In the current risk landscape, it is not a matter of if your business or client will experience a cybersecurity incident, but when. A cybersecurity event is not only a concern for the business bottom line but can also impact directors and officers as new regulations and shareholder and consumer suits threaten the C-suite. Indeed, regulatory investigations, penalties, and consumer lawsuits have become the norm.
In this program, Andrea DeField of Hunton Andrews Kurth, LLP’s insurance coverage and litigation, will provide an overview of the cyber threat landscape and an update on the recent state, federal, and foreign regulations concerning cybersecurity protocols and how these regulations impact you or your client’s potential liability. The speakers will provide a primer on how a well-crafted cyber insurance and directors & officers insurance program can help manage cyber risk and help protect directors and officers, and the company, from cyber liabilities. Finally, the course will address common gaps in cyber insurance coverage and how to fill these gaps in order to avoid a coverage denial.
Andrea has dedicated her career to helping clients manage risk and maximize insurance recovery. As part of her counseling practice, Andrea adds value to business deals by advising clients on contractual risk transfer through indemnity, additional insured, and required insurance provisions in contracts. She also helps clients identify and mitigate risk before a loss occurs by conducting insurance due diligence for mergers and acquisitions and by conducting audits of clients’ insurance programs to identify gaps in coverage before renewal.
When a loss has occurred or a claim has been made, Andrea helps clients maximize insurance recovery by advising them through the claims process. When insurers fail to pay amounts due, Andrea represents clients in litigation or alternative dispute resolution of coverage disputes. She has handled and tried cases in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout the country and is admitted to practice in Florida, as well as certain federal district and appellate courts.
Andrea is also a prolific author and lecturer on insurance and risk management topics including directors and officers (D&O), private equity, cyber, food recall, liability, pollution, windstorm, and other insurance issues. She is active in the American Bar Association and currently serves on the ABA’s Standing Committee on Disaster Response and Preparedness and the ABA Cybersecurity Task Force.
