Peter Halprin Explains How New SEC Cyber Reporting Rule Could Affect Insurance Coverage in Business Insurance Interview
Partner Peter Halprin discussed a new cybersecurity rule issued by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in July 2023 that requires businesses to report material cyber breaches.
