Nicely done video here on D&O liability insurance by The Guarantee Company of North America:

The increase in number and magnitude of legal actions against Boards of Directors and corporate officers has precipitated demand for Directors & Officers Insurance from all sectors of public and private business, industry and not-for-profit organizations. www.gcna.com
