CPCU Society To Host Data Breach Webinar

April 14, 2021 | 1 Comment

The CPCU Society Bermuda Chapter will be hosting a free webinar entitled ‘Is Your Company Ready To Handle Data Breach?’ on Monday [April 19] in order to bring awareness to cyber security.

A spokesperson said, “Hackers know our mentality: it won’t happen to us, we don’t need to spend time preparing, we don’t have the information they want. Unfortunately, organizations hold the keys to the vault containing the new currency: information.

“Hackers know this and have the tools to penetrate a company’s systems and seek to cause havoc. Once inside, hackers will take client and employee information to drain bank accounts, put people in collection, release sensitive medical information, seek to exploit an organization, hold it hostage, and destroy its reputation.
