The panel will address some of the potential liabilities utilities can be exposed to due to such incidents and how an evolving legal “standard of care” will require increased investment in cybersecurity prevention programs as well as cyber risk transfer and acceptance. The risk transfer process of procuring specialized insurance products can help to indemnify organizations from damages resulting from allegations of negligence or misconduct. The panel will further explain what cybersecurity insurance entails and the different types of policies available, including the extent of coverage each provides.
