Cyber insurance is a much discussed but ill understood topic that has made a resurgence among some in Washington as the silver bullet solution for information security. While the promise has yet to deliver on the hype, there are reasons to believe that insurance is a useful tool for firms of all shapes and sizes in investing in security.

Join New America's Cybersecurity Initiative and Just Security for conversations with leading experts in cyber security policy and practice to discuss the mechanics of cyber insurance and how to reinvigorate a moribund insurance marketplace.

Follow @NewAmCyber and @just_security for live coverage of the event. Join the conversation using #BeyondBreaches.
