1:00 PM CT
Please join Aon leaders to discuss Aon’s 2020 Cyber Security Risk Report: Solving the Cyber Puzzle: The Unexpected Ways Cyber Risk Impacts Your Business. The report demonstrates the breadth and depth of our collective understanding of cyber risk across Aon. In it, we focus on the unexpected ways that cyber risk impacts clients, in six less appreciated areas – Intellectual Property, Mergers and Acquisitions, Retirement, Executives, Computer Crime and The Corporation.
Our experience allows us not only to see the entire puzzle but also how the pieces fit together. Part of the report provides a playbook for each highlighted risk to help organizations “solve” the ever-more-complex puzzle that is cyber risk. In this webinar, we will discuss each of the often-overlooked risks facing companies this year and offer guidance to help wrap cyber security around corporate strategy.
