 Presentation Slides and Sample Insurance Applications 

Our first Brunswick Peers & Beers! Almost 40 people registered for MTUG's December Peers & Beers at Nomad at the historic Fort Andross in Brunswick to for networking, learning, and refreshments, sponsored for the MTUG audience by Arctic Wolf 

Our Tech Spotlight presenters Peter Luciano and Dennis Tuttle of Cross Insurance discussed Cybersecurity Liability Requirements - the 3rd leg of the cybersecurity tripod. 

Tech Spotlight Presentation Description:

Presenter Dennis Tuttle, IS Architect at Cross Insurance, provides a brief overview of what perils cyber security risk insurance covers -- and what it doesn't. Trends indicate increasing threats from email through sophisticated phishing campaigns and ransomware attacks, including via third-party attackers using attack platforms, known as “Ransomware as a Service”, to monetize unauthorized network access.

Dennis then focuses on the insurance application process -- looking at various applications from 3 major insurance providers -- to highlight which controls insurance companies are looking for when they measure a customer’s residual cybersecurity risk. He will then briefly discuss how you may assess and remediate your company’s potential gaps using internal and external resources.

Co-Presenter Peter Luciano will be available to further address insurance and additional coverage topics and questions.
