Partner Carolyn Purwin Ryan joins the faculty of the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance’s (CLM) 2021 Claims College, teaching in the School of Cyber Claims on September 10, 2021 in Baltimore, MD.
Instructing during the “Cyber Event Tabletop Exercise,” Carolyn and her co-instructor Catherine Lyle, Head of Claims at Coalition, run “Level 2” students through a hands-on cybersecurity incident. Designed to provide an opportunity for students to apply their “Level 1” knowledge, Carolyn and Catherine simulate a real-life cyber incident scenario allowing students to immerse themselves in the various issues that arise during the life of a cyber incident response. This includes how to appropriately react after the discovery of an incident; an introduction to the various roles and responsibilities of the incident response team, including third-party vendors; assisting in understanding the competing concerns and issues that arise during the response; and teaching on the implications of each action taken during the incident response. Related cyber insurance issues, as well as third-party claims, is also taught.
The School of Cyber Claims at CLM’s Claims College provides participants with technical and practical knowledge to proactively and effectively manage claims arising under traditional insurance policies and stand-alone cyber insurance policies. Students also gain a comprehensive understanding of privacy and data protection principles, regulations and laws, and learn cutting-edge strategies to resolve cyber claims. After a successful completion of all three levels of the School of Cyber Claims, graduates earn a Certified Claims Professional in Cyber Claims designation from CLM.
