Member Emily Taylor recently conducted a training seminar for claims handling professionals regarding cybersecurity and data breach liability claims for public entities in Tennessee. Ms. Taylor explained the procedure for coordinating responses with IT professionals and claims personnel to data breach incidents, including ransomware and malware attacks. Ms. Taylor also reviewed the requirements of Tennessee’s data breach notification statute, including Tenn. Code Ann. § 47-18-2107, and how public entities and other businesses should respond to a data breach incident. Data breach claims, and cyber-liability policies, are an increasingly common reality for both public and private entities, and Watson Roach offers experience and expertise in handling cyber-liability claims and coordinating responses to data breach and ransomware incidents.
