    Leaders of U.S. organizations rank cybersecurity, employee claims as top directors and officers (D&O) liability concerns: Willis Towers Watson report

    Cybersecurity ranked as the top directors and officers (D&O) liability concern for organizations today, while claims brought by employees, including claims for harassment or discrimination, and regulatory enforcement risks were also identified as critical D&O exposures, according to Willis Towers Watson’s (WLTW) 2018 Management Liability (Directors and Officers) U.S. Survey. According to the report, the top D&O risks “in the coming year” include cyber incident/cyber claims (80%), claims by employees (55%), and regulatory and enforcement risks (48%).  Meanwhile, concern over investor claims ranked seventh among the top concerns, a finding the report said was “surprising” given the rise in shareholder activism and trends in securities class action filings.

    Britain proposes tougher rules for pension advisors

    Investment consultants who advise UK pension schemes face tougher rules under proposals outlined by Britain's anti-monopolies regulator on Wednesday.

    A majority of executives around the world feel their organizations can do better when it comes to learning from their past cyber mistakes, according to the results of a newly released global survey conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and Willis Towers Watson. The EIU surveyed over 450 companies across the globe about their strategies and the challenges they face in building cyber resilient organizations.  While most organizations regard themselves as doing a good job on incident response, only thirteen percent said their organizations were above average in incorporating learnings from cyber incidents into resilience strategies. The survey found little consensus among boards and executives on cyber resiliency planning, including the deployment of strategies across the organization, where to allocate funds, and what areas of the organization are most at risk.
