CONCORD, Mass. - Dec. 7, 2016 - PRLog -- The Emerging & Frontier Markets Association, Cyber Insurance Institute, will

host a very special webinar: Negotiating Cyber Insurance, with a focus on worldwide best practices. The program will take place on March 1 at 11:00 AM EST and will last for 2 hours

Gary Brown, the conference organizer, notes that "Companies suffer an average of 17 malicious attacks and 12 sustained probes on a monthly basis. In fact there was a major attack from the Internet of Things during the week of November 6, 2016."

According to Gary Brown, " As data breach incidents and related cyber risks increase and gain publicity, and as government agencies become more actively involved in policing the corporate response, companies need to take a close look at the protections provided by cyber risk insurance policies."

The program will focus on the important terms and conditions of cyber policies that can have a significant impact on available coverage.
