05/30/2017 - Cyber Security Takes Center Stage
"Today boardrooms are discussing cyber exposures with greater in depth knowledge, risk managers are insuring against cyber perils"
At first the situation didn't seem like a big deal until the client called. I remember it like it was yesterday. I just arrived home from work as a cyber insurance underwriter and was settling into my other role as a mom of two high energy boys who were patiently (impatiently) waiting to finish dinner so they could have the rest of the night to wreak havoc on the neighborhood kids in a competitve game of soccer shootouts.

During Thanksgiving weekend 2016, workers at the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) received a rude awakening about just how powerfully cybercrime can affect the “real” world.

Insureds, Vispoli says, are concerned with what she calls the “Swiss cheese” conundrum: “They buy all kinds of insurance to help provide financial protection. But cyber perils impact all insurance products. It's like Swiss cheese, to determine where coverage exists and doesn't. Some coverage forms may include data breach exclusions or even stay silent on certain exposures, while others offer some affirmative coverage, but are not designed to cover all losses stemming from one or multiple breaches.”
