The Hartford Offers Free Online Course to Help Agents Identify, Protect Clients from Cyber Risks

August 21, 2002

Recognizing that more education is needed to help business customers understand and protect against their technology-related exposures, The Hartford Financial Services Group is offering a free online course to agents.

The course, which defines e-business risk broadly as any process a business organization conducts using technology, helps identify and address some key coverage questions that have emerged as a result of the surge in Internet usage. It also discusses many of the most common e-business exposures.

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:

* Comprehend some of the impacts of the Internet on commercial insurance exposures;
* Identify where traditional P&C forms fall short in addressing clients’ e-business coverage needs;
* Recognize some common e-business exposures; and
* Suggest risk management procedures clients can implement to control their e-business exposures.

The course is available online and at no cost to any agent. It can be accessed at The Hartford’s agent education Web site. The URL is: The Hartford School of Insurance plans to offer free courses at this site on a continuing basis.
