Upcoming webcast: Risk Assessment and Risk Transfer in a Digital Age

Core Security and Chubb (an insurance company that offers "CyberSecurity" insurance) are hosting a webcast titled "Risk Assessment and Risk Transfer in a Digital Age" on Tuesday, March 25th at 2 PM EST. If you're using a risk based security model, or you're interested in insurance as a risk transfer strategy, this might be an interesting webcast to listen in on. Their topic list includes why attacks are made, how to improve security, a comparison of assurance and false confidence, and how to transfer risks. That last topic is of particular interest, as Chubb's involvement should mean a good discussion of what options insurance can offer you when transferring risk.

I've started to see more organizations looking into cyber insurance, and the market appears to be maturing - in fact, the first webcast I've seen hosted by an insurance company. With cyber-theft insurance and other similar coverage has become a more frequently discussed topic in the past year, and I'll be interested to see how Chubb positions themselves in the market.
