Access, Tune-Up, and Leverage the Value of Your Cyber Insurance Policy

A smart risk transfer strategy can mean the difference between a cost-effective cyber insurance policy that delivers the expected claims payout and a costly policy that leaves you responsible for much of the high costs of a data breach.

How are new carrier strategies changing the way businesses approach cyber insurance?

Successfully leveraging cyber insurance is more challenging than ever. Cyber insurance providers have become more experienced with the relationship between an insured’s information security program management practices and paid claims.
As a result, carriers have set stronger risk management thresholds for obtaining policies, increased premiums and deductibles, and limited coverage. They have also instituted reporting requirements in addition to the communications protocols that must be followed in the event of a covered breach.
That can equate to higher costs and lower value for insureds.
