Cyber, Management & Professional Liability Community
The purpose of the Cyber, Management & Professional Liability Community (CMPL) is to assist members in obtaining a higher awareness of issues and trends in the management & professional liability insurance marketplace with an emphasis on matters related to litigation management through a collaborative effort between insurance companies and brokerages, claims organizations and service providers. To strengthen the industry resources available for management & professional liability claims and litigation professionals, CLM has transitioned executive oversight of the new CMPL Community to the CMPL Advisory Board. This board comprised of industry leaders will guide the development of extensive professional liability resources. Both Fellows and Members are eligible to join.
If you are a CLM Fellow (industry professional) interested in participating in the below ADR/Cyber webinar on October 7th, please reach out to Milan Chambers at Chambers@theinstitutes.org for more information:
Mediating Data Breach, Ransomware, Cyber & Privacy Lawsuits
So now that a data breach has been contained, a ransom paid, insurance claims submitted, and lawsuits pending – what’s next? Mediation. Money to be recovered by the insurer, person or entity who incurred the expense of recovering from a data breach and/or paying a ransom - subrogating against the allegedly negligent entities that allowed the threat actors into the company’s network. Privacy lawsuits by consumers or state agencies waiting to be settled. “Silent cyber” insurance issues perhaps to be resolved. Join this panel for a practical discussion on resolving these ever-evolving types of losses and lawsuits vis-à-vis mediation.
