Impact of GDPR Along the Risk Value Chain

29 June 2018, Zürich, Switzerland

GDPR adds a new dimension to the risk management of cloud-based solutions. This seminar will highlight potential implications along the risk value chain.


The Europe Chapter of the Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) Society and the Insurance Institute of Switzerland (IIS) invite you to a seminar on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its potential impact along the risk value chain. GDPR adds another perspective within risk assessment and risk treatment frameworks of companies handling data, especially for cloud service providers. It may turn out to be an important factor for the purchase decision of cyber insurance given the insurability of non-compliance costs like litigation, investigation, compensation and notification of impacted data subjects. The goal of the seminar is to review some aspects of GDPR, discuss its impact on cloud service providers and broaden the discussion to the cyber insurance market to see how the insurability of the non-compliance costs may be integrated.

From compliance and loss prevention aspects for consumers and providers of cloud services, passing by the utility of buying cyber insurance, the state of the union of the cyber insurance market in Europe, a review of associated breach response services, ending with cyber exposure accumulation faced by risk carriers covering them, both from a primary insurance and reinsurance point of views, different perspectives will be presented by the actors active along the risk value chain.

Join us if you want to learn more on the following topics:

What are the main elements of GDPR and what does it mean to be GDPR compliant?

How are the responsibilities shared between cloud service providers and consumers for the different cloud service models?

What are disaster recovery strategies of cloud service providers?

What does the cyber insurance market offer and does it make sense to buy a cyber insurance policy?

What is the state of the cyber insurance market in Europe, the types of coverage, the major players and its possible evolution?

Could GDPR act as a trigger and increase the take up rate of cyber policies?

Following a data breach how can breach response services help?

What kind of cyber risk exposure accumulation frameworks have to be put in place by insurance and reinsurance companies, both for first-party and third-party types of cover? Are there any GDPR specific disaster scenarios, both from a primary insurance and reinsurance point of view? 

Please note that the schedule is subject to change due to the availability of our volunteer speakers. Any changes to the program will be posted here.
