Title: What to Know About Cyber Insurance
Description: Among many other things, 2021 has brought a 93% increase in ransomware attacks. In fact, according to Check Point Research's Cyber Attack Trends: 2021 Mid-Year Report, more than 1,200 organizations worldwide fall victim to a ransomware attack each week, and all enterprises are at risk.
With cyber attacks continuing to grow in terms of volume and scale, many organizations are looking into cyber insurance for protection. The problem is that the cyber insurance market is confusing, premiums are skyrocketing, and coverages vary drastically between providers. On top of that, providers are being pressured to implement strict security requirements and risk assessments before issuing coverage.
Join SBS and a guest panel of cyber insurance experts to get the answers to common questions about what is happening in the cyber insurance market. We will cover what organizations can expect from providers, what homework should be done before choosing a provider, the most important things to look for in your coverage options, and more.
