Technology and information security issues have moved to the forefront when it comes to the known risks faced by businesses. With ever-increasing legislation at the state, federal, and international levels – all of which will directly impact the operations of mutual insurance companies, their vendors. and their commercial insureds – it is more important than ever for insurers to be aware of both the increased technical and legal risks as well as the potential opportunities that these ever-expanding sets of cyber- and data-security laws bring. We will discuss the role that state laws have played in filling the vacuum left by a glaring lack of federal action.
