When an enterprise purchases cyber insurance, negotiation can make a big difference. Sometimes you can get more value from the insurer simply by knowing to ask for a particular service or clause in the policy. Other times, you may be able to negotiate substantial changes to a proposed policy by citing case studies or experiences from other similarly-situated enterprises. Commonly, to get the best value, you are wise to engage the services of an attorney who is experienced in representing the interests of commercial policy holders. This webcast will examine key topics to consider in negotiation, and explain some relevant war stories.
