Mind the Gaps: The Impact of Emerging Threats on Cyber Insurance

Thursday, December 7, 12 to 1 p.m. EST

This program contains 1 Professionalism Hour.  

Cybersecurity insurance is a nascent product reacting to a fast-evolving threat landscape. Every business in every sector is vulnerable to data breach, ransomware, and other cyber attacks. New cyber threats are on the horizon and most of today’s coverage options are inadequate to cover them. 

Please join Howard Smith for an informative lunchtime webinar on December 7 where he will discuss what cyber insurance does and does not cover. Howard will also shed light on emerging cyber threats impacting industrial control systems and industrial IoT (internet of things) and the gaps in coverage these threats pose.

Featured Speaker: Howard Smith, Cyber Insurance Counsel

Howard Smith was called to the Ontario Bar in 1994 and practices cyber insurance law, providing counsel to insurers, brokers, and corporate risk managers. For many years, Howard provided legal counsel to commercial insurers’ underwriting and claims departments, exposing him to a broad range of commercial insurance products.

Outside of law, Howard ran the business development department of a Canadian venture capital firm that invests in international cybersecurity start-ups. In 2022, he founded a business development agency that represents cybersecurity and computer-vision technologies. 

Moderated by: Jennifer R. Davidson, Partner, Deeth Williams Wall LLP
