Cyber warfare and terrorism have become increasingly common and a dangerous feature of international conflicts. Unlike traditional military attacks, a cyberattack can be launched instantaneously from any distance and with little obvious evidence of any build-up. Keith Wojcieszek, Managing Director in the Cyber Risk practice of Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, will join an expert panel at the virtual NetDiligence Cyber Risk Summit to discuss the implications of online conflict and the key components to be mindful of.
As conflicts arise online between nation-states, Keith will further discuss the strong desire to determine responsibility following a cyberattack. However, correctly attributing a threat actor is a serious challenge, and with no clear rules governing online conflict, there is a risk that incidents could rapidly escalate out of control. The panel will also discuss insurance coverage as the “Acts of War” policies exclude insurance providers from covering damage or loss that may result from online military conflicts, including terrorism.
