  Crimes Coverage and Social Engineering
The intersection of malicious actors and cyber risk manifest itself in the world of Cybercrime. This panel will explore the types of cybercrime (e.g. ransomware, business email compromise, and social engineering) that exists and how the market is responding to these increasing threats. This panel will also explore the dark web and how cybercriminals utilize it.

  Can You Manage Risk with Cyber Security Services?
Many professions require that the effectiveness of products and procedures be tested using empirical methods. Products and services protecting against IT security breach are not often subject to such high level scrutiny. This panel will cover the way in which the insurance community can find ways to judge the effectiveness of cyber security services, strategies, policies and operational controls in bolstering corporate IT defenses and apply those to inform the risks of individual clients and companies.

  Luncheon with Peiter "Mudge" Zatko, CITL
Peiter Zatko, known professionally as Mudge, is the Director of Cyber Independent Testing Lab (CITL) and is a respected network security expert who has been prominent in the security field for over 20 years. He published some of the first security advisories and research demonstrating early vulnerabilities in computer systems and was an early advocate for educating the public about computer security and safety. In 2010 he took an appointed position as a Department of Defense official within the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where he was responsible for redirecting the DoD’s cyber research efforts. After his tenure at DARPA he was corporate VP of engineering at Motorola, and then the Deputy Director of Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, before stepping down to be the Director of The Cyber ITL.
1:15 pm - 2:15 pm
  Underwriting Strategies for Cyber Insurance
The demand for insurance which covers cyber related issues continues to grow, as do the risks. This panel will discuss how to underwrite cyber insurance specifically looking at controls, applications, tools and other strategies currently being used.

2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
  Securing Society’s Lifeline: Insurance as Part of the Critical Infrastructure
The insurance sector is an important part of the strategy for the nation’s critical infrastructure. As the government develops strategies for enhancing cyber security, it must also address the market forces that provide risk management strategies. The panel will look at these risk management strategies and the complex technical and business process issues which they must address.

  Expanding World of Cyber Claims

  The Internet and Government Regulators
The traditional role of the government is to safeguard citizens and provide an environment for innovation. With the rise of “connected” commodities such as cars and medical devices as well as the need for protection of data and privacy issues, the government is playing a new role in regulation. The panel will review how risk management and insurance is addressing the rising role of government regulation in the cyber space.

  Security as an Afterthought: The Internet of Things
The number of devices attached to the internet is exploding at rates that are unprecedented.
