Insurers have long been a critical component of our country's financial services industry. And like other sectors of the industry, insurers recently have become increasingly dependent on technology and electronic data, including highly sensitive business and consumer data. For obvious reasons, insurers are at increased risk of cyber-attacks, data breach, and other cyber mishaps. Given the seriousness of these risks to the US economy and individual consumers, regulators and law makers — beginning with the New York State Department of Financial Services — are now zeroing in on the insurance industry's cyber security practices and procedures. Join Judy Selby and Heather McArn, partners at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP on January 28, 2020 at 2:00 pm Eastern as they discuss the current state of cyber laws and regulations impacting the insurance sector and provide practical advice on achieving compliance and mitigating cyber risks.

In the wake of high-profile investigations of certain institutions into the alleged concealment of child sex abuse or other abusive conduct, various states have passed or proposed passage of so-called "reviver statutes", which establish a "look back window" in which lawsuits can be filed that would otherwise be barred by a statute of limitations. Recently, "reviver statutes" have become a favored method for permitting victims of sexual abuse to assert claims based upon abuse that occurred many years ago against bad actors or the organizations that allegedly harbored, employed or supervised them. This session will discuss reviver statute developments, the claims and litigation activity in various states that have opened “look back” windows, and the potential insurance exposures that arise from legislation of this kind.
