Cybersecurity and Cyber Insurance Essentials for Retailers in the Ransomware Era
Ransomware continues to pummel organizations, with the retail sector now being the most-targeted vertical. So it's no surprise retailers are increasingly embracing practices and approaches to help them better lock down networks and payment systems, and to minimize the impact of a successful attack.

Cyber insurance is also part of many retailers' risk-mitigation strategy. But the ongoing success of ransomware as a criminal business model has led to a surge in premiums and insurers demanding more robust defenses from prospective policyholders.

Accordingly, how can retail CISOs ensure they employ the right defenses? What "must have" capabilities are cyber insurers demanding? What is the role of multi-factor authentication, microsegmentation, secure web gateways and zero trust network access?

This invitation-only roundtable on Cybersecurity and Cyber Insurance Essentials for Retailers in the Ransomware Era will provide answers to these and other critical questions.

Guided by insights from cyber insurance expert Jason Ozin, Group CISO at PIB Group, as well as Akamai Solution Engineer Chris Campbell, the roundtable will also draw on the experiences of the attendees, who will discuss best practices for defending against ransomware and other top cyber threats.

Discussion points will include:
How are risks to retailers changing in the ransomware era?
What are essential cybersecurity defenses?
What is the role of cyber insurance in prevention as well as response?

You will have the opportunity to discuss cybersecurity risk quantification with a handful of senior executives in an informal, virtual setting, from which you will emerge with new strategies and solutions you can immediately put to work.
