The MEL is proud to announce the formation of the
New Jersey Cyber Risk Management Fund – Cyber JIF
Faced with a hard cyber insurance market and even more limited options for local governments to obtain cyber insurance, the MEL has launched a first-of-its-kind Cyber JIF effective January 1, 2023.
Modeled after the MEL’s Environmental Risk Management Fund, the Cyber JIF will offer cyber insurance coverage and risk management tools to assist local governments with mitigating the financial and security risks of cyber threats in today’s landscape.
