The long months of working from home have caused an increase in the frequency of cyber attacks (up 45% since March 2020), highlighting the need for personal and corporate cybersecurity insurance options.  Our panel of experts will explain the different risks, as well as how claims departments can be proactive in mitigating risks in the current environment.  Key takeaways will include:
