Understanding Cyber Insurance & Quantifying Risk

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

The cyber insurance industry is in turmoil as more and more businesses seek insurance protection against the onslaught of advanced threats, particularly ransomware, while both carriers and those seeking insurance lack the ability to automate risk and financial models to calculate security control improvements, improve response times and reduce exposure.

A deeper investigation into the forces behind the changes taking place in the cyber insurance market reveals three major challenges:

  1. Insurance underwriters rely on a highly manual, point-in-time approach to gathering data and assessing a company’s cyber risk exposure.
  2. Underwriters lack the ability to correlate loss data to vulnerabilities, deficient controls, misconfigured hardware or software, and the ability of an attacker to successfully compromise a critical application or system.
  3. Security assessments are conducted once before binding coverage and not revisited again until it’s time to renew the policy. In many cases, security assessments that are conducted on behalf of an underwriter are never shared with the company seeking insurance.
