This Blog covers the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section's series of podcasts, teleconferences, and live programs dedicated to Disaster Preparedness and Response. It addresses issues arising out of disasters caused by foreign and domestic acts of terrorism, by negligent acts, by natural events and by threats to our cyber-security and will confront the issues of preparedness, risk management, recovery and response, liability, insurance, claims and litigation.
The February 2012 Washington State Bar News had this great article covering cyber attacks and other disasters. The article focused on the programming put on by the ABA's Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section in Seattle in October 2011 as part of TIPS' Disaster Preparedness and Response Intitative. The article goes indepth into cyber terrorism and other disasters and quotes from the speakers at the TIPS program. For those interested in this program, it is available at the West LegalEd Center for viewing and CLE credit. Just click here.
