Cyber Snare? The Insurability of Regulatory Fines
As cyber and privacy regulations proliferate, enterprises face significant compliance risks. Mistakes can be costly; regulators may be empowered to level staggering fines for non-compliance and even shut down information processing until compliance is achieved. Some laws also provide a private right of action for consumer lawsuits. In this panel, we will provide an overview of the regulatory landscape and discuss the different approaches taken by cyber insurers offering regulatory coverage, highlighting significant differences in the coverages provided under various cyber policies, and the insurability of regulatory fines and penalties under a variety of applicable U.S. and foreign laws.
