Cyber Liability Seminar

NCW will be hosting Senior Professional Liability Broker and Certified Cyber Liability Specialist, Matt Sheehan, for a Privacy/Cyber Liability Seminar on Thursday, January 22nd at 10am at the Amarillo College Downtown Campus, located at 1314 S. Polk Street. World-wide connectivity makes it increasingly inevitable that many businesses will have some type of privacy/cyber liability event occur.  Featured speaker Matt Sheehan, will help area business leaders understand how to navigate the complexity of privacy/cyber liability exposure and provide valuable insight about how to mitigate exposures.


Matthew Sheehan has been an award winning Senior Professional Liability Broker for CRC Insurance Services for the past 9 years helping businesses navigate professional, executive, and privacy/cyber liability exposures. Accolades include CRC Co-Professional Broker of the Year 2013, CRC High Flyer Award Winner 2008, 2009, 2010 for 25% year over year growth, and CRC Eagle Award winner 2011, 2012, 2013 for over $1M in production revenue.

Privacy/cyber insurance is a particular passion for Matthew, as he became CE Certified to teach cyber liability classes in the State of Texas 8 years ago, long before any interest or volume was created in insurance for small to middle market businesses. Matthew has developed privacy/cyber products with Hiscox and QBE from their infancy to the multi-faceted products that are now offered to the marketplace, and continues to aid those carriers in product development.

His education at the University of Notre Dame, participation in the industry renowned General Reinsurance “Jump School” and Underwriting Training program, and Registered Professional Liability Underwriter, Management Liability Insurance Specialist, and Chartered Property Casualty Insurance designations have provided a solid foundation on which to identify, assess, and address Cyber/Privacy exposures through an insurance contract with an eye on innovation.

“Every business owner must take the threat of privacy breaches and cyber security seriously and put in place the necessary safe guards to protect the data that an operation stores or uses.” – Kimberly Dryden, Partner and Risk Manager NCW Insurance.

Who should attend:

  • Manufacturing, services and technology: Intellectual property is one of the most valuable business assets. Lose it and you could lose that secret ingredient that sets you apart from your competitors.
  • Healthcare Providers and Wellness Program Administrators: People trust your organization with sensitive information, including personal health information (PHI).
  • Retail, accommodation and food services: Before handing over personal details during a transaction or when signing up for a loyalty program, customers want to feel safe. Breaches in retail situations are the most predictable.
  • Financial Services: Your status as a high-value target means that you are likely to attract more directed and tenacious criminal attention.
  • Law Firms: Improper document disposal, stolen laptops and tablets, and bypassing of internal security protocols are identified as the three major categories of cyber risk for attorneys.
  • Architects: Computer networks are used to keep track of projects, payments and customer information.
  • Accountants: Taxpayer records. Imagine the exposure of client files that are backed up on an unencrypted flash drive?
  • Employers that keep employees’ personal information such as driver’s license numbers, social security numbers and dates of birth.
  • Business owners that maintain financial account records electronically.
  • Business owners that take payment by credit or debit card.
