Who Should Participate

Members of the Smaller Insurance Company Section


Addressing cybersecurity is a crucial issue for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) at any company. Actuaries need to have knowledge of this because it is a solvency issue: poor management of cybersecurity risk can put a company out of business due to high expenses related to responding to an attack or by severely damaging a company's reputation. In this first Smaller Insurance Company Section sponsored virtual town hall meeting, we will discuss best practice management of cybersecurity from a small company perspective. Managing cybersecurity can be very expensive: developing the needed expertise internally is often impractical, and outsourcing, while common, is also costly.

This town hall will provide a venue to learn and participate in a live discussion with your peers. Presenters will spend the first 15 minutes providing some brief introductory information. During the remaining 45 minutes, presenters will take questions from the audience and lead a discussion with audience participation.

During this interactive event, speakers may know the answer to the question, or may turn to others in the audience to provide the answer. You will be able to ask questions and/or contribute to the discussion via the phone and computer. 

How the live virtual town hall meeting works:

You do not need any special equipment. On Sept.26, 2017, before 2:00 p.m. ET you will be sent detailed instructions via email including the phone number and Web address to access the virtual town hall meeting. You will be able to ask questions and/or contribute to the discussion via the phone and computer.
