Cyber Crime and the Rise of Social Engineering

Wednesday, 18 October 2017 | 09:00 to 10:30 BST
Marsh, Tower Place East, London, EC3R 5BU

Join Marsh’s subject matter experts at our “Cyber Crime and the Rise of Social Engineering” event as we discuss the latest threats, greatest risks, potential impacts, and mitigation measures relevant in today’s digital economy.

Cyber crime and social engineering fraud is widespread and rapidly increasing, and can result in devastating financial consequences for affected companies. Insurance can be an effective tool to back up your risk management practices in the event of a successful attack, but cover needs to be tailored appropriately.

Due to high demand, we are re-running the first seminar we held in February, which will explore how social engineering fraud has developed, some of the risks you should consider, and how to protect yourself and your business from fraudsters. The discussion will include:

  • The evolution of hacking. From simple defacements, to fraudsters using CCTV cameras to hack your favourite websites.
  • The boundary between crime policies and cyber insurance, and the challenge of ensuring you select the right cover.
  • Whether crime policies are relevant for today's exposures. Ensuring that cover is fit for purpose and the coverage gaps you should watch out for.

This event will include a live hacking demonstration to show just how easy it is for a fraudster to break into a system.
