Course description

Reading and Understanding a Corporate Insurance Policy

Gain an understanding of your company's insurance policies and provide guidance regarding the key coverages available to businesses.

In an era where natural and man-made disasters and accidents are commonplace and frequently involve liability associated with property damage, injury involving the use of social media and big data, it is imperative for business leaders and owners to be acutely aware of their company's insurance program. A well-managed and thoughtfully procured insurance program commonly provides a defense from a lawsuit, provides indemnity for any covered claim, settlement, or judgment, and provides coverage for property damage or business interruptions caused by natural disasters. This course will cover the most common forms of first and third-party insurance available for businesses, including property coverage, commercial general liability insurance (CGL), directors and officers liability (D&O), errors and omissions liability (E&O), cyber liability, and employment practices liability (EPLI) coverage. It will explain the core principles of insurance law that you should be mindful of when reading your policy that will inform your negotiation of the terms and conditions of the policy and understanding of the risks covered by the policy. The topic will conclude with an in-depth discussion of how to read and understand your corporate insurance policy, including the most significant terms and conditions, and emphasize how different areas of the policy may change depending on the type of coverage and risks at issue.

Who should attend?

This live webinar is designed for presidents, vice presidents, directors, business owners, managers, and attorneys.
