Eran Kahana Interviewed in Twin Cities Business Magazine Article on Cybersecurity Insurance
September 02, 2016

Eran Kahana, a technology and intellectual property attorney at Maslon, is interviewed in a September 2016 Twin Cities Business magazine article titled, "Cybersecurity Insurance." The article discusses the increasing interest by the business community in cybersecurity insurance, "a type of coverage that has boomed alongside cybercrime in recent years."

Eran recommends that “clients look at cybersecurity coverage as a specialty insurance, and not simply a bolt-on to general liability policy," advising businesses to "get granular with their insurance approach." In the event of a breach, he explains, "a hailstorm of issues" can arise, including both contractual obligations in terms of notification and litigation risks.

"My job is to look at all the different variables that make up a data security picture," Kahana says, adding, "My top advice [to businesses] is to engage with experts to guide them in building not a risk-free but a well-reasoned cybersecurity culture. You can't do this internally by yourself."
