Beard Winter LLP’s Cary Schneider and Greg Markell, President & CEO of Ridge Canada Cyber Solutions have co-authored the article Covering Your Interruption, which appears in the April 2018 issue (pg. 17) of Canadian Underwriter for the publication’s 2018 Risk Report.
Excerpt from Canadian Underwriter:
As companies become more dependent on technology, including the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence, to operate a business, cyber-attacks will continue to increase exponentially. Cyber insurance will become a “must have” form of insurance; business interruption will undoubtedly be an essential element of the policy. Understanding the uniqueness and role of business interruption in the context of cyber insurance is fundamental to the insurer-insured relationship.
Cary Schneider is a partner at Beard Winter LLP specializing in insurance and civil litigation matters including the growing area of cyber and privacy law.
