Big thanks to our sponsor Shepard Walton King, and our co-presenter, Josh White from Evolve Insurance.


Key takeaways:

  • Due to how new the cyber insurance market is, there is no standard for coverage, each policy is different in what it covers and excludes.

  • Lots of fine print means that there are very specific exclusions or coverage limits for various situations.

  • Many firms are lacking basic secure such as enterprise grade firewalls and comprehensive multifactor security.

  • In the event of a breach, there are a lot of common reasons for the claim being denied, which can include:

    • Insufficient IT Security

    • In the case of wire transfers, a second method of verification has to be used such as a phone call

  • “62% of all attacks are on small to mid sized businesses”

  • #1 cause of breaches is human error
