Anatomy of a Cyber Attack

Join us as we go play-by-play through the different phases of a cyber-attack and look at what happens in depth! This unique event is not one to miss and is structured to help you support clients as well as prepare your own agency!

We will start by talking about how people may become a target (no matter their size), and what goes into various attacks as we pick one to walk through live. Next, take a front row seat as we explore the Incident Response phase and discuss the steps needed to contain and recover from an attack. And last, we'll go deep into the claims phase to talk about what to expect and how cyber claims can be so unique compared to other lines of business.      
This event will include experienced professionals that share their personal experiences with things like ethical hacking/penetration testing, incident response plan development and testing, and cyber liability claims support. 

Includes three hours of Illinois CE (approved).

Stick around after the CE session for bowling, food, drinks and good times.  We will bowl until 6:30, and then encourage groups to go out to dinner and take in the local area.
