Cyber Risk Insurance Forum campaign launched

 
CYBER RISK INSURANCE FORUM starts work 
 
Link to Cyber Risk Insurance Forum  The Cyber Risk Insurance Forum (CRIF), the group established to develop a security framework for companies taking out cyber insurance, has held its inaugural meeting, expanding its membership and developing two lines of focus for its on-going campaign.
 
Global information assurance firm NCC Group, with Liberty International Underwriters (LIU), Zurich Insurance, CNA Europe and Oval, established the group earlier this year under the Cyber Insurance Working Group title.
 
The founding members have now increased to include Thales, Continuity Forum, ACE Insurance and Hill & Knowlton, bringing together a broader spectrum of thought leaders.
 
CRIF Chairman, Daljitt Barn said: “Cyber insurance doesn’t mitigate the risk of suffering a cyber attack in itself, but if combined with cyber risk best practice, it will. Driving development of those guidelines depends on making organisations aware of the risks that they face.”
 
The Cyber Risk Insurance Forum seeks to develop a framework of recommended information security practices and policies to support the uptake of cyber insurance, protecting insurers and businesses alike.
 
The name change was implemented following the group’s first meeting, as part of a concerted focus on risk mitigation. 
 
Matthew Hogg of LIU, a founding Member of CRIF explains: “We realise from our discussions with industry that a two-pronged attack is necessary to drive our campaign forward."

Managing Risk - Risk & Security in a Complex World, 18th May 2010

When you think about risks posed by IT today, your concerns go way beyond what’s happening in the data centre or the IT department. Because in most organisations, IT has become an essential part of virtually every business process. As a result, managing Risk now means much more than protecting systems and data.  It means protecting the business itself. 

Managing Domestic Terrorism Event

Managing Domestic Terrorism Event - Jan 23rd - South East

Business today faces many new threats, and the management of these threats is rapidly becoming a major factor in business planning.

Is Terrorism just one more threat, or are there specific risks, separate from other business issues, that need to be considered?

Government guidelines are available to all, but how can you be sure that you have understood and adapted the guidelines to suit your own specific requirements? Can you be sure that you have done everything necessary, by law and by logic, to protect your business and your people?

Risk Scenarios ... how well are we prepared?

 

The Cold War may be history, but with threats ranging from global warming to terror cells, Britain's emergency planners are now struggling to prepare for a greater range of potential disasters than ever before.

Since the outcry after the poorest citizens of New Orleans were left marooned in their ruined city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, emergency planning has been thrown " harshly " into the spotlight.

Business starts Planning for Avian Flu effects

The most obvious commercial victim of bird flu - imagined or real - is the multi-million pound poultry industry, which includes egg producers and broiler breeders, as well as those bringing the poultry to market; ranging from supermarkets to restaurants.

For the moment, this sector's most immediate concern is that talk of a possible pandemic will spook consumers.

FIRE, COCKUP AND VIRUS CALAMITY VEX STORAGE MANAGERS

Fire, computer viruses and human error are viewed as the main threats to corporate data by European businesses, according to a survey by storage specialists Hitachi Data Systems. The latest edition of HDS’s bi-annual Storage Index reckons that low-tech 'old fashioned' threats pose the greatest risk of upsetting the operations of European corporates.

When disaster strikes...

Bird flu. Peak oil. Terrorism. Hurricanes... and BCM of course

The past few years have been dominated by these and a thousand other apocalyptic headlines. And businesses, from the smallest SME to the largest multinational, are taking notice. After all, there is something about the feeling of impending catastrophe that tends to concentrate the mind.

With questions of business continuity shooting up the agenda, the disaster planners are in high demand.
