Recent headlines underscore the security challenges faced by public-facing businesses. From physical threats to cyber attacks targeting a wide range of critical infrastructure, companies in diverse sectors, such as the financial, retail, entertainment, energy, transportation, real estate, communications and other areas, face a challenging landscape of risks and potential liabilities. Join us on October 28, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. EST, for a webinar to discuss these issues, including why companies should consider SAFETY Act protection and how to obtain it.
Those exposed to these threats, including providers of security services and products, face the potential of bodily injury to customers and employees, serious damage to facilities and operations, extended business disruption, and significant reputational harm as well as years of costly litigation – notwithstanding best efforts to protect against dangerous persons and events. The SAFETY Act, administered by the Department of Homeland Security, is coming of age as an important tool to reduce risk and limit liability. Congress passed the SAFETY Act in the wake of the 9/11 attacks for the purpose of limiting the third-party liability of companies with sound security programs or services. A SAFETY Act designation or certification complements a company’s traditional insurance policies to mitigate the potential liabilities from a cyber or physical attack.
In this webinar, participants will learn why companies in various sectors are seeking SAFETY Act protection and how to obtain it. We also will provide key suggestions on how to structure an insurance program to avoid gaps and pitfalls in today’s interconnected economy.
