By Casey C. Sullivan, Esq. on March 14, 2017 6:57 AM

Cyber insurance is the fastest growing area of the insurance market -- by leaps and bounds. The cyber insurance market is exploding, as companies look to insulate themselves from liabilities stemming from hacking, data breaches, and the like. The ABA is even selling cyber insurance to lawyers now.

Today, cyber insurance isn't just something that lawyers need to consider adding to their insurance plans. It's something they need to understand from a legal perspective.

Staying Ahead of the Cyber Insurance Curve

If you're looking to learn about the latest cyber insurance trends, an upcoming event by the Rutter Group is a great way to start. (Disclosure: The Rutter Group is FindLaw's sister company.) The program, Cutting-Edge Insurance Trends, is the perfect place to brush up on the most cutting-edge insurance trend: cyber insurance.

The program will address cyber insurance basics, such as what is typically covered under a cyber policy, as well as complex legal issues, such as how statutes like HIPAA can impact cyber insurance. There will even be a presentation of the current, but limited, caselaw related to cyber insurance. The event will be moderated by Judge Rex Heeseman, of the Los Angeles Superior Court, and will feature a handful of seasoned insurance litigators.

But Wait, There's More

Of course, cyber insurance isn't the only important trend in the insurance industry, nor is it the only topic covered at the event. The program will also address developments in "top off the policy," bad faith and punitive damages, insurance class actions, and ethical considerations. The event will be held live in Los Angeles on April 12th, and replayed in San Francisco on May 24th. Participants are eligible for 3 hours of California MCLE credit.

But what if you're not in California? Don't worry! The program will also be available online and via CD and DVD.

If learning about developments in insurance law from top practitioners isn't enough to entice you, here's one more bonus. Enrollees will have access to two essential Rutter Group practice guides, at half price. The Rutter Group's California Practice Guides for Insurance Litigation and Civil Procedure Before Trial will both be available for purchase, discounted by more than $300 each. Those savings alone are more than enough to recoup the cost of attendance.

If you're a legal practitioner in the insurance sphere, or are just looking to keep on top of the latest developments in insurance, cyber and otherwise, go ahead and sign up now!
