The Bond County Board was visited Tuesday night by an agent from one of its insurance carriers.
Kevin Kern from Snedecker Risk Management reported things have changed regarding cyberliability coverage. He said all cyberliability insurers in the marketplace, within the last nine months, have collectively agreed this is the new standard for cyber coverage. He said individuals hacking into systems are the reason. He said the issue has already impacted southern Illinois.
