Three Jenner & Block lawyers recently participated in a live webcast titled “Hot Topics in Insurance Coverage-2015,” sponsored by the Illinois State Bar Association Insurance Law Section.  Partner David M. Kroeger served as a coordinator of the program, which examined how property insurance policies can impose examinations under oath (EUO) on the insured in the event of loss or damage; approaches defendants can take to reduce exposure and risk of loss; and how courts are addressing policy language in the context of data breaches, hacking and other cyber issues.  Associate Jan A. Larson discussed insurance coverage for cyber and data risk exposures, both under traditional policies such as Commercial General Liability and Directors & Officers policies and with new insurance products being developed to specifically address these risks.  Associate Matthew S. Riley was the program moderator.
