Cyber Insurance: Great Idea or Too Good to Be True?

John Pironti (President, IP Architects)

Date: Thursday, October 25

Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm

Session Type: Hot Topic

Vault Recording: TBD

Unpleasant surprises await the person who doesn’t think much about the cyber insurance policy they have (or don’t have) until they need it. In this Hot Topics guided discussion, learn about the promising possibilities and potential pitfalls of cyber insurance from an industry expert - veteran security consultant John Pironti - and your own peers.

What does cyber insurance cover and not cover? Do you really need a separate policy just for cyber incidents? When has insurance let your fellow cybersecurity pros down, and when has it held them up? Considering that insurers won’t pay out unless you’ve already implemented certain security controls, should you skip the insurance costs and invest more in security measures? Can you use a cyber insurance policy as an effective risk mitigation tool, even if you never need to make a claim? Talk it out with other security pros before you need to call the claims agent.
