Presenter:  Eric Rody
Description:  LSC began purchasing cyber insurance approximately 5 years ago. The renewal date for the policy is November 15, 2021 and the policy is brought to us through the Mitchell Agency. The cyber insurance market has seen a drastic increase in claims since the start of COVID-19 and upon Board approval our policy will renew at the renewal date. We are fortunate that a vast majority of the industry standards for internal control of internet and email usage are being implemented by our corporation. A few of those steps can be increased and administration will be working to that end over the next year. The administration recommends approval of cyber insurance renewal through the Mitchell Agency.
