Underwriters Seeking Better D&O Risk

by | Feb 29, 2016

Company managers have become much more savvy about D&O liability insurance. This has come as a result of many years of corporate scandals where top key executives were held personally responsible for everything from poor accounting practices to data breaches.

Director and Officer Liability Insurance

It’s a small wonder that cyber security is one of the major topics of conversation in corporate America. Enterprise risk management was once a subject rarely discussed at board meetings and yet today it has become a major issue. Victims are finding their way to lawyers and mounting massive lawsuits against certain directors and officers, claiming that they failed to oversee proper protection of sensitive customer data.

If you’re the CFO, odds are that you’ve had a few anxious discussions with your Board of Directors about the current state of cyber risk. Corporations of all sizes have suffered cyber attacks in recent years. Even the Office of Personnel Management for our own government suffered a breach in early 2014 that was not reported right away and subsequently under-reported to those affected. This has left consumers very suspicious and concerned that no organization may be adequately protected against data breaches.
