  1. You are at risk.
Existing insurance policies do not account for web-based and other technology related liabilities. McAfee Security won't ensure you against a massive claim in case of a breach.
  1. The cost of a breach is higher than you think.
A 2012 data breach insurance claims study done by Net Diligence found that the average cost of legal defense for a data breach was $582,000, and the average cost of a settlement was more than $2 million.

  1. What could possibly go wrong?
A few things ... like virus attacks, hacks, physical damage or interruption to servers, rogue laptops, natural disasters and other systems failures.
  1. Know the ways you're at risk.
New economy, new exposures. The risks differ from business to business but include things like data theft, intellectual property liability claims, employee misconduct and many other things.

  1. Know how to mitigate your risk.
You need a data security policy, data encryption and employee training - but you also need to transfer liability to a third-party underwriter. That means an insurance policy crafted to cover all your specific cyber liabilities.

And, just to lighten things up a bit:
Find out who the next president will be.
The model used by Frank Mackaman of The Dirksen Center has correctly predicted the popular vote outcome of every presidential election since 1860. Come hear Frank Mackaman's prediction. 

10-10:15 a.m.: Opening statements from Bill Shock, Executive Vice President, Unland Companies
10:15-11:45 a.m.: Warren Poetzing, Professional Lines Underwriter at USLI, and Bill Martin, President/Professional Underwriter of Gateway Underwriting Agency, will discuss "Painting the Risk," going over the various cyber risks as they relate to those involved in education, banking, retail, manufacturing and other organizations, and the cyber insurance solutions that allow businesses to transfer their risks.
11:45-12:45 p.m.: Frank Mackaman of The Dirksen Congressional Center will present "The 2016 Election" and share how the model he uses to make his predictions works. Lunch and refreshments sponsored by Gateway Underwriting Agency and CIAN.
12:45-1:45 p.m.: Erik English of CIAN will introduce Cody Kretsinger, a professional hacker from CIAN. Cody will cover the basics of what happens during a network penetration test. He will also be available for a short question and answer session. A penetration test is designed to illustrate an organization's vulnerabilities and how to apply patches and fixes to white, red and black security breach mechanisms.
1:45-2:15 p.m.: Bill Shock of The Unland Companies will make some final remarks, introduce ID Restoration Pro, and distribute some "happy to see you" gifts.
