6 Considerations When Buying Cyber Insurance

As more and more companies have experienced data breaches in recent years, the market for cyber insurance has grown exponentially. However, unlike other forms of insurance, cyber insurance is not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Most cyber policies are offered a la carte, allowing policyholders to negotiate terms and conditions and purchase the coverage that fits their needs.

The level of coverage your business needs can vary depending on your range of exposure, and it's important to work with a broker who can tailor a policy to match your business' requirements.

The following are items to keep in mind when building the ideal coverage:

  • Limits and sublimits
  • Retroactive coverage
  • Exclusions
  • Panel provisions
  • Consent provisions
  • Vendor acts and omissions

Are You Adequately Covered? 

Cyber insurance is a relatively new form of coverage - one that will continue to evolve alongside emerging cyber threats. As such, cyber insurance requires organizations to be proactive in assessing their risks and ensuring that their insurance coverages are in line with their specific business practices and exposures.
