  • The dramatically heightened regulatory scrutiny and the proliferation and expansion of data privacy and protection laws-EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).
  • Keeping up to date on the cutting-edge insurance available and best practices for maximizing coverage
  • Deciphering the current legal and regulatory frameworks that address critical cyber risk issues
  • Adopting best practices for maximizing insurance recovery after a cyber security incident

Ms. Sutton will be joined by Jeffrey Parker, VP – HR & Risk Management, Lansing Building Products, and Chris Keegan, Cyber and Technology National Practice Leader, Brown & Brown.
