Understanding the Changing Cyber Liability Insurance Landscape

In 2022 and beyond, cybercrime is a growing and ever-evolving threat to your businesses. Large and small organizations alike need to prepare their systems to face this reality. In addition to securing your network and endpoints, having cyber liability insurance coverage is a must to conduct business against the background of the 100 billion dollar cybercriminal landscape.

What is cyber liability insurance?

For those of you who have not enrolled in a cyber liability insurance policy, it is an insurance plan that provides businesses with a combination of coverage options to help protect the company from data breaches and other cybersecurity issues such as ransomware, network hack, and more. It’s not a question of if your organization will suffer a breach, but when.

Understanding the changing cyber liability insurance landscape

Insurance carriers have significantly increased the underwriting requirements of coverage this year beyond what has been previously in place. Though requirements vary somewhat depending on the carrier, we know that they are all beyond what’s currently required under various statewide regulations. New policy AND existing policy renewals for cyber liability coverage will be impacted and meeting these requirements will likely include changes in process and the addition of new technology tools and management.

Additional areas of interest this year include:

  • Multi-Factor Authentication on Remote Connections such as VPN
  • Multi-Factor Authentication on all administrative accounts
  • Endpoint Detection & Response solutions for the organization
  • Full Device Encryption, and more.

These requirements use a mix of new software AND hardware tools to accomplish and are beyond many of the protections in place today. They also will potentially change how users work when outside of the office.

How your business can meet the changing cyber insurance requirements

As your organization approaches your cyber liability renewal period or is looking to increase your current plan coverage, please reach out to KiteTech and your Client Experience Manager.

What your business needs to know About New Cyber Insurance Requirements

Cyber crime is now one of the largest industries worldwide, costing companies a combined $100-billion or more each year. Small and midsized businesses are preferred targets because these attacks are automated, allowing criminals to easily infiltrate them with viruses and ransomware.

As a result, insurance carriers are leading the charge in security measures and have significantly increased the underwriting requirements of cyber liability coverage. Though requirements vary somewhat depending on the carrier, we know that they are all beyond what’s currently required under NAIC and various statewide regulations. New policy and existing policy renewals for cyber liability coverage will be impacted and meeting these requirements will likely include changes in process and the addition of new technology tools and management.

Examples of changes being requested by many cyber liability carriers include:
