Chubb cybersecurity insurance experts Tony Dolce, a Vice President of North American Financial Lines Claims, and John Graham, Vice President and Cyber Product Manager for Commercial Insurance, will discuss the latest cyber threats faced by media organizations and the lessons learned from past experiences at the Media Financial Management Association’s (MFM) 2018 CFO Summit. MFM’s CFO Summit is scheduled for March 8-9, at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Hilton.
Dolce and Graham will also review the best practices for mitigating losses and how organizations can present themselves as a “good cyber risk” when looking for a cyber insurance policy. MFM has endorsed Chubb as the preferred commercial insurer for its members.
“Ransomware and other cyber-attacks continue to wreak havoc on virtually all commercial enterprises, unfortunately media organizations number among the top targets,” said Mary M. Collins, President and CEO of MFM and its BCCA subsidiary, which serves as the media industry’s credit association. “With the help of Chubb experts Tony Dolce and John Graham, our CFO Summit attendees will get a first-hand look at the cyber threat landscape and the best ways to protect their organizations from harm.”
