, will be running a webinar for us on Tuesday 8 September 2020.

Taking place online, this free one hour webinar replaces the event we had to postpone earlier in the year. It will see Laura looking at how cyber insurance has evolved over time, the risks facing businesses today, what a cyber attack looks like in the real world and how a typical cyber policy can protect businesses in the event of a loss.
