RM 101: Cyber Insurance Fundamentals


During our “Risk Management 101: Cyber Insurance Fundamentals” podcast, we explain the three basic steps to reining in cyber risk: access, manage, and be ready.

We review:

  • The two types of cyber insurance: first-party insurance and third-party coverage or liability insurance.
  • How insurance protects against cyber-extortion and ransomware.
  • Vicarious liability.
  • Why insurance is an important part of an organization’s cyber defenses but not the only part.

We wrap up by touching on trends in cyber insurance purchasing patterns and in the cyber insurance market.
