Computer Fraud Insurance: Coverage for Ransomware and Cybercrime After G&G v. Continental Western
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will explore coverage under non-standalone cyber insurance policies for computer fraud and ransomware, examining such coverage under property, crime, kidnap & ransom, and D&O, among others.
- Coverage under crime policies vs. under cyber liability and data security policies
- G&G Oil Co. v. Continental Western Ins. Co.
- Application of case law to policy forms
- Strategies and practical considerations
The panel will review these and other pivotal issues:
- Under what types of coverage might insureds seek coverage for losses due to ransomware, other than cyber?
- On what grounds might insurers challenge coverage under non-standalone cyber policies for ransomware and hacking related losses?
- Is the ransom payment covered?
- How have courts interpreted the clause "resulting directly from the use of a computer"?
- What facts may demonstrate that computer access was "fraudulent"?
